HLCC® Scripts Gentle Shampoo has been formulated without DEA and SLS. Our non-irritating shampoo is great for both men and women of all ethnicities.
98% of shampoos contain DEA/MEA and/or Sodium or Aluminum Laureth Sulfate (SLS) derivatives. These chemicals were designed as engine degreasers. If their sole purpose is to strip oil away from an engine, what do you think it’s doing to your hair?
Our goal was to provide a pure gentle product, that was superior to most high-end Anti-Aging shampoos, thus adding the appearance of shine and luster to the hair. Aboloshing the use of harsh, damaging chemical additives. Our blend of mild, non-irritating cleansing agents with water soluble polymers is so gentle, it can be used daily. The unique formula removes scalp residue and build-up, complementing your hair and scalp health.
HLCC® Scripts products are DEA and SLS FREE
DEA is used as a wetting agent in shampoos, lotions and cosmetics and is widely used because of the rich lather and consistency it provides. While not harmful on its own, DEA can react with other ingredients in the cosmetic, creating a potent carcinogen called nitrosodiethanolamine (NDEA). NDEA is absorbed through the skin and has been linked with stomach, esophagus, liver and bladder cancers.
SLS is used to break down the surface tension in water and is also found in soaps, detergents, creams, and cleansers. SLS is known to cause skin inflammation and may mimic estrogens, cause hair loss and damage teeth. It is a mutagen and a potential carcinogen. SLS can be stored in the liver, heart, lungs and brain. It can also damage the eyes.
Clinical studies have also shown that DEA and SLS reflect away laser light and lessen the effects of laser light therapy.
