Bath time is a great time to brighten your kids’ day! Show them (and their skin) some extra love with our Orange You Awesome Hair & Everywhere Bar. Coloured naturally with mica, this sweet tangerine-scented bar makes everything just feel… sunnier.
The great thing about the bars is you actually can just hand it over to your kid (unlike a liquid where there’s always that risk it’s all going to disappear down the drain!!).

What is Sodium Coco Isethionate?
This is a very mild, coconut based cleanser. It comes in a fine powder to make it easy to combine into our bars. In the US they call it “baby foam”, which gives you an idea of how wonderful it is! A little science, but bars need to have two slightly different cleansers to be really good. So we have this in combination with Cocamidopropyl Betaine.
What is Cocamidopropyl Betaine?
This is a liquid coconut-based cleanser. It’s known for producing foam quickly, it’s what makes our bars foam up, even thought they’re super gentle.
What is Stearic Acid?
First thing to say, is our Stearic Acid is certified palm free. In our bars it does three things – it makes all the ingredients combine together into a smooth solid bar, secondly it helps make them foam up and be fun, and finally it leaves a lovely silky smooth moisturised feel on skin.
What is Benzyl Alcohol and Dehydroacetic Acid?
These are preservatives. Because our bars have very low pH they need something in them to make sure they don’t get any bacteria or other yukkies growing on them in the damp environment of your bathroom. I know, sounds gross. We use the mildest preservative possible, certified by COSMOS and EcoCert bodies. They’re both less than 0.9% of the bar.
What are CI numbers?
We use mica to colour our bars. We use Mica because it is extremely gentle, will never penetrate the skin barrier and rinses off without staining. We use either synthetic mica, which is the same as the mica you’d find in nature but made in a lab, or natural mica where our supplier is able to illustrate the mica is sourced sustainably and ethically.
