Hair Care with Kangen Water®

Take Care of Your Hair

When was the last time you looked at the long list of ingredients on the label of your favorite shampoo? While research is still being done to test just how much our skin absorbs, we should take caution when choosing what to apply on our skin and scalp. A recent study by the Environmental Working Group (EWG) found the presence of 16 chemicals common in cosmetics, body, and hair care products in the blood and urine samples of twenty teenage girls1. Why use anything but green and organic products on your external body when you know your skin may absorb the ingredients?

The chemicals and additives in shampoos and soaps don't just affect you; they are also harmful to the environment. The Canadian federal government has labeled two of these silicon-based chemicals (called D4 and D5) as toxic. These two toxins, found prevalently in shampoos, soaps, paints, and plastics, not only pose a risk to human health, but also affect wildlife when they are seeped into the environment in large quantities2. The American EWG has declared that 1 out of every 7 cosmetic and hair care products contain D4 or D53. While the Canadian government harshly regulates these dangerous chemicals, the US government has yet to label them as toxic, or regulate them in any way.

So, while your shower may be a great place to escape, it can be difficult to relax when you realize how many chemicals you are pouring over your body and releasing into the environment from the soap to the shampoo.
