We have searched long and hard for a substitute for plastic shampoo and conditioners and have finally found the right fit for us. HappySoaps produce handmade bars in the Netherlands. Their bars are vegan, gluten free, cruelty free, palm oil free, SLS/SLES free and plastic-free. We are listing our top reasons for making this switch in the hope that you too can help make a difference to the environment.
HappySoaps Bars are 100% Plastic Free
This is by far the top reason for us to make the switch between plastic bottles to solid bars. Each bar is equivalent to 4 plastic bottles. So 1 Shampoo bar together with 1 Conditioner Bar would save on 8 plastic bottles!
Our sea currently contains more than 5.25 trillion pieces of plastic. 80% of the plastic waste in the sea comes from the mainland. It ends up in the sea via the wind, sewers, canals and rivers. If everyone made this change there would be tons less plastic in our environment, ultimately helping the future of our species and all species on earth.
Shampoo and Conditioner Bars are good for your Hair
Just because they are not in plastic and commercial form, does not mean that they don’t do the job well. The Shampoo bars contain some of the best ingredients which target different hair types. There are bars for normal hair, oily, dandruff, dry, damaged and bleached hair. They smell amazing too and there is one for every mood 🙂
Shampoo and Conditioner Bars are Concentrated
Shampoo and Conditioner Bars might look small but they last long! This is because, unlike store bought shampoo bottles, they don’t contain water. It’s easy to overuse liquid form shampoo but not so easy to overuse your shampoo bar (we recommend rubbing it directly onto your hair for better effect).
Nonetheless, it’s essential for you to take good care of your bars. Keeping them in a dry place and on a soap tray is ideal. Don’t don’t let them soak in water as you will waste a lot of product.
Shampoo and Conditioner Bars are great for Travelling
You definitely won’t have to worry about carrying extra liquids in your hand luggage! The bars are also compact and they don’t spill. You will also avoid using the small bottles which are provided by the hotel or guesthouse and so once again reducing the use of plastic!
The Bars are all Vegan
Our Shampoo and Conditioner bars contain lots of natural ingredients such as Olive oil, Shea butter and Quinoa to keep hair shiny and in optimal health. No animal by-products are used and they are 100% cruelty free.
We hope this list gives you a good idea of the benefits that come from switching over to solid shampoo and conditioner bars! We look forward to receiving your feedback 💗
