Now vegan friendly! We've removed the silk amino acids in our ingredient panel, and replaced it with keratin protein which is a plant based alternative to silk.
Customers have asked and asked for us to create a sulfate free, alcohol free shampoo that is gentle, yet effective. Well, wait no more, because its here, and its wonderful! Mild and gentle, this base contains NO sulfates, alcohol, parabens, gluten nor phthalates. Yay!
The suds-ing action is rich & creamy, making it extra kind to your scalp and hair. The texture is pretty close to a store bought product, as far as thickness goes. It has good body, and will not slip thru your fingers like some natural shampoos do. Because of the ingredients we use, the "color" is translucent to opaque. It's pH balanced to 5.5 for those of you who are concerned about pH levels.
Please note that during the winter months this item could congeal/change color during shipping. If your product arrives milky in color, allow the product to warm up naturally by simply allowing the bottle to rest a day or so in a normal room temperature room. Store in a location at or above 65 degrees. When the base is cold, the color will be opaque and when stored at normal room temperature it will be significantly more see thru.
Customizing this base: The base will generally accept additional additives that are water soluble, however adding water and or water soluble ingredients may compromise the shelf life. Consider adding additional preservative to any water based additives. Oil based additives will reduce the lathering ability, so use caution. Take good notes and trial test during your formulation process.
