Shopping for silicone-free shampoo?

Shopping for silicone-free shampoo?

Are you looking for a silicone-free shampoo? We’re here to help you to find the best shampoo for hair that is full of natural vitality.

We create silicone-free shampoos because silicone is not permitted for use by organic certification bodies.

Our shampoos are made with plant proteins and extracts to support naturally healthy looking, shiny hair.

 

What are silicones?

Silicones are polymers with a chemical structure based on chains of alternate silicon and oxygen atoms.

Silicones can be used in cosmetic products such as shampoo and conditioner. When used in hair care, they form a layer around the hair shaft and help to give your hair added shine and smoothness.

There are many different types of silicones and, if you are reviewing your hair care and want to find out if your shampoo is silicone-free, it can be hard to tell from the ingredients list if you don’t know what you are looking for.

If there’s anything that ends in “-cone”, that is highly likely to be a type of silicone, e.g. dimethicone.

 

Why are some shampoos silicone-free?

Shampoos primarily cleanse the hair but there’s also a lot of ingredients that can be added to shampoos to help the hair feel strong, shiny and soft.

Silicones are not currently permitted by any of our certificating organic bodies and, to secure a certified organic status for our hair care, our shampoos must be silicone-free.

We make our natural shampoos and conditioners with organic essential oils and extracts that penetrate the hair shaft and help to nourish and hydrate your hair. This makes our shampoo a particularly good hair care choice for those with curly, dry or damaged hair that needs a bit of extra TLC.

Green People Quinoa Shampoo and Conditioner

 

Essential oils and extracts used in our shampoos include:

  • Quinoa Protein
  • Lavender Oil
  • Sweet Orange Oil
  • Lemon Peel Oil
  • Green Tea Leaf Extract

For those sensitive to essential oils, we also offer a Scent Free Shampoo that is made without any essential oils and suitable for those prone to an irritated scalp.
