Sulfate, paraben free shampoo

I found this at Costco today. Anyone use it or recommend it? It is sulfate and paraben free but I did notice it did contain PEG.

  1. Sulfate Free and Paraben Free mean nothing; they'll just use other chemicals that are just as harmful. Like cocamidopropyl betaine (2004 "Skin Irritant of the Year" by the American Dermatalogical Society, also can be laced with carcinogenic nitrosamines) and other harmful preservatives like EDTA, which offgass formaldehyde. And don't get me started with PEGs---I'd rather have SLS than PEG any day. PEGs are contaminated with 1,4-dioxane, a known carcinogen. Yuck! :)

  2. Stephanie, I'm a big fan of your shampoo. Currently I'm just using baking soda. I know that 1,4-dioxane is on the dirty chemicals list I keep in my wallet ... guess I didn't realize that that was PEG too! Thanks for your post!
