Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate (SLES)

Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate is an anionic surfactant found in many personal care and detergent products. Natural or synthetic derived with 2 or 3 moles Ethylene oxide (EO). The key properties are thickening, foaming and detergency.

As a leading Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulphate manufacturer and supplier, we produce a variety of SLES strengths including 28% (Airsurf ES28) and 70% (Airsurf ES70) to cater for market requirements.

Raw material prices can fluctuate so we offer the flexibility of having natural derived material and synthetic. Customers may also require “palm” free so in this case we can offer the synthetic grades. Our products available are Airsurf ES28, Airsurf ES70 (28% & 70%) Naturally derived plus 2 moles Ethylene Oxide. Airsurf SS 28, Airsurf SS70 (26% & 70 %) Synthetic derived plus 3 moles Ethylene oxide (EO).
