Why Lush put SLS in their conditioners
 
The SLS is like the 3rd ingredient. What's the purpose of this? :/

None that I can see! This topic has come up before on here but I don't think anyone has come up with a reason for it. Shame really as some of their conditioners look pretty good otherwise.

I work for the company, and the official line is 'To help wash the conditioners out to prevent build up'
Which is, to my mind, utter nonsense.

They recenetly released a 'gentle' shampoo for people with dry or coloured hair, but the only difference is they've subsituted ALS for the usual SLS - it's still sulfites, people!

I find it so frustrating that so few of their products are GC freindly!

I'm not totally CG (i tried to co wash once and absolutely hated it, so I just cut out cones) so I still use Lush's shampoos and conditioners. I'm not sure how different their SLS is compared (sometimes it's listed cetearyl alcohol & SLS) to others but it seems less harsh. As long as I don't use them twice in a row or a day apart, I do fine (I alternate with Burt's Bees). Although they FINALLY have a SLS free conditioner AND it's solid! It's called Big and I am in love with it. I didn't like the new gentle, non-stripping shampoo at all. I did like Fair Trade Honey shampoo, it's 50% honey which makes it really moisturizing and humectant.
