Why Sensitive Skin Needs Fragrance & Sulfate Free Hair & Body Care
Fragrance-free hair and body care are on the top of dermatologist list of recommended products for sensitive skin. There is good reason why that fresh, spring, flowery scent of fragrance can be so bad for you. Fragrance contains many hidden chemicals that can cause skin reactions. They may smell good, but they are not good for you. Of course, fragrance is added to just about every skin care, cosmetics, hair and body care. According to the non-profit consumer database Environmental Working Group (EWG) fragrance has been linked to many skin conditions, including allergies, dermatitis, and respiratory problems. It's always best to choose fragrance-free hair and body care products.
Sulfates, specifically in the form of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), is another ingredient to avoid. Most shampoo, toothpaste, soaps, and face and body wash contain SLS as a detergent and foaming property. This harsh detergent tends to dry the skin and lead to a host of other health issues. In toothpaste, it's been reported to exacerbate or cause canker soaps. In your shampoo and soaps it can bring about contact dermatitis. Therefore, SLS free products are crucial for your health.
