Nettle shampoo for oily hair with rosemary and orange scent
Gentle caring shampoo for oily hair based on soapnut extract and coconut oil surfactants. The organic quality nettle extract reduces sebum and dandruff production. The shampoo has an optimal pH factor, thus not damaging or drying the skin.
About this product, how does it work
Soap nuts have been used in India for body and hair care for thousands of years. Inspired by this tradition, we developed a maximally sensitive, non-toxic shampoo. Thanks to the optimal pH, the shampoo doesn’t damage the protective layers of skin.
Nettle leaves contain minerals, amino acids, vitamin C and carotenoids. The extract of this plant is therefore ideal for oily hair, as it reduces excessive sebum as well as the related dandruff production.
The shampoo has a pleasant refreshing scent of organic rosemary and orange essential oils. Unlike many conventional shampoos, our nettle shampoo doesn’t contain any oil derivatives, synthetic fragrances, dyes, sulphates (synthetic foaming agents) or irritating anionic surfactants and is stabilised only by gentle food preservatives.
In accordance with our Packaging evolution philosophy, we also offer big packages which can be used for refilling the glass bottle with a dispenser in order to minimise the use of packaging plastics.
How to use it
Rub the shampoo in wet hair until the foam has been produced. Let it work for a while and rinse with water properly.
It is quite normal for this shampoo not to produce a lot of foam as, unlike many conventional products, it doesn’t contain any synthetic foaming agents which might irritate your skin. The effectiveness remains the same.
This shampoo has a low pH level, which is beneficial for the hair and skin of the head. In an acidic environment, the hair surface closes which makes hair easy to comb. For this reason, our shampoos don’t have to be used together with a conditioner. It the type of your hair requires the use of a conditioner, we recommend using natural substances (e.g. apple vinegar, homemade herb extract).
Perhaps you wonder about...
Are soapnut detergents ecological and ethical?
Currently, we are not aware of any more abundant and ecological source of natural plant-based saponin than soap nut skin. The soap nuts grow on wild soapnut trees. They are not produced on huge plantations nor are they a burden on the local environmental system.
The soap nuts are harvested by local women, giving them not only possibilities to earn money, but also to gain independence. We are in regular touch with our suppliers. Our cooperation helps support sustainable development of the local region.
Our soap nuts are shipped to Europe by boats, not airplanes. We re-use the boxes they are packed in.
For our household products, we choose only those ingredients which present the lowest possible burden for our health and our planet and use revitalised water. Our products are not tested on animals. This product does not contain any oil derivatives, synthetic fragrances, dyes, sulphates (synthetic foaming agents) nor irritating anionic surfactants
