Colonial SLES-2 is a sodium salt of lauryl alcohol ethoxy sulfate-containing an average of 2 moles of ethylene oxide. It is a light liquid of medium viscosity, sparkling clarity, and mild odor. Colonial SLES-2 is biodegradable.
This product produces suds that are mild, gentle, and profuse. Shampoos and bubble baths, compounded from Colonial SLES-2 and alkanolamides, perform well under a range of conditions. The addition of organic salts produces remarkable increases in viscosity, making economical formulas possible. Colonial SLES-2 generates a slightly wetter foam than a one-mole ether sulfate.
This product is relatively unaffected by hard water and is useful in many cleansing applications.
