We thought we'd combine our new mini pouch made from upcycled fabrics with an unwrapped solid shampoo – this time for oily hair! 

Our mini pouch is made from upcycled "rescued" fabrics that were destined for the bin!

If you buy several duos, we'll make sure we send you mini pouches in different designs.

More information

The arrival of our new mini pouch was the perfect occasion to bring out this 100% zero-waste duo! If you want to reduce waste, then you'll love upcycling and unwrapped products – and that's just what you get with this upcycled mini pouch and unwrapped solid shampoo! 

Our mini pouches are made in France, less than 60 miles away from our offices, from upcycled fabrics. They give a second life to materials that were destined for the bin! You can use them to carry your solid cosmetics wherever you go. They're the perfect size for all of our solid cosmetics, and you could even fit two solid shampoos inside!

The fabrics used to make these pouches vary, so every mini pouch is unique!

Our solid shampoo with litsea cubeba is ideal for oily hair. It contains essential oils, so it isn't suitable for pregnant or breastfeeding women. With this little duo, you can buy it unwrapped!

The mini pouch:

Upcycled fabric (cotton, polycotton or opaque polyester), label made from white cotton twill

Solid shampoo with litsea cubeba:

Ingredients: SODIUM COCOYL ISETHIONATE, MOROCCAN LAVA CLAY**, COCOS NUCIFERA OIL*, AQUA, DECYL GLUCOSIDE**, STEARIC ACID**, PALMITIC ACID**, LITSEA CUBEBA FRUIT OIL*, CITRAL***, CITRONELLOL***, GERANIOL***, LIMONENE***, LINALOOL***

* certified organic

** naturally present in the essential oil

About the ingredients: 

Sodium cocoyl isethionate / Decyl glucoside / Lauryl glucoside: gentle surfactants derived from coconut oil, help the product to lather. 

Moroccan lava clay: Rhassoul clay – a volcanic clay with excellent absorbent and softening properties, from the Atlas mountains of Morocco.

Cocos nucifera (coconut) oil: certified-organic coconut oil. Hydrating and nourishing.  

Stearic acid: derived from olive oil, gives the product its solid consistency.

Litsea cubeba fruit oil: essential oil of litsea cubeba, also known as exotic verbena. Contains citral (a component of the essential oil), which helps to control inflammatory reactions on the scalp, and helps to control sebum.

Citral / Limonene: chemical compounds that naturally occur in litsea cubeba essential oil and may be allergenic.

Slow Cosmétique, Cruelty Free & Vegan – Sulphate-free – Handmade in France, 12 months, 55ml

Lather up your solid shampoo in your hands or directly on your hair, then rub it over your head to clean your scalp. After washing your hair, leave the shampoo to dry on a soap holder before slipping it into the mini pouch (which isn't waterproof). By drying it between uses, you'll also make it last longer :)

You can wash your mini pouch by hand, or machine-wash at 30°C. Please note that some pouches may shrink slightly when washed.

This duo is 100% zero waste, as the fabric used for the mini pouch is upcycled, plus the shampoo is unwrapped!

    I feel like my hair hasn't been rinsed properly.

    This can happen sometimes. When your hair is used to chemical products, it tends to "suck up" the chemicals. Because it's not used to natural hair products, it takes a while to adjust and goes through a sort of "detox" process. This explains why it might seem like your hair is badly rinsed. When you switch to a natural shampoo, you have to get through this difficult detox period, but it's worth it in the end! In the meantime, you could always rinse your hair with a vinegar and water solution, or use an apple cider vinegar rinse to solve the problem until it goes away naturally – which it will! 


    I'm worried that by rubbing the shampoo directly over my head, I'm getting my hair tangled.

    No need to panic!

    You don't have to rub the shampoo directly over your hair. You could also rub it between your hands, like a soap, and then apply it!

    We have a little tip too... Lean your head forward so you can really work the shampoo into the roots and spread it over your scalp. There's no need to rub it through the lengths of your hair, as they'll be washed when you rinse the shampoo off!


    How long does the shampoo last?

    This depends on factors such as whether your hair is long, thick, short, etc. However, it should last for as long as two bottles of liquid shampoo. :)


    I use plant-based hair dyes and I wanted to know if your solid shampoos are compatible with them ? I saw that coconut oil was one of the ingredients, and I'd heard that coconut oil can strip hair colour when it's used on dyed hair... 

    Coconut oil does not strip plant-based hair dye from your hair. Quite the opposite ! It's actually recommended that you apply coconut oil to colour-treated hair to hydrate and revitalize it. 

    What's more, our shampoos don't contain sulphates, so they're perfectly compatible with colour-treated hair. :) 


    Do your shampoos contain silicones ? 

    No, there are no silicones in our shampoos !


    How much do your shampoos weigh ?

    Our shampoos weigh approximately 55 grams. 


    What is the pH of your shampoos ?

    Our shampoos have a pH between 5.0 and 6.0. 


    Quelles précautions dois-je prendre avant de l'utiliser ?

    Nos pochouettes sont fabriquées à partir de tissu d'ameublement ou de vêtement destiné à la poubelle. Il y a donc un risque que la pochouette rétrécisse suite au premier lavage. 

    Sa dimension peut donc légèrement changer suite à ce passage en machine. Pour avoir la dimension finale, nous vous conseillons de la laver une première fois avant son utilisation ! :)

    La pochouette n'étant pas imperméable, il est préférable de laisser sécher vos cosmétiques solides avant de les ranger à l'intérieur. Si cela n'est pas possible. Dès votre arrivée, sortez les afin qu'ils puissent sécher.
