Thread: Solid Syndets / Non-soap Based Shampoo Bars (mass market)

    Post Solid Syndets / Non-soap Based Shampoo Bars (mass market)

    Big brands are catching up with the growing plastic-free trend, sulfate and sulfate-mild/free alike, much to our delight.

    Feel free to share your thoughts on products and add new bars to the list:

    Could you mention also which are sulfate or sulfate-free? Or are they all sulfate bars? I'm kinda puzzled now.

    Humboldt Soap Company makes some nice-looking detergent-based shampoo bars. Not sure if it counts as mass market.

    Strongest should be N.A.E., it has SLS after Potassium Lauryl Sulfate, followed by Drogerie Markt and Rossmann's house brands. I think they prefer to use SCS instead of regular sulfates because this one is harsh enough but still makes the Cosmos green certification list. None of them looks like proper shampoo, SCS is regarded as on the edge by some people, better to decide yourself... Except for the products not launched yet, all the linked pages have INCIs in plain text or in pictures.

    Well some of them, like the Love Beauty & Planet bars, are "sulfate free"?

    Rose bar Ingredients:
    sodium cocoyl isethionate (plant based ingredients), stearic acid (plant based ingredients), water (eau), sodium isethionate, fragrance (parfum), rosa damascena flower extract (plant based ingredients), astrocaryum murumuru seed butter (plant based ingredients), cocos nucifera (coconut) oil (plant based ingredients), helianthus annuus (sunflower) seed or, sodium chloride, alpha-isomethyl ionone, benzyl alcohol, benzyl salicylate, citronellol, coumarin, hexyl cinnamal, linalool.

    Which... kinda sucks for me. As far as I know my scalp/skin don't react well to those Coconut based sulfates/surfactants. I hope more bars will be made with regular sulfates. Like if brands just took the water out of their shampoo formulas to make the bars instead of creating this mutant product lol I feel like it would be more successful. I'd like to have the option of using bars for the environmental impact and such, but not if it messes up my scalp.

    I'm annoyed that they all want to be "green" by not using regular sulfates. Like, bruh, you're already making a SHAMPOO BAR that's way better than a plastic bottle you already get a gold star from me. Now gimme my sulfates plEASE. Plenty of people still need them!

    Good to know, but it is kind of a hassle if I have to click each individual link to find that little bit of information out. Could you mention it in the list itself, pretty please?

    Lush's solid shampoo bars are sulfate based. Pretty strong from what I've heard, not used them personally.
    I've not used any mass market syndet bars but I do buy from etsy and quite like them.

    Very cool list! I had no idea there were so many shampoo bars out there. The one I use is Auromere Shampoo bars. I find it consistently at Marshall’s/TJ Maxx.
