How to choose sustainable shampoo
When shopping for shampoo, avoid products that contain sulfates, phosphates, and synthetic fragrances. Instead, look for products that are EWG certified (which ensures the product is free from chemicals of concern), Fair Trade certified (which benefits the people making the product), and the PETA or Leaping Bunny certified (which both ensure no animal testing was performed using the product). Choose a plastic-free shampoo bar to cut down on plastic waste in your shower routine.
The highest scoring shampoo
The first modern shampoo was made from surfactants in the 1930s… and some of the ingredients used in that original formula are still being used to this day.
