Safe for the environment
The majority of plastic water bottles sold in America ended up in landfills or in the ocean.
A single plastic bottle can take 450+ years to decompose, and shampoo bars drastically reduce this plastic bottle waste. Because they do not require plastic packaging, they are much better for the environment than their liquid shampoo counterparts. It is estimated that 299 million Americans use shampoo. This equates to about 1 billion shampoo bottles a year, which is approximately 115,000 plastic bottles being bought every hour with less than half being recycled.
Shampoo bars do not contain harsh surfactants like sulfates and chemicals like parabens. Harsh chemicals can damage the hair and strip away naturally moisturizing essential oils.Try to look in a good interior design magazine, do you see any plastic bottles anywhere? Absolutely not, you will never see one, as most designers and architects find them quite cheap and ugly. Shampoo bars help create a minimalist aesthetic in your shower/bathroom by reducing the cluttered look of bottles and their unattractive design. A shampoo bar in a beautiful wooden soap dish will make your bathroom look elegant and modern.
They are much more natural
Many traditional bottle shampoos are filled with preservatives and chemicals that strip hair of its natural oils and leave the scalp dry. Shampoo bars contain many more natural ingredients that are good for hair, such as natural oils, vitamins, and minerals. That is why on their packaging, you will see sustainable ingredients like sunflower oil, lavender oil, olive oil, argan oil, or coconut oil, which give your hair vitality and moisture. Just make the test! Pick up any traditional shampoo and insert the long list of ingredients into the Environmental Working Group database.
They smell great
Thanks to natural essential oils, your hair will never smell better once they meet a shampoo bar. Instead of using a synthetic fragrance, shampoo bars use natural essential oils that are good for hair and scalp and give your hair a wonderful and refreshing scent.
They save space
Shampoo bars are great for saving space. Being much smaller and more lightweight than their bottled counterparts relative to the number of washings you can get from the same amount of product, shampoo bars will save space. This comes in handy in various situations, from keeping your bathroom cabinets decluttered to packing for an upcoming camping trip.
Promotes Healthy Hair
Shampoo bars are packed with essential oils and other fresh/natural ingredients. In addition to relieving a dry and itchy scalp, these natural ingredients promote hair growth, create volume, increase blood circulation, and promote hair follicles’ health. Great shampoo bars leave hair feeling lightweight, clean, and full of volume.
