Avoid: Sodium Laureth (aka 1,4-Dioxane) Although it's classified as a human and animal carcinogen by the EPA, 1,4-Dioxine, a byproduct of processing harsh chemicals with ethylene oxide to make them less harsh, is prevalent on beauty shelves. Got sodium lauryl sulfate? Ethyoxylate it and you get sodium laureth -- the "eth" indicates the process. Unfortunately you also get 1,4-Dioxine, most commonly found in things that bubble.
