SULFATES, SULFATES SULFATESSSSSSSS! What are the really? are they really evil? Is it safe for my hair or skin?
As a cosmetic chemist, it is often hard to hear blanket generalizations about ingredients that are often labeled as no-no ingredients. The rationale behind avoiding certain key ingredient words is a bit complicated and not as simple as “good” or “bad.” Actually, it is a lot more complicated. The miseducation of the naturalista has led to the ultimate fear of certain ingredients for what sometimes seem to be pretty irrational reasons from a scientific perspective. There is truth to a lot of what you hear, but a number of these generalizations are not 100% true; rather, some of these ingredients can do some good when intelligently formulated and used in moderation.
