Fragrance-free shampoo

Postby Dolph » Mon, 03 Sep 2007 11:42 am

I use the "Simple" range of dermatologically approved hygiene products which are available at most chemists here in Singapore, but I haven't been able to find fragrance-free shampoo/conditioner (perhaps I haven't been looking thoroughly enough?!). Any recommendations out there?

FRAGRANCE-FREE SHAMPOO/CONDITIONER

Postby imie » Tue, 25 Sep 2007 10:14 am

Hi Dolph, I'm afraid I'm not quite getting you. What do you mean by FRAGRANCE-FREE SHAMPOO/CONDITIONER? As from what I know, all all hair care products have fragrance. Unless you are talking about without artificial fragrance then I would recommend you the Satinique range. They are very good. i've used so many types of shampoos & conditioners even those recommended by salon stylists. They are good too but expensive.

The Satinique range is absolutely affordable & can be worth your every penny.

Could get some if you want?

I haven't seen Simple shampoo here, Dolph - which I find odd as the rest of the range seems to be available.

I try to use product with only natural fragrances and also no Sodium Laureth Sulfate or Parbens. I'm currently trying out one I got in the NTUC pharmacy in Raffles City; it's an Australian brand called Renew. So far so good. :)

You should take a trip to Brown Rice Paradise in Tanglin Mall to see what products they have, if you haven't found it already.

Thanks, I will give that a go. It is so hard getting decent dermatologically approved and perfume-free products in Singapore. *Sigh*.

It may be bad now but it is much, much better than it was five years ago! Quite a few of the bigger pharmacies stock some, and also there is a good selection at the National Skin Centre just off Moulmein Road. Thinking about it, the pharmacy at Gleneagles Hospital is good, too. Maybe all hospitals?

For skincare I use Dermalogica as I've found that, of the "normal" ranges (i.e., non-organic) it has the least nasty chemicals. I buy it online from strawberrynet.

You could also try the Miessence organic range which I think is stocked at the pharmacy at Camden Medical Centre, and there is a store in Raffles City basement that stocks a few organic ranges.

if you bear to make the journey, go to organic paradise at temple street, chinatown. it has a largest range of organic household, beauty and food products i've ever seen. For beauty alone, they stock well known organic brands like Nature's Gate, Burt's Bee skincare and Giovanni haircare. All SLS, paraben, lanolin and fragrance free. I know organic nuts who only use organic skin and hair care so they go to there to stock up on 3 months' supplies of everything at one go, which is why stock gets depleted really fast there
