  • Needle Form
This solid, dry (needle) form of SLS can be simply added to bath bombs, soaps or dry bath salt mixes to create bubbles and foam when immersed in warm water and agitated.

Please note this is not a powder, but is similar in appearance to sugar strands which is a safer form compared to SLS powder known to release large quantities of dust. Also the noodle form is not hydroscopic meaning it does not readily absorb moisture as the powder form would. 
Our SLS powder is provided freshly sealed in a resealable food grade ziplock bags.
