and sodium laureth sulfate.

do you avoid these chemicals in your cosmetics or not?

i have very sensitive skin so i tend to avoid these when they're the second or third ingredient.
i don't know why i feel so dry

From wikipedia
Biocide

SDS represent a potentially effective topical microbicide, which can also inhibit and possibly prevent infection by various enveloped and non-enveloped viruses such as the Herpes simplex viruses, HIV, and the Semliki Forest Virus.[12][13]
Shark repellent

Evidence suggests that surfactants such as sodium lauryl sulfate can act as a shark repellent at concentrations on the order of 100 parts per million. However, this does not meet the desired "cloud" deterrence level of 0.1 parts per million.[14][15]
Pesticide

Some species of flies, ants, and moths are attracted to sodium lauryl sulfate, even in small amounts, and are then killed by it. It is the main active ingredient in most store-bought fruit fly killers.[citation needed] Fruit flies are more commonly attracted to it, however, if the chemical is in a sweet-smelling soap or detergent.


Idk what it is but it has some useful sounding side effects.

shark repellant

it's an incredibly strong, cheap soap that's in lots of stuff but many people find it to be too strong and leaves their skin/hair dry and irritated.

Nah I don't put shark repellant on my face unless I'm doing some shady business with shark minorities
My God, it's full of stars!

Uh huh. And you're chemically illiterate.

Find a quality, all-natural body wash and shampoo that smells as nice as Dove for men, and I'll switch. Til then, I'll deal with it.
This ends now, eat the goddamn beans!

they're both in pretty much everything lol.

unless you want us to go to some middle class friendly organic store and only buy products made from pure kiwi fruit or something

cause I have a huge one near me and they overcharge for cosmetics. rather the sulfates and their non-apparent effects.


edit: and most of those 'sensitive' products that are legit lacking in sulfates are super weak and don't feel like they clean you at all.

I don't consciously avoid it because I don't think my skin has a problem with it, but I just checked and there's none in the face soap I'm using now. I just use whatever works for me. And I need SDS in my shampoo/conditioner because I use silicone-based products after.

Honestly the only thing I've ever had a problem with is coconut oil. Everyone keeps going on about it as if it's some magical thing they just discovered and how it cures everything so I decided to try it as a makeup remover. BAD IDEA, I've had to put hydrocortisone on my left eyelid 3x a day for the past 4 months just because of that.

I probably sound like a coconut oil hipster or something but this whole thing is so damn annoying because my mom used to force me to put it in my hair every night before bed...that part actually works, but it was $1.50 back then and now it's hard to find anything that isn't organic and under $10.
