Implementing Alternatives to Sodium Laureth Sulphate Shampoos

If possible, and if you have the time, use a shampoo that doesn't contain sodium laureth sulphate, such as MD Rx Anti-Inflammatory Scalp Decongesting Cleanser, or re-purpose a suitable facial cleansing product as a shampoo.

Jan Marini C-ESTA Cleansing Gel and Jan Marini Bioclean have been used to relieve an itchy scalp and scalp acne, and, in an off-off-label use of Bioclean, Maltese dermatitis.

Rinsing Sodium Laureth Sulphate Shampoos Clear

Sodium laureth sulphate's alkaline nature means it will remain on the skin unless it is rinsed very thoroughly — rinse sodium laureth sulfate shampoos profusely to ensure they're removed.

Commencing Use of Shampoos not containing Sodium Laureth Sulphate

Upon commencing use of shampoos not containing sodium laureth sulphate, or low-foaming shampoos, a few individuals have commented that they miss the cascading sound of heavy suds hitting the shower floor, but mostly they express a kind of liberation at having cleansed their scalps deeply for the first time.

This low or no-foaming method of cleansing the scalp improves the hair's volume by desincrusting the follicles of the same sebum and dead cells commonplace shampoos help fix in place to produce long-lasting lift without the use of additional styling products.

Relieving an Itchy Scalp or Scalp Acne

Itchy scalp and scalp acne appear to have become more commonplace over the last decade, either due to a simple increase in concern of these conditions or changes in the way we care for our hair and scalp.

Some of the causes of an itchy scalp or scalp acne may be easily relieved.

  • If you've been washing your hair daily in an attempt to control the problem, try washing it only every other or every third day. If this brings relief, you may be allergic to one or more ingredients in your shampoo, or the formula may simply be too stripping.
    • If you need to wash your hair daily, switch to a milder shampoo that doesn't aggress your scalp, this can prevent dermatitis responsible for itching and excess sebum leading to acne.
  • Try a shampoo which doesn't contain sodium laureth sulfate — an increasing number of people seem to react to this ingredient, or perhaps its combined properties of being both alkaline, surfactant and over used.
  • Use an appropriate gel based facial cleanser in place of shampoo, such as Jan Marini Bioclean or C-ESTA Cleanser. Users suffering from an itchy scalp or scalp acne report these two products, suitable for sensitive, oily skin with or without areas of dryness, leave their hair and scalp clean and soothed.
  • Obtain an appointment for our professional salicylic acid scalp treatment, zinc and titanium based scalp deep cleansing, or a prescription retinoid like Retin-A. (Do not use salicylic acid and retinol at the same time).
  • Always dry the hair thoroughly after washing to avoid chapping and the development of yeasts and scalp acne bacteria — use a hair dryer, or weather permitting towel try hair well and go for a walk.

MD Rx Anti-Inflammatory Scalp Decongesting Cleanser — Scalp Acne/Seborrhea/Follicle Congestion

A refreshing soap, detergent and fragrance-free scalp cleanser with anti-inflammatory properties specific to the needs of patients with a range of persistent scalp conditions or annoyances.

Particularly useful in cases of scalp acne, itchy scalp and irritation from the large amounts of propylene glycol and alcohol present in topical minoxidil medications including Regaine and Rogaine.

The essential cleansing action of the product is provided by betaines and natural saponins (derived from Yucca) in place of sulphate cleansers such as sodium laureth sulphate.

Cleanser agents such as sodium laureth sulphate produce large amounts of foam, however are characteristically superficial cleansers with little deep-cleansing ability and a tendency to provoke minor skin irritation, particularly where the scalp's stratum corneum functions poorly due to daily application of hair loss medications or harsh shampoos.

Betaine cleansers and natural saponins produce little foam when first applied, however are intrinsically more efficient cleansers, better able to emulsify hardened sebum/wax which can block hair follicles and help foster propionibacterium, excess dihydrotestosterone and inflammation implicated in hair loss, itchy scalp and scalp acne.

These agents also function well at a pH around that of healthy skin (slightly acidic), whereas traditional foaming cleansers require more alkaline conditions to do their work, and therefore disrupt the stratum corneum's naturally acidic mantle.

Not surprisingly, betaines and natural saponins are also more effective in treating facial visibly open pores than sodium laureth sulphate because they remove detritus thoroughly and without encouraging conditions for deeper congestion.

MD Rx Anti-Inflammatory Decongesting Scalp Cleanser reduces the amount of redundant, oxidizing material retained within hair follicles to yield progressive improvement across a range of concerns:

  • Scalp Acne reduced and eliminated by allowing environmental oxygen to reach propionibacterium fostered by dead cell build up;

  • Itchy Scalprelieved by resurfacing the scalp surface and restoring a more ideal pH to the stratum corneum;

  • Irritated or Sensitive Scalp — anti-inflammatories deposited while cleansing reduce sensations of itchiness, prickling and unevenness of the scalp surface; if red or grey, the scalp will become progressively whiter as it is relieved of oxidative stress;

  • Poor Hair Volume — the formula's scalp resurfacing and stimulating effect clears debris from the base of follicles, allowing hair to become more consistently buoyant; where hair is prone to oily roots, the treatment's resurfacing and soothing effect also allows natural sebum to flow more easily and finely to coat individual hair shafts more uniformly.

  • Hair Loss — dihydrotestosterone binds to sebum, therefore preventing accumulation of oxidizing sebum within hair follicles probably lessens the hormone's tendency to miniaturize hair bulbs, a process repeated throughout the scalp and which leaves hair progressively less well "anchored" and prone to falling out before its time; purification of the hair follicles and resurfacing of the scalp's stratum corneum are also likely to enhance penetration of minoxidil, producing both better and faster results, less unnecessary whitening coating of the hair and less superficial scalp irritations.

MD Rx Anti-Inflammatory Decongesting Scalp Cleanser:

  • does not contain any form of tar;
  • has a light, fluid texture that allows for better penetration and easier rinsing;
  • is supplied in glass to minimize the need for preservatives without compromising the formula's long-term stability.
