What does an entry on electronics have to do with a beauty blog? Plenty.
I had some electronics installed this past weekend and when the installer was finished, I was given a little bottle of LED screen cleaner.
I was told to not use any other household cleaners on the screen.
I'm not the type of person that gets told something, without questioning it. So I did.
"What is wrong with household cleaners?." I ask.
"The chemicals are too strong." I'm told.
Though that makes sense to me, I'm a curious girl and I simply must investigate. So, I read the label.
Free of alcohol - I understand that.
Free of ammonia - I understand that.
Free of sodium laurel and sulfates - Ah Ha! The reason for this blog post!
Anyone who reads this blog knows that sodium laurel/laureth sulfates have been written about, plenty.
They are surfactants that give soaps and shampoo their suds and they're controversial. Please, do the research.
LED screens are made of plastic/glass and I was told not to use sulfates to clean them? Ok, I get it.
But, it IS ok for sulfates to be a common ingredient in 99% of the shampoo and body cleansers we use on our body/skin every day?!
Well, it's not ok with me.
