Over nine million shampoo bars have sold worldwide since 2010. They smell great and help us curb our plastics. Here are 8 reasons why embracing solid shampoo bars pay off.
1. Wave bye to plastic
Our personal favourite reason to switch: they eradicate plastics. On average, we consume 10 bottles of shampoo a year - contributing to the 300 million tons produced each year.
Our bars arrive packaging-free. Their ingredients printed on free wildflower seed cards. Once you’re finished with it, pop your card into moist soil and frequently water. It will grow into a delightful mixture of wildflowers. These cares are 100% natural and printed using vegetable inks, leaving no harmful chemicals in the ground. So far, our customers have helped save over 6,000 bottles from ending up in landfill. Can you help us double this by the end of 2020?
2. Enjoy all-natural
Our Lemon shampoo bars contain 100% natural ingredients only. There are no artificial fragrances (which can trigger skin irritation and cause allergies). There are no chemicals like formaldehyde, propylene glycol, and sodium hydroxide - which are known to damage hair over prolonged use. Instead, our include cedarwood essential oils, which are praised for balancing the oil-producing glands in the scalp. This means hair growth promotion and reduction in hair loss. Cedarwood also has antifungal and antibacterial properties, which can treat different conditions that contribute to dandruff and hair loss.
3. Better for the planet
The carbon footprint of making a solid shampoo bar is 25% lower than liquid shampoo and requires 5 times less energy. You save water too. An average bottle of shampoo is made up of 80% water. Conditioner is even higher – about 95%. So basically, you’re paying for a big plastic bottle of water. Our bars are concentrated and typically last a family around 3 months (individual 6 months) - saving 5L of water per bar. Our bars are also fully biodegradable and don’t contain any nasty chemicals. So when you’re rinsing off your shampoo down the plughole, it can’t harm marine life or contamination waterways.
4. Better value for money
Shampoo bars last much longer than commercial liquid bottled shampoo. A bar gives you up to 80 washes - three times more than an average 200ml bottle of shampoo. That also means three less plastic bottles ending up in the landfill.
You also get 100% access from a bar. Due to the funnel shape of bottles and their liquid sticking to the sides, bottled shampoo never gives you 100% access to the product. This means a loss of product and money.
Our shampoo bars contain nourishing ingredients including coconut, olive and sweet almond oil. This could result in you also ditching the conditioner - saving yourself even more money!
5. Super easy to use
Wave goodbye to slimy bottles or difficult-to-open tabs. Simply lather up our bar in your hands and apply these bubbles to your hair. Store them in a soap dish, pouch or tin after use.
6. Fantastic for kids
Made entirely from natural plant ingredients, our bars are gentle on children’s scalps and skin. The bars are thick and chunky for children to hold. There are no running liquids dripping into their eyes.
7. Help restore your hair back to basics
Shampoo bars are praised for restoring hair back to its original, shiny, voluminous state. They clear away residues left from the chemicals used in synthetic cleaners. They never strip your hair and deposit a protective wax, leaving hair stronger, healthier and fuller. Our bars are loaded with plant magic including lemon peel powder - which is high in Vitamin C and calcium- helping to promote a healthy scalp. Help restore your hair back to basics

8. Great for travelling
When it comes to travelling, shampoo bars are your best buds. You don’t need to worry about liquids exploding and leaking over your luggage. You also don’t have to worry about shampoo bars being declared in a liquids bag as they’re TSA approved as solids.
