Below, you will find a list of ingredients and a brief explanation of their benefits.  If you have any further questions please email us at info@ecocoinc.com.

CARMOMER - This non-toxic emulsifier helps to increase thickness and consistency of good hair gel.

TEA (Triethanolamine)* - TEA can indeed contain nitrosamines which are known to be carcinogenic. However,  the cosmetic grade TEA we use has previously been analyzed and there was no detectable nitrosamine across several batches (J Soc Cosmet Chem, pp 237-252, 1980). The word 'detectable' is important because the instruments used can find nitrosamines if there is even one nanogram (1 billionth of a gram) present...yes really that little! Therefore if this type of cosmetic grade TEA is used for the gel, it will have no detectable amounts of nitrosamine.

Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein- Hydrates and improves moisture content of hair.  NON-ANIMAL derived source. Provides amino acids to skin, hair and scalp.

PVP - Water soluble binding agent. FDA approved for use as clarifying agent in beer & wine as well.

Glycerin - Vegetable based compound containing many good lipids that soften hair.

Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate - Derived from a naturally occurring amino acid this acts as a great hair conditioner and provides a natural alternative to parabens.

Polysorbate 20 - This is a solubilizer for fragrance that also adds soothing effects on the skin.  Derived from fruits and berries.

Tetrasodium EDTA – This water soluble ingredient is used     to help neutralize ions and prevent microbial growth. Derived from glycerin, this is commonly used in food items as well.


*TEA can indeed contain nitrosamines which are known to be carcinogenic. However, cosmetic grade TEA from Dow Chemical Co. has previously been analyzed independently and there was no detectable nitrosamine across several batches (J Soc Cosmet Chem, pp 237-252, 1980). The word 'detectable' is important because the instruments used can find nitrosamines if there is even one nanogram (1 billionth of a gram) present......yes really that little! Therefore if this type of cosmetic grade TEA is used for the gel, it will have no detectable amounts of nitrosamine.
