Make Your Own Naturally Balanced Shampoo Bars

Do you want to learn how to make shampoo bars for your family, friends or business, but don’t know where to start?  Do you want to make or use products that have minimum to no waste and are sustainable for the environment?

Look no further, I have teamed up with Lise of LisaLise Natural Skincare to create an affordable, easy to follow  86 page guide, with 13 formulas  to help  make visually appealing and effective shampoo bars that are perfectly balanced for your hair and scalp!

WHY YOU NEED TO START USING SHAMPOO BARS

Shampoo bars have become  popular as people have become conscious of the plastic packaging they use everyday, and the negative impact it is having on the our ecosystems.  Shampoo bars can be made, used or sold as they are, without the need for additional packaging, making them a truly sustainable option .

What’s more, one shampoo puck can give you 80-100 washes which is equivalent to approximately 3-4 bottles of shampoo. This means, they are not only good for the environment, but they are also economical to use.

WHAT’S SO SPECIAL?

There are plenty of shampoo bar recipes on-line and you might wonder, “What is so special about these?”.

Good question! The DIY market offers many different types of shampoo bars but either they are made with non-plant derived synthetic ingredients, not accepted by the natural or organic market or they are made the traditional cold processed soap way that has a pH not ideal for keeping hair healthy. There are few formulas made with natural ingredients, that are perfectly balanced for hair and scalp.

This is where we come in.  Within our 86 page guide to making your own naturally balanced shampoo bars, you will get information on plant derived surfactants, bio- extracts, essential oils, co2 extracts, botanicals, vegetal oils and more.  You will also get  tips and tricks, advice on substitutions, as well as creative suggestions.  You will know exactly what to expect when you make your shampoo bar and how to adapt it to your own needs.

Something for you…

Make Your Own Naturally Balanced Shampoo Bars contains 13 unique and specially developed shampoo bar formulas that are suitable for different hair and skin types. You could choose a naturally designed Scalp Stimulating Shampoo Bar, perhaps a floral conditioning one like Five Flowers Shampoo Bar?  Maybe you have sensitive skin?  There is one for you too!
