5 Harmful Chemicals in Shampoo & Conditioners, You Should Avoid

How would you choose which shampoo & conditioner to buy for yourself? Does a brand's advertisement help you settle on the choice, is it the reviews you read on the website, or do you refer the ingredients list? Indeed, it is a smart thought to instill the propensity for perusing labels of hair care products. It is more secure than blindly belief on Brand or Celebrity advertisements.

Yet, for what reason would we say we are saying this? Since, most commercial shampoos and conditioners are made with an enormous unsafe Chemicals! Furthermore, no, their harmfulness levels are not simply restricted to hair health. It implies they can cause life-threatening dangers!

To recognize such harmful ingredients in shampoos and conditioners, we discussed with dermatologists and hair care specialists at Soultree. Here is the list of 5 toxic chemicals presents in shampoos & Conditioners.

5 Toxic Ingredients to Avoid in Shampoos

1 SLS/SLES or Sodium Laureth Sulfate

We all love lather, don’t we? It gives us the reassurance that the shampoo is doing its job and deep cleansing your scalp. However, the foam comes from a chemical agent called Sodium Laureth Sulfate which eventually strips away natural oils from your scalp and makes the hair rough and brittle. It is an anionic detergent and surfactant found in many personal care products.

2 Paraben

A commonly-used preservative found in personal care products such as soaps and shampoos, parabens is known to cause skin allergies including dermatitis because they penetrate deep into the skin.



3 Artificial  Fragrance

Artificial fragrance is really not good for anyone because it releases huge amounts of toxic volatile compounds that are linked with endocrine disruption. These compounds are known to clog your lymphatic system and induce toxicity in the internal organs.

4 Phenoxyethanol

Another commonly used preservative, Phenoxyethanol is largely used in our cosmetics and hair care products but is an irritant to the eyes, skin, and lungs. It can also affect our nervous system and induce dermatitis.


5 Phthalates

This refers to a family of industrial chemicals used as solvents in several personal care products. However, it can cause damage to our internal organs including the reproductive system.


What Should We Do?

To reduce the Health Risk, We should use the Organic & Natural Hair care Product. We must use Organic Shampoos & Organic Hair Conditioners, that usually made of organic & natural ingredients.
