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.

    Lots of Sebum

    nate.smith1988 (verified owner)

    I loved the way this product smells and that it comes in a tin, but it doesn’t work great for my hair. After application, it makes my scalp release all the sebum in the follicles which leads to my hair being super heavy and greasy feeling after washing.

    Not for my hair

    Rnestor (verified owner)

    Smells great and my hair looks clean but it feels dirty, greasy, and weighed down once it’s dry. I almost went back to bottled shampoo after this because I only wash my hair twice a week and it wouldn’t work with this particular bar. I’m going to try Hibar next because the reviews seem to be more consistently positive.

    Too greasy

    ellastephenstfs (verified owner)

    I have medium thick straight hair and this product was a little too greasy for me. I wanted to like this product so much because it is made with Apple Cider Vinegar and I have dandruff, but for me it left a residue on my hair.

    Smells Nice, Not for Me Though

    horse_lover13648 (verified owner)

    Despite having vinegar in the ingredients, I really couldn’t smell it at all. The scent is very apple and citrus, like an apple/orange dessert of some sort. I also like that it comes in a reusable metal tin. Unfortunately, that’s as far as the pros go for me. The formula clearly isn’t for my hair (thick, straight/wavy). It didn’t lather as much as I’d like and left my hair feeling really greasy. After a few uses, I couldn’t stand how gross my hair felt and I had to stop using it. I’ll keep the tin, but I guess I have to just throw the soap away, which is a huge waste.
