Dr Bronner's soap and Tom's Toothpaste among other options. I've used Dr B's for many years, and frankly don't worry about SLS in our Crest ProHealth toothpaste as it's way down the ingredient list and we spit and rinse with water and mouthwash - so the amount we might ingest seems trivial. There are other exposures I'd worry about long before SLS in toothpaste or dish soap, but to each his/her own
. I am sure I have some biases others would find silly.
There are several governing/reporting agencies, I am most familiar with IARC. If you look at the full lists of carcinogens, you may be horrified. "Probably" and "possibly" often just mean no one can prove anything either way. In my career I dealt with a chemical that was on the possible list even though there were dozens of studies going back 50 years of all types that confirmed the chemical was not a carcinogen. A few halfway credible studies that bring the chemical into question cancels out many more that seem to prove otherwise. It doesn't take much to wind up stuck in the middle/gray area.
