@Abdullah SLES due to the presence of an ether group, might be the more sensitive of that group. I remember some degree of hydrolisis might occur below a pH of 4 (at higher pH, some hydrolisis can also occur, it’s so little and slow that it becomes irrelevant). That’s why acid cleansers don’t use SLES.
