Sulfates are a synthetic foaming agent found in anything that lathers. So soap, body wash, hair care, toothpaste and bubble bath are a few examples of products that may contain Sulfates. While Sulfates are harsh detergents that have been known to irritate the skin and the eyes, it’s the potential presence of a by-product called 1, 4 Dioxane that is of the most concern. And 1,4 Dioxane wouldn’t be listed on labels. 1, 4 Dioxane has been classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.
