Why Use Organic Shampoo?
The best single reason to use Organic Shampoo is that organic ingredients consistently outperform their synthetic counterparts while leaving the hair’s structural integrity, natural moisturizers, and healthy shine in tact. Quite simply put, Organic Shampoo simply works better.
But another good reason is that organic shampoo is simply safer according to Dr. Samuel Epstein, MD, chairman of the Cancer Prevention Coalition in Chicago and professor emeritus of environmental and occupational medicine at the University of Illinois School of Public Health says . “Mainstream industry products are highly dangerous,” Epstein says. “Consumers have got to be fully aware of the fact that mainstream industry products carry a wide range of ingredients that are carcinogenic or allergenic.”
“Consumers who regularly have their hair colored or chemically treated expose themselves to a much great risk” says Dr. Stephen Mazer, a 25 year veteran of the medical profession. Mazer explains that “consumers who regularly have their hair colored need to avoid non-organic shampoos with harsh detergents because they damage the scalp in such a way that allows the toxic chemicals associated with hair color pass through the scalp and enter the blood stream more easily.” Mazer, who recommends Organic Care Systems as the most natural, organic, and safest line of shampoos and conditioners he has researched, worries that licensed salon professionals are not adequately educated on the risks associated with using these harsh detergents when regularly coloring hair.
Both Dr. Mazer and Dr. Epstein caution against any shampoos or conditioners that contain “Any ingredient ending in ‘eth,’ like sodium laureth and steareth,” as they carry harsh and potentially harmful detergents. Ingredients such as parabens, ammonia, sulfurs, plastics, or any unnesseary additive fillers should also be avoided.
“Consumers who regularly get their hair colored and do not use organic shampoos are exposed to the greatest risk” says Dr. Stephen Mazer, who strongly recommends Organic Care Systems shampoos, conditioners, and treatments for all consumers who get their hair colored. “The harsh detergents in other shampoos can damage the scalp and allow the toxins contained in many permanent hair color to pass through the scalp more easily and absorbed directly into the bloodstream” continues Dr. Mazer.
When asked how serious the risk may be, Dr. Mazer explained that there are more pores and follicles on your scalp than the total number of pores and follicles on the rest of your body. While 60% of the ingredients from whatever product you put on your skin are absorbed into your bloodstream, that percentage is much higher when considering the scalp. It is critically important, especially for people who regularly have their hair chemically treated, to maintain the healthiest scalp possible. “I have never encountered a healthier range of shampoos, conditioners, or treatments as Organic Color Systems and I strongly recommend that people who get their hair colored strongly consider these products.”
Organic Care Systems is the unique combination and collection of natural-based shampoos, highly effective design treatments (treatments) and great hair care (conditioner).
All products are designed to preserve the natural structure of the hair where necessary to repair and prevent a decline in color intensity. Organic Care System is specially tuned to the colors of Organic Color Systems to get every hair color as long and as brilliant as possible.
Therefore, four product families have been developed with certified organic extracts and natural ingredients – each for a specific hair type: Status Quo for normal, Aqua Boost for dry, Power Boost for fine and Soothe Plus for sensitive hair and for the sensitive scalp.
