10 Natural Shampoo Bars & Beauty Bars That Will Change Your Morning Routine


Natural shampoo bars are one of the very best products you can add to your sustainable routine - both for yourself, and for the planet. Not all natural shampoo bars are created equal, however, so I’m here to show you the best natural shampoo bars (and other beauty bars) for YOU!

I’m B.O.B, also known as “Bars over Bottles.” And I’ve created a line of solid beauty bars made from gorgeous natural ingredients that are all so beneficial for your hair and body. 

But the best natural shampoo bars aren’t just about your hair. They also keep the environment in mind. That’s why I created the first 100% plastic-free beauty company in Brazil. My plastic-free shampoo bars offer a little something for everyone - and I can't wait to share all about them.

But why should you use natural shampoo bars and beauty bars? And which ones are the best for your hair and skin type? Let me help you answer those questions! 

Why you should make the switch to natural shampoo bars

Bars Over Bottles natural shampoo bars

Many traditional liquid shampoo products are ravishing your locks - and the beautiful Earth we live on. Strong chemicals like silicones and sulfates will clog and then strip your hair over and over in a harsh (and seriously unnecessary) cycle. 

That’s not to mention all the plastic bottles traditional beauty products come in. They fill up our landfills, where they can take up to 450 years to decompose

Simply speaking? Our society’s hair care regimen is not sustainable. 

That’s where natural shampoo bars come in. Every plastic-free shampoo bar you purchase from B.O.B prevents two plastic bottles from being unleashed on the environment. They are also made with clean and natural ingredients, so they are free from harsh chemicals that can damage your hair. 

Using compostable packaging, and a water-free formula, my plastic-free shampoo bars give you the most concentrated product possible, which means your product lasts longer - without any of the waste. 

So if you’re looking for how to reduce plastic use, trying my low poo or no poo shampoo products is a good way to start.

Of course, I offer so much more than just shampoo! I want to provide you with a fully plastic-free self-care experience. My goal is to remove all single use plastic from your bathroom! So let me introduce some of my favorite natural beauty bars that I’m sure you’ll love.
