5 Shampoos Without Fragrance
The demand for fragrance-free shampoos is steadily increasing. We have already reported on Body Lotions and Shower Gels without perfume. In this article, we present shampoos withou fragance, which are an important part of the personal hair care, especially for people suffering from allergies.
What are fragrances in shampoos?
Since we mainly present all natural cosmetic products on this website, the products listed on our website do not contain any synthetic fragrances.
However, in many natural and organic shampoos, essential oils are mostly used as fragrances. Even being gently to the environment these herbal fragrances are not always well tolerated by people with sensitive scalps.
Other fragrances can be grouped under the term “perfume” and this makes it difficult to even understand which substances are actually contained in the shampoo and which may cause irritation.
Therefore, it makes sense to consider shampoos that are completely fragrances free. Additionally, if the product is all natural or organic, the impact on the environment will also be less.
