I have to admit, I go a little bonkers over this shampoo bar. Have you ever jumped into a cold lake after a hot sauna? Cuz' here's your chance to do it while keeping your feet firmly planted in the shower, which is my way of pulling off this feat. You get all the the cool, refreshing, and invigorating sensations you're looking for with none of the sweat or the shock.
(Psst. Keep the tingly feeling going with our coordinating Matcha Mint Body Polish. Makes a perfect pair after a hard work out—if you're into that kind of thing—which I'm most definitely not. Can someone pass the cookies?)
Even though our Peppermint Tea Tree shampoo bar feels great on scalp and skin, the main benefit of this bar is the health it can help restore to both hair and scalp. Nourishment and restorative properties from the specifically chosen carrier oils plus added healing from the essential oil blend.
Some of the benefits, but not limited to, are with ingredients such as Coconut oil which is a super-oil full of naturally present antioxidants, it is an excellent anti-fungal, anti-inflammatory and antibacterial. Olive oil which is packed with anti-aging antioxidants and hydrating squalene, making it superb for hair, skin, and nails. Jojoba oil is a natural anti-fungal, antibacterial and anti-inflammatory, its properties keep the scalp clean and healthy. It can also prevent hair loss and thinning caused by the clogged hair follicles as it dissolves and clears these blockages and promotes the development of new hair cells, which can lead to hair growth. Shea butter strengthens your skin by stimulating the production of collagen, it helps make your skin more supple, more alive, nourished and radiant. We could keep going, but you probably get the idea.
For the essential oils, both peppermint and tea tree essential oils have antibacterial, antiviral, anti-inflammatory properties. Peppermint adds a cooling effect which can help eliminate the urge to scratch, while tea tree thanks to it's fantastic anti-fungal properties is great for fighting dandruff. Tea tree oil fights the fungus that causes dandruff without drying out the scalp, it can also serve as a natural conditioner and eliminate problems that lead the scalp to flake.
Ingredients: saponified oils of organic coconut, organic olive, castor bean, organic sunflower, organic sustainable palm, organic jojoba, organic shea nut butter, and mango seed butter, rosemary oil extract, and essential oils of organic peppermint and organic tea tree.

I have been doing baking soda and ACV for hair care for a few years, and while it got rid of my dandruff, I have started to feel like my hair was getting less healthy. I am trying to cut out as much plastic waste as I can, and this was a great solution! I have been using it for about two weeks and dandruff has not returned, and my hair is looking great so far!
My husband refuses to use anything else! We were not happy with a different soap brand we were using, so we switched to AVNS because of the great reviews. When we switched, I went a bit overboard with ordering samples because I was so excited for all the different scents. We tried this bar first and my husband loved it so much that he won't use anything else - shampoo, soaping, and shaving! The scent is amazingly refreshing and it permeates the entire bathroom; perfect for the mornings.
I used a big name anti dandruff shampoo for more than 40 years - I bought the Peppermint Tea Tree Shampoo Bar and tried it out - I bought it to make it easier to travel but now I like the removal of the chemicals and the plastic container ...but the important thing is it works really well (and is easier to travel with)
I love that this peppermint tea tree soap has helped with my itchy scalp and welts on my scalp. I also use the herbal vinegar hair rinse too it works wonderfully. All the body bars smell fabulous.
Sometime I would get an itchy scalp and since using the peppermint tea tree bar my scalp feels so much better and my hair is silky soft to boot!!! Love the fact it is one less plastic bottle I need to buy.
This is my favorite shampoo bar. I have fine, fragile blond hair and have had an annoying scalp itch for years. The itchy scalp is what caused me to try the Peppermint Tea tree soap. For starters I definitely had a more rough transition than some reviewers. I was surprised because I have not used shampoos with harsh chemicals for years. That was a a little frustrating, but I also did not start with this soap bar and wonder if I had perhaps I would have gotten through it faster than 6 wks. Anyway, this bar smells great and is invigorating and a little tingly on my scalp which feels good. I try to leave it on for 30 seconds on just the scalp area then gently scrub the ends. I do this twice and generally still do a vinegar rinse. I have always had an oily scalp and dry ends. This bar does not dry out my ends and it makes my hair so shiny and soft (doesn't feel soft when it is wet) The itch on my scalp is not gone entirely but has definitely reduced to barely there. At this stage with this bar I can go 2 full days then wash on the morning of the 3rd day.
My daughter really enjoys using this bar. She does not like "girly" scents, so this one is perfect. She really likes the minty smell.
I can tell my hair feels cleaner since I started using the shampoo bar.
I love this and pretty much every bar of soap from AVNS. I am doctor required to scrub my eye lashes and lids with tea tree soap. I love that I have found one that is all natural!! Thank you AVNS!
I have suffered from an angry, oily, sensitive scalp (seborrheic dermatitis) for many years and have long very thick wavy hair. I have tried shampoo soaps from other companies, but they irritated my scalp. Well, last night I tried your peppermint tea tree shampoo bar and guess what? Your shampoo soap did NOT irritate my sensitive scalp or my face! After coming out of the shower, my scalp did NOT start irritating me as it usually does after shampooing. I am now wondering, in the past was I using too harsh shampoo bars from other companies that was making my sensitive scalp worse and drying out my skin? My guess is yes, probably. Well, guess what? Now I'm sticking to just Apple Valley shampoo bars and soaps, which my scalp and hair prefer! This morning (after shampooing last night) my scalp is still clear and not bothering me at all (no itching, redness, or soreness) and my hair is shiny, full of body, and so soft - I can't stop touching it! Thank you so much Natalie, for this AMAZING shampoo bar! Finally, I found the solution and I'm so thrilled!
