J.R.LIGGETT'S® SHAMPOO BARS
- HOW THEY ARE MADE -
THEIR INGREDIENTS & USAGE


All of J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bars are made from the same basic ingredients, primarily Olive Oil, Coconut Oil and Castor Oil. The oils we use are all food grade and edible. These oils are not “Organic” because once they have undergone the “saponification” process (the chemical transformation that occurs when we make our shampoo bars) the organic benefits from these oils are lost. We do use Organic oils when ever possible though, but only when they can be used to make a difference and share their benefits with the user.

The shampoo oils are combined with Sodium Hydroxide, which is lye. Lye was originally removed from wood ashes with water. This is what allowed “soap makers” especially in England and France in the 18th and 19th centuries to make such wonderful soaps. Their quality was known throughout the world as the finest.

Saponification is the process by which our shampoo bars are made. It is the combination of oils and sodium hydroxide and pure spring water that creates the magic of transforming these raw ingredients that otherwise would not be capable of cleaning your hair or anything else. This process changes the properties of all of the ingredients into soap or in our case shampoo for your hair.

It is the Formulation that makes all the difference. Our special formulation is a well-guarded trade secret that creates such a gentle and mild, wonderful shampoo for your hair. It leaves your hair clean and healthy with lots of body. It rinses out quickly and easily, which saves both water and time. There are NO harmful Detergents such as SLS and DEA used in our shampoo. 100% detergent free!

Most all “Liquid” shampoos are made from detergents such as SLS and DEA. They completely strip all the natural oils from your hair and scalp. You then need to use a  conditioner in order to even get a comb through your hair.

J.R.LIGGETT’S shampoo bars do not require a conditioner as it doesn’t strip all the natural oils. It only removes the excess oils, dirt and grime while leaving some of your natural oils intact to keep your skin and scalp healthy and vibrant. This is what nature intended.

All of our products are 100% Vegan - no animal products or animal testing, and is 100% biodegradable, even down to the paper wrapper. J.R.LIGGETT’S products are both People Friendly and Earth Friendly.        100% dedicated to the environment.
