Your scapular health matters - gently does it!
The ingredients that you typically find even in some of the top branded shampoos and skin products today contain chemical compounds which can trigger allergic reactions and even asthma attacks.
You may not even know that you’re allergic to shampoos with scents and fragrances until you start to suffer from unexplained allergies.
A natural sensitive skin shampoo that is free from all the added parabens, perfume and colours are ideal for those suffering from scapular skin conditions. Not only that, but the right sensitive shampoo is also well suited to those who are looking for a high-performance hair care product that effectively cleanses, conditions and renews hair and scalp – without any of the unnecessary additives or fragrances which can cause irritation.
Why you should avoid shampoos with fragrances and other additives
According to a report released last year, nearly 20% of the general population is sensitive to at least one allergy. Furthermore, studies have revealed that fragrance in shampoos alone is one of the most common causes of allergic reaction breakouts.
The allergic reaction skin products with fragrances can eventually manifest include irritation, redness and breakouts. Even if your skin doesn’t show any visible signs of inflammation or irritation, there’s a lot going on beneath the surface.
The most common form of damage caused by shampoos with fragrances and additives to make them appear more “luxurious”, is the breakdown of the skin barrier and namely, collagen. The fragrance present in your shampoo causes collagen degradation which sets back the skin’s ability to fight off environmental damage or properly heal itself, for that matter.
Just because you can’t see or “feel” the damage doesn’t mean that problems are not cooking up.
Reasons to stop using a scented or fragranced shampoo today
Your scalp’s prolonged exposure to specific fragrances found in shampoos can have dire health consequences, especially in the long run. Unfortunately, a large percentage of the general population is not aware of the dangers fragranced shampoos pose to health.
Apart from the usual, everyday symptoms like redness, inflammation and skin irritation, cosmetics with fragrances contain synthetic chemicals which can lead to devastating health consequences such as birth abnormalities, infertility, neurotoxicity, hormone disruption, sinus and asthma attacks as well as other respiratory complications, and exacerbation of existing allergies.
