The Problem With Bottled Shampoo

By now I am sure you have seen shampoo and conditioner bars as an alternative to the traditional liquid shampoo. But, what is the problem with bottled shampoo? Unfortunately, bottled shampoo can be quite detrimental to your hair, your health, your wallet, and the planet. Don't believe me? Keep reading to find out why you should make the switch.

The problem with bottled shampoo

1. Harmful Chemicals 

We encourage all Earthlings to read labels and to be conscious of what they are putting in and on their bodies. There are many ingredients in personal care products such as SLS, parabens, phthalates, and formaldehyde releasers that can have lasting effects on your hair, health, and planet. 

Skip the hassle of researching hundreds of ingredients and try out our shampoo and conditioner bars that are jam-packed with botanical goodness!

2. Plastic Packaging 

Did you know that less than half of Americans consistently recycle bathroom products such as shampoo bottles? And for those that do, only 9% of plastic ever created has actually been recycled. The rest of that plastic is sitting in our landfills and littering our oceans. Yikes!

Take the environmental stress out of your bathroom routine and opt for plastic-free shampoo and conditioner bars instead!

3. Wasted Money 

When purchasing liquid shampoos, you are essentially paying to wash your hair with water. That’s because 80-90% of traditional liquid shampoos is water. How ridiculous is that?!

Our shampoo and conditioner bars do not look like your average hair care routine and that's because they aren't. They are compact, nutrient dense bars filled with nourishing and moisturizing ingredients, with no room for excess water.

4. Larger Footprint 

Considering the added water, weight, and waste that comes with bottled shampoo, switching to shampoo and conditioner bars is a great way to reduce your environmental impact and overall footprint. The average shampoo bottle weighs over 5X more than our shampoo bar and wracks up quite a large water and carbon footprint. Transporting products without added water or packaging is much more energy efficient and earth friendly. 

Shampoo and conditioner bars are lighter, more compact, and carbon conserving. Not to mention, they are easier for you to travel with as well! Our bars are TSA friendly, and keep you from worrying about spills or liquid limits. You really can't go wrong!
