2% Pyrithione Zinc Solid Shampoo Bar

by Grace of Me

Rated: 4.4 out of 5 based on 21 customer reviews

Zinc Dry Shampoo Bar

This 2% Pyrithione Zinc Shampoo Bar is a great alternative to mass market 1% Pyrithione Zinc liquid shampoos - a single bar will give you more than 100 washes. Shampoo bars last way longer than liquid shampoo because you can get your hair all sudsy with just a few swipes through your hair as opposed to a big squirt of liquid shampoo. Our shampoo bars are free form Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) and made mostly from vegetable ingredients. We use all-natural essential oil aromas and add soothing Aloe Vera and Shea Butter. These bars have excellent lather. The high glycerin content provides good moisturizing. The soap is safe for everyday use by adults and children and this cleansing shampoo bar is good for all skin and hair types.

This product is branded 'Grace of Me' and was developed in part by Grace Addison of Falmouth, Maine (ME). Fourtheen-year-old Grace, daughter of DermaHarmony's owner, wants to rid the world of unnecessary plastics. She picked shampoo as her environmental cause in 9th grade. Perhaps someday shampoo bottles with be a thing of the past.

This product is Made in Maine from domestic and internationally sourced ingredients.

The list looks long and complicated because making highly performant shampoo is not easy. This is a vegetable based solid shampoo with conditioning additives. Every ingredient was scrutinized for safety. We've chosen the most natural ingredients possible to produce an aesthetically pleasing safe shampoo bar.

  • Glycerin
  • Sodium Stearate (sodium stearate is the sodium salt of stearic acid - this white solid is the most common 'soap')
  • Sorbitol (a sugar alcohol)
  • Water
  • Sodium Laurate (a surfactant that is entirely derived from the vegetable sources of coconut and/or palm kernel oil - this ingredient is frequently confused with Sodium Laureth Sulfate [not safe]. Sodium Laurate is not Sodium Laureth Sulfate)
  • Propylene Glycol (made from glycerin, this is a moisturizer, emulsifier and carrier for fragrance oils)
  • Sodium Laureth Sulfate (SLES - a plant derived surfactant found in many personal care products)
  • Sodium Chloride (table salt)
  • Disodium Lauryl (a surfactant foam boosting agent derived from plants - a surfactant is a substance that lowers the surface tension of oils)
  • Sulfosuccinate (another surfactant foam boosting agent derived from plants)
  • 2% Pyrithione Zinc
  • Titanium Dioxide (a natural mineral)
  • Stearic Acid (a vegetable derived waxy substance used to add firmness to the shampoo bar - is also a surfactant)
  • Lauric Acid (a saturated fatty acid that comes from Paul or Coconut that contributes hardness, cleansing, and big fluffy lather)
  • Pentasodium Pentetate (this salt of Pentetic Acid is used as a chelating agent to bind and sequester metal ions)
  • Tetrasodium Etidronate (this is a chelating agent formed of four carboxylic acid groups attached to two nitrogen atoms)
  • Polyquaternium 7 (organic conditioner)
  • Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder
  • Sodium Benzoate (a natural preservative)
  • Bar specific ingredients:

    • Lite Citrus: Linalool (naturally occurring terpene alcohol from flowers), D-Limonene (oil of citrus fruit peels), Blue Mica. The color of this bar is light blue.
    • Peppermint: Mentha Piperita Oil (peppermint), Cedarwood Oil, Mica, Iron Oxide. The color of this bar is light green.
    • Vanilla & Cinnamon: Vanilla, Ginger, Cinnamon, Nutmeg, & Carnation Oils. The color of this bar is white - the bar may brown slightly with age because of the vanilla.
    • Lavender: Bulgarian Lavender Essential Oil, Mica, Iron Oxide, Manganese Violet. The color of this bar is light lavender.
    • Tea Tree: Tea Tree Oil (Melaleuca alternifolia), Lemongrass Essential Oil, Mica, Iron Oxide. The color of this bar is light brown/tan.

    Colors vary slightly from batch to batch and as bars cure.

    Rub directly onto hair to create a later. Massage into your hair and scalp. Leave in contact with skin for at least 30 seconds. Rinse well. Store bar on a soap tray or rack so that it dries between uses.

    Warnings: Some people are sensitive or allergic to Zinc Pyrithione. A mild tingling or burning sensation is not uncommon (incidence under 5%) at first use and usually subsites with continued use. If you experience a severe burning sensation you should discontinue use because you are sensitive or allergic. Avoid contact with eyese. Zinc Pyrithione and the shampoo bar itself will irritate the eyes (flush eyes for several minutes if shampoo comes into contact).
