The main ingredient in Shikai Shampoos is shikakai extract, which has been used for thousands of years in the Far East. Neither a soap nor a detergent, shikakai extract helps to gently cleanse the hair without stripping it of its natural oils or pH balance.
Dr. Dennis T. Sepp, an organic chemist with an interest in natural products and Dr. Vasant Telang, a pharmaceutical chemist with knowledge of ayurvedic medicines, were interested in exploring the exceptional properties of several natural plants which are utilized in the care of skin and hair. They quickly honed in on the lathering and the low pH cleansing properties of shikakai and its effectiveness as a truly natural shampoo. They developed an extract based on this plant and called it shikai. This soap and detergent-free extract became the basis for the first line of shampoos and the name of a new company.
