When you reach the bottom of that bottle of shampoo, conditioner or body wash, stop for a minute and think before replacing it with more of the same. Hair care products are generally brimming with petrochemicals, sulfates and fragrance, making them a major target for replacement with a non-toxic, eco-friendly substitute.

The Organic Shikakai is harvested from the seed pods of the small South Asian tree Acadia Concinna, and extracted in the organic sugar and grape juice. The resulting rich scrub is combined Dr. Bronner’s pure castile soap base, resulting in a multi-purpose soap and conditioner with a rich emollient lather and moisturizing powers. Shikakai has been used for millennia in India as a gentle conditioning cleanser for both skin and hair, and this blend works great on skin as well as a light exfoliant and hydration agent, leaving your whole body deliciously smooth and silky from head to toe!
I use Dr Bronner‘s soap not just for personal care but even to scrub my bathtub and counter tops and to clean my most delicate makeup brushes. Bronner’s products have often been called ‘magic soap’, and the original products were billed as being “18-1 uses!” –but the company claims that there are far more than that based on letters from consumers detailing their own special use for Bronner soap.
Using this or a similar product allows you to replace multiple toxic bath/body and cleaning products in your own bathroom – all with one simple purchase! Make getting rid of your current commercial shampoo and conditioner part of greening your routine.
