Why choose Sulphate–Free?
Sulphate-Free shampoos and conditioners are products containing no Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS).
Sodium Lauryl Sulphate is an anionic surfactant that is used in industrial products including engine degreasers and floor cleaners as well as in household products such as toothpastes, shampoos, bath gels and shaving foam. It is used for its thickening effect and its ability to create lots of lather.
In the same way as it dissolves the grease on car engines, Sodium Lauryl Suphate also dissolves the natural oils on the skin, causing dryness and damage to the hair follicles- leading to hair breakage. It also causes eye irritation and the skin to flake.
All this because sulphates are cheap to produce and they create lots of lather and bubbles (which we have become accustomed too!).
