Shampoo solid bars made from coconut oil, canola oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, avocado oil, jojoba oil, essential oil.
The shampoo bars come without any plastic bottle, avoiding the use of non-recyclable plastic, and the increase of toxic waste.
The shampoo bars do not include any synthetic chemicals that are dangerous to the human body.
Excerpt from the study:
Methylsulfonylmethane exhibits bacteriostatic inhibition of Escherichia coli, and Salmonella
enterica Kinshasa, in vitro.
Poole TL , Benjamin R , Genovese KJ , Nisbet DJ .
To evaluate antibacterial properties of methylsulfonylmethane (MSM) on Escherichia coli (MDRE21) and Salmonella enterica
serovar Kinshasa (SK132).
Bacterial proliferation analysis was measured spectrophotometrically during log phase growth with 0, 3, 5, 7,
10, 12 and 16% MSM. To assess the mechanism of inhibition, cultures were grown overnight with 0-16% MSM and enumerated on
unmedicated brain-heart infusion agar (BHIA) or BHIA with 0-16% MSM. The long-term viability studies were done to evaluate the
impact of 10% MSM. Absorbance data indicated a dose-dependent inhibition from 0 to 16% MSM. There was no growth of MDRE21 or
SK132 on BHIA in 10-16% MSM. Both strains enumerated on unmedicated BHIA from overnight cultures with 10-16% MSM were able to partially recover.
Recovery after MSM removal may be indicative of a bacteriostatic mechanism of inhibition. The long-term viability
studies illustrated that neither MDRE21 nor SK132 could be rescued from 10% MSM after 5 or 6 days respectively.
Methylsulfonylmethane antibacterial activity may prove useful during pre or postharvest food safety as a disinfectant. The primary benefit being, its clinical safety to humans. Comparisons to other disinfectants would also need to be done to determine if MSM was superior to those already on the market and would be cost effective.

Black Seed Benefits
The International Journal of Pharmaceutical Sciences and Research published an interesting article about black seed benefits to the hair and skin.
ABSTRACT: Nigella sativa seed is one of the spices, which is referred by Prophet Mohammed as a herb of blessing, which can cure everything other than death. Therapeutic potential of Nigella sativa seed has been very well studied by many researchers, but its use in cosmetic science is not very well studied. Nigella sativa seed is intensively studied for its chemical composition. It is reported to contains Thymoquinone, Nigellimine-N-oxide, Nigellicine, Nigellidine, Nigellone, Dithymoquinone, Thymohydroquinone, Thymol, Arvacrol, 6-methoxycoumarin, 7-hydroxy-coumarin, Oxy-coumarin, Alpha-hedrin, Sterylglucoside, Tannins, Flavinoids, Essential fatty acids, Essential amino acids, Ascorbic acid, Iron and calcium. Presence of these natural actives makes Nigella sativa seed as great medicinal herb. Nigella sativa seed has antimicrobial, antioxidant, anti-aging, hair growth promoter, sun protection, anti cancer activity, which make it a novel ingredient for many cosmetic preparations. This review brings the comprehensive compilation of researches on Nigella sativa seed in the area of cosmetics and related fields.
