About Me

I have known about living good for a long time, but lost sight of the importance. I have regained my drive to live right, eat right, and watch the chemicals I put on my body. This includes eating ONLY organic foods and non-GMO foods.

Thought it was a good product

Posted by MacnAZ on Jun 05, 2016 | Verified Purchase

I have been doing the best that I can to avoid SLS and SLES for many months. I was pleased that I had learned that these chemicals could cause skin problems and that it was best to AVOID them. You can find these chemicals in toothpaste, soaps and many other items that will contact your body in one way or another. A couple of weeks ago I started to wonder about Sodium Coco Sulfate and decided to do research and find ANSWERS! When I did the research I was very disappointed with what I found because the companies that are making a BIG DEAL about their product being from coconut is misleading. It is an outright LIE that the coconut form of SLS is different. It is NOT! They are DECEIVING the consumer. Sodium Laurel Sulfate, Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Sodium Coco Sulfate are chemically THE SAME! [CH3(CH2)11SO4Na] There is no difference in the molecular structure. They are synthetic detergents. Sodium Laurel Sulfate (SLS) is made by mixing lauryl alcohol with sulfuric acid and then adding sodium carbonate. Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES) is actually worse and to make it less irritating they ethoxylate it. This means they add ethylene oxide to modify it. This reduces the irritation level of the chemical. SLES is a cheaper form of SLS and that is why many companies use it. The source of the raw materials; whether from coconut oil, palm oil or petroleum does not matter. Through the chemical synthesizing process the end product is still SLS or SLES and it is STILL BAD! The end product is very different from the raw materials that are used. I am not able to put my source links here, so do some research of your own and then we can expose the deceptive labeling that some companies are using.

Overpriced

Posted by MacnAZ on May 11, 2016 | Verified Purchase

This infuser gets the job done. It is very thin and at the list price I would have wanted a refund. Grab this item when on special and it will lesson the disappointment.

LactoBif Probiotics Review

Posted by MacnAZ on Nov 22, 2015 | Verified Purchase

This seems to be a good product. It is reasonably priced and refrigeration is not required, but it is recommended. It is not produced with many different allergens (see product description), but it is produced in a facility that produces those same allergens. This is questionable because it is not known just how careful they are in the production facility. This product is suitable for vegetarians.

Red Raspberry Conditioner

Posted by MacnAZ on Sep 04, 2016 | Verified Purchase

This product is pretty good. I rate it 2 stars because this company on other products deceive the consumer with sodium coco sulfate. That is still Sodium Laurel Sulfate. See my other reviews regarding more details and clarification on my statement. I most likely will NOT order any products from this company in the future because of their deception.

Thanks for your feedback!

Great Product

Posted by MacnAZ on Nov 01, 2015 | Verified Purchase

I have found a better product that changes the review by 3 stars. I am not pleased with the deception that Desert Essence exhibits with sodium coco sulfate. It is not in this product. Sodium coco sulfate is SLS, so do not be deceived.
