Soap & Shampoo Bars
All of our 100% natural bar soaps are handmade in small batches with lots of shea butter, scented with pure essential oils and extracts, and free of palm oil. Gentle enough for faces, cleansing enough for hardworking hands and dirty hair. No detergents, SLS, SLES, triclosan, parabens, pthalates, synthetic fragrances, or dyes. Packaging is 100% biodegradable including outer film wrapping.
Try any of our bars as shampoo bars: wet hair, rub the bar directly on your hair from roots to ends, or create lather in your hands and apply to hair. Work lather through hair and scalp, rinse. Follow with a diluted vinegar rinse to restore your hair's pH: add approximately 1 tablespoon apple cider vinegar to 1 cup water. For longer hair that tangles easily, use up to 4 tablespoons apple cider vinegar to 1 cup water and dip the ends of your hair right into the vinegar solution. Rinse well after applying vinegar solution.
Net weight 2.8 oz (79g). Please note that our cold process soap will become harder and milder with age, and is also safe and gentle to use now. For a longer lasting bar, store on a draining soap dish or hang in a soap saver bag out of the shower's direct spray.
Pairs beautifully with a solid lotion bar and body scrub for a thoughtful custom gift.
Also available bare: No wrapping, no label, just the soap.
