Do you wash your hair with a "normal" shampoo? Or do you wash your hair with a shampoo bar? The shampoo bar is becoming increasingly popular, also known as a hair soap block or shampoo soap. The shampoo bar is just an excellent addition in a world where we are increasingly aware of consumption and sustainability. Did you know that with a shampoo bar, you contribute to a plastic-free future and save water? So wash your hair with zero waste and plastic-free!
What exactly are shampoo bars?
A shampoo bar or hair soap block is exactly the same as a regular shampoo. A shampoo bar has a solid shape instead of a liquid. In addition, liquid shampoo consists of 80% water. A shampoo bar consists mainly of natural ingredients. The basis of regular shampoo bars contains one or more of the following substances: sodium palm oil, shea butter, sodium lauryl sulfate, palm oil, olive oil, glycerin and water. Your shampoo bar will last 90 to 110 washes and will give you a bottle-free bathroom!
How did shampoo bars come about?
It is probably already clear that the shampoo bar is making a comeback. But how did it all start? Why is the shampoo bar back? In the past, for example, vegetable starch and wood ash were used to absorb excess oils in the hair and thus cleanse the hair. In the early 19th century, people also started using soap bars. These soap bars were made from palm fruits and coconut oil and were used for both hair and body.
In the 1930s and 1940s, with the emergence of liquid agents that scientists created to efficiently remove dirt, opportunistic cosmetic companies came up with the liquid shampoo idea. This was the beginning of a billion-dollar industry! As a result, the soap bar effect ebbed away for a while and everyone was captivated by the "magic" of liquid shampoo and other new cosmetics that shot up like mushrooms. Around 1988, soap bar pioneer Lush re-emerged with the renaissance of shampoo and soap bars. In recent years, you have also noticed that there are more and more movements that are committed to a plastic-free and more sustainable future. The HappySoaps brand is a good example of this.
