In amounts of 2% to 7%, it can cause allergic or sensitizing reactions in lots of customers of soaps having SLS.

· ethoxylation generates a by-product known as 1,4 dioxane, which is known carcinogen whose track record is more dangerous than SLS.
· there are still many cases with laureth sulfates of skin irritation and eczema.
