Why should you use one of Soapy Skin’s shampoo bars and ditch your super convenient bottled liquid shampoo?
Firstly our shampoo bars are 100% natural products and only contain the ingredients that are needed, and not the extra preservatives that liquid shampoos require to extend their shelf life. A very large proportion of over the counter shampoos are made up of water! Once water is added to make a liquid shampoo, it is almost impossible to keep it natural. That’s why we make solid shampoo bars, because the need to add chemical preservatives is removed.
Commercial shampoos are actually made from various detergents, synthetic materials, processed chemicals, cleansers and stabilisers that are harsh on your hair and scalp. These chemicals strip the hair of their natural protective oils and moisture leaving it susceptible to damage and in generally poor condition. Our Soapy Skin shampoo bars are made from 100% pure natural plant oils, which are easily absorbed and are nourishing to you hair, scalp and skin. Our shampoo bars don’t contain animal fat, no synthetic oils, no artificial fragrances, no detergents and no chemical preservatives. Our shampoo bars won’t strip the natural oils from your hair, but will leave it feeling soft and healthy.
Most commercial shampoos use harsh surfactants or foam boosters such as sodium lauryl sulphate (SLS). SLS is commonly used because it is cheap and a small amount generates a large amount of foam, also table salt is added to thicken the shampoo to give the illusion of a rich and expensive product. SLS was originally designed to clean floors and can be found in other products such as garage floor cleaners, engine degreasers and car wash shampoos. The strong degreasers in SLS dry skin, hair and irritate the scalp they may even damage the hair follicles. Our shampoo bars do not contain SLS or SLES or any other chemicals found in commercial shampoos, they only contain natural ingredients that clean and nourish your hair and scalp.
Soapy Skin shampoo bars are eco-friendly as well. We only use oils from sustainable sources, and all our shampoo bars are biodegradable with no harsh chemicals to contaminate our water supply. They are wrapped in recycled brown kraft paper to keep packaging down to a minimum, so there are no plastic bottles to pollute our environment.
