    registered pesticide product--a flea and tick shampoo for cats and dogs.Sodium lauryl sulfate also is a widely used component of many nonpesticidal
    consumer products currently marketed in the United States,
    including shampoos and fruit juices.

    This inexpensive detergent is commonly used in cosmetic cleansers, hair shampoos, bath and shower gels, bubble baths, etc. - It is probably the most dangerous ingredient used in skin and hair-care products. In the cleaning industry SLS is used in garage floor cleaners, engine degreasers, car-wash soaps, etc. It is very corrosive and readily attacks greasy surfaces.

    473P Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) - 5 gallons $86.10


    Features:

    Sodium Laureth Sulfate is a liquid used in high foaming cleaners. The physical properties of this surfactant suggest many other applications such as shampoos, liquid detergents, foaming agents, heavy duty alkaline cleaners, emulsifiers, textile mill kier boiling bleach assistants, and neutral and alkaline scouring. Foam stability in the presence of soap is much improved over other anionics, therefore this product is recommended for cleaning products containing soap as an ingredient. This product is milder than the SLS.

    Maybe it should be called Honey-B-Mostly-Healthy or maybe Honey-B-Kinda-Healthy......

    My bees are healthy, happy and thriving just fine on mother natures pollen and nectar. Radical thinking,,,,,,,,, I know!

    Between the lecithin and the SLS the essential oil/oils should be emulsified.
    I made up a 5 gallon stock solution for future feedings.

    I sent you a PM.
    The SLS is used as an emulsifier in many products. Some of those products are called degreasers.

    sls=sodium laurel sulfate
    It is an ingredient is most toothpastes.
    I believe it responsible for chancres-those nasty painful lang lasting non-herpetic mouth sores.

    I do not use it any longer in my mouth and would not put it in a hive.
