Is the Shampoo You are Using Really All Natural?

The big marketing push these days is “sulphate- and paraben-free” products. But, this is not the end of the line when it comes to potential toxins in body care products.  To maintain good health and avoid adding to your Body Toxic Load, we suggest that you take a look at the ingredients list on your regular shampoo. Do you have any idea what most of the ingredients are? Do you know what they do? It is worth investing time in looking after your health, because if you don’t, who will?

The Challenge & Risks

There are toxins in almost all mainstream shampoo products, even if they are sulphate- and paraben-free.

Some of the ingredients to look out for and avoid include:

  • Preservatives.
  • Propylene Glycol, which is a humectant and co-emulsifier.
  • Diethanolamine (DEA), which is a surfactant to make products creamy and foaming.
  • Fragrance (parfum) which mostly are synthetic. These can contain any number from thousands of chemicals that have never been tested for safe use in humans.

If you Google the ingredients listed on your shampoo, there are conflicting opinions on toxicity and safety. Now while the experts are debating, do you want to take the risk with your long-term health?

The Solution

Australian scientist and Indochine Natural co-founder and Chief Formulator, Dr. Mike Thair, has taken this challenge head on.  After years of research, he has developed an all-natural hair shampoo using only whole plant oils and organic honey. It’s that simple, there is nothing else in our Indochine Natural shampoo apart from saponified whole plant oils. and here are the ingredients you will find in any of our Indochine Natural shampoo products:

Water (Aqua), Potassium Cocoate (coconut oil), Potassium Canolate (canola oil), Potassium Ricate (rice bran oil), Mel (organic honey), plus various plant-derived 100% pure essential oils for fragrance.

You may be thinking now, how can this be, how can shampoo be made using only whole plant oils? It’s simple, and Dr. Mike has perfected and refined a simple process called saponification that converts plant oils into gently foaming all-natural shampoo.

Isn’t it about time you changed to a safer alternative?


  1. I had never thought about whether or not my shampoo was all natural. However, now that you mention it, I do want completely natural shampoo! I will have to Google the ingredients and see what’s going on.

    • Hi Silas,

      Thanks for your comment. Most people do not give the ingredients list on their shampoo a second thought, and simply accept what the brand says, which in many cases is pure greenwashing. Yes, you should investigate ingredients closely, and based on your findings make your own decision.

      Kind regards,
