Chemicals in Men’s Hair Styling Products

We were often frustrated by supposedly chemical-free hair clays that actually contained petrochemicals, such as paraffinum liquidum or mineral oil. That’s why we developed Reggie’s Hair Clay.

It’s important to remember that not all natural ingredients are good, and not all synthetic ingredients are bad, and vice versa.

However, there are known irritants and unnecessary ingredients that are used in men’s hair styling products with potentially harmful effects - especially when you consider the repetitive long-term usage of hair styling and cosmetics products.

Are All Petrochemicals in Cosmetics Bad?

No not all petrochemicals are bad, and not all natural ingredients are good. But there are plenty of scientific research surrounding petrochemicals and the toxicological effects on the skin. We prefer to be cautious where there is a question mark over the potential ingredient and choose natural ingredients formulas that provide performance without risk.

Chemical Free vs Natural vs Organic Extracts

To produce a chemical-free mens hair clay, the formulation will contain a water or oil based formula. Most are based on a petrochemical base with added natural ingredients. But even if a product contains certified organic extracts, doesn’t make it entirely natural. 

Many companies create products that imply there are chemical-free because they contain some natural organic extracts, but in reality they are based around mineral oil, from petrochemicals industry - check the label.

Is Reggie’s Hair Clay Chemical Free?

When we use the term chemical-free, we mean ingredients that are derived from petrochemicals or may cause irritation or adverse effects to your health, so yes RHC is chemical free.

In fact, it contains easily recognisable extracts including Kaolin (natural clay), Coconut, Argan, Mango, Apricot, Candelilla (natural wax), Almond, Grape and Vitamin E.

Our Formula Differs From Other Men’s Hair Clays?

Unlike typical men’s hair styling products, the all-natural formula also nourishes and promotes healthy hair growth throughout the day. Use a pea-sized amount for natural styles or add more product if you prefer a more stylised finish.

Because of its completely natural formula, it also perfect alternative to a beard oil. It helps to condition and sculpt beard hair without the greasiness that is often found with men’s beard oil. 

Chemical Ingredients That We Don't Use

None of our products use sulphates, parabens, silicon, alcohol, synthetic fragrances, hydrogenated oils, artificial colours, harsh preservatives or any petroleum-derived chemicals. Essentially, we stay way from any ingredients that could have a negative impact on your short or long term well-being.

Chemical Free Mens Hair Clay - The Bottom Line

We believe in developing high performing natural products that don’t rely on harsh chemicals. Not all petrochemicals are irritants or carcinogenic as some well-meaning bloggers report, but we think the risks are unnecessary given that natural alternatives are available.
