Say NO to Toxic Chemicals in your Shampoo & Conditioner NATURALLY
Let’s talk Shampoo & Conditioner!
Have you noticed when you wash your hair you have that squeaky, almost too clean, tangled mess in between the shampoo and conditioner? It seriously squeaks in between your fingers!
Shampoo is the worst! Simply the worst thing you can ever put on your hair. The soap and detergent based shampoos so many of us are used to, not only ‘over clean’ your hair and scalp, they also strip away our much needed and natural protective oil barrier.
The Sulfate ingredients in regular shampoos actually cause your hair to swell, it becomes dry, weak and brittle (that’s the squeaky feeling). Your conditioner is simply a bandaid, a sad attempt to replace all that needed goodness stripped from your hair and scalp.
In between your regular washing your scalp spends all that time trying to produce enough oil to make up for the natural protection you’ve harshly washed away, that’s the vicious cycle of regular shampoos and conditioners and that’s what we’ve been working on breaking, for months and months!
What’s NOT in Ecoistic Sanctify is even more important than what IS.
Sanctify is free of: cruelty, detergent, soap, parabens, gmo, palm, silicons, synthetic perfumes, and the very worst of the worst which is in almost every shampoo on the market Sodium Laureth Sulfate.
Even the most well known haircare products that sprout organic, natural, botanical ingredients are not willing to remove these ingredients – I mean, how can they without losing the other 99% of their product range which all contain these toxic chemicals.
Everything in Sanctify is certified organic and there are absolutely no FILLERS – there is no need to ‘pad out’ nature, what you get with Sanctify is exactly what’s it says on the bottle.
A Low Down of some of the toxic culprits in your standard Shampoos :
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/Sodium Laureth Sulfate – is a surfactant found in most commercial cleaning products. The sodium and ammonium laureate sulfates are considered to be carcinogenic, also causing rashes, liver damage, eye and skin irritation and on your hair causes split and fuzzy hair. Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate aids the penetration of other ingredients through the skin and when you read the remainder of the list, you won’t be wanting that! ☹
Synthetic Fragrances - can clog the lymphatic system and cause endocrine disruption.
Cocamidopropyl Betaine – is a foaming agent that has been associated with skin and eye irritation and allergic contact dermatitis.
Triclosan - accumulates in fat cells and keeps our system in a state of toxicity. It can cause irritation of the skin, eyes and lungs, and endocrine disruption and organ system toxicity.
Polysorbates - are often found in conditioners. It leaves a residue on the skin and scalp, disrupts the skin’s natural pH and destroys the natural protective barrier of our skin and scalp.
Polyethylene Glycol - contains dangerous dioxin levels, often found as a by-product of the ethoxylation process in manufacturing.
Potassium Sorbate - is used as a preservative in hair-care products, which causes skin and organ system toxicity.
Dimethicone - is a silicone oil that forms a plastic like barrier on the outside of the skin and traps bacteria, sebum and impurities with it. It is also an skin and eye irritant.
Behentrimonium Chloride - is a type of ammonium salt used as a preservative and surfactant. It is a toxic compound which causes irritation to skin, eyes and can cause inflammation.
Cocamidopropyl Betaine - can cause an allergic reaction after repeated use.
Phenoxyethanol - is another preservative used in cosmetics and hair care products. It can cause organ system toxicity, and is an irritant to the skin, eyes and lungs along with causing contact dermatitis.
The Planet & her people
As with all of our formulations we do our upmost to keep the planet and her people healthy. Ideally, we'd package in glass as usual, but this is a shower product, so your safety comes first.
So, Sanctify is packaged in a refillable 250ml PET recyclable pump bottle – but I want you to keep it and refill it.
An economical refill option means you only need to refill your bottle with one of our discounted refill pouches. (though the current pouch outer is recyclable the inner is not :( ... so we are thankful to The Better Packaging Co to be working with us on a fully compostable stand up pouch which we’ll be testing in the very near future and placing into production as soon as possible.
With Sanctify those currently washing their hair daily, will no longer need to, you’ll be able to go to day 4 or 5 before feeling the need to cleanse again, and the formulation is completely biodegradable so you’re not adding to the waterways pollution problem to have your beautiful hair and healthy scalp.
With the bottles not going to landfill, the lack of nasty toxic chemicals going into our waterways and the water conservation combined, we are indeed making headway.
Finally, the Organic all Plant based ingredients:
Pure Aloe Vera Gel, Hempseed oil, Apple Cider Vinegar, Marshmallow Root, Camellia oil, Rosehip oil, Argan oil, Olive Squalane, Hyaluronic Acid, Vege Glycerin, Hyaluronic Acid, Essential oils of : Peppermint, Lavender, Rosemary, Marjoram, Cedarwood & Gardenia.
I SO want you to try this formulation, it’s beyond my favourite thus far, and we can really make a difference to our personal Health as well as the Planets all while having a beautiful, healthy, nourished head of hair and scalp.
