"Why is it such a big deal that LifeSource's Shampoos, Conditioners, Soaps,
and Lotions are all Sulfate-Free? We have studied sulfates and read this
type of frightening report below as well as reports that defend the safety
of sulfates, but in good faith, and with our being a company that works for
God, we will not put the foaming agents known as Sodium Lauryl / Laureth
Sulfates in any of our products! Or ANY Sulfates for that matter. My own
family uses these products, how could I add these possible deadly
ingredients to save a few dollars? ”
Bruce Brightman – Founder
What is Wrong with Sulfates?
The AJT report states that "Other studies have indicated that Sodium Lauryl
Sulfate enters and maintains residual levels in the heart, the liver, the
lungs and the brain from skin contact. This poses a question of it being a
serious potential health threat to its use in shampoos, cleansers, and
Both Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) and its close relative Sodium Lauryl
Sulfate (SLS) are commonly used in many soaps, shampoos, detergents,
toothpastes and other products that we expect to "foam up". Both chemicals
are very effective foaming agents, chemically known as surfactants.
Unfortunately, both sodium laureth sulfate and its cousin are also very
dangerous, highly irritating chemicals. Far from giving "healthy shining
hair" and "beautiful skin", soaps and shampoos containing sodium laureth
sulfate can lead to direct damage to the hair follicle, skin damage,
permanent eye damage in children and even liver toxicity.
Although sodium laureth sulfate is somewhat less irritating than SLS, it
cannot be metabolized by the liver and its effects are therefore much
longer-lasting. This not only means it stays in the body tissues for
longer, but much more precious energy is used getting rid of it. A report
published in the Journal of The American College of Toxicology in 1983
showed that concentrations of SLS as low as 0.5% could cause irritation and
concentrations of 10-30% caused skin corrosion and severe irritation.
National Institutes of Health "Household Products Directory" of chemical
ingredients lists over 80 products that contain SLS and SLES. Some soaps
have concentrations of up to 30%, which the ACT report called "highly
irritating and dangerous".
Shampoos are among the most frequently reported products to the FDA.
Reports include eye irritation, scalp irritation, tangled hair, swelling of
the hands, face and arms and split and fuzzy hair. This is highly
characteristic of sodium laureth sulfate and almost definitely directly
related to its use.
SLS is used routinely in clinical studies. This may suggest a level of
comfort, however, the way in which it is used is disturbing. Despite being
the number one active ingredient in virtually all soaps, shampoos and
cleansers, the sole purpose of using SLS in clinical studies is to cause
skin irritation that can then be used to identify the properties of other
Amazing isn't it? For years, we have been applying known irritants to our
skin on a daily basis. To quote the ACT report "The abbreviated symbol for
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is used around the world in clinical studies as a
skin irritant. SLS is the universal standard, by which a measured
percentage is evaluated to promote a given level of irritation and
reaction. By this SLS standard level of irritation, it is then possible to
evaluate the healing or modifying characteristics of any ingredient or
formula used on the SLS irritated skin."
Most worryingly, irritation has been shown to occur at concentrations of
0.5%, which is 1/60th the concentration found in some hand soaps. Caveat
In the last 100 years or so, many new health problems have come to light.
These include PMS / PMT, the so-called "menopausal symptoms" which never
used to exist, and more recently a massive drop in male fertility which
threatens our continued existence in many western countries. SLS is most
likely a major contributor to all of these problems due to its oestrogen
Oestrogen is a hormone found quite normally in both men and women. Like all
other hormones, its circulating levels are rigidly controlled by the glands
of the body due to the potent effect of its presence on virtually all
cells. Not only does SLS irritate the skin, it is also absorbed through the
skin (high levels of skin penetration may occur at even low concentration).
Once in the body, the SLS molecule attaches to oestrogen receptors,
mimicking the effects of the hormone in various body systems.
The result is hormonal chaos. The body can no longer control its own
oestrogen levels (or at least, what it sees as it's own oestrogen levels -
it can't tell the difference between endogenous oestrogen and SLS) and
therefore lose control of many normal endocrines (hormonal) functions.
In men, whose oestrogen levels are normally extremely low, this massive
increase causes breast enlargement, reduction of male hormone levels and a
massive drop in both sperm count and sperm motility (the ability of the
sperm to fertilize an ovum). Gender confusion may also be related to SLS
levels, either in the male himself or in his mother during pregnancy.
In women, the reproductive system, which is totally controlled by oestrogen
and progesterone, goes haywire. Rapidly shifting oestrogen levels and their
effect on progesterone levels mean that the body is totally confused,
leading to menstrual problems, menopausal symptoms, and potentially
infertility. Because this subject is so important, we have devoted a whole
section of this site to women’s health.
Eye Irritation/eye deformities in children
Have you ever got shampoo in your eyes? Yes, so have I - not pleasant is
it? However, the potential effects of SLS on the eye is much more worrying.
