ABOUT THIS PRODUCT
Note: We're moving this product to the Generation II formulation. The new formula contains SCI which makes the bar better in hard water and with varying water pH levels. The new bars are curing (waiting for the soap to fully dry and harden) and will be available shortly.
Grace of Me 2% Salicylic Bars are fragrance free. A single bar is equal to roughly three 8 fl oz bottles of shampoo. 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 are 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. The uses are many and well documented online.
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 an environmental cause in 8th grade. Perhaps someday shampoo bottles with be a thing of the past.
We don't bevel the edges of our round bars - variations in appearance and texture are normal. The spotty patter is the result of Rose Hip powder - colors range from burgundy to tan brown. Rose Hip is high in vitamin C and adds gentle exfoliation properties to the bar.

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.
Some people are sensitive or allergic to Salicylic Acid. Avoid contact with eyes. Salicylic Acid and the shampoo bar itself will irritate the eyes (flush eyes for several minutes if shampoo comes into contact).
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.
Sodium Stearate (sodium stearate is the sodium salt of stearic acid - this white solid is the most common 'soap')
Sorbitol (a sugar alcohol)
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 Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) [which is not safe].
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% Salicylic Acid
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)
Rose Hip (Rosa Canina) Powder (rose hips - full of vitamin C - develop on wild roses as the flowers drop off. The rose hip, also called the rose haw, is actually the fruit of the rose)
Polyquaternium 7 (organic conditioner)
Aloe Barbadensis Leaf Juice Powder
Sodium Benzoate (a natural preservative)
The Grace of Me products prioritize the use of recycled and renewable materials. The brown Kraft envelope used by this product is 100% compostable - an eco-friendly choice. The sleeve is made of Kraft paper with an inner plant-based PLA lining. The packaging is ASTM D 6400 and DIN EN 13432 certified. These certify that the PLA and paper will compost satisfactorily, including biodegrading at a rate comparable to known compostable materials. The outer shipper is also 100% recyclable and made from 100% recycled paperboard with 90% PCC. The pressure sensitive closure uses gum/glue so that we don't need to use plastic tape. Even our thermal shipping label can be recycled or composted.
