Biolage's original shampoo contains water, sodium laureth sulfate, sodium lauryl sulfate, cocamidopropyl betaine, cocamide MPA, sodium chloride, hexylene glycol, perfume, sodium benzoate, salicylic acid, glycol distearate, aloe leaf juice, guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride, limonene, methylcocoate, coumarin, linalool and butyphenyl. Each ingredient serves a different purpose and makes Biolage shampoo unique in its formulation.
The sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfate act as cleansers, while the aloe juice acts as a moisturizer, leaving course, dry hair soft, nourished and smooth. The cocamidopropyl betaine is an ingredient derived from coconut oil which nourishes the hair, and the salicylic acid is a staple in many types of skin and hair care products. Guar hydroxypropyltrimonium chloride is an organic ingredient that provides conditioning for even the driest hair and helps make the hair silky, manageable and soft. Sodium chloride is salt, and the coumarin in Biolage shampoos adds an earthy fragrance to the mixture.
Every ingredient in Biolage shampoos work well together, but some people with sensitive skin may have a problem with allergic reactions to some of the ingredients.
