POSTGAME (shampoo, body wash and 3 in 1) Review and Giveaway - Ends 05-12-11

Print Friendly and PDF

Sponsored by Tomoson.com


Most body washes, shampoos and conditioners have sulfate, paraben and phtalate in them.  Postgame has some awesome personal hygiene products for the man in your life that does not have that nasty stuff in it.  My  husband used all 3 of these awesome products and he loved them, they all worked great for him.  It left his hair nice and soft, with a delightful scent.  The body wash works awesome and the scent is just right, not over powering.

The Free Story

Research relating to sulfates, parabens and phthalates has been surfacing and circulating with more and more strength.  But how does that relate to shampoo and body wash, and why should you be concerned?

Sodium lauryl sulfate and sodium laureth sulfates are typically used in most shampoos as a sudsing agent.  They can be very harsh to the skin and scalp, especially when used repeatedly over time.  Sulfates have also been found to strip hair color.  Sulfates can be found in most cleaning products including laundry detergent, shampoo and even floor-stripping products!

Parabens (methyl, propyl, butyl, and ethyl) are the most commonly used preservatives in personal care products; they inhibit microbial growth and extend product shelf life. Exposure to parabens has been linked to cancer.

Phthalates are commonly used in personal care products to enhance fragrances.  These hormonedisrupting chemicals are suspected of causing damage to the kidneys, liver, lungs and reproductive organs.  Unfortunately, manufacturers are not required to list phthalates on product labels, so they are difficult to avoid.

While research continues to emerge on the subject, POSTGAME is committed to keeping our products sulfate, paraben and phthalate free.  They believe, based on the research and development they completed, they can provide a superior product without the inclusion of these chemicals.

If you would like to conduct your own research on sulfates, parabens and phthalates, they found the following resources informative and helpful:


Shampoo

What is Postgame?

Postgame is salon quality Shampoo and Body Wash specially created for male athletes.  All Postgame products are sulfate, paraben and phthalate free with extra conditioner and lotion, and an appealing yet subtle sport-fresh scent.

Why should I buy Postgame over my regular shampoo?

Postgame products are free of the questionable sulfate, paraben and phthalate chemicals.  Products are also specially formulated with extra conditioner and lotion to keep skin, hair and scalp hydrated – especially valuable for athletes who take hot showers often!  Postgame also supports the active youth athlete in formula and message.

Body Wash

Why should I be concerned with sulfates?

Sulfates are an inexpensive means of making products like shampoo or body wash suds or foam.  Scientific research has found that sulfates contribute to:

  • Hair loss (by attacking the hair follicle)
  • Cataracts (by repeated penetration into the eyes)
  • Stripping moisture and oil from the skin causing skin and hair damage, including cracking and severe inflammation of the derma-epidermal tissue.
  • Scalp conditions similar to dandruff
  • Skin conditions like eczema, and general irritations.

Why should I be concerned with parabens?

Parabens are preservatives used to prevent microbial growth and extend a product's shelf life.  At this time, the FDA considers the amount of parabens used in cosmetics to be safe. However, many studies have directly linked parabens to:
3 In 1 Products
  • Disruption of normal hormone function
  • Cancer
  • Birth defects
  • Allergic reactions on the skin and/or scalp.

Why should I be concerned with phthalates?

Phthalates are industrial chemicals used as solvents in most HBC products.   They are used for their ability to cling to the skin and give the product a longer shelf life. Phthalates have been linked to birth defects and damage to the male reproductive system.  Scientific research has linked phthalates to:

  • Asthma/lung problems
  • Liver problems
  • Childhood obesity
  • Kidney problems

Will the elimination of sulfates, parabens, or phthalates have any effect on the cleansing experience?

No.  The removal of these chemicals will enhance your cleansing experience.  Your scalp, hair and skin may feel more hydrated, and you are lowering your risk of exposure to disease and ailments.  Since sulfates contribute to the lathering effect of shampoo, you may notice an absence of suds.  Simply foam the shampoo in your hands before application for a satisfying lather.

What makes Postgame different than other products?

POSTGAME products are simply about athletes.  Every competitive athlete, from rec leagues to professionals, should use only healthy products in and on their body.  Postgame products are salon quality without the potentially harmful chemicals, sulfate, paraben and phthalate.  Of equal importance, Postgame products feature a wholesome, positive and sports oriented message while promoting proper hygiene through a pure formula and subtle sport fresh scents.
