What is SLS?

Sodium Lauryl (Laureth) Sulfate (SLS) is currently the primary foaming agent of the Western civilization. It is usually found in combination with cocamidopropyl betaine (cocabetaine) and diethanolalamine (DEA), which itself has fallen under scrutiny from health regulators of late. SLS is found in shampoos, bath gels, car washes, dish detergents, bar "soaps", laundry detergents, etc. It is a wetting and dispersing agent, emulsifier, degreaser and foamer. It also increases skin permeability roughly 100 times and is used in lotions to increase absorption of micronutrients through the skin.
At Om Veda Naturals, we do not use SLS or any other detergent based foaming agents in any of our products. We are in business to provide Non-toxic Alternatives for Life.

What is Triclosan?

Triclosan is the antibacterial agent commonly found in antibacterial soaps, lotions, acne products, cosmetics and other personal care products and is dangerous! It is classified as a pesticide by the EPA and as a drug by the FDA. The EPA considers it a major risk to human health and to the environment:
"Chemically triclosan is almost the same as some of the most toxic chemicals on earth: dioxins, PCB's, and Agent Orange. Its manufacturing process may produce dioxin, a powerful hormone-disrupting chemical with toxic effects in the parts per trillion one drop in 300 Olympic-sized swimming pools!)."

What about those cool-looking see-thru glycerin soaps with inserts?

All "glycerin soaps" are made using the "melt & pour" process - like making your own candles. You buy solid, bulk glycerin (often animal-based) that has added detergents to make lather and drying alcohol and/or propylene glycol to make it clear. You melt the glycerin and add fragrance, color or other additives. They may look cool and have some natural ingredients added, but they are synthetic-based and they aren't real soap!

Why do you use essential oils?

Essential oils are natural organic substances, which are produced in various glands and sacs within aromatic plants. They can occur in flowers, leaves, stems, seeds, barks, roots, fruits, herbs, grasses, needles, twigs, and resins. They are most often produced by steam distillation - a single drop of essential oil can be equal to one ounce of the plant. Most essential oils are antibacterial, plus they smell GREAT!
