Are Your Hair Care Products Free of Sulfates?

It’s really important to use skin and hair products that are as free from known toxins as possible. Our health is a gift and we need to make good choices to protect and nurture our health throughout our life. One ingredient you don’t want in your personal care products is sulfate.

Sulfate Free. We see it highlighted on shampoo bottles like it’s a big deal, but what does this really mean? Why is it important for us to use sulfate free shampoos and conditioners?  Here’s the short + sweet + simple answer.

Sulfate is an inexpensive chemical used by companies to provide cleaning power and bubbly lather in our shampoos (and some conditioners).

It cuts through grease and provides the bubbles that we love, so what’s the problem? The concern is that sulfates can cause skin irritations, worsen skin problems and can even be linked to hair loss! Sulfates are cheap and effective as a detergent, but our delicate scalp, hair, and hair follicles aren’t able to handle the harsh chemical- especially as we age.

The harsh sulfates may be causing you more harm than good.

OR… would you rather have a treatment product  to use every few days, made specifically for exfoliation, like a good home acid peel or sugar scrub, leaving  your twice daily skin care routine to be filled with nutrients and hydrating ingredients?Cute woman wash her  face with water  by thebeautynook
