Beyond Food: Unveiling the Uncharted Territory of Beauty and Personal Care Product Ingredients

More and more people are becoming more observant with the ingredients and nutrition facts of the food they purchase. But compared to diets, looking at the ingredients list of the beauty and personal care products is relatively less popular. This probably stems from a lack of awareness or interest, especially because when we think of ingredients, we often associate it to what we put into our bodies, rather than apply to our bodies. 

Don't let the Packaging Fool You

When you’re in the grocery or drug store, have you ever thought to stop and compare the ingredients of the shampoo, toothpaste, soap and lotions you use? Most of us haven’t, because compared to food, there aren’t groups of beauty and personal care products that are tagged as “bad”, whereas with food, we’ve been taught about junk food and how unhealthy they are since we were little. With food, we are somewhat given a choice. We are aware that there is bad food and good food, and the autonomy to choose is ours for the taking. However, with personal care and beauty products, it seems like all the options are “good”, so it’s easy to just choose the shampoo with the prettiest bottle, or the most fragrant tub of lotion. More often than not, all the goodness that you think you’re paying for goes to these attention-grabbing details, leaving you with just a pretty bottle and less effective products, or worse, products that can cause more harm than good. 

The ingredients you need to watch out for

If you ever decide on reading and comparing the ingredients of store-bought shampoos, you’ll find that there are some 15 common components. Most of these you’ll also find on the products in the household cleaning supplies aisle, maybe even the hardware. Among these ingredients are Ammonium Lauryl Sulfate or Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES), Parabens and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), these being the most common. Parabens are used to prolong the shelf-life of products, and have been linked to increased growth of breast cancer cells. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or SLS, can compromise follicles when left on the scalp. SLS can potentially cause irritation to your eyes, skin, mouth, and lungs, it can even clog pores and cause acne. SLES is basically what cleans our scalp. It rinses off the oils and dirt from our hair, but because it’s very strong, it carries the scalp’s natural oils and healthful components with it. 

More than being potentially toxic to human health, common shampoo ingredients are also detrimental to the environment. Sulfates like SLS and SLES are non-biodegradable. Sewer systems cannot clean and process these detergents, so these enter our seas and oceans where marine life can be disrupted. In the long-run the contamination of our waterways will affect both marine and human lives. 

Together, these harsh ingredients in our shampoos cause hair loss and thinning. They cause dry, brittle and frizzy hair. Isn’t it quite ironic how shampoos, which we purchase to help us get clean and healthy hair, cause the exact opposite? As illogical as it may sound, these are the options that we have. These commercial, mass-produced shampoos are packed with ingredients that cause undesirable hair. 

The hormone that controls hair growth

Apart from harmful ingredients, genetics and hormones also play a huge role in hair health. Dihydrotestosterone (DHT) is a sex hormone present in both men and women that determines the “male” characteristics in our bodies. Free-flowing DHT in our bloodstream links to the receptors in hair follicles and shrinks them, rendering the follicles less capable of sustaining a healthy head of hair. DHT shrinks hair follicles, as well as shortens the growth cycle of hair. This causes hair to grow out thinner and more brittle, and fall out faster. DHT can also make it take longer for your follicles to grow new hairs once old hairs fall out. The correct manipulation of DHT can delay and stop male pattern balding.

To sum it up, we must stop DHT from linking to the receptors that shrink hair follicles. Luckily, Koso Med has formulated a shampoo that does just that, without the harmful ingredients that add to the biological causes of hair loss. Koso Med’s Vegan Therapeutic Shampoo boasts an ingredient list of oils, juices and extracts derived from organic herbs and plants. These healthful ingredients are fermented, ensuring the natural extraction of the essential nutrients and proteins that go straight to your scalp and hair. The fermentation process cancels the need for preservatives like parabens and excludes the use of artificial ingredients and heat that kills a lot of the essential nutrients we want for our hair. 

This fermentation process is based on a hundreds-old process, developed to extract only the real and natural components from the organic herbs and plants. The special fermented herbal formula of Koso Med’s Vegan Therapeutic Shampoo ensures that all the extracted essential nutrients penetrate deep into the hair and scalp, instead of getting washed off like other shampoos, achieving overall health for hair and scalp. 

Make the right choice and switch to a shampoo that’s better for your hair. Eliminate harmful ingredients that add to the biological causes of hair loss to achieve a lustrous, full head of hair.
