The personal care industry is growing every year. In the United States alone, it is an estimated $50-billion industry.
From eye-makeup to shampoo and conditioners companies are using cheap, synthetic, and harmful chemicals in their products and are exploiting the American public.
One of the most prominent and harmful chemicals found in 90% of our shampoo products is Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES).
According to the Journal of the American College of Toxicology SLS and SLES can damage the immune system, cause separation of skin layers, and inflame your skin leaving it dry, rashy and irritated.
Big brands are sneaky, they use their profit earned from you and me to pay their laboratories millions of dollars to restructure chemicals. Together, they have come up with numerous versions and names for SLS and SLES to trick consumers.
Below is a small fraction of the list of different names companies use to replace Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and Sodium Laureth Sulfate:
