Our products are 97% natural with many wonderful natural ingredients. The remaining 3% is made up of the preservative system, which stops the product from going off after opening, emulsifying agents, which are necessary to stop ingredients from separating, and some lovely fragrances to make your hair smell delicious.
Certainly not! Noughty is never tested on animals.
Yes. We love animals, so we try to ensure this is reflected in our products. All our products are vegetarian and vegan friendly which means we do not use any ingredients such as lanolin or keratin which can be found widely within haircare products.
Sulphates (or SLS) are often added to make products foam. Noughty is SLS free and uses alternative natural detergents that are just as effective for cleaning your hair. The trick is to add plenty of water and make sure you store the product at room temperature. Many people associate foaming properties with cleansing but these two things do not have to be related. So don’t worry, Noughty will still leave you with that lovely clean feeling!
We don’t use silicones, parabens, sulphates and petrochemicals in our Noughty products. For us, it’s all about choice – about preferring to reduce our toxic load and use as many friendly ingredients as possible. Instead we use alternative natural ingredients with wonderful results that leave your hair healthy and happy.
Look on the back of most personal hygiene products, such as deodorants, toothpastes, makeup and shampoo and it’s likely you’ll find parabens in there somewhere. There are four main parabens: butyl paraben, propyl paraben, para-hydroxybenzoic acid and ethyl paraben. They’re included in a lot of products because they are aggressive in destroying most of the bacteria that form in toiletries. However, parabens have been known to cause possible skin irritation for scalps which are more sensitive. At Noughty we choose not to use any parabens as we want our products as gentle as possible. Instead, all our products contain Sodium Hydroxymethylglycinate (try saying that after a glass of wine); a gentle and effective preservative ensuring the end product is of utmost purity for our Noughty fans.
Ingredients such as petrolatum, paraffin liquidum and mineral oils are added to many haircare products as they work successfully and instantly as a smoothing agent, to give soft skin or smooth hair. However, these types of ingredients can sit heavily on skin and hair which could lead to residue build up resulting in lank hair. We don’t think they are necessary in our products as we can achieve the same performance and textures through finely balancing select natural waxes and oils, which will help to reduce build up on your hair.
Sulphates, more commonly known as SLS, is the most common surfactant used in toiletries to make them foam and cleanse. It is widely used by manufacturers because it’s cheap and effective. However SLS can strip the skin and hair of its natural oils which can have a drying and sometimes irritating effect on the skin. You won’t find SLS in any of the Noughty products – instead we use a cleansing and foaming agent derived from coconut that is much softer and kinder to your skin.
Here at Noughty we use derivatives of palm oil in the production of some of our products as this gives the best results for hair. Sustainability is really important to us so we purchase all our palm oil and palm kernel oils from members of the round table of sustainable palm oil (RSPO).
Since 2004, RSPO has been transforming the palm oil industry in collaboration with the global supply chain, to put it on a sustainable path.
All the products in the Noughty range are 97% natural and are formulated to be extremely gentle, leaving out possible irritants such as sulphates and parabens. However, if you have any history of skin problems or allergies you should speak to your GP first and carry out a patch test on your wrist or behind your ear prior to using any of our products for the first time.
We know some of you have intolerance. These are all of our products that are gluten free:
Oh how exciting! All our products are safe for mums to be. However if you do have any concerns, please seek medical advice from your GP or midwife.
If a product is unopened, the shelf life is up to 3 years. Make sure to keep it in a dry place, away from direct sunlight (not that we get much here). Once opened and stored correctly you`ll need to refer to the `period after opening` symbol on the back of the label. This is a diagram of an open jar with a number next to it. This refers to the number of months the product will last after opening provided it’s properly closed and stored after each use.
