sodium coco sulfate is basically (~60%) sodium lauryl sulfate, along with other fatty chain lengths. The "benefit" is it's guaranteed to come from coconut instead of the very very slim possibility of it coming from palm, the downside is it's still horrible for your hair and really really irritating.

SCS = SLS and it's rough on your hair. anyone telling you otherwise is trying to sell you a "natural" product.
SLS is used for cleaning pans, SLES is designed for your head / hair, and much milder but you can't make it sound 'natural' so it's falling out of favour unfortunately.

They stress the natural ingredients they use but the main item in all three products is Sodium Coco Sulphate which is yet another synthetic detergent so not very natural at all.

I even ordered the little storage tin for £2.50, which I hope will hold the Lush bar I'm currently using.

I got this with the veryme rewards and it's great it foams up really well would recommend
thanks
Yes I usually use the Lush ones but tried these and they're almost as good, for half price when on deals like this they offer far more bang for your buck imo

Bought one of these through veryme rewards, and it is TINY! Rip off.
Do you have to wrap it in cling film to keep it dry?

Coconut farming is not perfect either, coastal mangroves are being cleared in order to plant coconut plantation due to the rise in demand for coconut oil.
And the average wage of coconut farmers is less than $1 a day so the industry has many problems.

I got one of these recently with their charity hand sanitiser offer. Smells nice and works really well, as long as your shower soap tray isn't blocked it keeps well in there.
Please take note the bars are very small on this offer.

Check out friendlysoap.co.uk way cheaper and good quality. Plus very environmentally friendly and conscientious as far as I can tell.

Even with their good prices, they often do 20% off codes too which makes them even cheaper.

Thanks, that's a new company to me and seemingly a nice one
This is a really great shampoo bar foams up really good better than others I’ve tried and it’s plastic free
I just use dove beauty bar.

In your hair?


Well I am a balding bloke and I’ve tried all expensive caffeine, anti dandruff, women’s, and all sorts of shampoos and have decided that shampoos are a rip off product.

I’m not sure how a shampoo bar is any different, what are the actual differences in ingredients?

Dove bar smells great, and I haven’t really noticed any difference in how my hair feels, it’s just clean?
I’ve got it when it was £1.50 on Vodafone. The bar is fairly small. Ok for £1.50 (just). The quality seems good though but I wouldn’t pay this much. Overpriced imo
Interesting concept. Heated.

I just use Aldi soap, haven't been able to smell my hair for 20 years, ain't enough of it!
Thanks! Amazing as it’s vegan and cruelty free!
Took one of these on a 3 week far east trip and used it each day. I liked it and better/lighter to travel with. I've had a few of their products and recommend.
I get mine from nonplasticbeach.com nicer than the gruum stuff and cheaper too

Do you know of any shampoos/body washes without SLS/SCS? I've tried to find some but it's nigh on impossible!

If you look for SLES or sodium laureth sulfate, that’s a good start. Most if not all shampoos / gels used to be made of that. It’s SLS which has been ethoxylated which sounds awful but it makes it mild enough to put on your skin.

if you really want sulfate free, you wanna look for ingredients like coco-glucoside, or decyl or lauryl glucoside, only downside to these is they don’t foam as nicely but they are more natural and get the job done. You’ll often see them mixed with a whole bunch of other stuff to enhance the foam tho.

Also worth checking out isethionates, not great surfactants but they’re naturally derived and mild as hell, think Dove ‘soap’ bars, they’re basically the same stuff.

ANYTHING is better than using SLS, your hair and scalp will thank you.
I'll give it a try. Thanks OP. Heat added.
I picked 3 for £12 with free delivery tho.
