Anyone else hate traveling with mini bottles of so many different things: face wash, body wash, shampoo, conditioner, etc., plus dealing with the TSA liquid requirements? I did too. After some research and development, I formulated our Cleansing Bars - a soap that works for the whole body (hair too!). I ended up loving it at home as well - my four bottles in the shower are now forever replaced by one perfect bar.

Our Organic Ingredients:

+ Pure Virgin Coconut Oil is a natural anti-bacterial and anti-fungal. It also hydrates and conditions the skin and helps retain that moisture.
+ Non-GMO Vitamin E helps to protect and repair the skin. This important oil also controls frizz when used in hair.
+ Castor Oil is a big player in maintaining beautifully healthy skin. Not only does it treat acne and sunburn, but it also helps reduce the appearance of stretch marks and scars. It is also anti-aging, retains moisture in the skin and helps to control frizz in hair.
+ Both sea salt and distilled water are natural ingredients that complete our cleansing bars.

As of now, we handcraft two different cleansing bars year round for older children and adults; our Simply Coconut Cleansing Bar and Detox Cleansing Bar.

Simply Coconut Cleansing Bar:
In addition to the above ingredients, our Simply Coconut Cleansing Bar contains coconut (big surprise!) which helps to restore brittle hair and split ends and acts as a mild exfoliant. It also helps to retain moisture in hair and skin and is naturally anti-aging. This bar also contains soap nuts which help to naturally clean. We recommend the Simply Coconut Cleansing Bar for everyday use for your hands, face, body, and hair.

Detox Cleansing Bar:
In addition to the base ingredients, our Detox Cleansing Bar contains activated charcoal. This amazing ingredient removes toxins and impurities from the skin, treats acne, minimizes pores, and absorbs oil. We recommend our Detox Cleansing Bar for everyday use especially for acne-prone, oily, and troubled skin.

Additionally, we release 1-2 additional cleansing bars each season, which contain natural ingredients and have their own added benefits.

Keep an eye out for our upcoming seasonal bars launching November 2nd! For the holidays, we will be releasing two; Peppermint and Vanilla + Chai.

Baby Shampoo and Wash:
Our final year-round cleansing bar was handcrafted with the littlest ones in mind. Their soft, brand-new skin requires the most natural and nourishing ingredients. This cleansing bar does not contain Vitamin E or Castor Oil like our others. Instead, I formulated this bar using coconut milk, calendula, and gluten-free oats.

+ Coconut Milk retains moisture and helps to keep their precious little hairs from tangling.
+ Calendula is a natural anti-inflammatory and is known to help relieve eczema and diaper rash.
+ Gluten-free Oats are a natural anti-inflammatory, but most importantly, acts as a natural exfoliant to gently remove dead skin cells and mineralize dry skin.

Recommended Uses:
Our Cleansing Bars are multi-purpose for your hair, face, body, and hands. They are truly safe and effective from “head to toe.” Because of the base ingredients mentioned above, our bars nourish and moisturize without stripping your skin and hair of their natural oils. Like most of our products, they are safe for all skin-care types.

As the cleansing bars come in blocks, we recommend the bar be cut in slices with the excess being stored in the provided box. Lather the bar directly onto your skin or hair and rinse with warm water. The ingredients in each bar will naturally exfoliate and cleanse. You don’t need to see lots of “suds” to know it’s working.

If you are using the cleansing bars on your hair, please know there is a period of adjustment as the bar is working to expel all the chemicals from commercial shampoos. For the best results during your transition, wash your hair twice with the cleansing bars and follow with a vinegar rinse. Best of all, our bars won’t strip your hair of its natural oils so there’s no need to use a conditioner.

You will want to keep the cleansing bar as dry as possible in between washes. We recommend storage on a two-piece soap dish like this one. If bars aren’t your things, no worries. Each purchase includes simple instructions to turn your cleansing bar into a liquid wash. Grab a glass soap bottle from our shop.

See what our customers say about our Cleansing Bars:

I absolutely love this cleansing bar. My skin feels softer, and more hydrated! It also works really well as a shaving bar too! I sliced my bar up into 3 slices, it makes it easier to handle in the shower, and I think it is lasting a lot longer too!” - Karla

“I LOVE these shampoo/soap bars from UO. The coconut bar is very refreshing and suds up really well! I have only used it on my face so far, but it leaves my skin feeling clear and soft. Like all UO products, it lasts a long time!” - Emily

“This is the best soap for babies and kids! Mommas if you’re looking for something 100% pure and natural, this is it! I’ve been using it on my son since he was about 1.5 (he’s 5 now). His skin is so soft and I feel good knowing there’s no chemicals or artificial ingredients.” - Trish
