Gently cleanse your dry or damaged hair with our nourishing sea buckthorn and orange shampoo bar.
Made to gently cleanse your hair, our Sea Buckthorn & Orange shampoo bar is suitable for dry or damaged hair types. With luxurious coconut milk, soothing oats and nourishing sea buckthorn oil, this shampoo bar will help revitalise dry and damaged hair while gently cleansing.
We have added a fruity blend of orange, lemongrass and palmarosa essential oils to this shampoo bar, so it has a cheerful fragrance to match its sunny colour. We would recommend you follow your shampoo with our matching conditioner bar for extra nourishment.
Sea Buckthorn & Orange Shampoo Bar is VEGAN friendly.
Minimum weight 75g in an aluminium tin (or refill style wax paper bag). Please reuse or recycle your tin.
How to use your shampoo bar:
You have a couple of options of applying the shampoo, experiment to see what works best for you. You can either apply the bar directly to your wet hair, concentrating on the scalp. Alternatively, rub the bar in your wet hands to produce the shampoo and apply this to your hair with your hands. Use your fingers to massage the shampoo into your hair and produce the bubbles, a little goes a long way so if it’s not as bubbly as you’d like, try adding more water before adding more shampoo. Rinse hair thoroughly, follow with a conditioner.
The shampoo is a concentrated product, so you may be surprised how little you need to apply. It might take a couple of washes to get the hang of how much to use. There shouldn’t be any kind of transition period and you definitely don’t need to follow with a vinegar rinse!
Please allow your shampoo bar to dry between uses, to make sure it lasts as long as possible. Do not store in the tin unless completely dry. Leaving the bar in a puddle of water will make it dissolve and disappear quickly. We recommend using a wire shower shelf to allow the air to circulate around your bars between uses.
Top tip: If you find the ends of your hair are prone to dryness, (especially if you have long hair), only apply the shampoo to your scalp and allow it to run through the rest of your hair as you are rinsing it out.
Some of the ingredients we have chosen include:
Sodium Cocyl Isethionate is a very gentle surfactant (cleanser) that is derived from coconuts and is therefore palm oil free. SCI produces great lather, is very mild and has a soft and silky feel in use.
Coconut Milk has moisturising effects on hair due to its fatty acid profile. These fatty acids can restore dry hair and condition damaged hair. It can also promote hair growth.
Panthenol, also known as pro-vitamin B5, is a strengthening and moisturising conditioner for the hair. It acts as a humectant, absorbing moisture from the air and penetrates deep into the hair shaft, improving resistance to mechanical stress. It also has anti-inflammatory properties which make it soothing for sensitive or irritated skin.
Sea Buckthorn Oil has high levels of essential fatty acids, Vitamins E and A which makes it a super nourishing oil that can help support scalp health. The high levels of Vitamin E can help with scalp circulation and supports hair conditioning and growth.
Benzyl Alcohol, Salicylic Acid, Glycerin, Sorbic Acid is a naturally derived broad spectrum preservative blend that has ECOCERT and COSMOS status (meaning it is certified as natural / organic). We think it’s really important to include a preservative in all our shampoo and conditioner bars as they are designed to get wet and could easily grow bacteria and mould in your shower.
