Anyone know where you can get sls free personal products.

I'm more specifically after, shampoo, conditioner, toothpaste, possibly baby bath.  Everything really.   ohmy.gif

Or even how to make them would be of great help.

I use Natural instinct products.  I buy them from regular chemists.  They are not expensive.

I use Shampoo, conditioner, body wash, baby shampoo, baby bath, facial cleanser.

I started with the smaller bottles to see if I liked them and now I have stocked up with large litre bottles which I decant into the smaller ones.  You can often get a free gift with purchase when you buy the big bottles- eg free body wash with shampoo and conditioner, free cleanser with body wash.

MooGoo is good, perfect for dry and sensitive skin too! original.gif

I don't think they do toothpaste though...

Neways has no SLS or SLES which is worse.

Neways website looks terrible.  

Think Amway or other nasty pressure sellers.

I agree with Kylie, Neways products are fantastic particularly the baby range. I have never been pressured into buying anything, and when you join as a wholesale buyer there is no need to pressure anyone else. In terms of safety the only other products I know of are miessence which are supposed to be all natural/organic but I have heard they are expensive and can cause sensitive skinned people to have bad reactions.

Yep, I tried Miessence, I had a reaction and their shampoo made my hair go yuck.

I have used neways for years and find them great.  A bit on the expensive side, but I feel very confindent with their products, especially the hair care range.

Absolutely Neways has a great range of products that do not contain potentially harmful ingredients - their baby range is great.

I use Miessence deodorant everyday and have never had any issues with it. I also use their make-up and again - no issues, so it may work for you. SOme of their stuff is quite well priced.

Second Natural Instincts - well priced. Fairly easy to buy.

Woolworths do a natural toothpaste - Naytura brand - no SLS, but the best one is Red Seal Natural. Be careful as Red Seal make a few different ones but Natural is the only one I believe with no SLS. Usually only find it at health food shops. If you are in Sydney or Melbourne, I know Macro wholefoods stock it.

TriNature also have natural body products too now I think. They were actually one of the first on the market back in the early 1990's and so have stood the test of time, but I think the personal products are relatively new to them. http://www.trinature.com/index.html
If you read this page, you will see that the 'chemical' sounding names are really just natural things (albeit heat treated - therefore molecularly altered), it's often just hard to discern these names from the real menaces. Consequently, I usually won't buy anything that even sounds chemical!

I went to the PBC expo the other day and found a new Avocado based product that is about to be released in Franklins. It is called Avado.


They have shampoo, conditioner, moisturiser, shower gel and just the Avo oil itself - supposed to be very good for you. They make a baby range too and were developed by a mother with a child with excema.

Hope this helps.

I to recently started using neways products. I have found the baby wash and moisturiser to work fantastically on both my kids who have excema. there excema is now nearly non existent.
I was never pressured to buy anything, and signed up to get the wholesale prices only because they are sooooooooooo much cheaper that way. I am totally satisfied. I use the toothpaste, mouthwash, bath and shower gel, kids body wash, moisturiser, foundation, and face makeup and oracal vitamins. only took them for three days before getting a lot more energy than i usually have. and the roll on deodorant is great - i thought I would start smelling a little while after putting it on, but I'm not joking it lasts all day long (although obviously not going to the gym) lol.

Hello everyone,

I have tried a new range that's made just for kids called Tiny Tribe.  They do a SLS and SLES free range of shampoo, conditioner, bubble bath and a baby hair and body wash also.

We use the bubble bath as my son has really dry and sensitive skin and it smells amazing, I seriously have to have a big smoochy session with him when he gets out of the bath!

I got the bubble bath at my local health food store, the tubes are brightly printed which my son also likes.

Hope this helps anyone else out there concerned with using chemicals on their kids. biggrin.gif  www.tribekids.com.au

Avalon from health stores is great. I like all of their products (shampoos, conditioners, etc.) but particularly their herbal deodorants!

I use Alchemy shampoo and conditioner and bodywash. The sandalwood one smells beautiful.

Weleda plant gel toothpaste is my favourite. SLS and fluoride free. They also have a salt one which is fine to use when on homeopathics.

Hi all,
UNfortunatly neways started the unsubstantiated rumours regarding sls.Although once threatened with legal action retracted the statements. Although  now a lot of mis informed people are running with the idea it is harmful.
