SENSE OF HUMOUR

(日本語) リンス剤不使用のこだわり

Wed, 18 Mar 2015

こんにちは。

きのう都内は20℃を超えたようですね。ちょっと暑いくらいでした。
春になったら〜とか、春に向けて〜とか言ってる間に気がつけばとっくに春になってる、というのを毎年感じています。春は突然…。

 

さて、プロダクトについて長らく書いておりませんでした。申し訳ございません。
今日からボヘミアンコンディショナーの成分や特徴について何回か分けてお話したいと思います。


ボヘミアンコンディショナーの開発にはかなり時間がかかりました。
どうしてもリンス剤を配合したくなかったのです。今日はその理由をお話します。

 

リンス剤とは…
第四級アンモニウム塩というカチオン(陽イオン)界面活性剤のことを私たちはリンス剤と呼んでいます。
代表的なもので言えば、ステアルリモニウムクロリドやセトリモニウムブロミドなど。どちらも旧表示指定成分です。
役目としては、シャンプー後の髪のコンディショニングをし、しなやかな柔軟性を与えます。ダメージ補修の効果はなく、髪の質感を一時的にアップさせる。
第四級アンモニウム塩は、リンス・コンディショナー・トリートメントだけでなく、衣類用柔軟剤、消臭スプレーなど幅広く使われている化学物質です。

 

リンス剤を使わない理由その①
毒性が高い
カチオン界面活性剤の毒性や危険性については近年ようやく注目され始めた感じでしょうか。
濃度にもよりますが基本的には非生体向けの除菌などに使われる化学物質です。これが生体に対して用いられると、経口毒性・経皮毒性が高く刺激となってしまいます。意外ですが、シャンプーの洗浄剤よりも刺激は強いです。

 

リンス剤を使わない理由その②
タンパク変性作用がある
皮膚は繊維状タンパク質であるコラーゲンとケラチンから構成されています。カチオン界面活性剤はこれらのタンパク質の結合を切断することにより、タンパク質を変性してしまいます。さらにカチオン系は吸着して残留しやすいので、継続して使うことでさらに刺激になっていることも考えられます。破壊→刺激を繰り返していることになります。

 

市場にあるほとんどのリンスやコンディショナー、トリートメントにはリンス剤が含まれています。リンス剤が入っていないものを探すほうが大変です。
確かに、髪につけた途端するっと指通りが滑らかになることは使っていて気持ちがいいです。分かります。そういう点では、ボヘミアンコンディショナーは即効性がなく物足りなさを感じる方もいるかもしれません。でも上記の危険性を知ると、リンス剤って避けたほうがいいんだなということがご理解いただけると思います。

 

リンス剤を配合しない代わりに、私たちが配合したもの。それはオーガニックアルガンオイルです。それもたっぷりと。
次回はアルガンオイルについてお話したいと思います。
