Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), or sodium dodecyl sulfate (SDS), is a great surfactant, which can remove oil contamination effectively. It is highly biodegradable (>90%), and is commonly used in textile industry and detergent industry.
The excellent properties in terms of emulsifying, foaming, penetrating, cleaning, and dispersing make Sodium lauryl sulfate a suitable raw material for many products, such as toothpaste, food, shampoo, detergent, and plastic. Besides, it also can be used in industries like pharmacy, papermaking, construction materials production, chemical production, and so on.
