Sante's Shampoo gently and thoroughly cleans the scalp and hair with selected surfactants of plant origin.
Manufacturing personal care products without synthetic preservatives requires especially careful handling of both raw materials and finished products, as the slightest contamination can ruin an entire production run. Sante utilizes GMP (Good Manufacturing Practice), the pharmaceutical industry's production standard, to guide their manufacturing processes.
Sante also continuously improves their product quality to keep current with advances in manufacturing and ingredient standards. However, no advance in product quality comes at the cost of Sante's steadfast commitment to environmental responsibility. Sante's foremost goal is to make quality personal care products with minimal impact on the planet and its resources.
Sante's raw materials are of the highest quality and, whenever possible, of certified organic origin. In addition, nearly all Sante products are certified by BDHI and NaTrue, two independent certification standards that award their seal to products that comply with the strictest natural standards.
Chamomile from Egypt, rosemary from France, linden blossom from Croatia, horsetail from Portugal - Sante's Research & Development team analyzes plants from all over the world to determine the best resources for their products.
And, because production methods play an equally important role in the quality of a plant extract, Sante produces many of their own extracts. By utilizing a mixture of bio-ethanol, water and glycerin (standard extracts are usually made using only ethanol and water) Sante slowly and gently releases the active plant ingredients. The addition of glycerin and their six to eight hour extraction process allows Sante to capture more of the active plant ingredients than with a standard ethanol and water mixture.
With few exceptions, the plants Sante sources for their extracts are certified organic. And, most of Sante's plant extracts are from classic medicinal plants, making them extremely effective.
