What do you know?...

I found a note in my purse that simply said, "sodium lauryl sulfate." I couldn't remember why I wrote it down, but since I had I performed an Internet search to see what it is.

Here is some of what I found on Healthy-Communications.com: "This inexpensive detergent is commonly used in cosmetic cleansers, hair shampoos, bath and shower gels, bubble baths, etc. - It is probably the most dangerous ingredient used in skin and hair-care products. In the cleaning industry SLS is used in garage floor cleaners, engine degreasers, car-wash soaps, etc. It is very corrosive and readily attacks greasy surfaces."

What do you know about this chemical? And, if you read something like this regarding chemicals and things that are in everyday products, do you believe it and change your buying habits or products?

Sometimes I may change and other times I may not. It's difficult to determine what the long-term affects are going to be when it's something you've already been using for a long time and also it's sometimes difficult to believe because they're always studies, reports, etc., being published about stuff like this.

What's your take?
