  • Product Details & Information

    Disodium laureth sulfosuccinate — or DLS — is a chemical additive commonly found in cosmetics and personal care products. Acme-Hardesty disodium laureth sulfosuccinate is unique in that, unlike petroleum-based products, it is derived entirely from palm oil. This makes it an ideal choice for any manufacturer marketing their product to the growing segment of eco-conscious consumers.
