Organic wildcrafted soapnuts have been used historically to treat eczema, sensitive skin and problematic hair and scalps due to their mild anti-microbial and anti-bacterial properties.
Amla fortifies hair roots, adding shine, tackling premature greying of hair and inciting hair growth. It's rich fatty acid composition strengthens hair follicles and nourishes hair from the roots.
Shikakai is a potent source of vitamin C, as well as vitamins A, D, E and K, all of which are antioxidants required for rapid and healthy hair growth. Shikakai has a very low pH that stops hair getting stripped of essential oils, whilst also acting as a detangler.
Neem is renowned in Ayurveda for its potent disease-fighting properties as it is naturally anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral. It also encourages the growth of healthy, shiny hair, combats dry and itchy scalps, as well as scalp infections and dandruff.
Cade oil has an intense woodsy, smoky aroma. It has been deployed for centuries in treating inflamed scalp and skin issues such as psoriasis, dandruff and eczema, thanks to its anti-inflammatory, anti-fungal and anti-bacterial qualities.

Instructions for use: Comb or brush hair before shampooing to loosen residue, dry skin and dirt, especially if you use styling agents. Rub soap to generate a rich lather, or rub directly on hair. Pay particular attention to scalp and back of head when working lather into hair and be sure to generate a generous amount of lather. Like conventional foaming agents, soapnuts lather more on a second application as hair is cleaner; a second application may be necessary if living in a hard water area, if you have very long hair, or an oil-prone scalp. If you feel a residue on your hair after washing, you would benefit from using apple cider vinegar (ACV) as a clarifying rinse to ensure that all dirt and soap residue is removed. If you regularly use styling agents or have an oil-prone scalp, it can be helpful to use ACV as a rinse prior to washing hair. Dilute the ACV with two parts of water for every part of ACV. Keep the soap bar out of reach of running water when in use, and dry between uses to prolong its life.
Suitable for vegans.
