“Family favourite

As a family we have been using the shampoo bars for about three years now and we love them. It heartens me to think how much less plastic we are consuming. It’s a complete bonus that we all enjoy beautifully soft, shiny hair and the fantastic scents. Gentle bee is perfect for all the family, our young children are able to independently wash their hair without fear of a whole bottle being emptied into the bath! My youngest is three and she manages to was her hair without it getting in her eyes which was my main worry. Thank you Cath and the bees xx”

Great alternative to single use plastic!

Being super conscious of chemicals and wanting to ditch single use plastic shampoo and conditioner, I searched the internet for an alternative when I came across Honey Bee Beautiful.I was a bit nervous at first but I had no reason to be. The shampoo bar lathers up really well, even in the hard water area that I live in. My hair is soft, has a lot more volume and generally feels in much better condition.Apart from being plastic and harsh chemical free, another added bonus is that I am almost 2 months in and still have over half a bar left! Thank you ☺”

Oh my the smell!

I opened my box from the post office and was so excited to try my new product. I was a bit sceptical about a shampoo bar but was amazed by the results and the smell so much that I don't want to use bottled shampoo again! Great hair and great for the planet with less plastic bottles. Thank you!”

Product Description

Awarded 'Bronze’ in the ‘Free From Skincare Awards 2020’, our Gentle Bee shampoo and conditioning bar has proved to be a popular, well-performing, environmentally friendly alternative to traditional shampoos.

With the soothing properties of mango butter teamed with naturally conditioning guar gum, you can trust in our Gentle Bee to help gently moisturise hair and soothe scalps prone to eczema and irritation.

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

Sodium Coco Sulfate is 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.

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.

Mango Butter has high levels of saturated and monosaturated fatty acids make it useful for hair. It is an emollient and also helps the scalp regenerate skin and can be very healing for anyone who has a scalp prone to conditions such as dandruff, eczema, or psoriasis. It reduces the degeneration of skin cells and restores elasticity, creating the ideal environment for hair to flourish.

Guar Gum used in this shampoo bar is an organic compound that is a water-soluble derivative of guar gum. It gives conditioning properties and is sometimes called the natural alternative to silicones.

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 scalps that are prone to conditions such as dandruff and psoriasis.

D-Panthenol is also know as vitamin B-5. It occurs organically and is used to help hydrate and smooth your skin and hair. It provides shine, softness and strength and can help protect your hair from styling or environmental damage by locking in moisture.

Shikake Powder is a fruit powder from the Acacia plant.  It is rich in natural saponins and ideal for gentle cleansing.  It provides shine to the hair, helps detangle and it is even claimed as a hair growth booster.

Lavender Essential Oil is naturally anti-fungal and soothes.

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.

Also, did you know that as fellow nature lovers, we will donate 11p from your purchase to the Bumble Bee Conservation Trust.

Our Gentle 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 and gently message into the scalp and rinse. Inhale the soothing aroma of the natural lavender essential oils for an extra calming hair care routine.

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 bar in action:

Brilliant!

I've never got on well with 'traditional' shampoo bars, so when this was formulated I jumped at the chance to be a tester. Result? Shiny, bouncy hair, no residue. One happy lady! I'm on my second bar now, and it plays nicely with our soft Scottish water, and as I write this, the water in sunny Rhodes. Give it a try, you'll not be disappointed. Thanks Cath and the bees x
