Hair soap - the environmentally friendly shampoo alternative
Hair soap - the environmentally friendly shampoo alternative
Natural & environmentally friendly Avoid plastic and care for your hair
Shampoo is so common in everyday use that it is almost impossible to realize how environmentally harmful and harmful this product can be to health. We want to introduce you to an environmentally friendly and natural shampoo alternative, which will certainly soon be part of your everyday life: Aleppo Hair Soap from FINIgrana!
Hair soap - a real natural product with many advantages
Synthetic vs. natural tensides
Tensides clean shampoos and hair soaps. Many conventional shampoos contain synthetic tensides, which can even be produced from petroleum. The natural tensides in our Aleppo Hair Soap, on the other hand, are produced by saponifying the best olive and laurel oils and are broken down naturally again.
Silicone does not belong in hair care
Many shampoo manufacturers use silicones to create a silky shine after shampooing. These substances have not yet been sufficiently researched for health and the environment. What is certain, however, is that silicones can accumulate in water and are difficult to biodegrade. We therefore think that silicones do not belong in the hair and in the environment. Aleppo hair soap does not come into contact with such substances during its natural production.
The original recipe of the well-known soaps from Aleppo comes - as the name already suggests - from the area around the Syrian city of Aleppo and probably dates back to the eighth century AD. In the meantime the soap is not only produced in the direct vicinity of Aleppo, but also in south-eastern areas of Turkey. However, nothing has changed in the traditional production and the consistently natural ingredients.
The Aleppo soaps are cooked in large vats, provided with various traditional oils and then matured for up to nine months. The finished product then comes xyz certified to your home.
Avoid plastic waste
A piece of Aleppo Hair Soap can be as productive as three bottles of conventional shampoo. The advantage of this environmentally friendly shampoo alternative is obvious. Calculate how many plastic bottles you could save alone over the year, how many your whole family or circle of friends could save ... It's a lot. We don't want to talk about the savings potential for the whole of Germany!
In any case, your savings will result in a lot less plastic and thus also massively less resulting microplastic, which would result from the slow disintegration of the bottles. This microplastic is already unnoticed and present in rough masses. Our waters, the valuable drinking water and our bodies now contain measurable microplastics - a substance that certainly does not belong there.
"The WWF indicates the average amount of microplastics a person consumes per week at up to 5 grams. 5 grams of plastic are equivalent to the weight of a credit card."
A catastrophe that we must fight with all means. The only way is to put as little new plastic into circulation as possible. So do without shampoo in plastic bottles and choose an environmentally friendly shampoo alternative.
Hair soap in daily use - tip
A rinse with acid rinse after shampooing is a good idea in most cases. The conditioner will make your hair shinier, healthier and easier to comb. For friends of hair soap it also has an additional cleansing effect, because no soap residue sticks.
Make your own acid rinse
To do this you simply take 1-2 tablespoons cider vinegar in a litre of water and rinse the still wet hair directly after washing. You don't need to rinse out the acid rinse afterwards. The light vinegar smell doesn't last long, and the hair simply feels great.
Hair soap on the move - the tip for on the go
When travelling the Aleppo Hair Soap plays out another strength - it is unbeatably compact and economical. Simply cut a piece of the soap with a knife into handy portions that are hardly noticeable in your luggage. As we learned above, a third of a piece of hair soap replaces a bottle of shampoo. Have a good trip!
Good for you - good for nature!
