Q. Are your bars Vegan?
Q. How do I use a shampoo bar?
A. For best results we recommend rubbing the bar onto your wet hair. It's a nice firm bar so its easy-peasy to rub the bar on your firm scalp - for those with extra long hair, do the scalp first and then rub the bar down the length of the hair shaft. Massage in and rinse well. That's it.
Your hair will probably feel a little different the first time you use it. If you have been using regular shampoo/conditioner for a while you can have some product build up and you might feel that on the surface. Our shampoos contain essential oils and conditioners that should coat and smooth your hair.
Please let us know how you get on and ask for any advice ... we want our bars to be brilliant for everyone and are always aiming to improve.
Q. How long does a bar last?
A. Generally the rule of thumb is that shampoo bars last three times as long as a bottle of shampoo. Given that you don’t need a separate conditioner we hope you save six plastic bottles. Its a hard bar and will have a good lifespan.
Q. Why is my shampoo bar wet?
A. All of our shampoo bars contain a high level of glycerin. This leaves a very fine film on your hair. The purpose of the glycerin is to pull moisture into your hair. Sometimes it works so well that it actually pull moisture from the air onto the bar! This is called glycerin dew and is a natural reaction. To avoid this store bar in a dry environment. Please note this does not affect either the lifespan or quality of your bar! (It's real pretty though)
Q. Do I need a separate conditioner?

Q. Do your bars contain Sodium Laurel Sulphate?
A. NO - our bars contain Sodium Laureth Sulphate.
According to the campaign fro Safe Cosmetics: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) is actually the parent chemical that is modified to make Sodium Laureth Ether Sulfate (SLES). It’s created by reacting lauryl alcohol with petroleum or with coconut or palm oil. To derive SLES from SLS, a process called ethoxylation (in which ethylene oxide is introduced) has to take place. This process is key because it turns SLES into a safer, less harsh chemical than its predecessor.

Q. How much does each bar weigh?
A. All of our bars are handmade and hand-cut in small batches so weight can vary slightly from bar to bar. The average weight is 70g
