Organic Shampoo is the sustainable and healthy alternative to chemical-laden, toxic commercial hair care products. If you’re looking for a safe way to take care of your hair, we have several natural shampoos to fit your hair type and hair care needs.
What’s wrong with regular shampoos?
Commercial shampoos are typically filled with chemicals like sulfates and parabens. These chemicals have been shown to be harmful to humans in a number of ways.
Sulfates, mostly used under the name sodium lauryl sulfate, is what produces the suds in soaps, shampoos, bubble baths and even toothpaste. This product can cause skin and eye irritation, strips the skin of its natural oils (therefore causing the skin to produce even more oil to compensate) and can even be carcinogenic, thanks to the byproduct 1,4-dioxane. This product can also be called sodium laureth sulfate and other variations. Look for words finishing in “eth”.
Parabens are a preservative used to increase cosmetics’ shelf life because of their anti-bacterial and anti-fungal properties. They are also used in fragrances, but since perfumes are considered trade secrets, you’ll never see it on the ingredient list. Parabens mimic oestrogen and can disrupt the endocrine system. When absorbed through the skin, it enters the bloodstream directly.
These are two examples among many; visit the Skin Deep database for more information about the dozens of potentially toxic chemicals you can unknowingly put on your skin every day.
