Experience true food for your hair and skin with real, nutrient-dense, traditionally handcrafted soap made with old-fashioned ingredients. Our artisanal shampoo soaps are handmade with carefully curated local, grass-fed, pasture-raised, and organic ingredients – proudly sourced from small family farms and homegrown here in the USA. What we can’t source locally, we seek the highest quality: certified organic, minimally processed, and fair-trade ingredients to feed your hair and skin from the outside-in. No detergents or surfactants are used in any of our shampoos.
When washing properly, our basic unscented formula is suitable for all hair types used as-needed with an optional conditioner. Some scents and additional ingredients on top of our basic formula may alter results for each individual.

Top 3 Tips for Beginners:

  1. Please keep in mind that scent information in this product’s scent tab is based on majority feedback.
  2. Beginners, we recommend trying our unscented shampoo soaps first for the freshest, cleanest, and most simple start. Beginners will also want to educate themselves on the possibility of a short detox period and the correct washing technique.
  3. Our All-In-One Shampoo – Body – Shaving soap bars are also suitable for regular body washing, face washing (facial soap directions here), and shaving (shaving directions here). Our ingredients are LOW on the comedogenic scale – so your pores are nourished and cleansed, but never clogged.

Ingredient Details (read full ingredients list in this product’s ingredients tab)

Apple Cider Vinegar

Organic Apple Cider Vinegar can support the natural biome of the scalp. It’s known for antimicrobial properties, in the form of acetic acid, and can help break down the buildup of oil and dead skin cells, which helps stave off excess fungal and bacterial growth that can cause major problems like itchiness, dryness, irritation, dandruff, and infection for your scalp. ACV can restore shine and weightlessness to hair while also cleansing and rebuilding scalp health.
As stated above, some dryness can be caused by fungal and bacterial growth, which is the result of a dirty scalp. So, if you have an oily or combination scalp you will most likely benefit from apple cider vinegar. The cleansing capabilities of apple cider vinegar not only get our hair and scalp squeaky clean, but they also help to restore luster and shine to dull tresses. Once again, the acetic acid in apple cider vinegar is the main reason for this benefit: breaking down the accumulation of pore-clogging oils, dead skin cells, and styling products that result in dull, lifeless hair. Say goodbye to grease and hello to happy hair days ahead!



Pasture-Raised, Pure, Hand-Rendered USA Lard feeds your hair and skin extra-nourishing balanced fatty acids and the world’s highest Vitamin D3 content, second only to cod liver oil. Lard has been used in haircare since medieval times for hair growth and hair health management. Our lard is carefully hand-rendered to keep its precious rare nutrients in-tact. Learn more here



Local, Raw, Farm-Fresh, Grass-fed, Hand-Cultured Buttermilk to feed your hair the perfect food – high in essential vitamins, minerals, proteins, and fatty acids. Full-fat Jersey cow buttermilk is higher than goat milk in lactic acid and has the same moisturization content. The famously beautiful Egyptian Queen Cleopatra was a wise proponent, bathing in fresh buttermilk daily. Learn more here


Babassu Oil

Certified Organic Babassu Oil provides an extra foamy lather to build mounds of thick bubbles. This makes cleansing your hair an easier task without using pore-clogging palm or coconut oils. Babassu oil also helps maintain the hardness of your shampoo soap while in use and makes the bar last as long as possible in wet environments.


Olive Oil

Certified Organic, Cold-Pressed, Extra-Virgin Olive Oil has been used for thousands of years to make the best soaps in the world and is one of the major components of our shampoo bars. Olive oil provides a rich, smooth, silky shine to hair shafts while also retaining a mild, gentle cleanse. Olive oil is unique in that it’s very moisturizing, but not heavy.


Castor Oil

Certified Organic, Hexane-Free Castor Oil has been used for centuries to help heal damaged skin while also restoring new hair growth.* Also known as the “Palm of Christ”, its many priceless uses have yet to be overshadowed by any other known oil. Castor oil also helps to provide a thick, robust, and stable lather, while additionally strengthening the hair shafts and reducing split ends.


