Shampoo bars (plastic free) - made in the UK

£4.00

Product

If you haven't tried a shampoo bar before, it's a great way of using shampoo without having plastic packaging.  They are also excellent for taking on short breaks because that are hard bars (therefore not an issue for going through security gates) and lightweight. 

If you have tried the usual shampoo bars that are available, I recommend trying these out.  

I had been using the Lush shampoo bars for about 15 months and was still having to wash my hair daily because of oiliness at the front of my head.  At the end of March 2019, I started using the shampoo bar for oily hair and for the first time ever, have been able to move to only washing my hair every other day.   Fifty days later, I don't think I have even used half of the bar up yet - it lasts.

As if that weren't enough, these are made in Cumbria by the wonderful Maria.  She also makes the lip balmhand salve and wool wash I use and sell. 

After use, the shampoo bar should be dried or left in a soap dish.  

 

What Maria has to say about her shampoo bars

Handmade shampoo bars made with pasteurised Jersey milk and organic apple cider vinegar. These are very mild so won’t cause itchy scalp and will leave your hair feeling really clean and soft. We use Jersey milk for nourishment and the organic cider vinegar acts as a gentle rinse and should leave your hair tangle-free without the need for conditioner. Each bar is around 28g, 5cm diameter and should last around a month. We also have a plain white, un-fragranced bar that is suitable for babies.

Ingredients are listed and explained below. They sound scary but I can assure you these are very gentle ingredients and won’t strip your hair like ordinary shampoo!  See 'Scent & ingredients' for specific ingredients in each bar type.

MAIN INGREDIENTS: Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate, Acetic Acid, Lac, Pantothenic Acid, Hydrolyzed Corn Protein & Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein & Hydrolyzed Soy Protein, Phenoxyethanol, Propylene glycol.

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is made from the natural fatty acids which occur in coconut oil and is a very mild surfactant. Acetic Acid is apple cider vinegar. Lac is milk and we use pasteurised Jersey milk (not our own milk as we don’t have a pasteuriser). Pantothenic Acid is Vitamin Pro B5 (D-Panthenol). Plant keratin is Hydrolyzed Corn Protein & Hydrolyzed Wheat Protein & Hydrolyzed Soy Protein. The bars need a preservative and we use the broad spectrum Iscagurad (Phenoxyethanol, Propylene glycol).

Postage and Packaging

The P&P costs applied are very transparent.  No additional costs are added on, you simply pay for the cost of packaging and the cost of postage.  

I don't offer free P&P because what that usually means is that the cost of P&P has been added to the cost of goods.  I think it is better to assume that my customers aren't daft and would rather have transparent P&P costs than the pretence of 'Free P&P' with potentially inflated prices on the items that they are buying.
