Made in Kildare, Ireland from natural ingredients.
Our second, new range of bars, called "Baby foam" shampoo bars, are made with Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate (SCI - known as "baby foam") as a base, an all natural ingredient derived only from coconut. SCI's low PH level means baby foam bars are more stable than cold-pressed shampoo bars, so they react the same regardless of the hardness of your water, they lather well, and give a thorough clean. These bars leave your hair flowing, shiny, and healthy with no transition period.

Dagda: Dagda was the Celtic god of the earth, and was a figure of immense power, a name we just had to borrow for this powerful shampoo bar. Baobab oil, which is a powerful oil packed with omega 3 fatty acids as well as vitamin A, D and E, seeps deep down in to the hair follicle and helps to trigger hair growth, as well as leaving hair moisturized yet not greasy. Together with Lemongrass and Eucalyptus which give a fresh scent, it is a good bar for moisture control, as they leave hair shiny but helps to reduce the production of excess oil.

Freya: Norse goddess Freya inspires this shampoo bar, a lady associated with love, sex, beauty, fertility and gold. And what better embodies these things than the luxurious Argan oil and Lavender that forms this bar? For tired, frizzy and hair that get's a lot of styling, Argan oil really can do wonders. With high levels of vitamin E and essential fatty acids, Argan oil help to create silky and soft hair that is more manageable. Suitable for normal-dry and maybe slightly damaged hair. For hair that get's a good bit of styling, or just needs that but of extra love. Weight: 75 g (preventing approx. 2 plastic bottles from being produced)
Apollo: Apollo, the god from greek mythology best known for healing, is the perfect god to represent this bright yellow shampoo bar, loaded with Goats Milk powder, Ylang Ylang and Castor oil.

Castor oil acts as an humectant to lock in moisture, leaving hair smooth and shiny but also promotes hair growth together with the glorious Ylang Ylang and works especially well on curls.Weight: 75 g (approximately 2 plastic bottles prevented from being made)
