Benefits of organic shampoo
Our organic shampoo is paraben free and is 100% vegan and cruelty free. Our organic SLES and SLS free shampoo is very easy to use. All you need to do is add fragrance!
Our shampoo is sulphate free and suitable for all hair types including oily hair, fine hair and dry hair.
The base contains gentle surfactants to help provide a creamy lather. It nourishes the hair, leaving it looking healthy and smooth.
Is organic shampoo natural?
In our opinion, there is no such a thing as 100% natural shampoos. All shampoos are a combination of natural and unnatural ingredients.
Organic shampoo is the best natural shampoo alternative compared to conventional shampoos. Conventional shampoos can contain harmful chemicals that can irritate sensitive scalps.
It is enriched with aloe vera which can nourish the hair and scalp. Aloe vera contains natural minerals and vitamins A, C and E that are great for hair health.
Our organic shampoo contains natural ingredients like decyl glucoside and lauryl glucoside. The ingredients are gentle and derived from natural resources.
It also contains Xanthan Gum which is a naturally derived ingredient. Xanthan Gum is from the sugar of wheat, corn, soy or dairy. This is then fermented by a bacteria called Xanthomonas campestris.
The rest of the base contains ingredients that are not considered natural. It contains the preservatives Potassium Sorbate and Sodium Benzoate.
However, these ingredients are necessary to make sure that bacteria doesn't start living in your shampoo. These preservatives are gentle and don't cause dry or damaged hair.
Citric acid is also used in the ingredients to regulate the pH levels. This makes sure the shampoo is not too harsh for the hair and skin.
Shampoos need to contain some unnatural ingredients like preservatives and pH regulators. In our opinion, there is no 100% natural shampoo but our shampoo is the best alternative.
Our organic shampoo is great for the hair's natural oils. It doesn't contain any ingredients that could cause dry scalps or dry hair.
How to use natural shampoo base
Our natural shampoo is very easy to use. Weigh out your desired amount of shampoo and add any fragrance of your choice. We recommend adding up to 1% of essential oils or fragrances to the base.
Mix the ingredients together until combined for approximately 10 - 15 minutes. Now you can add your unique shampoo to your own bottles and packaging!
Organic natural shampoo vs conventional shampoos
Many popular shampoos like Head and Shoulders, Pantene and Dove use ingredients like SLS or SLES. These can dry hair, leading to breakage and can cause an itchy scalp.
Cocamidopropyl Betaine is a very popular cleansing ingredient in shampoos, conditioners and soaps. Yet, it can be irritating and can cause allergic reactions to skin for some.
Another surfactant used in mainstream shampoo and conditioner products is TEA-Dodecylbenzenesulfonate. This ingredient can strip colour from natural and coloured hair and can be very drying.
Our natural and organic shampoo contains Decyl Glucoside and Lauryl Glucoside. These are very gentle surfactants, beneficial for any hair type including frizzy hair.
Is a natural and organic shampoo good for your hair?
Our natural shampoo is suitable for any hair type and contains nourishing natural ingredients.
This shampoo is SLS free, meaning it does not contain sodium lauryl sulphate. This is often added as a cleansing and foaming agent. But, this ingredient can cause an itchy scalp and irritation for sensitive skin.
