You are no stranger to reading product labels.
We can spot a bad ingredient a mile away. We know the good ones too. But what’s the difference between the good ingredients and the best?
When it comes to our haircare products, we know Biotin, Collagen and Keratin promote hair strength. We know argan oil and castor oil promotes softness, silkiness and shine.
Most of us have heard the stories of Benzene-containing products being pulled from store shelves. Sodium Benzoate, the active ingredient that converts into Benzene when exposed to Vitamin C, is still used to prolong shelf life in most mass marketed personal products.
Common to sunscreens, dry shampoos and unfortunately, hair loss treatments, Sodium Benzoate still graces the store shelves because the Food and Drug Administration (FDA) assures us that it is safe in small quantities.
Another ingredient to look out for is Sodium metabisulfite. Sodium metabisulfite is an inorganic chemical compound also used to prolong shelf life. It is commonly found in hair loss treatments and commonly found on the Hazardous Substance List.
The good news is these two notorious ingredients are easy to identify and easy to avoid.
Ashwaganda. Ashwaganda is classified as “Good +” because it is adaptogenic and it may promote hair regrowth.
Ashwaganda is the active ingredient in Nutrafol. Nutrafol is effective.
However Nutrafol’s other active ingredient is Sodium metabisulfite, a preservative which as we have established is not so good.
Ashwaganda is good PLUS, but it’s not the best because it is commonly used in conjunction with potentially harmful preservatives to prolong its shelf life.
So what’s the difference between the good ingredients and the best?
Good ingredients may promote hair growth. The best ingredients have proven it.
It’s the adaptogenic ingredients (without the harmful preservatives) that make ROOT WISE REPAIR® hair loss treatment stand out as the best.
