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 base 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!
Mild and gentle, this base contains no sulfates, and no alcohol. 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. It's pH balanced to 5.5 for those of you who are concerned about pH levels. This base is unscented so you can use it as-is, or add your own essential / fragrance oils to create your own custom shampoo! When scenting, please remember to keep your blends under the 2% marker. We typically scent this base with a 1% essential oil load.
Adding any additional water, butters or oils may compromise the shelf life, and your own shelf life testing would need to be completed. Oil based additives will quickly reduce the lathering ability, water soluble ingredients generally do not hinder lather but may need additional preservatives added to them before being incorporated into the base.
Please note that during the winter months this item may congeal during shipping. If your product arrives super thick and very cloudy, 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 conditions it will be significantly more see thru.
