A video that circulated on social media recently showed how the Sri Lanka Standards Institution (SLSI) had approved the detergent 'Sodium Dodecyl Benzene Sulfonate' (SDBS) which is harmful to the human body.

In the video, the Director General of the SLSI, Dr. Siddhika Senaratne is seen influencing the Director of Marketing and Promotion to state how ophthalmologists and dermatologists in the country have assured that the detergent 'SDBS' found in bathing bars is not harmful to the body.

However, the Cosmetics Manufacturers Association of Sri Lanka (CIMAS) notes that it is not suitable to use SDBS in bathing bars.

We asked Prof. Nimal Punyasiri, Chair of Biochemistry at the Institute of Biochemistry, Molecular Biology and Biotechnology at the University of Colombo and the former President of the Cosmetics Manufacturers Association of Sri Lanka regarding the use of SDBS in bathing bars.
