"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 toothpaste."
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 chemicals!
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 emptor!
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 mimicking activity.
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
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
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
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
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
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 irreversible.
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
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 nitrates!
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 hair
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 C19H30O2.
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
nutrition, their resting stages get longer while their growing phases
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.Directions:
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.
Wet hair. Gently massage a small amount
through the scalp area. Rinse with warm water. Repeat if desired.
