Reviewer’s Thoughts

We are going to dispense with our normal review for this section. Tru Moroccan has, in our opinion crossed over the marketing claim line a tad too far. That belief is the story for this review.

In the text copied right off their text on Amazon are these words, “Our shampoo is made from the highest quality organic, vegan, plant-based ingredients.”

We do not believe that to be true. We also believe the company should change their ingredient list to be healthier especially with such a bold ‘health implying’ meaning. The message implies healthy, 98% (or so) of their ingredient list implies health, but this ingredient list comes with a potential for some serious toxicity.

Point #1 – Ammonium Laureth Sulfate (ALS)

By itself, ALS is rated rather low as a moderate risk. However, there is a high contamination risk of two other chemicals.

Ethylene Oxide is the highest threat level in our measuring system.

Cancer Concerns

  • Known human carcinogen – Int’l Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) – Carcinogens
  • Known human carcinogen – NTP Report on Carcinogens, 11th Edition
  • Possible human carcinogen – Amer Conf of Gov’t Industrial Hygienists – Carcinogens
  • Possible human carcinogen – NTP – Tumor Induction in Mammary Gland
  • Limited evidence of carcinogenicity NIOSH Occupational Carcinogens
  • One or more human case studies show possible cancer findings NTP – Tumor Induction in Mammary Gland
  • Cancer – limited evidence Silent Spring’s Mammary Carcinogens Reviews Database

1, 4-Dioxane

Cancer Concerns

  • Possible human carcinogen EPA Integrated Risk Information System (IRIS)
  • Possible human carcinogen NTP Report on Carcinogens, 11th Edition
  • Possible human carcinogen California EPA Proposition 65
  • Cancer – strong evidence Proposition 65 List of Carcinogens 
  • Limited evidence of carcinogenicity European Union – Classification & Labelling
  • Limited evidence of carcinogenicity Amer Conf of Gov’t Industrial Hygienists – Carcinogens
  • Limited evidence of carcinogenicity Int’l Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) – Carcinogens
  • Limited evidence of carcinogenicity NIOSH Occupational Carcinogens
  • Cancer – limited evidence Silent Spring’s Mammary Carcinogens Reviews Database

Now in both the case for Ethylene Oxide and 1, 4-Dioxane, we only listed the cancer concerns and not all the concerns.

In the BeHealtyBeMore scoring, we would rate the Ethylene Oxide as an automatic -20% reduction and not recommend the ingredient list be purchased in any product.

The 1, 4-Dioxane would be an automatic -15% deduction and depend on other factors, probably pan the ingredient list with a recommendation, not bot buy.

But in this case, the concern is for contamination. It is not known if there will be contamination. So it is up to you consider if the risk for contamination is worth your continued use of the ingredient list.

Ingredients Health Score

The Healthy Ingredients

We start with the healthy stuff. The longer the green bar, the more healthy the ingredient.

The Moderate Health Threats

The longer the orange bar, the healthier the ingredient. Some of the ingredient concerns will be listed with the ingredient name.

 

The High Health Threats

We don’t like seeing high health threats. They carry a 10% to 20% mandatory reduction to the ingredient health score. The longer the red bar, the higher the threat and the more you should consider finding something healthier.

Bottom Line

We know we will not be popular with our (1 / 5) rating. But then our purpose is not to be popular, but to help you make a healthy decision.

We do not believe this ingredient list is worth the potential risk so we recommend you look for something more healthy that will work for you.
