when it comes to perioral dermatitis are sodium myreth sulfate and sodium laurel sulfoacetate the same as SLS?


when it comes to perioral dermatitis are sodium myreth sulfate and sodium laurel sulfoacetate the same as SLS?
I've read that sodium laurel sulphate (SLS) irritates perioral dermatitis, so i went out and bought all new natural products that dont have sls, but got home and realized that there are other things like sodium myreth sulfate and sodium laurel sulfoacetate in them. Are these just a different name for SLS? Please help

I know it's a long time since this was posted but it may help people in the future; except for a difference of two carbons in the hydrophonic "tail", sodium myreth sulfate and SLS behave in pretty much the same way - I would say avoid it.

However sodium laurel sulfoacetate is different in a few ways:

However:

so as you can see, there is mixed info out there.  As a fellow perioral dermatitis sufferer though, I would be reluctant to try anything containing these ingredients.
