Over 80 percent of all commercial shampoos in the market use Sodium Lauryl Sulfate(SLS) in their formula. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is the ingredient in shampoos that we recognize as cleansing agents. Sulfates act as emulsifiers that reduce the surface tension of liquids, which makes the liquid easier to mix with water and surfactants (to help clean and create lather). SLS is a potent de-greaser as it binds to the dirt and grease on both your hair and scalp and dissolves vital skin oils on the skin that result in dryness.
The American Academy of Dermatology (AAD) says people who have eczema, contact dermatitis, or sensitive skin should avoid Sodium Lauryl Sulfate(SLS). Any potential lathering effects from sulfate shampoos could irritate these types of skin conditions. You’ll also want to avoid other known irritants in shampoos such as synthetic fragrances, alcohol, and alpha-hydroxy acids like glycolic and lactic acids.
Lemon-scented Tea Tree Shampoo
for Oily Hair and Scalp
A balancing botanical blend specially formulated for oily hair and scalp. Delicate foam gently cleanses and removes impurities without stripping or irritation.
Additionally, sulfates are known to cause hair frizz. When sulfates make contact with your hair, they create a negative electrical charge, which can create frizz after you shampoo. You can minimize these risks by choosing Inna Organic Lemon-scented Tea Tree Shampoo or Cedarwood Shampoo. In Inna Organic, we use Trio of Natural Surfactants(Anionic surfactant, nonionic surfactant, zwitterionic surfactant)，which do not cause hair frizz and eye irritation, gently washes away styling product buildup and impurities without stripping hair or irritating the scalp.
And because Inna Organic strives for total transparency, we list the percentage of natural and organic ingredients right on our packaging. You’ll never have to wonder whether our products are safe for your family – they are and always will be.
