There’s been a lot of buzz going around chemical free hair care, SLS-free shampoos and paraben-free cosmetics in the skin hygiene community lately. When it comes to shampoos, everyone wants the best for their mane- which is currently a sulphate and paraben free shampoo. And if you’ve landed here, you might already know what the infamous SLS/ SLES and parabens mean and how they impact our health and the environment’s too.
Let us give you a quick recap anyway: Sulphates, also known as SLS or SLES, are chemicals that are added to cleansing products like soaps, face washes and shampoos to create lather. These work by reducing the surface tension, hence removing grime and dirt. Now these are both good qualities right?
Not really, sulphates and other chemicals are too harsh and strip our hair and scalp of essential natural oils that are needed to keep our hair healthy and shiny. This leads to dry and brittle hair that are prone to breakage. Moreover, sulphates tend to get accumulated around the hair follicles, hence leading to hair fall. Apart from that, this accumulation of the product also causes skin irritation and in rare cases, cancer.
A sulphate free shampoo helps prevent those problems, and cleans your hair gently, leaving them beautiful and healthy.Sulfates can be identified on your shampoo bottle label as: Sodium laureth sulphate (SLES, Sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS) and Ammonium laureth sulphate
Coming to parabens, they have been around a very long time. Parabens were used as chemical preservatives to increase the shelf-life of cosmetic products by inhibiting microbial growth. But it has been found that these chemicals mimic the properties of the female hormone estrogen. Using products containing parabens may mess up your hormonal balance. They have been reported to be present in breast cancer tissue also.
Parabens appear in easy-to-identify names such as Methylparaben, Ethylparaben, Propylparaben and Butylparaben. Paraben-free shampoo prevents the regular introduction of parabens into the bloodstream via skin absorption processes.Even beyond the grievous personal harm, these substances are really bad for the environment too. They are very well known to hinder the growth of vegetation on land, and mess with the flora and fauna of water bodies.All in all, if you don’t use eco-friendly sulfate and paraben free shampoos, you’re hurting yourself, and hurting the environment both.
