Sulphate free skincare has become very popular in recent years, and it is easy to see why.
While you might have been following the trend of avoiding sulphates in your skin and hair care regimes, do you really know why?
What are sulphates?
Sulphates are commonly represented as SLS on
These are common chemical foaming agents can be found in toothpaste, soaps, body cleansers, shampoo as well as household cleaning products like dishwashing liquid, laundry detergent and carpet cleaners.
Why should you avoid sulphates?
The biggest issue with sulfates is that they can cause varying levels of skin and eye irritation, which can worsen the longer the product is in contact with the skin. So, why do companies use them?
Sulphates are very good at foaming and creating lather, as well as stripping oil from your skin and hair. This includes all of the natural oils that nourish and protect our skin and hair. Stripping these oils leave our skin and hair dehydrated and brittle.
As sulphates can lead to dry and damaged skin, people who suffer from psoriasis or eczema should avoid using products containing sulphates as these can aggravate the symptoms.
In most scientific communities, sulphates are considered safe when used in concentrations of lower than 1% and for short periods of time. Yet many shampoos that contain sulphates typically include concentrations of around 15%, usually to cut costs!
