What are replacing the sulfates?

With all the talk about sulfates and how bad they are, it seems that we have been too distracted to take the time to ask, what is taking the place of the sulfates in my shampoo? It is understandable. It takes a while to read through a shampoo label, trying to find the word sulfate to pop out. It is the where’s Waldo of the haircare industry.

Taking the time to understand what sulfates are and what they do is very important. It is equally important to understand what is replacing the sulfates in these now sulfate free shampoos.  Two words, Decyl Glucoside. This is plant derived non ionic surfactant is made from a reaction between a natural plant oil and a natural plant sugar.

Let’s take a closer look. Decyl Glucoside is a very mild surfactant that is good for all hair types and is mild enough for even the most sensitive skin. It is a compliment to Cocamidopropyl Betaine. Some benefits this ingredient can bring to a formulation are:

– Good foaming power

– Compatible with all surfactants

– Mild, but still has very effective cleaning

– Maintains balance without drying

– Does not contain any impurities

– Environmentally friendly

– Suitable for the most sensitive skin

Decyl Glucoside has a moisture binding property that allows for a smoothing effect. This natural ingredient is definitely becoming a front runner for surfactants.

SLI Beauty has selected to use this ingredient as one of its surfactants to replace the use of sulfates. To learn more or find out about other natural ingredients that SLI Beauty has chosen to use in its products, contact us;

SLI Beauty introduces Argan Oil Treatment

If you haven’t heard of Argan Oil yet, then listen up! It’s the latest rage, even though it has been used for its beneficial purposes for the past centuries. This Moroccan oil that is grown in Aoulouz  is where certified organic agriculture is grown has become a major player in the hair care and skin care scene.

The way in which the Argan oil is harvested rather interesting. The fruit is picked and the nut is then extracted from the fruit. The nut is  roasted, once the nut has cooled it is ground. Water is added to the ground powder which forms a type of paste. From this paste the Argan Oil is hand extracted.

If you are worried about the Argan trees and the harvesting of Argan oil commercially, try not to be, because as the demand for Argan oil goes up, the number of trees planted goes up.

The benefits of Argan oil on the hair include; restores incredible shine to hair, repairs split ends, strengthens hair, and some even say it helps speed up hair growth. The benefits of Argan Oil does not stop at the hair, it has amazing anti-aging properties and has even been said to help with minor skin irritations such as eczema and psoriasis.

A Take Care Hair Affair

In the salon industry there are so many different product lines that flood the market. Right now the industry is facing a major crisis in retail. Many of the top nation brands are showing up in super markets and drugstores.  The term ” Sold only in professional salons” is becoming more and more obsolete.

There is an answer to the call of salon owners and their salons. Private label. This is a solution that helps salons and their owners in more than one way. First and foremost, it is an exclusive line and will not turn up in super markets or drugstores. Private label also helps salon owners market their brand in an effective, but also creative way. It creates excitement again amongst the jaded salon owners.

Looking into private label can sometimes be overwhelming. The salon owner is now in charge of selecting a company they trust, selecting products for their line, fragrance, packaging, and the list goes on. Asking what is important to you and your salon is going to make answering these questions easier.

SLI Beauty creates organic/natural sulfate free, paraben free professional hair care products. Many of our clients not only stand behind what our products represent, but also like that we are completely confidential and do not disclose who our clients are. This keeps the traditional meaning of private label intact.

Products are created from the highest quality ingredients. Using essential oils and tinctures to enhance the benefits of the products separates SLI Beauty from our competition. Also, the fact that SLI is a completely customizable solution. You get to pick your packaging, fragrance, closures, design,etc.  SLI Beauty does not keep products sitting on our shelves. All of our clients orders are “made to order”. That way you know every products is made fresh.

Having a project manager assigned to your product line ensures that all of your needs are being met and questions are being answered. If that isn’t enough, our senior chemists are on hand to answer any questions or help you through any formulations, because we also offer research and development for our clients. If you have a product you love, send us a sample and we will reformulate it so that it becomes a part of your product line.

We also offer marketing solutions to help our clients market their lines to its fullest potential. Making sure that you are armed with all the necessary education and tools is how SLI Beauty manages the product lines it partners with you to create.

Shea Butter Treatment, A product with fabulous force

If you don’t know about the benefits of Shea butter already, you are about to find out.

Shea butter is a trans dermal oil, which means that it has the capability to penetrate past the first layer of the dermis into its underlying layers. This is a phenomenal way to keep moisture locked in and to get to the root of the problem.

When Shea butter is used on the skin, it can vastly improve dry skin, sunburns, eczema and other minor skin irritations.

The cheapest and easiest way to extract Shea butter is to use a chemical extraction method, which strips the Shea butter of its natural vitamins and the natural healing properties that come with using it topically. SLI Beauty has its raw Shea butter extracted in the most natural way possible. The process includes picking the Shea Nut from the Shea tree, from there it is cracked, grilled and then pounded to extract the butter from the nut. Once this is finished it is boiled for a number of hours until the Shea butter rises to the top where it is scooped into gourds and left to cool. This is where you get the rawest form of Shea Butter.

SLI Beauty believes in using the rawest form of Shea Butter to ensure that the products it goes into receive its maximum benefits. When creating a private label line you have an opportunity to experience this natural wonder. The product is called Shea Butter Treatment. This product contains the raw Shea Butter, not to mention other beneficial ingredients such as emu oil, which is in fact another trans-dermal oil. ( This oil is only used from the animals that are already harvested for the meat and instead of leaving the rest go to waste, is used for its many beneficial features.) Emu oil benefits include; regenerative hair growth and  increase hair’s cellular activity(up to three times it’s normal activity). Emu oil is also a very effective anti-fungal and antibacterial agent, which will help lift any residue on the hair and scalp. This oil also is a major moisturizing agent, making it an excellent ingredient to add to a product that needs extra conditioning. Vitamin E is also another ingredient in the Shea Butter Treatment, which helps with hair growth and helps to maintain moisture in the hair.

Another benefit of the Shea Butter Treatment aside from its deep penetrating conditioner is the fact that it also contains Sage as an ingredient. Sage has been selected as an ingredient for this treatment, because of its incredible scalp clarifying properties. It deep cleans the oils and impurities away from the scalp while improving conditions like psoriasis.

The Shea Butter Treatment has undergone testing over the past 6 years and has been found not only to improve minor scalp irritations, but to also help problematic thinning hair. With conditions such as thinning hair or pattern baldness, what often happens is a “cap” is formed over the scalp and this clogs the hair follicle preventing hair growth. The Shea Butter Treatment actually removes the “cap” , cleaning out the follicle, allowing for any trapped hairs to be released.

This is an excellent retail product for clients with scalp irritations and that may be experiencing thinning hair. This is also a great treatment product within the salon to offer its clientele. Simple warm Shea Butter Treatment in your palms, massage the treatment into the hair, place in cap and add heat for 10-15 minutes. This product is also great for sunburns or minor skin irritations. A dual product with amazing results.

This product can be a part of your private label line. Please contact SLI Beauty for more information regarding this product and its benefits.
