    @ its other way, SLES is milder than SLS
    Ethoxylation causes following:

    • Reduce irritancy(milder to skin)
    • Decreases salt viscosity response(need more salt to thicken SLES than SLS)
    • Reduces foaming

    Yes, the opposite is true. SLES is theoretically more mild than SLS. Although you can make a mild formula with either.

    But it does demonstrate that not everything you read on the Internet is true.
