So, why are shampoo bars more sustainable than traditional bottles of shampoo? Firstly, they do away with plastic and typically require little more than a cardboard box or wrap of paper in the way of packaging.
Shampoo bars also have a lower carbon footprint than their liquid counterparts. Their ingredients tend to be less refined and therefore require less intensive manufacturing and as they smaller and lighter, there are less carbon emissions from transportation.
The ingredients used in hair bars also tend to be kinder to our hair and skin as they are formulated from natural ingredients as opposed to harmful chemicals, sulphates and silicon.
It’s a no brainer! There are now a whole array brands who are offer high performing shampoo bars that don’t compromise on quality, or the planet and we’ve selected a few of our favourites below.
