Öko-Test tests shampoos - more than just a beautiful appearance?

A total of 41 conventional shampoos and natural cosmetics shampoos were examined in more detail in the current issue of Stiftung Warentest magazine. More than half (24 products) scored very good or good, 9 products were rated satisfactory, and the remaining 10 products were rated as maximum satisfactory.

Which product properties and ingredients led to the devaluation? Essentially these were:

  • Silicones and silicon-containing compounds such as dimethicone
  • certain preservatives such as parabens or thiazolinones
  • UV filters such as ethylhexylmethoxycinnamate
  • Critical fragrances such as Lilial
  • PEG and PEG derivatives

It was also considered which substances can remain in the environment for a long time due to their properties as residues and can therefore lead to problems.
