The Sea Buckthorn berry is well known to Germanics as a staple of the North Sea’s summertime coastline, and this cold-saponified hair shampoo soap (with its acidic pH of just 6.5) made exclusively from natural raw materials based on castor, coconut, flax and sesame oils cleanses hair gently without irritation of the scalp. It washes away easily and will not dry out your hair.
Valloloko an artisan German soap making firm in the grand Euro tradition of cold-only processing. This is a small production company that keeps quality as job#1. Surfactants, mineral oils, paraffin waxes, and any other ‘bad’ cosmetics “necessities” are eschewed here. This does raise cost, of course, and the big high-end brands like to use them. But you get what you pay for in soap.
Each batch of Valloloko soap’s supremely tested by hyper-anal German master blenders that are part metrologist (hey, measuring stuff is fun), part parfumer. All labor is 100% by hand. Valloloko produces their own raw materials via cold press of raw oil seeds wherever possible! This provides a quite fragrant aroma without using fragrance oil. Lastly, by being exclusively loyal to cold-saponification, Valloloko hard soaps take time to age and fit in with the TSS ethos about just how superior cold-stir soap really is…why aren’t American artisans doing this??
