doc COMPOSITION Shampoo is generally made by combining a surfactant. Glycol distearate is a wax. but that has been disproved. which may have either animal or vegetable origins. 4 . most often cocamidopropyl betaine in water to form a thick. glycol distearate. This is the ingredient that makes the product tear-free.73212576. e. chemically derived from stearic acid. which is used to adjust the viscosity. most often sodium lauryl sulfate and/or sodium laureth sulfate with a co-surfactant. Many shampoos also includesilicone to provide conditioning benefits. Other ingredients are generally included in shampoo formulations to maximize the following qualities:          Pleasing foam Easy rinsing Minimal skin/eye irritation Feels thick and/or creamy Pleasant fragrance Low toxicity Good biodegradability Slightly acidic (pH less than 7) No damage to hair Many shampoos are pearlescent. There was some concern over this particular ingredient circa 1998 about this chemical being a carcinogen. Other essential ingredients include salt (sodium chloride). Commonly used ingredients     Ammonium chloride Ammonium lauryl sulfate Glycol Sodium laureth sulfate is derived from coconut oils and is used to soften water and create a lather.   Sodium lauryl sulfate Sodium Lauroamphoacetate is naturally derived from coconut oils and is used as a cleanser and counter-irritant. viscous liquid. a preservative and fragrance.

Citric Acid is naturally derived from citrus fruits and is used as an antioxidant to preserve the oils in the product. Shampoo can often go into the mouth. It is a fairly weak acid which makes the adjustment easier.  Polysorbate 80 (abbreviated as PEG(80)) is a glycol used to emulsify (or disperse) oils in water (so the oils don’t float on top like Italian salad dressing). It also has a small amount of preservative action.g. providing moisture and fullness to the hair.doc Polysorbate 20 (abbreviated as PEG(20)) is a mild glycol based surfactant that is used to  solubilize fragrance oils and essential oils. so all individuals who are on gluten-free diets may prefer to find a gluten-free shampoo. meaning it causes liquid to spread across and penetrate the surface of a solid (i.Some find that wheat and/or gluten (the protein found in many grains including wheat) is the cause. Polyquaternium-10 has nothing to do with the chemical Quaternium-15. particularly if they are sensitive to this in food e. While it is a severe eye-irritant. particularly for children. Citric acid is used to adjust the pH down to approximately 5. the Sodium Lauroamphoacetate counteracts that property. zinc pyrithione and selenium sulfide which reduce loose dander by killing Malassezia furfur. These contain fungicides such as ketoconazole . Other reactions can include dandruff.  Di-PPG-2 myreth-10 adipate is a water-dispersible emollient that forms clear solutions with surfactant systems SPECIALIZED SHAMPOOS We have several shampoos specialized for various problems such as dandruff.e.

or the use of the products so formulated. use of surfactants which. dilution. are less irritating than those used in other shampoos. approximately 7. 4. The monoanionic sulfonated surfactants and viscosity-increasing or foam stabilizing alkanolamides seen so frequently in other shampoos are much less common in the better baby shampoos. use of nonionic surfactants of the form of polyethoxylated synthetic glycolipids and/or polyethoxylated synthetic monoglycerides. in case product comes in contact with eyes after running off the top of the head with minimal further dilution. The considerations in 3 and 4 frequently result in a much greater multiplicity of surfactants being used in individual baby shampoos than in other shampoos. which may be a higher pH than that of shampoos which are pH adjusted for skin or hair effects. adjusting pH to that of non-stress tears.73212576. 2. 3. and lower than that of shampoo made of soap.
