What are sulphates? Are these bad in skincare and why?

Sulphates are quite a common ingredient that have a bad rep as a harsh cleansing agent in skincare and haircare. Essentially they are seen to cause sensitivity and irritation.

All of the products we retail in our studios are free from sulphates (look to Leif, Herbivore, Nimbus & Co oils). Products that are sulphate-free don’t tend to ‘lather’ as much as they no longer have a foaming agent.
