A Deep Dive into the Less Discussed Ingredients of Our Competitors
As a leader in the eco-friendly product space, Green Llama is dedicated to not only what we include in our products but also what we consciously exclude. Today, we’re shedding light on some of the potentially harmful ingredients commonly used in the industry, highlighting why they are not part of our formulations.
1. Synthetic Additives
Many health and wellness products contain synthetic additives like artificial colors, flavors, and preservatives. These additives can cause allergies and other long-term health issues. At Green Llama, we opt for natural alternatives, ensuring the safety and well-being of our customers.
1,4-Dioxane, a byproduct in the production of sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), is classified as a probable human carcinogen. It’s commonly found in products that create suds, like shampoos and soaps. We avoid this risk by choosing safer ingredients and processes in our product formulation.
This preservative, found in many beauty and personal care products, has been linked to skin allergies, irritations, and potential neurotoxicity. In our commitment to health, Green Llama uses safer, more natural preservatives to ensure product safety and integrity.
Used to extend shelf life in many products, parabens can disrupt hormone function, leading to increased risks of health issues like breast cancer and reproductive toxicity. We believe in using safer alternatives to preserve our products.
5. Synthetic Fragrances
These complex chemical mixtures can cause allergic reactions and endocrine disruption. At Green Llama, we use natural oils and extracts to provide authentic scents, avoiding synthetic fragrances' potential health risks.
6. Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
While SLS creates a desirable foaming effect in cleaning and personal care products, it can cause skin, eye, and lung irritation. We prioritize the use of gentler, more natural surfactants in our products.
