This week I'm working on beer and wine soaps that will be available in a month or so. Beer soap is pretty popular these days. The idea of using beer in soap is pretty neat in it's self, but did you know that it might actually be good for your skin and hair too? There have been studies around the world claiming that beer not only helps to control oil, but that it also softens the skin.
"I don't want to smell like a beer."
Don't worry, soap made with beer doesn't smell like a beer. Our beer soaps are made with fragrances that compliment the very faint beer smell that is left once saponification (the process of converting oils & lye into soap) is complete.
If you're interested in trying beer soap, raise your glass (or shower pouf) "clink". A Citrus Shandy bar will be available in a couple of weeks with more varieties to follow. I hope you enjoy our beer bars. Wishing you blissful showers and baths. -Cassie
Disclaimer: I have no scientific evidence that beer helps to control oil or soften skin. At Pure Bliss Body Confections we use beer in our soaps for cosmetic purposes only.
First I have to tell you, I personally have very long thick hair. When I first came across the idea to create a shampoo bar I was excited to ditch the chemical loaded shampoo I was using, but nervous about what would happen to my hair. I was warned that hair has to transition and basically freaks out when you switch to natural hair care. After a ton of research I started planning my hair care line. Stay tuned for conditioner bars, vinegar rinse, shampoo (for those that don't want to switch completely), conditioner, leave-in conditioner, hair mask and dry shampoo.
Shampoo bars aren't for everyone, especially those with hard water. The soap tends to latch on to the minerals and chemicals in hard water and leave them behind on your hair. That being said, don't worry, we've got you covered. A liquid shampoo is in the works for those that can't use bars.
So... My personal shampoo bar experience. I absolutely love what has happened to my hair. I use a vinegar rinse every time I shampoo and my hair has not once "freaked out". My hair is so shiny and soft which is great after years of frizz.
Need a few reasons to switch?
• Chemicals in traditional shampoo strip the hair of its natural oils
•Shampoo bars last longer than a bottle of shampoo and you can use them as a full body bar. Perfect for traveling.
•Our shampoo bars are loaded with things your hair will love... Mallow extract, Argan oil, coconut oil, castor oil, avocado & shea butter. Rosemary, lavender and tea tree are all great for the scalp and hair
I hope you enjoy our shampoo bars as much as I have. Have you tried our shampoo bars? We would love to hear about your experience. Wishing you Blissful showers & baths!
