Having worked previously for companies that both make and use anionic surfactants, sodium dodecyl sulfate (aka sodium lauryl sulfate) is too high a foamer for laundry detergents, which use the more effective (and lower foaming) sodium dodecyl benzene sulfonate.

All the major consumer brand companies (e. g., P&G) will have SDSs for their products.

All the best to everyone for Christmas ??? and the New Year!
