The key ingredients in our Lemon Sage Moisturizing Shampoo Bars include:
Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI) is a naturally derived surfactant made from coconut oil. It is safe and non-toxic and is one of the mildest cleansers available. It is frequently found in baby products because it is extremely gentle on sensitive, delicate skin and hair. SCI acts as a foaming and cleansing ingredient, and leaves your hair feeling soft and silky.
Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate (SLSA), not to be confused with Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS), is derived from coconut and palm oil and is safe, skin friendly cleanser that provides a high quality lather which gently and effectively removes surface oil, dirt and bacteria, without stripping or drying out your hair.
BTMS-25 (Behentrimonium Methosulfate and Cetearyl Alcohol) is a plant based emulsifier and conditioning agent. It is derived from rapeseed and coconut oils.
Cetyl Alcohol is made up of fatty acids derived from coconut oil and provides softening and hydrating properties to your hair and acts as a thickener.
Panthenol (Provitamin B5) protects hair from styling and environmental damage by locking in moisture and improving its strength and structure. It also adds volume, shine, and luster.
Hydrolyzed Oat Protein is a liquid cosmetic ingredient made from oat protein that has been modified to be water-soluble. It contains two types of proteins - globulins and avenin, both of which are not found in any other grain. Hair products that contain hydrolyzed oats are known to make your hair shiny, reduce breakage, soften and smooth, and repair and protect your hair from damage. Hydrolyzed oat flour protein also forms a coating on the outside layers of hair strands, which can make it look and feel thicker.
Vegetable Glycerin is derived from plant oils (like Shea Butter or Coconut Oil). Glycerin is a humectant, meaning it can actually pull in moisture from the air, keeping hair hydrated and healthy.
Citric Acid is derived from lemons. In addition to naturally lowering the pH in shampoos and conditioners, it also helps remove buildup from your hair and adds shine. The esters formed from Citric Acid create a thin protective coating over the surface of your hair which prevents the loss of moisture from the strands making it look glossy and hydrated.
Calendula Powder is often used to hydrate the scalp, remove dandruff, and treat various conditions. With its regenerative properties it helps the hair follicles grow abundantly allowing for a thicker mane, and the antioxidants help protect the hair and scalp against cell-damaging free radicals.
Chamomile Powder contains antioxidants that act as a natural exfoliator, removing dead skin cells and product build-up that has collected on the scalp. In turn, this reduces itchiness, dryness, and bacteria that thrive on the scalp, significantly reducing common scalp complaints such as dandruff.
Gingseng Extract is believed to increase the growth of dermal cells on the scalp which, in turn, strengthens the follicles and roots of the hair. Additionally, the chemical compound ginsenoside found in ginseng helps to nourish the roots, encourage new hair growth, and lessen thinning hair and breakage.
Our Lemon Sage Moisturizing Shampoo Bars are a surfactant based (non-soap) shampoo that are pH balanced and great for regular use. Designed for for all types of hair and people who suffer from dry and damaged hair, they are a gentle, all-natural, environmentally-friendly alternative to chemical-laden liquid shampoos.
Safe for bleached and color treated hair, these bars contain a blend of plant based surfactants, conditioners, and moisturizers, vegetable oils, vitamins, minerals, antioxidants, botanical extracts, and essential oils. These ingredients will gently cleanse your hair and scalp, repair and strengthen it, promote new growth, enhance body, seal in moisture, and make your hair feel soft, silky, and manageable.
Additionally, the antibacterial and antifungal properties of clary sage essential oil along with calendula and chamomile help soothe dry itchy scalp, prevent dandruff, and get rid of excess oil and buildup, without stripping your hair of its natural sebum. Lemon and may chang essential oils provide a nice, fresh citrus smell, and along with ginseng gently cleanse and add shine to dull hair, while increasing blood circulation in the scalp, and helping detangle curly hair.
