Sodium lauryl sulfate, also known as sodium dodecyl sulfate, SLS, or sodium laurilsulfate, is a common ingredient in toothpaste and as a surfactant it is basically a type of ‘soap.’ You might be wondering why your toothpaste needs ‘soap’ in it, but it is there to help thicken your toothpaste as well as help it foam up and dissolve dental plaque while you are brushing. It is also cheap and makes formulating various types of toothpastes easy for manufacturers.
However, despite the positives for toothpaste manufacturing, sodium lauryl sulfate has been known to have some significant downsides that make it a good idea to look for a SLS-free toothpaste to brush with instead .
