What makes Telford Clean?

Our ingredients!

What we put into Telford is just as important as what we leave out. We carefully choose and only include ingredients based on their functionality – think gentle, plant-based surfactants instead of sulphites and fermented radish root instead of formaldehyde or any of its many forms. There are never synthetic dyes that alter colour or microplastics that make shampoo shimmery. All Telford formulations are manufactured locally in Ontario. We proudly work with a boutique manufacturer that uses 100% green energy sourced from wind and low-impact water generation.

We use plant-based ingredients, such as aloe vera, shea and mango butter, coconut oil, green tea and turkey tail mushroom extracts.

A deeper look into our ingredients:

Leuconostoc/Radish Root Ferment Filtrate
This probiotic preservative is derived from radishes fermented with leuconostoc kimchi, the lactic-acid bacteria that’s used to make kimchi. It is our all-star. We use it in all of our products to effectively maintain freshness and as a much gentler, safer and more natural alternative to harsh preservatives like formaldehyde.

Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice
Skin-soothing aloe vera juice is a hydrating emollient loaded with anti-inflammatory benefits and it is used throughout our entire line.

Disodium Cocoamphodiacetate
This gentle, coconut-derived surfactant effectively cleanses without stripping natural oils. It is one of a few plant-derived surfactants that we use instead of SLS and other sulfates.

Pisum Sativum (Pea) Peptide
Rich in amino acids, pea peptides help hair maintain its moisture and pliability, while reducing breakage caused by brittle, dry hair. You’ll find pea peptides in both our shampoo and conditioner.

Amino Acid Blend
Dry, damaged hair is porous and while this can’t be remedied, it can be helped! Amino acids fill in the gaps in the hair cuticle (the outer layer of the hair shaft), which helps hair regain its hydrophobicity and strength. The amino acid blend in our conditioner contains the protein-building blocks of aspartic acid, glycine, alanine, serine, valine, proline and threonine.

Fruit and Flower Extracts
Our body wash has fruit and flower extracts of chamomile, cucumber, gingko biloba, olive leaf, rooibos and white and green tea leaf, all of which have anti-inflammatory benefits.
