I will look at DermNet, thanks for this suggestion, Merry. It will be interesting to read what they have to say, especially if it is a source trusted by health professionals. It will be an opportunity to learn something useful.

You should read the DermNet info - the site is a reliable source of skincare info, and is used by healthcare professionals.

If DermNet says that there's a problem with parabens, then there's a problem. ;)

Thanks a lot, Catsholiday.

I looked at Lush's paraben and SLS info, but not everyone agrees with what they have to say.

Parabens

Lush says: Scare-mongering ‘studies’ into their potentially negative effects have now been widely debunked.

DermNet mentions the link between contact dermatitis and parabens (also a weak oestrogenic effect).

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

Lush says: We have recently begun to replace sodium lauryl sulphate with a milder surfactant, sodium coco-sulphate. This new material is kinder to the scalp, but still cleans the hair effectively.

LUSH SAYS:

'With new agar based glitters and other biodegradable options now coming onto the market we are happy to announce that Lush will be able to eliminate the last plastic glitter in our products in the immediate future, without any loss of the fun and decoration that our customers have come to love and expect from us. The result will be a cleaner people and cleaner oceans.'
