Today I used HEMPZ Herbal Body Scrub to give my feet a good scrubbing. The scrub’s exfoliant is crushed hemp seed and works great. Still, this is a conventional body care product with a bunch of nasty chemical ingredients including TEA-Lauryl Sulfate.
TEA lauryl sulfate is a highly acidic synthetic emulsifier. Over 40% of hair care products containing TEA lauryl sulfate have been found to be contaminated with nitrosamines, which are potent carcinogens.

Today I bathed with Dr. Bronner’s peppermint-scented hemp bar soap and shampooed my hair with Nature’s Gate Hemp Shampoo.
The problem with Nature’s Gate is it includes some of the 10 synthetic cosmetic ingredients to avoid:
1. Diazolidinyl Urea — One of the most commonly used preservatives after the parabens. They are well established as a primary cause of contact dermatitis (American Academy of Dermatology). Does not have a good antifungal and must be combined with other preservatives. Releases formaldehyde at just over 10°. Toxic.
2. Methyl & Propyl Paraben — Used as inhibitors of microbial growth and to extend shelf life of products. Widely used even though they are known to be toxic. Have caused many allergic reactions and skin rashes. Methyl paraben combines benzoic acid with the methyl group of chemicals. Highly toxic.
7. Stearalkonium Chloride — A chemical used in hair conditioners and creams. Causes allergic reactions. Stearalkonium chloride was developed by the fabric industry as a fabric softener, and is a lot cheaper and easier to use in hair conditioning formulas than proteins or herbals, which do help hair health. Toxic.
Dr. Bronner’s is coming out with a conditioning rinse to use along with the soap as a shampoo. I’ve tried it and it’s awesome. It’s just not on the market yet. 6 years ago
