NEW LINE FROM THE GRANDPA SOAP COMPANY PROMISES UNIQUELY NATURAL HAIRCARE
Originators of Pine Tar soaps start a new haircare tradition, with cruelty-free, naturally-formulated shampoos and conditioners
I am always on the lookout for natural hair care products, and so I was happy to get the chance to review The Grandpa Soap Company products. (I honestly thought that the products might geared more toward men or perhaps the elderly because of the name, but boy, was I wrong!)
The Grandpa Soap Company, one of the oldest continuously operating soap-makers in America, is introducing a new line of naturally-made hair care products. Formulated from proven, functional ingredients, Grandpa’s shampoos and conditioners round out a product line that is able to solve any skin and hair problem, the natural way.
The new haircare collection includes Pine Tar scalp-therapy shampoo and conditioner, which teams pine tar with the natural properties of tea tree oil to combat dry, itchy scalp.
Three additional shampoo and conditioner duos are being introduced to provide specific benefits: smoothing and nourishing Buttermilk for dry and damaged color-treated hair, purifying and rejuvenating Rosemary and Rose Clay to restore healthy hair shine, and clarifying and calming organic Witch Hazel to remove environmental build-up and oil residue.
All of The Grandpa Soap Company’s products are free of the harsh chemicals commonly found in bath products, including sulfates, parabens, phthalates, silicones, petroleum, and artificial fragrances and colors. They are gentle enough for daily use and safe for color-treated hair.
The company’s commitments to cruelty-free and environmentally sustainable practices are backed by third-party certifications, including Leaping Bunny and the National Celiac Association, for certified Gluten-Free. The packaging for Grandpa’s haircare products, including the 8-ounce tube and cap, are fully-recyclable and all components are made in the same facility, to reduce the company’s carbon footprint.
“As a mom, I understand how difficult it can be to keep a home free of unnecessarily toxic cleansers.” says Katherine Jarnigo, co-CEO of The Grandpa Soap Company. “We are excited to reveal our new line of shampoos and conditioners to families who are seeking responsibly-made and naturally-formulated personal care products.”
My thoughts: I was sent a generous assortment of samples from The Grandpa’s Soap Company. I received several smaller sizes and several full-sized products. I am in Grandpa Soap Company heaven!
I have been using and loving all of the products in the month since I received them, but my very favorite hair care shampoo and conditioner is as follows:
Buttermilk Shampoo and Conditioner
My hair is highlighted and tends to be extremely dry. It takes a special nourishing and moisturizing shampoo and conditioner to keep my parched hair hydrated. The first thing I noticed when I used the Buttermilk shampoo, was that it smelled so amazing! And then the lather is so luxuriously rich. It felt exhilarating to wash my hair. As I was rinsing, I could actually hear my hair ‘squeaking’ which to me means that this shampoo was doing its job in cleansing my hair. It was leaving zero residue behind!
After rinsing out the shampoo, I actually lightly towel dried my hair before I applied the Buttermilk conditioner so that it would have a better chance of penetrating my damaged hair shaft. The first thing I noticed about this conditioner (besides the delicious fragrance) was how thick, rich and creamy it is. I worked it throughout my hair, and placed a shower cap on my head to keep on while I shaved my legs. This process allows the conditioner time to get the chance to repair the damage in my hair and to fully hydrate it. After rinsing it, and allowing my hair to air dry, I just cannot stop running my fingers through my hair because it is truly soft as silk.
Witch Hazel Shampoo and Conditioner
A calming and clarifying blend of Witch Hazel, Lavender Flower & Coconut Oil gently removes environmental buildup and oil residue from scalp to leave hair shiny and smooth.
I use a lot of different products in my hair, which causes a layer of build-up over time. It is very important to remove that build-up every other shampoo with a clarifying shampoo like Grandpa’s Soap Company’s Witch Hazel formula. I use this shampoo and conditioner duo every other time I wash my hair. It gently breaks down all of the dulling layers of old product from each strand of my hair, deeply cleaning it without disturbing my hair’s natural oils. I feel such an incredible difference after using these products.
The lather is luxuriously foamy, and the conditioner leaves my hair so soft. The Witch Hazel shampoo and conditioner are two of my very favorite beauty essentials.
When my hair looks healthy, I feel great!
Grandpa’s haircare products have suggested retail prices between $8.49 and $9.99, and are available nationally in supermarkets and independent, natural grocery chains.
