FAST or Fortified Amino Scalp Therapy is made of natural ingredients like amino acids, B-complex vitamins and a proprietary blend of herbs. Amino acids are the building blocks of protein, which is needed for hair growth since this is what hair is mostly made of. Vitamins like biotin and pantothenic acid help strengthen hair. Biotin or vitamin B7 makes each hair strand stronger, while pantothenic acid or vitamin B5 makes hair very soft, shiny and slippery, making brushing or combing easy hence minimizes hair breakage.  One of the special herbal actives used in FAST is saw palmetto extract which comes from the saw palmetto palm tree.

FAST Hair Growth: Health Concerns With Products Containing Parabens and SLS

fast hair growthIn the recent years, there have been a lot of buzz about products especially shampoos and conditioners containing parabens and SLS or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate. For this reason, some manufacturers produced paraben and SLS free products like FAST shampoo and conditioner, a special product from Nisim that help stimulate fast hair growth. Why the sudden demand of paraben and SLS free shampoos and conditioners?

There is a huge health concern with shampoos and conditioners containing these ingredients. Surprisingly, almost all or probably all commercial toiletry and beauty products like shampoos, conditioners, lipsticks, toothpaste and many more  have paraben and SLS.

What are parabens and SLS?

Parabens are chemicals commonly used as a preservative by cosmetics and pharmaceutical industries. This compound is primarily used for its antibacterial and antifungal properties. It also works well with all sorts of formulas.  Parabens are also very cheap hence their popularity with manufacturers.

The problem with parabens is it’s probable carcinogenic properties. Paraben have been found in breast cancer tumors. It is also capable of mimicking estrogen, a hormone known to play a role in the development of breast cancer. Though after all these factors there is still no direct links between parabens and breast cancer.

SLS or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is commonly used on soaps, detergent, tooth paste and other products that foam up. Basically SLS is a foaming agent and is labeled of many products as a surfactant. SLS is not carcinogenic but it is a highly irritating when exposed directly on skin for a period of time. That’s why this substance is used in shampoos as a wash off agent. SLS is what causes our eyes to tear up when we get a little shampoo foam on our eyes. Although SLS is safe, many complain that it is too strong for human use as it is also used on motor engine for decreasing.

So why do products still contain these dangerous ingredient? Because they’re dirt cheap and they do their job well in preserving and lengthening the shelf life of their products. Talk about social responsibility.

But hey, you have a choice, buy yourself a bottle of paraben and SLS free products like FAST hair growth shampoo. Nisim, the makers of FAST, is renowned for innovation and is a leader in producing all-natural based hair products.
