Chagrin Valley is a family-owned soap company based in northeastern Ohio. While they no longer make soaps out of their kitchen, they're still as committed to all-natural, GMO- and synthetics-free skincare as they were back in 2001. This is a shampoo bar for anyone who wants to reduce their single-use plastic consumption and/or minimize the bottles in their shower. It lathers up like a traditional shampoo, whether you use it directly-on your hair (just be sure to rinse well,) or create the lather in your hands first. It's made with organic coconut milk (for deep conditioning and moisture) and bamboo charcoal (for stimulating the scalp and adding body and shine). Note that the charcoal can stain lighter-colored washcloths, and while it usually-comes out in the wash, use at your own risk.
