Albany, NY -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/19/2019 -- Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate Market – Snapshot
Sodium lauroyl isethionate (SLI) is a mild surfactant used in various personal care applications. Sodium lauroyl isethionate exhibits excellent detergency and it is employed as a cleansing agent in several applications such as shampoos, facial care products, body washes, and toothpastes. However, it can be harmful to the skin and can cause irritation when used in higher concentrations or in quantities above the standard limits. Sodium lauroyl isethionate is formulated by using fatty acids combined with isethionic acid. Isethionic acid is derived from sodium bisulfite and aqueous solution of ethylene oxide. However, ethylene oxide is a carcinogenic substance. This may act as a restraining factor for the market.
Increasing awareness about use of sulfate-free mild surfactants through advertisements has led to increase in sales of shampoos, conditioners, and other personal care products containing sodium lauroyl isethionate. RITA has expanded its offerings of sulfate-free surfactants and entered new markets, becoming a trusted partner for development of finished personal care products. Changes in lifestyle, growing inclination toward personal grooming, and increasing use of natural products are expected to have a positive impact on the market during the forecast period.
