  • Chemicals – SLS, Sodium citrate, Methyl cellulose, Glycerin, Methyl paraben.

Theory –

A viscous cosmetic preparation with synthetic detergent used for washing hair is called shampoo. Its principal function is to clean the scalp such that it should become free from sebum and foreign substances. Shampoo also makes the hair lustrous and good-looking. In olden days detergent soap was used for washing hair, but nowadays it has been replaced by shampoo. Today shampoo has become an important hair cosmetic for both men and women. However, the detergent and other raw materials selected for shampoo preparation should be nontoxic to tile scalp, eyes etc. Apart from cleaning, shampoo may also be used for medicinal purposes (i.e., medicated shampoo). After preparation, each and every shampoo must be evaluated.
