Why Switch to Sulfate and Paraben Free Onion Hair Shampoo
Lately, there’s a hype for paraben and sulphate free cosmetic products especially shampoos and soaps. People are choosing parabens and sulphate free products over normal ones. Several researches have found these two substances to be evil as well. But before you judge it, let’s see what exactly it is.
Parabens are a form of preservatives which hinders the growth of bacteria and fungus and is thus used to enhance the shelf-life of the products. There are several kinds of parabens like butyl paraben, ethyl paraben, methyl paraben, propyl paraben and isobutyl paraben.
Sulphates are the surfactant which is the substance that gives the rich foam in shampoos. Sodium lauryl sulphate is the main substance responsible for the lather. It helps in major cleansing and removal of dirt and oil from the scalp.
Recent studies have shown that sulphates can cause irritation to the skin and scalp while parabens might cause certain types of skin allergies. Infact sulphates can be a major reason for your hair damage. It can induce hair fall and thinning of hair. Also, studies are being conducted as sulphates are said be carcinogenic.
On the other hand, parabens have been names as phytoestrogens. Parabens can attach to estrogen receptors and thus reducing the estrogen impact in the body. Increased level of estrogen can cause breast cancer. This might or might to be valid for one and all. But to be on the safer side it’s better to switch to paraben and sulphate free shampoo.
