JR Liggett products contain no Sodium Lauryl Sulfates (SLES)
Chemical name: Sodium Lauryl "ether" Sulfate. An ether chain is added to SLS, and is called a premium agent in cleansers and shampoos. In reality it is very inexpensive, but thickens when Sodium Chloride (salt-NaCl) is added in the formula and products high levels of foam to give the concentrated illusion it is thick, rich, and expensive. Used as a wetting agent in the textile industry, SLES is irritating to scalp and may cause hair loss.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is an anionic detergent. It is used all over the world. SLS is the universal standard used to irritate skin in clinical testing so medical researchers can test ingredients to see how fast the skin heals.
It is commonly found in liquid soaps and shampoos, bubble baths, bath and shower gels, and in most all toothpastes marketed throughout the world. SLS has showed penetration into the eyes, as well as systemic tissues (brain, heart, liver, etc.). SLS also showed long-term retention in tissues. Because SLS and related substances are widely used in many populations on a daily basis in soaps and shampoos, there is an immediate concern relating to the penetration of these chemicals into the eyes and other tissues.

Who is JR Liggett?
A number of years ago, after discovering an old New England recipe for this wonderful and unique hair shampoo, JR Liggett began making it. The family fell in love with it, even their dogs. Friends asked if they could try the homemade bar shampoo. So they gave them some.
The amounts they made kept getting larger and larger. Friends always seemed to come back for more. They said things like: "It doesn't irritate my scalp," "I have grey hair and this shampoo doesn't give it a yellow look," "My hair's fuller and feels healthier."
Finally, JR Liggett figured that if the family and friends enjoyed this shampoo so much, there might be others out there who would feel the same way. Since 1985 they have sold hundreds of thousands of bars to people all over the world.
Today, well over a decade from when JR Liggett sold their first bars, they are still getting letters from people who are still excited over having just discovered their shampoo. Now JR Liggett has other products that are just as unique and work well.
