WildWash Products contain absolutely NO Parabens, Sulfates, Phosphates, Phthalates, Petrochemicals or PEGs. These chemicals, which can be found in many shampoos, can have devastating effects:
Parabens are preservatives, which stop chemical shampoos from going ‘off’. They can cause cancer as they mimic the hormone oestrogen and are turning up as evidence in breast tumours.
Phthalates are used as thickeners to make a product appear ‘more concentrated’ and can cause birth defects and…here’s one for the guys, reduced sperm count and immobility.
Petrochemicals are found in ALL Synthetic Fragrances and can leak into waste water systems causing hyperactivity in children…..and another for the guys, sperm damage.
Phosphates replace soap in a lot of ‘soap free’ products and will leak into our water bodies destroying aquatic life and polluting ponds, lakes and rivers.
Sulfates, such as Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, are used in most shampoos to create lather, bubbles and foam. It is a particularly nasty chemical that is absorbed through the skin and can cause cancer and cataracts.
PEG’s are used as thickeners and emollients and are irritating, allergenic and can be toxic if taken orally.
WildWash is completely 100% natural and will not cause any of these problems. Our Groomers tell us that they feel SAFE using WildWash.
