Botanical Shampoo Bar with Calendula - Bain & Savon
Vegan, handmade and all natural plastic-free shampoo bar
This luxurious shampoo bar contains botanical oils and its magic ingredient Sodium coco sulfate made from the fatty acids of coconut oil (it's a good palm-free alternative to sodium lauryl sulfate). This magic ingredient creates a rich foam and cleanses both hair and skin. Its thorough action dissolves dirt and grease effectively.
Bain & Savon have added wonderful botanical oils to add a touch of luxury to this shampoo bar. Calendula infused olive oil and petals to brighten up your hair and the beautiful essential oil of geranium. This is an excellent shampoo to illuminate blond hair.
This is a natural shampoo, hand made using the cold process soap method. It is free from preservatives and SLS, they only use natural ingredients, suitable for vegans, no animal testing, a healthy alternative to commercial shampoo.
Size: 60g bar
How to use: Solid shampoo bars are more concentrated that normal shampoos.
Lather the shampoo bar in your hands and apply the foam to your hair and wash as you would a liquid shampoo. Rinse and repeat concentrating on getting your whole head and scalp washed.
Alternatively, thoroughly wet hair and rub the bar over your scalp and down the hair shaft. Work it into a wonderful lather. You may find this is applying too much product for you and leaving the hair waxy even when through the transition phase (see below).
It is important to rinse well and remove any residue especially at the nape of the neck. You may need a cider vinegar rinse afterwards. It will rebalance the pH (soap is an alkaline and our skin is slightly acidic), help remove any residue and leave your hair shiny.
Please keep out of eyes. For external use only.
Transitioning to Shampoo Bars
When you first switch to natural shampoo bars, you may go through what is called a “transition phase”. During this time your hair may feel like it has a waxy residue on it.
There are three reasons this happens: 1) You may live in a hard water area. 2) Conventional shampoos and conditioners contain silicone to make your hair feel soft and look shiny. These products leave residues that natural products find hard to remove. 3) Conventional shampoos tend to remove your natural oils causing your scalp to react and over-produce oils to compensate. As natural shampoo bare are more gentle it may take time for your scalp to adjust to a new washing method.
It may take a few washes to get used to using a shampoo bar (more about transitioning to shampoo bars in our blog). A Cider Vinegar Rinse can help smooth the transition and keeps your hair and scalp healthy.
Please don’t use your shampoo bar once or twice and decide you don’t like it - everyone’s hair is different and it may take a little time for your hair to adjust. It takes time to rid your hair from all the residue left over from the chemicals in commercial shampoos. Give your hair time to adjust to the lack of chemicals and hair product build up. If you can stick it out and get through this period, you will realise just how much healthier your hair is. It will be soft and shiny in no time! 💚🌍
