Have a Sulfate FREE Holiday!

November 12, 2014

Sulfates are a synthetic foaming agent found in anything that lathers. So soap, body wash, hair care, toothpaste and bubble bath are a few examples of products that may contain Sulfates. While Sulfates are harsh detergents that have been known to irritate the skin and the eyes, it’s the potential presence of a by-product called 1, 4 Dioxane that is of the most concern. And 1,4 Dioxane wouldn’t be listed on labels. 1, 4 Dioxane has been classified as a human carcinogen by the International Agency for Research on Cancer.

Learn more about 1,4 Dioxane here on the Campaign for Safe Cosmetics website and from David Suzuki. And watch for Sodium Laureth Sulfate and PEG compounds on labels.

Choose products that use natural foaming agents such as Coconut Oil and keep it a Sulfate FREE holiday season!
