Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate [SLES] Market Challenges
Long-term Side Effect and Controversies on Palm Oil
Petroleum and plant sources such as coconut and palm oil are used to make sodium lauryl ether sulfate. Because of their origin, sulfates derived from petroleum are frequently contentious. The most serious concern is sulfate production’s long-term effects. Greenhouse gas emissions, climate change, and pollution are all linked to petroleum products. Some plant products contain sulfates as well. Long-term use of sodium lauryl ether sulfate can irritate the eyes, skin, and lungs. Sodium lauryl ether sulfate may contain a substance called 1,4-dioxane, which has been shown to cause cancer in laboratory animals. During the manufacturing process, contamination occurs. The destruction of tropical rainforests for palm tree plantations has made palm oil controversial. Sulfate-containing products that are washed down the drain could be toxic to aquatic animals. Many people and businesses are opting for more environmentally friendly options. Thus, such controversies related to petroleum and palm oil derivatives may act as a stumbling block to the market’s expansion.