Jojoba Oil

Certified Organic Golden Jojoba Oil is actually a type of liquid plant wax that is claimed to be very similar to our skin’s sebum, providing a light moisturization without clogging pores. Jojoba oil has been very useful for haircare professionals, lending extra shine, strength, and manageability to hair health.


Abyssinian Oil

Abyssinian Oil is very similar to Argan oil but shown to be better in some ways. From multiple scientific studies, Abyssinian oil has been shown to provide superior protection against hair breakage and heat damage in professional salon settings. Shine and manageability are also markedly improved when incorporating Abyssinian oil into one’s haircare routine.


Kaolin Clay

Kaolin Clay helps detox your hair from the daily grime and air pollution from modern day living while also soothing and nourishing the scalp with trace minerals. This natural earthen clay assists with dandruff and encourages hair growth as well. For shaving, it lends an extra silky-smooth experience, but if a nick does occur – it helps stop and repair bleeding quickly. Just lather our soap on the area you need to shave and shave as you would normally (full shaving directions here).


Fragrance Oils

Phthalate-Free and Paraben-Free Fragrance Oils are included for a familiar and comforting scent. Did you know that most body care shoppers make their purchase decisions based solely on scent satisfaction? The olfactory system is directly related to emotions and memories, which is why scents are such an important factor for many. Please keep in mind that not including phthalates and parabens will reduce the scent hold, decreasing the linger time and strength compared to what many are used to with store-bought products. Learn more about our safer fragrance oils HERE and read about this product’s scent and scent strength in the product’s scent tab.

Store in a room-temperature, dry place out of direct sunlight.

We recommend using within 1 year of first use for best results, as scents and contents fade and break down faster over time once disturbed.

  • Hair Growth – Our shampoo bars tend to cause faster and thicker hair growth. As a side-effect, more frequent root colorings/treatments may be needed for colored/treated hair.
  • Colored & Treated Hair – Our shampoo bars tend to have no effect on the shade of permanently colored hair or texture treatments. However, semi or demi-permanent hair-colorings or texture treatments can wash out faster due to the vigorous washing method required for a natural shampoo soap lather. We ask you to weigh your priority of healthier, thicker and faster-growing hair with your semi-permanent hair treatments. Please consider a more permanent hair color shade if you do need to color your hair.
  • More Curly/Textured Hair – Our shampoo bars are sulfate-free and totally natural, therefore they will strengthen the natural disulfide bonds in your hair, which will bring out your natural hair texture. Your natural hair texture usually has more volume, curl/texture, and definition than what you were getting with detergent or surfactant shampoo products.
  • It often takes more time and effort to use natural shampoo bars, but it’s well worth it in the end. Not only do you end up with more naturally nourished hair, you also end up with a cleaner environment!

On average, 1 shampoo soap will last most experienced users around 2 weeks of daily use, or about 14 washes on average.

Hair length, thickness, texture, and level of oil/grease/dirt to cleanse will affect this number. The longer, thicker, dirtier, and more textured your hair is, the more you will need to apply for a good wash.
When you first start using shampoo soaps you will go through them a lot faster than after you adjust – this is due to the detox/adjustment period for most beginners. Here is an article about this if you are interested:
Another beginner’s adjustment is not properly washing (not applying and lathering enough), which causes soap residue in certain places and feels much like the detox symptoms. Here is our article about how to wash properly:

    The Smell is Amazing!!!!

