Shampoo bar

I had the idea for a shampoo bar for my travelling husband, just as the shaving soap. Although most hotels have free shampoo, you never know what you'll get. I made this shampoo bar with many precious oils as avocado oil, wheat germ oil, castor oil, jojoba oil, sheabutter and cocoa butter. It is scented with peppermint and eucalyptus EO, for a fresh wake-up on the morning. I have used it and it gives a very nice, soft foam and leaves the hair squeaky clean. It's also nice to use on the skin, so ideal for backpackers and light travellers as well: one soap for the whole body.
Ho avuto l'idea per questo sapone per il mio marito viaggiatore, come il sapone da barba. Anche se la maggioranza degli hotel ha sempre shampo nel bagno, non si sa mai dove si va a finire. Per fare questa saponetta-shampo ho usato oli preggiati come l'olio di avocado, di germe di grano, di ricino, di jojoba, burro di karité e burro di cacao. L'ho profumato con essenze di menta piperita e eucalipto, per un risveglio fresco al mattino. Ho testato la saponetta sui miei capelli: mi ha dato una bella schiuma morbida e lascia i capelli freschi e puliti. Si può anche usare sulla pelle e perciò è ideale per chi ama viaggiare leggero: un sapone per tutto il corpo.
Ik kreeg het idee voor deze zeep voor mijn reizende echtgenoot, net zoals de scheerzeep. Ook al hebben de meeste hotels gratis shampoo (en douchegels), met de hedendaagse crisis weet je nooit waar je terechtkomt. Om deze shampoo-zeep te maken heb ik waardevolle oliën gebruikt zoals avocado-olie, tarwekiemolie, ricinusolie, jojoba-olie, karitéboter en cacaoboter. Ik heb hem gegeurd met EO van pepermunt en eucalyptus, om fris en monter wakker te worden. Ik heb hem zelf uitgeprobeerd en hij gaf een zalig zacht schuim (zelfs op vet haar) en maakt het haar helemaal proper. Ik was een beetje bang dat het moeilijk uit te kammen zou zijn, maar zelfs dat ging vlot bij mijn halflange haar. De shampoo-zeep kan ook op het lichaam gebruikt worden, wat het de ideale reisgenoot maakt van rugzak-reizigers of al wie graag licht reist.

Skin products for specific skin types have been available for a number of years now, and products like shaving soaps, shaving creams, and facial skin care which are formulated for men are slowly gaining popularity. However, before choosing what products to use on their faces, men should start with the basic issue, and that is to know specific skin type first.
