    And I think we ignore things like that to our detriment. Worrying about what goes on your head and not giving a hoot about what is in your lotion would be a good example.

    I think it sad the way people follow fads without questioning whether or not it is good for them. Aren't we all (I hope!) glad we weren't one of those people damaged by ephedra diet pills? I think it is really important to know what is going into and onto your body.

    What's the betting people try them without clarifying first and it all ends in build-up and tears?

    It's great that there's a high profile line without 'cones and sulphates though - if enough people see the advert and google "what are silicones and sulphates" there might be a revolution. Kinda. A hair-olution?

    There is a list of ingredients on their website - Skincare, cosmetics, haircare, ha****lor, hair styling and men's line : L'Oréal Paris

    The one I have linked to is the Intense Smoothing Conditioner, but you can see the other ones as well.

    Wait here is the ingredients as it says on their website - Intense smoothing conditioner:

    Aqua/Water/Eau, Cetearyl Alcohol, Helianthus Anuus Seed Oil/Sunflower Seed Oil, Behentrimonium Chloride, Glycerin, Cetyl Esters, Stearemidopropyl Dimethylamine, Parfum/Fragrance, Quaternium-87, Isopropyl Alcohol, Hydroxyethylcellulose, Candelilla Cera/Candelilla Wax/Cire de Candelilla, Propylene Glycol, Olea Europea Oil/Olive Fruit Oil, Caprylyl Glycol, Benzoic Acid Citric Acid, Argania Spinosa Oil/ Argania Spinosa Kernel Oil, Triethanolamine.

    This is beasically how it's written on the website. So is it really true that there aren't any silicones in it?

    The Intense Smoothing Shampoo:

    Aqua/Water/Eau, Cocamidopropyl Betaine, Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Disodium Laureth Sulfosuccinate, Sodium Lauroyl Sarcosinate, Glycol Distearate, Sodium Chloride, Decyl Glucoside, Parfum/Fragrance, Polyquaternium-10, PPG-5-Ceteth-20 Sodium Benzoate, Coco-Betaine,PEG-55 Propylene Glycol Oleate, Propylene Glycol, Salicylic Acid, Carbomer, Benzoic acid, Hexyl Cinnamal, Linalool, Bezyl Salicylate, Helianthus Annuus Seed Extract/Sunflower Seed Extract, Limonene, Benzyl Alcohol, Citronellol, Sodium Hydroxide, Citric Acid.

    I must admit I don't know much about the difference between sulfate and sulfoacetate etc. Would this shampoo be significantly more gentle than one containing sulfates?

    Eris, I gotta run and don't have the time to check those right now, but this website might help Ingredients Commonly Found in Hair Care Products
    I also found Sodium lauryl sulfoacetate on this site Alba | Glossary seems to be a skin friendly foaming ingredient, derived from coconut and palm oils.

    Thanks Rita PG! The Alba Botanica site was very helpful. It says that Sulfoacetate is a large molecule, that cannot penetrate the skin, which makes it gentle for the skin and hair. Sulfate, however, is a small molecule that can penetrate the skin and therefore is able to irritate it and as we all know, is very harsh both for the hair and skin.

    I went back and checked Sodium lauryl sulfoacetate vs. Sodium lauryl sulfate (damn, they really sound almost the same)
    Although an ingredient's name may sound similar to another, it does not mean that the molecules are similar with respect to shape, size, performance or even function. Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate sounds similar to Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, however, the two molecules are quite different from each other. Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate is a large molecule ingredient. Large molecule ingredients are considered to be mild, gentle, and non-irritating, as they cannot penetrate the skin. In contrast, Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is a small molecule ingredient, and is capable of penetrating the skin, which can increase the occurrence of skin irritation.
