Chemical Free Shampoos in India

With the inception of a lot of natural brands coming up with chemical free products, why do we still need to stick with commercial chemical products and do harm to ourselves. It is high time that we all go natural with our ancient grandma’s recipes or pick up a product from trusted natural brands. I know its difficult to zero in on a brand that provides safe products but I believe there are a handful of brands that carefully look into our needs and prepare safe fruitful products. So let us see what are the Best Chemical Free Shampoos in India, listed in no particular order.

Before that, I would like to quickly mention here the common ingredients you need to avoid in your shampoos so that you can check for yourself before trying any shampoo. Because there are lot more Natural Shampoos in India which may suit your hair type. So here it goes,

  • Sulphates: A common surfacant, is often linked to skin irritation and toxicity to the kidney and respiratory system. Look for Sodium Lauryl Sulphate and Sodium Laureth Sulphate in your labels
  • Parabens: Very common in most herbal shampoos. These disrupt our delicate hormonal balance, can cause early puberty in children and is linked to birth defects and organ toxicity. Look for Methy, Propyl, Butyl and Ethyl Paraben.
  • Pthalates: These are plasticizers that enhance absorption, increase spreadability and stabilize fragrance. These are known to increases the likelihood cell mutation, disrupt hormonal receptors and higher risk of birth defects.
  • Formaldehyde: A common chemical preservative, skin irritant, high levels can cause hair loss and is know to be an animal carcinogen.
  • DEA,MEA,TEA: These are Foam Boosters, skin and eye irritants , can cause contact dermatitis. Easily absorbed into the skin, they can get accumulated in body organs and brain.
