Sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate are harsh anionic synthetic surfactants which can be harmful to the skin and more precisely the follicle. They remove too much fat from the skin, mucosae and the hair, thereby removing all the natural defenses.
Sebum, sweat and hydrating factors removed as a result can no longer protect the skin and mucosae, which become more permeable to foreign bodies, starting with the surfactant itself which penetrates and causes further damage. One of the more harmful aspects of these sulfate or sulfonate surfactants discovered recently is their toxicity to enzymes. In fact, the skin has numerous enzymatic activities which are helpful to life and physiological skin processes. The action of detergents blocks them and causes long-term significant alterations. The first and most evident effect is excessive dryness of the skin or lifeless hair.
