Best shampoo bar ever!

This product is simply wonderful it gives my hair volume and shine and smells wonderful. It lasts for ages and now my husband has started "borrowing" it as well! It lathers up beautifully and rinses out easily it is just the best - I cannot recommend it highly enough. Thanks so much for making it so easy to shop responsibly. :-D

An Essential!

What a fantastic product! The smell is divine, but that isn't even the best thing about this shampoo! I have short hair prone to being a little greasy by the end of the day, but with this shampoo just a few strokes of the bar on my hair gives a fantastic lather for a great scrub, leaving my hair smelling great, clean and fresh with absolutely no residue and no greasy hair at the end of the day! It is going to be great value for money as I am sure it is going to last ages and with the fantastic bonus of non-plastic packaging... I am a convert!


If you want a bar shampoo, or just a lovely shampoo, this is the one. For the last 6 months I have been trying shampoo bars from every supplier I can find. Unfortunately they all leave a residue, I'm not sure whether it's our water supply or just me, but this wonderful little bar leaves my hair feeling amazing, smelling amazing and just fabulous. I can't thank Honey Bee enough.

Product Description

Awarded 'Commendation' by the Beauty Shortlist Awards 2020, our ‘Queen Bee’ Shampoo Bar has proved to be a popular, well-performing, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional shampoos.

As the ingredients may be new to many, please see below for some further information as to what they are and why we are using them:

Sodium Coco Sulfate, an EcoCert approved ingredient, made from the fatty acids of coconut oil, and is a good palm-free alternative to sodium lauryl sulfate. It is milder, creates a rich foam, cleanses hair and skin and leaves a great shine.

Sodium Cocoyl Isethionate is also derived from coconut oil. It is mild, well tolerated, has good foaming power and provides a rich creamy lather.

Shea Butter helps to soften frizzy hair and make it more manageable.

Varisoft EQ 65 is a green, EcoCert approved, readily biodegradable ester quat which acts as a high performing conditioning agent aiding in smoothing down the hair cuticle and preventing hair damage. It is conditioning to skin and hair, while improving wet detangling and combing, and offers superior dry combing and hair feel.

Cetearyl Alcohol is an emollient known to soften your skin and hair and provide slip which allows us to detangle our hair better.

Coconut Vinegar is made from the sap pf the coconut palm.  Once extracted it is allowed to ferment into acetic acid of about 4%. This ingredient helps to provide shine and gloss.

Honey is an emollient which means it seals moisture in your hair, keeping it conditioned.  It is has rich antioxidant properties which prevent damage, keeping your scalp and hair healthy and is naturally anti-bacterial helping to prevent scalp infections and soothing scalp conditions such as dandruff and psoriasis.

Rose Geranium Essential Oil hydrates hair, promotes growth and leaves your locks smelling delish!

To prolong the life of your shampoo bar, we recommend letting it air dry in between uses by using dish with drainage or an eco-friendly shampoo bag. For a 100% natural sisal bag to store your shampoo bar in between use or for travel CLICK HERE.

Our Queen Bee is available in approximately a 75g or 10g round. Both lovingly wrapped in fully compostable, recycled greaseproof paper. Please note that as our shampoo bars are hand moulded their weight can vary slightly.  

Directions for Use

Stroke our shampoo bar all over your wet hair or rub between your hands to create a lather.  Gently message into the scalp and rinse – most of our ‘Queen Bee’ converts find they do not need to follow up with a conditioner. Inhale the uplifting aroma of the hair hydrating rose, orange and patchouli natural oils.

We understand eco -friendly shampoo bars often require a slightly different technique – isn’t it frustrating when you are just not sure if you are using a product correctly. To help, have a look at our video below demonstrating our Queen Bee bar in action:  (cue video of Cath in shower)

A lovely surprise

I wanted to have fewer plastic bottles in the bathroom in future so decided to try the solid shampoos. I did not get on with the other type of solid shampoo but am so glad I tried this one as well. It lathers well, has left my hair beautifully clean and smells gorgeous. It also lasts a surprisingly long time. I have not felt the need to use a conditioner (although that is something you may like to develop in future?), and I have now invested in the bigger bar.

Amazing product

Wow to say I'm impressed by this product would be a massive understatement. I've struggled to find a shampoo bar in the past but wanted to reduce my household plastics, I thought I would try the sample to take away for a short break, it was so amazing I ordered the full size before I got back home., it's that good I didn't want to be without it. The sample has lasted from the 17th of August until today I wash my hair 5 times a week & have shoulder length hair so it's lasted a long time. The shampoo bar lathers well, my hair smells nice & is soft, also I hardly use a conditioner anymore maybe once a week. I highly recommend this product, and will continue to purchase it. Thank you Catherine your products and ethics are fantastic and just want I need to reduce my household plastic usage.

Deborah Hunt

I have tried many shampoo bars before but have been disappointed. I decided to purchase this sample and can’t believe how amazing it is. It lathered really well and was really gentle on my scalp which is often really itchy. The best part was that there was no residue and it rinsed out easily. I didn’t even feel the need to use conditioner. My hair is shoulder length and quite wavy. I am so glad I tried this bar and will be buying the full size in future.
