Rhassoul Clay, mined from the Atlas Mountains of Morocco, has been used for over 1400 years as a soap, shampoo, and skin conditioner. It contains a high percentage of silica, magnesium, potassium, and calcium, and its extraordinary ability to absorb oil and impurities from both the skin and hair makes it more effective than other clays for cleansing. Avocado oil and avocado butter have a nutritive, soothing, softening effect on the skin and are especially beneficial for very dry, aging skin as it increases the production of collagen. Avocado is a natural humectant which locks in moisture, while fatty acids give hair shine and silky texture. Avocado oil is a natural solution to replenish chemically treated hair with the nourishment it needs to recover and flourish. Frizzy hair also benefits from avocado oil, as it relaxes chaotic strands.
We also decided to add some aloe to this bar, why? Well, Aloe vera contains something called proteolytic enzymes which repairs dead skin cells on the scalp. It's fabulous for skin because it's rich in vitamin C, E and beta carotene which nourishes skin and scalp deeply. Also, due to its antifungal and antiviral properties, it prevents itching and reduces dandruff and flaking, it also has very potent anti-inflammatory properties which help reduce redness and inflammation. As for the essential oils in this shampoo bar, they start with a juicy, invigorating, citrus blend with a hint of old world bergamot to give it a mature ending. Needless to say, put that all together and you have a wonderful shampoo and body bar!

If you've never used a solid shampoo bar in your hair, you may wonder "how do I do that?" It's easy. Just get your hair wet, take the bar and rub it all over your scalp and hair. Put the bar down and work it into a wonderful lather. You may find that the first time you use a shampoo/body bar in your hair it feels different. Using natural ingredients is not going to give you the same feeling chemically laden choices do because the natural oils are not being stripped away. In addition, your hair may require a transition process before it is fully free of all the other chemicals and residues from prior hair products. You can read more about this transition process HERE.

This is so moisturizing! It was great for my hair and body.
I am absolutely in love with my shampoo bar!! This was the first time I tried shampoo bars and I did so much research to find the cleanest brand. There was no question AVNS won that category by a long shot. Then they won because they offer 5oz bars instead of 2oz like most others. Then they won on the price. I have very oily hair and struggle to find hair products so I was nervous and kind of negative about whether or not it would work. Well, I used it ONE time and I was never turning back. My hair has never lasted so long without being oily. It doesn't have any residue or waxy feel leftover after showering, it smells amazing, feels great, and moisturizes my scalp- which usually flakes with other shampoos. I was shocked and amazed and I have recommended AVNS to everyone I know. I also used the baking soda trick (I love that they offer so many blog posts and tips, especially since I was a first time user) and the Lavender Mint hair rinse. Another amazing product I highly recommend. I was getting so many compliments on my hair and people asked what I was doing. I was happy to say "only AVNS!" If you're on the fence, just go for it. It's worth it. Thank you AVNS for making clean products that actually work.
AWESOME , GREAT SMELL, WILL BUY AGAIN
This was the first shampoo bar I tried from this company and I loved it so much! I had been trying out other shampoo bars from other companies and they just weren't cutting it for me, and they were pretty expensive. This one was amazing! It had a pleasant scent and did wonders for my hair, even though my hair is thin and gets oily quickly. I only need to wash my hair every 2-3 days with this bar, and it leaves my hair super soft! It even helps out my rosacea on my face a little thanks to the rhassoul clay! I will be trying a different bar though to see how it works on my hair, just so I can try out a lot of different kinds! :)
I have tried low poo, no poo, and even famous brand shampoo bars before, and sadly, it just wasn't happening for me. Or so I thought. Then I discovered, quite by accident, AVNS. Their descriptions of their soaps seemed so tempting, I just couldn't resist one more try to see if I could finally do this thing I so desperately wanted to do - switch over to using soap and ditch the shampoo & conditioner forever! I won't lie, it has been a TOUGH transition. Fortunately it's only lasted about 2 weeks, but at first my hair felt like straw and it was so tangled and awful. However, I promised myself that I'd stick it out for 1 month solid and then I could go back to my regular routine. I just want to thank you, Rhassoul soap, for being my very first soap on my journey to being poo-free. You have liberated me from my wastefulness - I used to use a shampoo bottle per week and a conditioner bottle every 2 weeks. My scalp itched ALL the time. I had little bumps on the backs of my thighs and arms and butt that I thought would never go away. I had chronic athlete's foot for which I tried EVERYTHING to make go away - I wondered if I would continue having it for the rest of my life. You, Rhassoul soap, immediately began to relieve all these skin problems, and you made me feel clean for the first time in years. My pits are even free from BO, which I thought was a permanent thing too! It was tough love, RS, but we got through it, and it's just getting better all the time. Now I'm hooked on soap for hair and body for life. I'll never go back to s&c, thanks to you! Rhassoul soap, I'm so glad I found you and I'm so glad I found AVNS!!
I have been using natural products for several years now, this shampoo bar is by far the best I have tried.
This ended up being a free sample in my last order and I LOVE it. It works great on my fine hair. It is nice and soft but not weighed down. My husband is not going to be happy that I will be buying MORE shampoo bars.
When my last order of soap, etc. arrived there was a free sample of Rhassoul & Avocado soap. I immediately washed my hands with it and fell in love. Can't wait to try it as a shampoo. I've been reading up on rhassoul and think it might be the perfect thing for my face. My husband used it for his shower today and was very pleased. I will definitely be ordering this with my next order. My bar is much darker in color than the one in the picture, though.
I have used this bar exclusively all winter. When I read that it was useful for helping with dry skin on the face, I tried it. The dry patches are almost gone, due to the nutrients in the clay and the mixture of oils. The rosemary extract and the mix of citrus oils gives the bar a clean, fresh-smelling scent.
