Located in COMOX.
Skin Goop's shampoo bars are $12.50 and $14.50, depending on scent.
Please visit our website, as seen in the photo for details, etc.

The majority of shampoo bars on the market waste butters and oils by adding them to a bar that is supposed to CLEAN your hair. These added butters and oils compete with the oils on your scalp and hair for the cleaning ingredients in these 'other shampoo bars'.

That means you end up applying more of the 'other shampoo bar' to clean your hair of those butters and oil, but then you're also applying more of the useless butters and oils(!!!)along with the cleaning ingredients, so you need more of the 'other shampoo bar' to clean off those butters and oils you've just rubbed onto your hair. It's a vicious cycle!

These wasted butters and oils are evident because they are suspended in the water, making it cloudy.

The photos show one gram of tiny bits of each shampoo bar plus 70 grams boiling water, in case you're wondering...

AND the shampoo bar that resulted in CLOUDINESS had a pH of 6.5. This is too high for hair, it should be around 4.5-5.5. Tsk, tsk, large company. You should know better!

Garn*** is NOT the only shampoo bar on the market whose makers are negligent in adjusting the pH of their bars to an appropriate pH for the hair and scalp.

The shampoo bar that contains 89% cleaning ingredients and NO oils/fats/triglycerides or fluffy marketing ingredients, has the correct pH of 5.

There are other shampoo bars on the market even worse than the Garn*** one in this example, which have way more wasted ingredients that just get washed down the drain and compete with your scalp's sebum for cleansing away. Some of these wasted ingredients are: coconut oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, olive oil, jojoba oil, macadamia nut oil, cupuacu butter, apricot seed oil, hemp oil.

How is wasting these (mostly) tropical oils and butters "environmentally friendly", "sustainable", "eco-conscious", "zero waste", blah blah blah?

It would be far better to buy a liquid shampoo (so long as it has preservatives in it!) which at least does not have a large % of its ingredient list consisting of wasted (mostly tropical) oils or butters.
