We all need to be more careful what it is we choose to rub on our scalps. It seems like every shampoo today on the market today contains a cocktail of ingredients to make the stuff smell so nice and lather so much…but sometime you got to wonder if this cocktail of chemicals is giving the illusion that we are cleaning our hair?
The addition of sulfate into shampoo has become a phenomenon today! Basically, “sodium laureth/lauryl sulphate” is responsible for making your shampoo “foam” ..that’s it, cleaning your hair is not done by foam at all.
Unfortunately sulfate is very bad for your health and too much of it, just is NOT a good thing. This can be problematic considering that it is in 99% of shampoos and bath soaps. However, there are many “sulfate-free” shampoos on the market, it’s just a matter of knowing which one doesn’t contain “sulfate”.
Below you will find a table of all the top sulfate-free shampoo’s Eco-Savy recommends. You can either wait until you go to the store to buy them, or order them right HERE from amazon.
Remember, sodium lauryl sulfate is very irritating to the eyes and skin, and may contain the carcinogen dioxane (produced during manufacturing).
What ingredients replace the “sulfate”?
Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate. This ingredient is derived from coconut and palm oils and is completely 100% safe for our skin. This plant derived ingredient effectively helps to remove oil, dirt and bacteria, without drying or irritating even the most sensitive skin. Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate is also a hydrophilic, this means it is attracted to water which enables it to dissolve more readily in water, thus providing superior rinse ability!
