[Common Name : Lauryl Alcohol Ethoxylate]

An emulsifier and surfactant (wetting agent). Decreases the ingredients to penetrate and remove the dirt. L.A.E. is the most readily biodegradable surfactant available and breaks down into harmless carbon dioxide and water.

It exceeds the OECD standards for biodegradability. It is mild to the skin and rinses off easily leaving no film. L.A.E. has no toxic effects on aquatic life from mosquito larvae to guppies, snails, etc.
