We know that many people are concerned about sulfates in cosmetic products, and we’re happy to report that we do not formulate our products with sulfates. And in case you’re curious about the Sodium Laurylglucosides Hydroxypropylsulfonate you see listed in our shampoo ingredients, it’s not a sulfate; rather, it's a sulfonate. Sulfonated Alkyl Polyglucosides (SAPGs) have evolved over the past decade and have become an efficacious primary surfactant (the stuff that suds) alternative to sulfates.
In fact, sulfonates tend to be among the most gentle surfactants. We prefer sulfonates because of their mildness to the skin and eyes, their foaming properties, and the renewability and environmentally-friendly nature of the materials.
