say no to froth

(SLS) Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and (SLES) Sodium Laureth Sulfate are used to make shampoos, toothpastes and body washes 'sudd up' but they also irritate and dry out our hair and skin, and once in the blood stream they mimic our hormones. Look for 'SLS and SLES free' labels. Baby moisturisers and shampoos are full of this stuff, Gaia is an Australian company that makes chemical free baby products available in chemists and supermarkets.

  1. Dear Abby,
    There is a really great book a read a few years ago now called :"The Feminization of Nature: Our Future at Risk" by Deborah Cadbury. I am certain you have read it as all the things you mention ring a bell to me. I have really enjoyed reading your blog so far, its great to be informed about this stuff and to find solutions on a local level. Keep up the research! We all need to know.
