And you may have noticed in the news articles about chemicals in our bathroom products. Here are just a few:
Problems: Chemicals in Shampoo - too much 'stuff' or 'clutter'
Deadly Antibacterial Chemical Triclosan Found in Human Breast Milk, Blood Plasma
and Lather, Rinse, Repeat
Basically you need to worry about whether your shampoo contains neurotoxins, or carcinogens or reproductive toxins - I don't care what brand it is....I don't want to use it! You can buy supposely organic and natural shampoos but I've noticed even those have bad chemicals listed at times. Plus the cost is high, they use a lot of packaging (bad for the environment), and they in plastic bottles most of the time.
Solution: Goat Milk Shampoo Soap
I've tried different home made versions of shampoo including the baking soda/water mixture among others and really like the shampoo soap. He comes in scents from essentials oils or real herbs AND it LATTERS just like the high end shampoos. Tip put the bar of soap on your head after wetting and move the bar around to latter...I just lattered it in my hands, and it wasn't near and great lattering. The greatest part of all this is the fact that you can use the soap for everyone and you can use it for the your body wash too! Plus for the celiacs out there....this soap is Gluten-free....no wheat protein or startch is used!
These would make great Christmas gifts!
Disclosure: My son works for The Great Canadian Soap Company and I received a sample since they were imperfect for sale...just as good I might add. Having said that, I likely would never have tried the shampoo bars otherwise.
