How to Modify Private Label Hair Products

Extracts and Oils

Essential Infusions

We’ve talked about the sulfates and parabens. We have even talked about what better choices are being made to replace those frowned upon ingredients. What’s next? Well, even though we have taken out the sulfates and parabens in your hair care products, there is still something that SLI Beauty has forgotten to mention. We also include, Essential Infusions into your private label hair care. It is taking private label hair care one step further.

Beneficial Oils • Tinctures

What are Essential Infusions you ask. Well it is your opportunity to add extra tinctures, specialty oils, proteins and essential oils to your formulations. This is not only taking customizable hair care one step further, but it is also creating added benefits to your line. Making each of your products more marketable and beneficial to your clients.

Functional Ingredients

For example, if you have a Hydrating Shampoo and Conditioner and want to improve the moisturizing benefits you might want to add some Jojoba Oil, which absorbs quickly and helps the natural balance of the hair’s sebum. It also is extremely moisturizing and improves the hair’s elasticity. To give it support, you may want to also add some Aloe Vera. Aloe Vera has been shown to improve hydration and encourage cell rejuvenation.

Ladies & Gentlemen…Sulfates

Sulfates. A word that has created quite the buzz in the hair care industry. The word has become quite heavy for an ingredient that creates those big bubbles everyone loves to gush about. Somewhere in all those big bubbles is the truth and it’s time to wash them away and speak honestly about why they are there and what they do.

SLS, SLES, ALS, what do these all mean? To put it in layman’s terms, Surfactants. These surfactants are put into your shampoos to create the bubbles that we are all told ” clean our hair”. What they don’t tell you about sulfates is the fact that you  are drying out your hair, fading that $200.00 color service you just had done at the salon and some studies show that sulfates are damaging to the immune system. The list doesn’t stop there. Other studies show that sulfates can be damaging to the hair follicle and thus effecting hair growth. Here’s something to think about, SLS is not only in your luxurious shampoo, but your husband just washed your garage floor with it. The same sulfates found in your shampoo are the same sulfates that are used in car degreasers. Those sulfates dissolve the grease on car engines the same way it dissolves the natural oils in your hair. Now you have something to think about.

SLS knows no mercy, they will take whatever you’ve got, including the natural oils that your hair needs to remain healthy. You might now be asking yourself, ” Well if we know all this about sulfates, then why are they being used in my shampoos?”  The answer is simple. Cheap, cheap , cheap.  So what could be recommended is to start buying your shampoos by the gallon, that way you can wash your hair and your car at the same time.

While this seems like a way to cut some costs and time, there is a better way to deal with this dilemma.  There are sulfate free shampoos. SLI Beauty shampoos are completely sulfate free. We don’t think you should have to wash your hair with the same ingredients the car is washed with.

There are many alternative surfactants. One of the more popular being Cocamidopropyl Betaine, this surfactant is derived from coconut oil. Another popular surfactant is Decyl Glucoside which is harvested from corn, potato and wheat. There is a gentler way to wash.

Now is the time to re-educate. While you are not going to have the same big bubbles that you get with sulfates, you can rest assured that you are safe and looking after the health of your hair, as well as, your overall health.

When using a sulfate free shampoo it is recommended to start with a dime sized amount of shampoo and do a light pre-wash followed by a regular shampoo. This will help with creating a lather, which until the mass population understands that the amount of bubbles isn’t what is making their hair clean it might help them feel at ease.

SLI Beauty has a well rounded selection of shampoos that will meet the needs of all hair types. Now SLI Beauty is taking a step further with our Essential Infusions. Contact SLI Beauty to find out more about our shampoos and how you can customize an entire private label line.
