In the dry state, this product is very irritating for the respiratory tract. Get out in the open air, wear gloves, aMASK (to powder with filter ideally) and glasses during handling. Once integrated into a formula there is no more danger.

And all transparency ....

In the long term, some people have reported an irritation of the scalp. It is undoubtedly preferable to remain reasonable on the quantities.

It is mainly its production that causes problem.SCI is a product obtained by ethoxylation. Ethoxylated products are not dangerous but the process is not very ecological (use of ethylene oxide, a reactive, toxic, carcinogenic and mutagenic gas). The SCI, more precisely, is obtained thanks to a reaction between hydrochloric acid and isothionate sodium, itself obtained from a reaction between bisulfite sodium and ethylene oxide. After purification there is normally no trace of ethylene oxide in the SCI, but it could be contaminated with dioxane (1.4-Dioxane), an irritating substance suspected of being carcinogenic and derived from ethylene oxide ( whatever this is rare). In addition, ethoxylated products are not very biodegradable.

It is all the same on the 1 of 10 (excellent) side by the EWG's Skin which does not indicate any environmental toxicity.
