There are eight million people living with a skin disease in the UK (British Skin Foundation, 2016). Dealing with sensitivities and skin problems is a daily reality for today’s hairdressers.
One of the questions we often get asked is what ingredients do our products contain? Are they vegan, do they contain gluten or sulphates? In today’s society individuals are more conscious than ever over what products they use and how the ingredients affect their skin, hair and general wellbeing. - Debbie Digby, founder of Passion4Hair, the UK distributor for Malibu C, Eufora and Sens.us
The most common skin condition is contact dermatitis (also known as contact eczema). Dermatitis is caused by an inflammation of the skin. Symptoms include redness, dryness, itching, swelling, cracking, blistering, flaking and bleeding. Known trigger ingredients include Paraphenylenediamine (PPD), sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), sodium laureth sulfate (SLES) triclosan and parabens.
Continuing, Debbie said,
At Passion4Hair we work with brands that promote the use of botanical ingredients, have incredibly high green credentials and are considerate to the clients’ health. We stock lines that are sulphate free, gluten free and paraben free among others; and thanks to Sens.us’ development and investment, there is now a range of hair colour which is PPD free.
For anyone who is sensitive to haircare products, we’d be very happy to discuss the options our partner salons stock and to put them in touch with their nearest salon and fully trained hair care specialist.
