What is SLES, and should it be in your pet’s shampoo?

Sodium Lauryl Ether Sulfate, or SLES, is the ingredient that makes shampoo lather (you know, like you see in the TV adverts?) For us humans, a good lather certainly makes us ‘feel’ like our hair is getting a good clean, right? But did you know, SLES is found in many cleaning products because it acts as a degreaser? In shampoo it strips your hair of the essential oils it needs to stay healthy, severely drying it in the process. SLES is also a known skin irritant and a proven carcinogen. Dogs aren’t exempt from its nasty properties, which is why you won’t find it in our shampoos!
