Where are your products manufactured?
We manufacture our products in house in Vernon, BC. Our recycled containers are all manufactured locally as well. Some lifestyle products like the re-usable cotton swab are manufactured overseas.
I've used shampoo bars before and they didn't work for me, how are yours different?
It's likely you were using a cold pressed soap bar. You can tell by the ingredients. if they say something like "saponified olive oil" or "sodium olivate" you have a cold pressed soap. Cold pressed soap is GREAT for the body and for laundry. It is made by mixing a fat (like olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter etc) with water and lye. This results in a product that's really high in PH and can also leave a scummy build up in the hair. You need to look for a shampoo bar that uses a mild surfactant for it to be effective.
Dry hair tip: after towel drying your hair, lightly brush the conditioner over your ends for extra detangling and moisture.
Oily hair tip: shampoo twice! especially if you use product.
Are all surfactants the same?
No! There are some great ones and some not so great ones. Watch out for SLS and sulphates. There are even ingredients out there that hides SLS. Sodium Coco Sulphate is an example. I am not as good as explaining it as these folks, so check out this article here if you want to learn more:
Do your products work for color treated hair?
Absolutely! Our products don't contain any harsh sulphates that damage coloured hair.
Do your products work on extensions?
Absolutely! We don't have any harsh surfactants that degrade glues or extensions. Our cold-pressed soap free formula won't cause build up.
How long do your shampoo and conditioner bars last?
50+ washes depending on how long your hair is and how well you store them.
- let drain and dry on a soap dish after each use
- don't store in the shower, the humidity can cause the bars to erode or get softer quicker
- store in open air and not the travel cases to maximize curing
- stack the bits of the ends of bars together to get a bonus bar!
