Our Shampoo products are SLS and Paraben Free and are made from all natural ingredients . Hair Care products are full of damaging chemicals especially sodium larel sulfate and soudium laureth sulphate ( laureth is the foamy equivalent , commonly found in foam baths ).
you may ask yourself why should I care , well quite simply Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is not a good product to be putting on your skin . As with many other items that are declared "safe" this is not always the case!!.
Below is some information from the book "Beauty to Die For"
Studies on SLS have shown that:" (Judi Vance, Beauty To Die For, Promotion Publishing, 1998)
1."Shampoos with SLS could retard healing and keep children's eyes from developing properly. Children under six years old are especially vulnerable to improper eye development. (Summary of Report of Research to Prevent Blindness, Inc. conference."
2."Sodium Lauryl Sulphate can cause cataracts in adults and delays the healing of wounds in the surface of the cornea."
3."Sodium Lauryl Sulphate has a low molecular weight and so is easily absorbed by the body. It builds up in the heart, liver and brain and can cause major problems in these areas."
4."Sodium Lauryl Sulphate causes skin to flake and to separate and causes roughness on the skin."
5."Sodium Lauryl Sulphate causes dysfunction of the biological systems of the skin."
6."Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is such a caustic cleanser that it actually corrodes the hair follicle and impairs the ability to grow hair."
7."Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is routinely used in clinical studies deliberately to irritate the skin so that the effects of other substances can be tested." (Study cited by the Wall St Journal, 1st November 1998)
Their is also alot of good information about SLS in Philip Days excellent book "Health Wars"
"Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) is a very harsh detergent found in almost all shampoos and more than a few toothpastes. Pick up a cross section of these products next time you visit the supermarket and you will find Sodium Lauryl Sulphate SLS or Sodium Lauryth Sulphate (SLES) in pride of place under the ingredients label.
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate started its career as an industrial degreasant and garage floor cleaner. When applied to human skin it has the effect of stripping off the oil layer and then irritating and eroding the skin, leaving it rough and pitted.
