~ The Sulfate free claim, is a term used commonly by the natural beauty industry, specifically referring to the two harsh cleansers found in traditional shampoos, known as SLS (Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and SLES (Sodium Laureth Sulfate). These strong cleansers can strip oils causing irritation to the skin and scalp. No A'kin products contain SLS or SLES and therefore are referred to as sulfate free.
Not all sulfates are bad. Behenyltrimonium Methosulfate (also called BTMS) is one of the good sulfates. It is an oily wax and an extremely mild conditioning ingredient, to moisturise your hair and scalp vs. stripping natural oils away. It is also more degradable than many other conditioning ingredients.
All products from [A'kin] are made free from animal ingredients or animal by-products, are certified vegan and accredited by Choose Cruelty Free - an independent non-profit organisation, which seeks to promote a cruelty free lifestyle.
