Triethanolamine (TEA)

Often  used in  cosmetics  to  adjust  pH.  TEA cause allergic reactions, including  eye problems, dry  hair   and   skin,   and   can   be   toxic  if absorbed into the  body over  a long  period of time.

Synthetic Perfumes

The term “perfume” on the label   of a conventional product is very misleading: behind   this simple word hide 200 chemical products that are unabashedly unlisted. Some problems cause by these chemical products are: headaches, dizziness, hyper- pigmentation, violent cough,   vomiting and skin irritation.

Stearalkonium Chloride

A chemical used in conditioners, to detangle hair and in skin creams. It cause allergic reactions. The chloride of Stearalkonium was developed by the textile industry as a softening agent. It is much   cheaper and easier to include in hair conditioners than plant proteins or extracts, which are healthier for the hair. Very toxic.

 

Sodium Lauryl Sulphate SLS - Sodium Laureth Sulphate Sles

Detergent used   as a moisturizer in floor cleaning products, found in engines and in Agent Orange (which served to kill vegetation and profoundly harmed human and animal life during and long after the Vietnam War.) SLS and SLES are used in laboratories as skin irritants in order to test soothing products. However, their low coast makes them present in the majority of shampoos and cosmetic foaming products. Several studies have underlined the harmful effects of their use:   urinary infections, kidney and bladder infections, fertility problems, irritation to the eyes, skin and scalp, allergic reactions, lesions of the scalp and hair loss. Certain studies have asserted that SLS and SLES are carcinogenic.
