Solid, it is in the form of white granules or powder. Once integrated into a formula, it is soft for the eyes and biodegradable. It has a pH of 4.5 to 6.0 in a 10%water solution. Soluble in water, insoluble in oil.

Harmful for aquatic organizations so overwhelmed massively in a watercourse (no problem when integrated in a formula that respects the recommended concentrations).

It's clear…

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

It is mainly its production that is problematic. 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, carcinogen and mutagenic gas). The SCI, more precisely, is obtained thanks to a reaction between hydrochloric acid and sodium isethionate, itself obtained from a reaction between sodium bisulfite 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 oxide D 'Ethylene (although it is rare). In addition, ethoxylated products are not very biodegradable.

It is still on the 1 of 10 (excellent) by the EWG’s Skin which does not indicate any environmental toxicity.
