Five Harmful Chemicals Onestà Will Never Use (From their website)
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate/Sodium Laureth Sulfate: These cheap, harsh detergents, used in shampoos for their foam-building properties, are also used in car washes, as garage floor cleaners, and as engine degreasers. They are often derived from petroleum and can cause eye irritation, scalp irritation, and tangled hair.
Parabens (methyl, propyl, butyl, and ethyl): While these preservatives inhibit microbial growth and extend product shelf life, they are also estrogenic and disruptive of normal hormone function. Exposure to these parabens has been linked to breast cancer.
Propylene Glycol (PG) or Butylene Glycol (BG):
Derived from petroleum, these ingredients penetrate the skin and can weaken protein and cellular structure. Commonly used to carry formula extracts, PG is strong enough to remove barnacles from boats and is an active ingredient in industrial antifreeze.
Synthetic Colors and Dyes:
Used to make cosmetics “pretty,” synthetic colors and dyes derive from coal tar and contain heavy metal salts that deposit toxins onto the skin, causing irritation. Animal studies have shown almost all synthetic colors and dyes to be carcinogenic. These are labeled FD&C or D&C followed by a color and a number. Example: FD&C Red No. 6 or D&C Green No. 6.
Diethanolamine (DEA) and Triethanolamine (TEA):
These ingredients are synthetic emulsifiers and/or foaming agents. They are highly acidic and can cause allergic reactions, eye irritation, and dryness of hair and skin. DEA and TEA are ammonia compounds, which are potent carcinogens.
Scary stuff, huh?
Onesta is not only a company of integrity, but their products are truly amazing. I have had the privilege of putting several of Onesta’s hair care products to the test, and I love them! My daughters and I agree that Onesta has some of the best shampoos, conditioners and styling products we have ever experienced.
Some of my favorite Onesta products are:
This shampoo contains certified organic extracts of Honey, Sage, and White Willow.
This shampoo leaves my hair very soft and shiny, and healthy feeling. I love the scent, too. It smells very fresh and light.
This conditioner contains certified organic extracts of Horsetail, Dulse, and Sea Kelp. These extracts, rich in nutrients from the sea, work together to strengthen and soften hair, leaving it silky and more resilient without weighing the hair down. Perfect for daily use, without build-up.
Create “Finish” Hair Spray
This amazing hair spray provides volume, flexibility, and long-lasting hold, and is humidity-resistant. This hairspray can is made with 30% post consumer steel and is 100% recyclable. And, Onesta uses a 100% natural fragrance.
Did you know?
Most aerosols on the market today use synthetic fragrances, which can be comprised of up to 200 individual chemicals to make one perfume, including trace amounts of formaldehyde. One of the biggest health concerns with aerosols is inhaling the small molecules of synthetic fragrance.
