Why you should use shampoo bars

Posted by Anne Wesley on

Shampoo bars are becoming increasingly popular as a more eco-friendly and sustainable alternative to traditional liquid shampoo. Here are some reasons why you should consider using shampoo bars:

  1. Environmentally friendly: Shampoo bars typically come in minimal or plastic-free packaging, which reduces the amount of waste generated compared to traditional liquid shampoo. Additionally, because shampoo bars are more concentrated, they require less water to produce and transport.

  2. Natural ingredients: Many shampoo bars are made with natural and organic ingredients, which are often gentler on your hair and scalp than the synthetic ingredients found in traditional liquid shampoo.

  3. Longer lasting: Shampoo bars are more concentrated than liquid shampoo, which means they last longer. This makes them more cost-effective in the long run.

  4. Easy to travel with: Because shampoo bars are solid, they are easy to travel with and don't count towards your liquid allowance when flying.

  5. Versatile: Shampoo bars can be used not just for your hair, but also as a body wash, shaving soap, or even a travel laundry detergent.

  6. Reduced water usage: Shampoo bars require less water to produce than liquid shampoo, and because they are concentrated, they require less water to use. This can help to reduce your water usage and environmental impact.

Overall, using shampoo bars can be a great way to reduce your environmental impact, while also benefiting from natural ingredients, longer-lasting products, and increased versatility.


We started using shampoo bars several years ago but haven’t found the right one yet. So we have been on and off between several brands of shampoo bars and bottles of shampoo.

But now that we found @butterandlye our hunt for shampoo bars is over.

Their all-natural, fragrance-free shampoo bar is just perfect for people with sensitive skin like us. It lathers nicely and cleans our hairs beautifully without being too dry. With ingredients like jojoba oil, oat aminos, and vitamin b5, this plastic free shampoo alternative would be perfect for any hair type, from natural to curly to wavy to straight, and we highly recommend it.

We also fell in love with their Moisturizing Rosehip Face and Body Soap. The nourishing properties from rosehip oil, shea butter and other natural oils help moisturize and soften our skins beautifully, again without being too dry.

And we’re delighted to announce that Fragrance Free Solid Shampoo Bar and Moisturizing Rosehip Face & Body Soap are now available in our store.


Butter and Lye is an eco-friendly comwpany based in Brooklyn, New York that delivers high-quality natural soap while ensuring environmentally friendly business practices.

Their mission at Butter and Lye is to show you how easy it is to incorporate good-for-your-skin products into your everyday routine that truly make a difference.
