These shampoo bars by Little Blue Hen are made with a very gentle but effective surfactant made of coconuts (sodium coco sulfate) which gives a beautiful fluffy lather that gently cleanses your hair and scalp without stripping away vital natural oils. For a beautiful shine and built in conditioner they have added organic babassu oil.
If you have struggled to find a shampoo bar that works just as well in hard water areas, or if you just havent found 'the one' yet, we really do encourage you to give these a try next time you are looking to stock up.
This Mitzi bar is like a zingy bar of sunshine. The combination of Lemon and May Chang essential oils just reminds us of sherbert lemon, decorated with lovely calming calendula petals.

Why we love them
*Sodium Coco-Sulfate is a gentle surfactant made from the oil of the whole coconut only. This means it is free from petroleum and palm derivatives. The molecules are larger than many of the earlier and cheaper surfactants such as sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate that are used in commercial toiletries. This means that sodium coco-sulfate molecules will not penetrate the upper layers of the skin and cause irritation which SLS & SLES are known to do. However everyone is different and a patch test may be helpful if you are very sensitive to surfactants or traditional soaps.
**Wild harvested babassu oil from the babassu palm trees in the Maranhão region of the Brazilian Rain Forest. It is sustainable in the way that it grows naturally in the forest and does not require mono culture or deforestation in order to grow it. This helps to support rainforest conservation and the livelihood of the indigenous people.
