Sodium Lauryl Sulfate Dangerous: Fact or Myth

SLS dangers

BUBBLES!  Do you expect bubbles or suds in order to feel like something is clean?  So did I.  Then I began learning about chemicals and learned that we are actually trained to need that.  You know what makes those bubbles?  A toxic chemical called…

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate… SLS.

It is a surfactant added to everything from toothpaste and laundry soap to shampoo and hand soap. It is a foaming agent, which, for the last 80-100 years we have been trained to associate with ‘clean’.

But at what cost can an idea of ‘clean’ come?

  • Skin and Eye Irritations
  • Organ Toxicity
  • Developmental/Reproductive Toxicity
  • Neurotoxicity
  • Endocrine Disruption
  • Biochemical or Cellular Changes
  • Possible Mutations
  • Cancer

Whew, that was a mouthful! On the whole, nothing I want on me, and certainly nothing I want on my loved ones.

I remember when we first started cleaning up our systems and home, I remember going through and replacing everything with a ‘GREEN’, healthy version. When I started learning about individual chemicals, I went to the kitchen and flipped over my bottle of green cleaner. Guess what? The first ingredient was water. The second… was Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. I was paying MORE for a product that was just as damaging to my system as well as my families. WHY!?


They can write anything they want on a label And… we buy it without really knowing what it is. It happens all the time, friend. To you. To me. To your friend. To your son or daughter. To your mom or dad.  But you don’t have to swallow their lie. By becoming conscious of what is in products and looking at the label, you can protect you and your loved ones from that long list of problems.

I was so angry the day I went running to the kitchen, flipped over my ‘GREEN’ dish soap and found SLS in it.  Not just in it, but at the top of the list.  Thankfully, by then I had discovered Thieves Household Cleaner.  One bottle costs $1.50 and it is made of… PLANTS.  That is all!  You can’t even buy ‘GREEN’ cleaners for that in the organic section of the store.

I began using it for my floors, counters, sinks, windows, tub & shower, toilet… EVERYTHING!  My favorite part is that after I clean my floors and my baby crawls around on it, I’m not poisoning her.

You can get Thieves Household Cleaner in a concentrated bottle here.  1 capful added to a 32oz spray bottle of water is all you need for your counter spray.  1 capful in you mop water is all you need to clean your floors.  It is SO economical and healthy!  My favorite combination :D.

Maybe you want a legit DISH SOAP to replace you chemical laden dish soap, Thieves Dish Soap is just what you need.  A 1/4 tsp is all you need in your sinkful of dishes or in your automatic dishwasher.  LOVE my Thieves products.  They were such an answer to prayer and have served us well year after year after year.

Are you serious about being the gatekeeper of your home?  Are you serious about putting a stop to chemicals coming in your home?  Are you serious about wanting to avoid that long list of ill effects above?  If you answered yes to any of these questions then it is time to get your Thieves coming and kick your toxic chemicals out!

You’ll get a welcome pack from me and the support of an amazing online community!  This is your time!  Time to feel better and help your body and your family!
