TEAR- FREE SOAP: THE HIDDEN TRUTH !
It will interest you to know that tear-free soaps are not really what they claim to be. Most baby shampoo’s contain sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS), a chemical responsible for the foam and bubbles produced by most soaps. This chemical, however, itches badly if it comes in contact with the eyes. Many believe that baby shampoo manufacturers have turned to other chemical additives to help neutralize the sting, but the real truth is, tear-free soaps are not really tear free, rather, they contain other chemicals that work by numbing or paralyzing the tear ducts, thereby reducing the reaction of the eyes to SLS.
The evidence behind this claim is variable, but so called, “Tear-free soaps” are being criticized more harshly for containing chemicals that inhibit the transmission of pain from the tear ducts, thereby making it free from tears. If the tear ducts are paralyzed temporarily, they can not produce and excrete tears as they normally would and this is capable of leading to some certain complications in the eyes.
Reading a list of ingredients off a bottle of baby shampoo may feel as if you are trying to read something written in Greek. Of course, baby shampoo companies do not list an ingredient in a recognizable form like “anesthesia”, “anesthetic agent” or “Tear duct paralyzer” and this makes it difficult for people to interpret. Ingredients containing “PEG” as a prefix, followed by a number are often responsible for the anesthetic effect of baby shampoos in the tear ducts. The worst part is, scientists are not yet sure exactly, the impact of PEG on human health.
