Are you aware of the preservatives in your shampoo?
Do you know what your shampoo and conditioner contains?
Preservatives are common in all types of beauty products and make them retain their properties longer. That's good in a way. The increased durability means that you do not have to throw away sos much of the contents of the jar, bottle or tube. But some preservatives are contoversial. Some types of so-called parabenes have been suspected of having endocrine disrupting effects. Therefore, parabens are currently prohibited in Nordic Swan Ecolabelled beauty products. But the issue is complicated, so the assessment can change in the future. Another preservative that is not allowed in Nordic Swan Ecolabelled beauty products is MI (Methylisothiazolinone). It’s allergenic, but also very toxic to aquatic animals.
