DIY Solid Shampoo & Save The Planet (Join The No Plastic Campaign) In Malaysia

Tuesday, 19 February 2019

Welcome back for the second recipe in our hair care series! 

Today we’re going to make another solid shampoo. A little fun fact, over 552 million shampoo bottles are thrown away yearly, and we believe doing every little thing you can to save this planet counts! 

Whether it’s not using straws or making your own products or like making your own solid shampoo bar- no plastic packaging required when selling, helps change the world. 

This shampoo does everything you’d need a shampoo to do. Gives you great lustrous hair, smell amazing, feel fresh and look gorgeous too. 

Our favourite part about this shampoo its the Three Flower fragrance mix - Ylang Ylang, Rose and Jasmine. We also add in Glycerin to ensure your hair is always moisturized which prevents split ends, breakage and frizzy hair :)

Have fun making it!!

How To Make Solid Shampoo For Dry Scalp

Monday, 18 February 2019

Hi guys, we’re back with a brand new series for lush, gorgeous hair.  This next two weeks im planning to do more on haircare series since we have a lot of skincare already:-) Over the next week ill be writing more articles on how to make and formulate hair care series as well..

Now heres something that im sure you guys will really like! What’s the big deal about this line of products? It’s solid shampoo bars. 

Excited? We are! To begin, we use soap lab’s solid shampoo base made with gentle oils that will cleanse and nourish your scalp. As you know, we carefully formulate our soap bases in SoapLab, so that you don’t have to. 

Next, add on Gardenia Fragrance oil to give your shampoo a little oomph and you feeling like a million $$$. We then add 2 important ingredients to this shampoo bar. Calamine and Glycerin. Calamine soothes your scalp and relieves it from spending hours in air conditioned rooms and it’s amazing if you suffer from dandruff too. Glycerin is a natural conditioner that works to protect both hair and your scalp from dehydration. 

To give this shampoo bar a pop of color, we add in some iron oxide + yellow mica, and voila, all done! 

So go ahead and make it guys! The thing I love the most about this is because we are not using those horrible plastic bottles! Its solid and no ‘packaging’ so you are not only having a great strong detergent free hair wash, you are also saving our planet by not throwing away those plastic bottles after use! Have fun! 

Lye (Sodium Hydroxide) Restrictions In Your Country? What To Do If You Cant Make Cold Process Soap? (CP Soap)

Hi good morning all.

Today i'll be talking about the alternatives you have if you cant make your own CP Soaps. In some country; including Singapore and Malaysia; it's very difficult to get lye (NaOH). In order to get lye (sodium hydroxide) you need licence and a specific workplace to use it because of various reasons by the law.

Due to these restrictions; it can be quite impossible to make any cold process soaps. And since you already know why cold process soap is the superior soap; what do you do then?

How To Make Bath Bomba For Valentines Day: You Are A Bomb!

Friday, 15 February 2019

Hope you’re excited! Have you watched those Youtube videos with colorful bath bombs and wish you can have those too? Instead of buying these expensive and chemical laden bath bombs, you can make it yourself too! Finally guys! After so many requests this one is for you! We are finally making a bath bomb for you! Just coz we love you our readers so much and when else is the best time to express our love to you if not now during valentines week.

The secret to getting all the bubble, is...guess what ? Sodium bicarbonate. Yep that’s it. Next we add in some citric acid and you’ve got your base done. To get some pretty colors, we’ll be using Peach Pink Mica and Sparkle Bronze Mica. This gives a lovely peachy color to your bath that you’ll love!  

We then use Happy Designer Fragrance Oil for the lovely scent and witch hazel to clear acne, and soothe your skin.

This one’s definitely for self-pampering. Have fun!

Caution: lots of trial and errors k. coz if you spray too much with hazel it can 'fizz' that time itself. and if its too little; it just doesnt form. So just like making dough, this is the same: trial and error.

Skin Purging? Does Hyaluronic Cause Acne?

Hi guys.

Today I'll be talking about this phenomenon called the skin purging.
Quite a few of you asked us this like why is it that when you use some products (natural or not); your skin tends to break out?

Well; heres the thing; you might be going through this condition called 'skin purging'. Some also calls it 'breakout' and some just calls it acne attack. Whatever its called; basically skin purging happens when you use a product and all of a sudden you have big 'pimples'!

Now if you ask us; not all product causes this. sometimes it is breakout because of hormone etc; but if you product contains any of these ingredients that causes 'skin turnover' like Hyaluronic acid, Salicylic acid, Lactic Acid, Glycolic Acid, Niacinamide or Retinol; all these will cause skin purging.
