What makes EarthKind different from other shampoo bars?
To make the EarthKind Shampoo Bars we take gentle, naturally derived cleansing materials made from coconuts and blend them with organic oils like avocado and coconut, and therapeutic oils like tea tree and eucalyptus. We then incorporate into them a natural and highly effective conditioning agent made from sugar, and usually only found in high quality skin creams, to create superb shampoo bars that are not only gently but efficiently clean your hair with a nice conditioning effect.
Can EarthKind be used on all hair types?
There are three different EarthKind shampoo bars. Bergamot & Sage for dry, damaged or coloured hair. Citrus Leaf for frequent use on oilier or more regular hair. And Tea Tree & Eucalyptus which is very good for improving the health of the scalp with these two natural, anti-microbial oils. EarthKind products are also formulated to have excellent effects on both African and Asian hair.
The EarthKind Organic Oats Conditioning Bar and the Pre-Wash Elasticity Treatment Bar are both suitable for ALL hair types.
Are EarthKind products suitable for vegans and vegetarians?
All EarthKind shampoo and conditioning bars are made with vegan formulations. They always will be.
The only product within our range made with a non-vegan formula is the Elasticity Bar - a rich pre-wash treatment that adds elasticity and strength to the hair by utilising hydrolysed elastin. Elastin is an incredible protein that allows hair to return to a healthy state after brushing, styling or harsher chemical processes such as colouring.
All EarthKind products are developed by a leading UK Trichologist and cosmetic scientist, so the health of the hair and scalp is at the very heart of what we do. We see the Elasticity Bar as a great way to introduce a luxurious product to an audience who had not necessarily considered converting from bottle to bar. Like our other products, the elasticity bar is plastic-free, made with natural, sustainable ingredients, and is highly concentrated with no added water (traditional bottles of conditioners and treatments can contain up to a 90% water to 10% active ingredient ratio - EarthKind bars contain 100% active ingredients).
The great news is that our lab is deep into the development of a wonderful Vegan Pre-Wash Treatment Bar which is currently going through clinical and dermatological testing and is on schedule to be released later this year. Like the Elasticity Bar, this promises to be a first-of-its-kind, market-leading, eco-conscious haircare product.
It’s time for all consumers, whether vegan or not, to embrace bar technology ❤️
Do EarthKind shampoo bars contain parabens?

Are EarthKind shampoo bars tested on animals?

Where are EarthKind products made?
