Honestly Good Ingredients

Posted by Jessica Armentano on

The problem: Sulfates strip your hair and scalp of its natural oils that are important to long term hair health. This will lead to your hair feeling very dry and brittle.

Our Solution: Your hair is perfectly capable of producing and managing its own natural oils. Candor simply assists that process with natural ingredients instead of overriding it with harsh chemicals.


The problem: Parabens are a type of preservative used in many shampoos and conditioners. While it allows products to last long, these parabens also enter your body through your scalp. Parabens could dry out your hair, cause scalp irritation, fade your hair color, hair loss, or exacerbate some skin conditions. Some studies even show that certain parabens mimic estrogen in the body, which could lead to breast cancer.

Our Solution: We use a preservative that is derived from plants. No synthetic chemicals, no harsh products.


The Problem: Phthalates are used in shampoos as solvents and can be found in artificial fragrance. Research shows that phthalates interfere with reproductive function and hormonal systems. They could also cause birth defects.

Our Solution: Phthalates are no where to be found in Candor. We made sure to source the most natural, wholesome ingredients that do not include phthalates.


The problem: Artificial fragrances are filled with chemicals and can cause major skin irritation. The chemicals within the artificial fragrance also can seep into your body through your scalp which could cause reproductive and developmental damage. These synthetic fragrances can be carcinogenic and are also linked to hormone disruption.

Our Solution: Candor uses a blend of all natural essential oils. Nothing artificial or synthetic. 


Because Candor does not use any of the ingredients listed above, our shampoo and conditioner is safe for color treated hair.
