Silicone-free products, why prefer them to other products?

Silicone-free products, why prefer them to other products?

You often hear that people prefer silicone-free shampoos like our (silicone free hair and body shower gel for men) and any other silicone free product… but what is the reason for that?

Is silicone that bad?

Silicone is actually a petroleum derivative that slips into many formulations for its practicality, cheapness and the silky (but very very superficial) appearance it gives to the skin, but is it really that good?

At Les Sens de Marrakech , we have never used silicones and never will, we love your skin and nature too much for that.

Silicone has no benefit for the skin

First of all, they are not active ingredients, that is, they play no role in the protection and care of the skin. In summary, using them is absolutely useless... although... they serve to pollute the planet given the interminable time (500) years they take to disintegrate, and, for some, to be endocrine disruptors.

In addition, the silicone, by dint of using it, will create a barrier on the skin or on the hair which no longer allows the skin to absorb the good ingredients that will do it good. For example, women who put silicone-based serums in their hair often have trouble coloring it afterwards. The barrier that the silicone creates is such that nothing can pass through it. It is the same for the skin.

How to recognize silicone-free products?

When reading the ingredients of the products you wish to buy, all you have to do is note the names of these ingredients which end with “Silicine oil (the easiest) and very often with the suffixes “…. ciloxane, ….silane, …..thicone”. And here you will most likely be very surprised by the number of products that contain silicones.

It is strictly recommended to use silicone-free products to facilitate skin and hair care. We have therefore chosen to replace all these silicones with natural vegetable oils. Admittedly, their cost is higher in our formulas, they are also less stable and the products are more difficult to set up, but nothing beats a vegetable oil, whether argan, sunflower, sweet almond or generally all vegetable oils.

Choose Les Sens de Marrakech cosmetic products, such as the silicone-free face cream based on 100% natural argan oil or natural black soap from Morocco for home hammam showers.
