How to use: Wet hair generously through to scalp. Rub bar gently over youe hair, it is a concentrated product so it lathers very quickly. Take care to let your shampoo bar dry between uses for longevity. Ideal places are dry flannels, upturned nail brushes, loofahs & slatted soap dishes. Avoid eye area, mucous membranes and broken skin. If suds get in the eyes rinse well with tepid water. Discontinue use if irritation occurs.
^ Sodium Coco-Sulfate is a gentle surfactant made from the oil of the whole coconut only. This means it is free from petroleum and palm derivatives. The molecules are larger than many of the earlier and cheaper surfactants such as sodium lauryl/laureth sulfate that are used in commercial toiletries. This means that sodium coco-sulfate molecules will not penetrate the upper layers of the skin and cause irritation which SLS & SLES are known to do. However everyone is different and a patch test may be helpful if you are very sensitive to surfactants or traditional soaps.
