The less irritating SLES (sodium lauryl) to the skin by the ethoxylation process of SLS (sodium lauryl sulfate), which is irritant to the skin,is found in foam-forming products such as 1,4-dioxane, shampoo, liquid soap, dishwashing detergent, shower gel. ether sulfate). Therefore, there is a risk of the presence of 1,4-dioxane in SLES-containing products.

Cosmetic products, especially shampoos, shower gels and detergents, pose a risk for 1,4-dioxane.

1,4-Dioxane is readily absorbed from the skin. Especially in bath products where the skin is heated and the pores are open, the absorption increases even more.

It is classified as a possible carcinogenic compound in humans by the American EPA (Environmental Protection Agency) and the International Cancer Research Agency (Group 2B).
