Not sure: Not sure about all those ingredients in our shampoos, conditioners, soaps, and creams. I presume they all end up in our waters when we shower. The site, http://chemicaloftheday.Squarespace.Com/qa/2011/9/26/sodium-coco-sulfate.Html, has a well-written answer. If the answer is correct, it sounds like the 2 chemicals are similar and equally good or equally bad, depending on one's view.
