This unique shampoo bar features white kaolin “China” clay, the most gentle of all the clays and recommended for all skin types, especially dry, aging skin. Sometimes used as a hair masque to breathe life back into dry, brittle hair, China clay is also ideal for sensitive skin and for removing toxins. It contains silica, a natural ingredient that provides slip and shine to the hair shaft.
We’ve added natural silk protein which contains 18 different amino acids that are a very close match to the chemical composition of human skin and hair. First the silk penetrates the hair shaft and skin, and as it dries it imparts a silky soft shine and smooth texture you will love! The oil line up in this bar is fabulous: mango butter, apricot and almond oils, and organic jojoba.
The final touch on this bar is the exotic scent of ylang ylang, an expensive, sophisticated floral essential oil used widely in perfumery. A touch of pink grapefruit adds a bit of sweetness. This shampoo bar is a good choice for extra dry or textured hair. It also makes boat loads of lather; a perfect choice for shaving!
Ingredients: saponified oils of organic coconut, organic sunflower, castor bean, mango butter, organic sustainable palm, apricot, and organic jojoba, white kaolin clay, silk peptides, rosemary oil extract, and essential oils of ylang ylang and pink grapefruit.

I was planning on using it as a body/shaving bar to begin with, but I wasn't as pleased with the results on my hair, as compared with the latte brunette shampoo bar. It would probably work great on blonde hair. As far as a shaving & body bar, it's wonderful. It has a great lather. Since I use the latte brunette on my hair, and since I love the body-only bars for their moisturizing properties, I probably won't keep getting a third bar just for shaving. That kind of defeats the purpose of these bars being all-in-one, at least for me. Otherwise, I would keep buying this bar, as I love the scent!
Great for the body but did leave my hair with a film. Smells delicious
Smells Great! Awesome lather and 'feel' but don't love as a shampoo. Wonderful for a body soap but left my hair feeling 'heavy'.
I've used the lavender buttermilk and bella rose bars but this is my new favorite. It lathers up so much and my hair really feels squeaky clean. I also noticed that it makes my hair stay clean longer and gives it lots of volume. Would definitely recommend it for any type of hair.
This bar has become my favorite that Apple Valley offers! From the moment you pick it up you can immediately feel how soft it is. A true treat in the shower!
Once our family switched to all natural soaps we went crazy trying all the different options available from Apple Valley! I have color treated, fine hair- medium volume. This soap and the Lavender Buttermilk were the best for my hair out of all the ones I tried. Others required an ACV rinse after a few days as my hair got heavy and didn't appear as clean. My two favorites are the perfect combination of moisture/clean so my hair isn't dry or crazy staticky but looks shiny and has great body.
this is such a lovely soap with a nice feminine scent , i looked it immediately a have really look hair and since switching to bar shampoos , they lost a bit on volume this shampoo gave after the first wash already a lot more body to the hairs
