Default Thoughts on this shampoo? CG?

Fragrance Free Shampoo | J

Thanks!

ETA: never mind, just retread the ingredients and saw a sulfate

Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate - are you referring to this ingredient? It's actually not a sulfate. And it's gentle, so the shampoo is actually a low-poo and so CG-friendly.

Refer to the article below for a list of harsh and gentle surfactants.

I was referring to the sodium sulfate. It is toward the bottom of the ingredient list.

I looked it up and it's a salt from what I understand. Someone please correct me if I'm wrong.

Yep - it's just salt (the salt of sulfuric acid to be precise)

Yes, it's CG. However, salt can be drying. There's not a lot of it in that shampoo, so just monitor your hair. You may notice effects over time, as opposed to a single wash.
