Great for washing all types of hair, this bar contains no animal by-products, no synthetic fragrance, and no detergents. The base soap is made from food grade oils of Rice Bran (Oryza sativa), Palm (Elaeis guineensis) and Coconut (Cocos nucifera). Essential oil content is less than 1.5%. Simply wet hair, rub bar, then suds up the thick lather; it also works as a shaving soap with a traditional mug and brush.
