Beware! Your shampoo could be a bomb in a bottle!

Nowadays we use so many different cosmetics on our bodies. But shockingly we never research which of these ingredients are harmful and blindly trust that manufacturers won’t include bad ingredients in their products. But why is it important for us to know the ingredients? Well, it is sad to say that some of these products that we use every day can lead to neurotoxicity, lung toxicity, and some are even carcinogenic (known to cause cancer).

Some of the ingredients you can’t even pronounce so we tend to slip up on checking the back of the bottle. So I am here to warn you against some of the most common potentially harmful ingredients to avoid. These include:

  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES)
  • Sodium Chloride
  • Parabens
  • Polyetheylene Glycols (PEG)
  • Diethanolamine (DEA)
  • Triethanolamine (TEA)
  • Formaldehyde and Formaldehyde releasing agents
  • Alcohol
  • Synthetic Fragrances
  • Synthetic Colors
  • Dimethicone
  • Cocamidopropyl Betaine
  • Triclosan
  • Retinyl Palmitate

These are 15 of the most harmful ingredients that you may find in your cosmetics. So what to do???

Opt for natural or vegan products.

The Inebrya retail ranges offer so much versatility so that if your health is important to you, you will find a product within the range that will cater to your needs.
