About the ingredients

We know some of these ingredients are unfamiliar and unpronounceable so here's a quick summary of what they are and what they do.

SCI (sodium cocoyl isethionate) - a coconut oil-based surfactant. It is very mild on skin, hair and eyes and has a silky skin feel. SCI makes a great lather and is good for making liquid shampoos and solid shampoo bars.

Cetearyl alcohol - a cosmetic wax used as a co-emulsifier and thickener in conditioners and some creams. Made from sustainably sourced RSPO mass balance certified palm oil

Conditioner pellets - Often seen in recipes as BTMS-25. Derived from rapeseed oil and sustainably sourced RSPO mass balance certified palm oil, these pellets make a luxurious hair conditioner (the best we've ever come across) and hair detangler for leave-on and rinse-off products.

Decyl glucoside – one of the first of the alkyl polyglucoside (APG) surfactants. APG surfactants are obtained from renewable, plant-derived raw materials, such as vegetable oils and starch. They have first-rate environmental and skin compatibility profiles and fit in well with consumer demands for wellness, 'green solutions', mildness to human skin, and safety for human health.

Lactic acid - Our lactic acid is produced from fermented corn. It is used to make a harder and longer-lasting bar and has excellent exfoliant, moisturising and deep cleansing properties.

Hydrolysed wheat protein – derived from wheat germ it is used to increase hydration and elasticity, protect cuticles and strengthen hair. Because of its low molecular weight, it easily penetrates the hair shaft and absorbs into the inner fibres of the hair.

Cococaprylate – a skin-conditioning agent naturally derived from coconut oil to provide hydration, spreadability and slip.

Geogard 221 - Ecocert approved preservative.
