Natural Shampoo Bar

$17.00

For all hair types.

A luxurious dense lathering soap with loads of hair loving essential oils, this bar is a real natural treat for your skin, scalp and hair. You can use it on your face and body too, so it’s a great all-in-one travel/camping kit!

This is a special recipe with kukui nut oil, jojoba and loads of Shea butter alongside the usual coconut, olive and avocado. It’s super smooth and your hair will love it. ⠀

If you are thinking of changing to a natural solid shampoo bar, be aware that your hair will need to go through a transition back to its natural state which can cause a few bad hair days.  Commercial shampoos are laden with silicones and other chemicals that coat the hairs on your head and these can take a while to wash/wear away.

Personally, I find that I don’t need to use conditioner now that I have ditched the bottled shampoo. I like to do a vinegar rinse every couple of weeks, which leaves my hair lovely and soft and shiny. I use 2 Tbsp vinegar (white wine or apple cider) in 1L warm water and rinse through after shampooing.

TAKING CARE OF YOUR HANDMADE SOAP: handmade soap needs a little more care than its chemical-laden counterparts. As it is full of all the natural oils, it needs to be well drained when using. The less of the soap touching a flat, wet surface – the better, so choose a good soap dish.
When you are storing your soap (before using), put somewhere dry. Don’t store in a damp bathroom. Many of my customers enjoy storing their soap in their clothes draws, using them to infuse their lovely scents into their clothes. Or cut a slice off and hang in a muslin bag in your car, the scent will last for ages and you will always have an emergency bar of soap if needed on the road!

Cold Pressed soap is different from what you will find in your local supermarket if you look after these well we know you will fall in love! The smell alone is devine and make a great air freshener or addition to your bathroom or clothes draw!

Cold process soap making is a scientific process of combining oils with an alkali substance (lye) which results in a chemical reaction called saponification. Once saponification is complete, there is neither oil nor lye remaining in the soap. To produce a nice moisturising bar Fair and Square add a ‘superfat’ value of 7-8% which refers to the extra oils which aren’t bound up in the saponification process. These oils provide the moisturising effect that you don’t get with commercially made soap bars.

After making the soaps, they sit and cure for at least six weeks to ensure a nice, hard, long-lasting bar with a rich lather.

They are all handmade in small batches, and hand cut, hand bevelled and hand packaged so each bar will vary slightly in size, shape and appearance to the photo, but all are full of the same skin loving ingredients!

Ingredients: saponified oils of; coconut, olive, shea butter, cocoa butter, castor, almond, jojoba, kukui nut; Northland rain water; annatto seed infusion; therapeutic grade essential oils of; lavender, lemon, rosemary & peppermint.

Description

Small batch hand-crafted artisan soap. Made with love using all natural ingredients. Tutukaka Coast, Northland, NZ

Fair Square Soapery was born out of a desire to create high quality, luxury products for everyday use.  I have always been intrigued with how our ancestors lived wholesome, simple and often very healthy lives, and take real pride in creating a product that has been in manufacture since the beginning of human civilisation. A lot has changed in the last few thousand years of technological progression, but soap has always been a main stay in the course of the human life.

The traditional technique of cold process soap making is both a science and an art and I love the challenge that this brings to every small batch I make. I am passionate about creating a product with natural ingredients because nature has such an abundance of stunning products to offer. And of course, by refraining from the chemicals and synthetic fragrances you can be sure that it is good for your body and the environment.

I am a mother to two young children, wife to a wonderful husband and carer and friend to a host of animals on our small lifestyle block on the eastern coast of Northland, New Zealand. I make my soaps from the kitchen of our small home with the dream of one day having a beautiful purpose built studio.

It is my dream to one day be able to make a living doing something that makes my customers and myself very happy. To everyone who has supported me over the years; I can’t express enough gratitude that you have helped path the way for this to become a reality, so THANK YOU!