In animal studies, 10% SLS caused acute corneal damage. However, it is not
just direct eye contact that is the problem. According to the American
College of Toxicology, "tests show permanent eye damage in young animals
from skin contact in non-eye areas".
In other words, because SLS is absorbed through the skin, it can cause
PERMANENT eye damage WITHOUT ever directly coming into contact with your
eyes. As a result, you would expect that children’s products would be
SLS-free. Unfortunately not, most children’s shampoos contain just as much
SLS as those for adults.
Thankfully, alternatives DO exist, though you would be hard-pressed to find
them in your local chemist or supermarket.
Our cells are made from protein. The development of those cells is strictly
regulated by the reproductive processes that are continually at work
removing damaged and old cells and replacing them with healthy new ones.
Virtually every cell in the body is replaced at least every 7 years.
SLS exerts its effects on proteins by forming a chemical bridge between the
fat-soluble and water-soluble parts of the protein molecule. This disrupts
the hydrophobic forces needed to maintain the protein structure and the
molecule collapses, rendering it useless. This effect is usually
The result of this is two-fold. Firstly, existing proteins are damaged,
leading to an increase in the amount of healing required by the body.
Secondly, new proteins can be damaged and cells disrupted while they are
under construction. It is exactly this type of activity that can lead to
the early stages of skin cancer.
In the skin, this process can be so severe, that skin layers may separate
and inflame due to its (SLS's) protein denaturing properties.
Quite apart from its potential to cause pre-cancerous conditions by
denaturing proteins, the oestrogen mimicking effects of SLS also offers
massive potential to cause cancer. It is known that many cancers, not least
breast, and ovarian cancer are directly related to oestrogen levels, in
fact, some cancer cells actually secrete their own oestrogen, which
contributes to the growth of the tumor.
Clearly, by disrupting normal oestrogen levels AND by causing similar
effects at a cellular level as endogenous oestrogen, SLS exhibits the
MASSIVE potential to both cause and worsen cancerous states. The incidence
of breast cancer has increased several-fold in the last 50 years, both in
women and in men. Currently, according to the American Cancer Society, men
account for approximately 1% of all breast cancer cases. This subject is
discussed in more detail in our women’s health section.
There is also a third way by which SLS can potentially cause cancer.
Carcinogenic nitrates can form in the manufacturing of Sodium Lauryl
Sulfate or by its inter-reaction with other nitrogen-bearing ingredients
within a formulation utilizing this ingredient (many shampoos contain
nitrate compounds). A single shampooing can produce more cancer-causing
nitrates in the body than eating a pound of bacon, which is VERY high in
Whether it is by these means or not, SLS is a known mutagen - it is capable
of damaging the genetic material found every cell in your body. As
mutagenicity has been strongly linked to cancer, this is a major concern.
, which stands for Dihydrotestosterone (5α-Dihydrotestosterone), is a male
sex hormone, an androgen. 5α-reductase, an enzyme, synthesizes DHT in the
adrenal glands, hair follicles, testes and prostate. Male and female adults
can lose hair as a consequence of changes in the metabolism of androgen in
the body - men more commonly than women. DHT plays a major role in
Male pattern baldness
, also known as androgenic alopecia or androgenetic alopecia, is caused by the hair follicle's
sensitivity to DHT. The follicles miniaturize (shrink), resulting
in a shorter lifespan and the abnormal production of hair.
The molecular formula for DHT is C19H30O 2.
The most important part of the hair follicle is the dermal papilla (papilla
of hair), which is responsible for the growth of hair. The dermal papilla
cells divide and differentiate to form new hair follicles. The papilla is
in direct contact with the skin's blood capillaries, from which it gets its
essential nutrients for proper hair follicle growth. The dermal papilla has
a large number of androgen receptors (more in males than females).
When DHT gets to the dermal papilla, it undermines the absorption of vital
nutrients required for healthy hair follicles. Hair follicles have resting
and growing phases - without proper shampoo -
, their resting stages get longer while their growing phases get shorter.
What is Miniaturization?
Miniaturization in this text refers to the progressive shrinking the hair
follicle. Hair grows for shorter periods, becomes lighter, finer and
smaller, until it eventually reaches the vellus stage. Vellus hair is
light-colored, short, thin and very fine hair - it is barely noticeable and
grows on most of the human body, except for on the lips, palms of the
hands, soles of the feet, etc. Vellus hair is sometimes referred to as peach fuzz or bum fluff.
Miniaturization occurs because of DHT.
Experts say that 95% of cases of male pattern baldness occur because
of the effects of DHT on the hair follicles. How much DHT people produce
depends almost entirely on their genetic make-up - the more that is
produced, the greater and more widespread miniaturization is, resulting in
greater hair loss.
