Cruelty Free

Cruelty Free is a certification process through PETA that labels products that are not tested on animals. All companies that are included on PETA’s cruelty-free list have signed a statement verifying that they don’t use ingredients or create finished products that help conduct or pay for any tests on animals.

Paraben Free

Parabens are synthetic chemical preservatives, commonly used in beauty products like shampoo, lotion, and deodorants. Parabens can accumulate in your body, and have been linked to hormonal disruption and reproductive problems. In studies of breast cancer patients, parabens have been found in the tissue of cancerous tumors–yikes! If you want to avoid Parabens in your beauty products, keep an eye out for methylparaben, propylparaben, butylparaben, and ethylparaben in the ingredients list.

Sulfate Free

Sulfates are synthetic chemical ingredients commonly used in beauty products and household cleaners, like shampoos and dish soaps. You can usually identify sulfates in an ingredients list by looking out for the most common types: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLC) and Sodium Laureth Sulfates (SLES). These chemicals, often derived from petroleum, are used to help form the “lather” we’re used to seeing in our beauty and cleaning products. When used in the shower or sink, these chemicals can flow through the pipes and into our waterways. Synthetic sulfates have been linked to allergic reactions, eye and skin irritation, and hair loss, and some studies suggest they contain carcinogenic ingredients.

      Hi Amy! We love this shampoo bar (it smells great)! It works well for curly hair. Our curly hair-ed folks have also reported that the Moisturize HiBAR and the Plaine Products shampoo and conditioner work well, too!

      Hi Jodie! That is a great question. Shampoo bars are often at odds with hard water. However, the apple cider in this bar does wonders at removing mineral build-up! We would recommend following it with a heavy-duty conditioner, too. This one is quite hydrating and comes with a packet of seeds!

    Love this shampoo bar and the company that makes it

    earthfulenlightenment (verified owner)

    This shampoo bar, by Bestowed Essentials, is really great! I bought it for my daughter, who was having some really dry hair problems caused by an internal medical condition. It helped immediately and has lasted a long time. What’s best is that the bars are completely handmade by the members of this all female company. I love that! Love their handmade dish washing soap as well!

    I really like that this bar comes in a aluminum tin, no more shampoo bottles for me. It works way better than my old shampoo full of chemicals and it smell great. It also lasts longer, will be buying again once mine runs out.

    The best shampoo bar to date!

    allisonguggenheimer (verified owner)

    Ok so I have tried many shampoo bars over years trying to find the perfect one for my hair and scalp and this has been best one I have used yet. I continue to experiment with others, but the quality, price, and ingredients make this my favorite. I recommend it to all my friends trying to get into bar shampoo. The apple cider vinegar and citrus is the only one I’ve tried so far, but I’m excited to try the others. It cleans my hair but doesn’t strip it, it is easy to work into my hair and scalp, good on my curls, and it doesn’t cause my scalp to itch or have build up (a MAJOR issue I’ve had with other bars) . I can’t say enough good things about this brand. If you’re frustrated with bar shampoos give this one a try before you give up.

    I picked this bar to try over others because of the apple cider vinegar to hopefully help with some dandruff. So far it seems to be working excellently and my dandruff has completely cleared up. I like the smell too – no ACV scent thanks to the citrus. Disclaimer: I do have very very short hair so I can just rub the bar on my head and it lathers great and gets to my scalp, but I can’t speak to if it’d be as easy to get my results with longer hair.

    Works Well

    jrosehisey (verified owner)

    I picked this bar because of the ACV in it. I find that it cleans my scalp and helps with my dandruff. It takes a little elbow grease to get the bar to lather up, but that is a non-issue. The bar gets very soft so I put it on a dish and take it out of the shower when I’m not using it.

    Works fine and has a good smell that doesn’t linger. It doesn’t have a trace of that dreaded apple vinegar smell while still having some of its properties, leaving my hair soft but I haven’t noticed it help much with dandruff. As someone else noted, it’s difficult to lather with just your hands, so I just lightly stroke the bar on my head once or twice. On another note, the puck is a bit soft but not exactly soggy–hold with some caution.

    I was surprised to see that it wasn’t too much of a change from my normal shampoo! Please give it a try and save yourself from creating more plastic waste with traditional shampoo!

    This is a great soap. It smells great and the apple cidar vinegar helps my scalf. However it needs to be washed out vigourously because it can leave some residue in your hair otherwise

      Hi Emma! To help your shampoo bar last as long as possible, keeping it on a well draining soap dish and allowing it to air dry between uses is key! No need to pat down with a towel 🙂

      Admin Ellie Mersereau

      Great question, Amanda! Without the added water usually found in shampoo, these concentrated bars typically last longer than 3 bottles of regular shampoo. This of course depends on how many people are using the bar and how often one washes their hair.

    Left my hair soft

    Julie (verified owner)

    I couldn’t get it to lather in my hands so I rubbed the bar on my head. It then got a bit too sudsy. It left my hair soft but I have to wash it everyday with this. My hair gets too dirty after one day with this shampoo. It has a pleasant smell.
