Great risings, since I started my natural journey back in 2005 I have used and made natural products.
Once I saw a difference in my skin hair complexion I was not looking back, my whole family were introduced to it and that is all they use too. They have a proper moan if i'm not getting their butter to them on time.
So why natural?, we are freeing our selves from harmful chemicals that your everyday products on the market have in them. Chemicals like Sodium Hydroxide also know as Lye or caustic soda. this stuff is super strong and can be found in Hair Relaxers and your beauty cosmetics like hair removal creams.
Sodium Hydroxide is corrosive and is at a PH 14 so produces heat, it will gnaw right through your skin/scalp hair, it permanently breaks down the disulfide bonds that gives hair it's shape, basically removes the curl pattern and straightens your hair, it cannot just go curly again you have to wait until you have new growth and then remove the damaged hair to get your curls back. Can you see why it's used as a hair remover also? it's so good at breaking down hair that it's also in Mr Muscle sink un-blocker.
Check the ingredients of your body washes, hair products etc to see for yourself.
Sodium Hydroxide is serious this one alone is a great reason to go and stay on the natural side. Next we have Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) a foaming agent found in most cleaning and cosmetic products and Sodium Laureth Sulphate (SLES) lets just say "the Sulphates" for short. These are different but closely related!! they are used as a emulsifier basically to keep the ingredients in a product together but they are also surfacants to help clean and create lather. Both of these chemicals are hazardous to the kin, laboratories purposely test them on skin to create harm so they can test them against products that can heal the skin.
Household names use these chemicals in their products. there are more I am going to list them so you can check them out for your self, here go's:
(PEG), Potasium Sorbate, Parabens, Phenoxyethanol, Dimethicone, Quaternium -15, Petrolatum, Parafinium, Formaldehyde, Coal tar and many more.
A lot of these chemicals have been found to cause cancer, lung problems, Liver failing, hair loss, skin irritation like Psoriasis, Dermatitis and again more. To avoid the harmful effects of the chemicals in the household named products its best to check the labels of the products you are buy for a start or alternatively go the opposite direction and Use NATURAL. In my next post I will high light the benefits of Natural products, in the mean time check out our range here it's a great place to start.
