Knowledge is power!

Health <3

Welcome to my new weekly article Maven Monday, Thanks for stopping by, always appreciate Your company.

Lets start with the meaning of the word Maven, not a word commonly used in the English language today, I think its time for a revival. Maven is based on a Hebrew word that loosely means “one who understands, based on an accumulation of knowledge”. We are all Mavens in our own right about something; I happen to know a quite a bit about Sulfates…

My Shampoo makes me Sneeze.

Sulphite laden soap

most all pink soap has Sulphites!

That may seem like a strange statement to some but to those of us who have a Sulphite Sensitivity it can be a reality.

In my case, I would say that the Canadian Governments definition of ‘Sulphite Sensitivity’ is completely and wholly inaccurate. But hey I’m getting ahead of myself; You are likely thinking, “What the heck is a Sulphate, anyway?”

Sulphites are a class of preservatives that humans use in all kinds of products for many different purposes. For instance, Sulphites give your wine shelf life, make your shampoo bubble up, and help keep your sundried tomatoes from going moldy.
Not only are Sulphites used in many things for many purposes but this sneaky guy goes by many many many names. Sometimes I think Sulphites are out there trying to pull the wool over my eyes like some Fraudster using different alias’!

Here is a living list of the Alias’ that Sulphites use in Canada:

  • sulphites
  • sulfates
  • sulfiting or sulphiting agents
  • potassium bisulphite
  • potassium metabisulphite
  • sodium bisulphite
  • sodium dithionite
  • sodium metabisulphite
  • sodium sulphite
  • sulphur dioxide
  • sulphurous acid sulfites

Next Maven Monday… How to tell if you have a Sulphite Sensitivity!