    Courtney Robles (verified owner)

    Not only does it smell amazing but my hair has never done as well with a natural product as it does with the shampoo bars! After 7 washes I could wear my hair down and curled!!! I could tell there was definitely a detox period I was going through which was an amazing thing!!!! I never really believed there was really a detox period with natural products I just thought it was a gimmick…but now I KNOW it is true! At first my hair was heavy and weighted down from scalp to tips, and it seemed to down the more washes it went through until the tips of my hair were the only waxy and heavy part. Then…bam my whole hair was clean and manageable! I also started using a lemon juice rinse (1/2 c. Juice to 1 & 1/2 c. Water) after my shampooing and it gets my hair even softer! Wish this was the first natural product I had tried because I’ve spent soooooo much money it’s ridiculous! Will never go bad to conventional shampoo and conditioner ever again. And the apple smell is beautiful! I’ve received compliments and my hubby even likes it. And there hasn’t been too many products he’s really liked. Amazing!!!

    I am black with curly and coily hair and can’t tolerate commercial products anymore. I’m in to keeping things simple and also like to try new things that are all natural. I use this as a shampoo bar and it works very well in keeping my Curls clean and hydrated. I use most animal based products and it’s changing my life. Cdanielle504

    This is the best shampoo bar I have ever used. I have gone through several bars now and don’t think I will ever stop. I have really fine oily hair. For a while I was also experiencing a tremendous amount of hair loss. I used to have to wash my hair daily with conventional shampoos and dry shampoo within hours as my hair would become oily and flat. This shampoo has helped me reduce the amount of washes per week, my hair feels full and my waves have come back. My baby hairs also growing a lot. I used to get pretty bad eczema around my hairline and I also stopped seeing that when I began using this shampoo. I recommend it to all my friends and family. It’s been such a life saver and has helped me gain so much confidence. I also would like to mention that it smells absolutely amazing! It isn’t over powering and lingers in your hair. If you’re thinking about getting this, do it!

    All of the soap bars that I’ve tried (this scent and a sample) have been so great for my hair. I wash my hair everyday and the shampoo doesn’t dry my hair or scalp out. My hair has gotten thicker and I also have new hair growth. Looking forward to trying the other shampoo bars!

    I purchased 4 sample-size soap/shampoos to see which one I will love the most and which one will become my “go-to” bar. The Apple Cider bar has a crisp, fresh light scent that doesn’t overpower. My hair feels clean and light. (I paired it with the unscented conditioner bar – SO nice!) My hair feels and smells great and I feel good knowing how much healthier this is for my hair. I can’t wait to try the others.

    The scent of this bar was amazing, but after about 3-4 uses I noticed that it felt like it was leaving my hair stringy. After chatting with Mariah we concluded that my hair may prefer different oils. Which makes sense because everyone’s hair is different. And I think my hair doesn’t like apple. But I still recommend the shampoo bars! This one just wasn’t a good fit for my hair sadly.

    As someone with thicker, curly, African American hair I can also approve of this shampoo bar for our hair type. I love this shampoo bar. I have always struggled trying to find a shampoo that will cleanse but won’t dry my hair out….this is it. Another great product by Perma-Earth. I would buy all these shampoo bars if I could. Makes my hair feel so clean and light and fresh without feeling dry. The best feeling ever.

    Breanna Clawson: I cannot rave about this soap enough! It does WONDERS for my hair. It enhances my natural wave and allows me to go several days without oil build up. I used to use a custom shampoo that I would need to wash every other night. With this, I wash once, maybe twice a week and I don’t even need dry shampoo to get me through the off days! I get over a month out of each bar which is substantially cheaper than the $25/bottle stuff I was getting! Also, I could eat it it smells so good!

    I used the previous version of this bar which had a cinnamon stick in it. I’m so happy that this version does not. The cinnamon stick was a nice touch, but having more soap for the money is always preferable. This one smells lovely, definitely gives you an apple cider smell and I feel like it cleans my hair really well. The bright colors are really cheerful and the stem and the leaf adds to the magic.

    This was my first ever lard shampoo bar. I was amazed at how well my hair adapted to it. I also had an unexpected result: So many new baby hairs! And I don’t have a problem with hair loss. I have oily hair that needed to be washed every 24 hours or it was an oily mess. After using this, I was able to extend it to every 48 hours. My hair has never looked and felt healthier!
