Why Our Shampoo Bar Ingredients Are Beneficial and Better

Hey you, with the hot bod! You've worked hard to find just the right balance between workouts and cervezas, and it shows. It's time to honor your carefully sculpted temple of tacos with the cleanest shampoo bar around. 

They say cleanliness is next to godliness, after all, and who are we to argue with they? 

Seriously, don't dump strange chemicals on your perfectly soft-but-rough man skin. So many products out there are full of stuff we can't pronounce, but we're smart enough to know it doesn't belong on your head. 

Our men's shampoo bars are made with all organic and natural ingredients, so you won't have to wonder if they cause cancer in lab rats. They don't. If lab rats used our shampoo bars, they would live long, happy lives and smell like they just finished chopping a pile of exotic firewood. 

It's scientifically proven that nobody can resist a man who smells like the forest, but attention from potential shower buddies isn't the only benefit of using our eco-friendly bars. We've selected our ingredients for optimal well-being and mood enhancement. Read on to learn more about the magic of mint and the power of patchouli.

Meet Your Shower Friend With Benefits

Our shampoo bars are great for you and the planet. Which is a good thing, because women love the rugged mountain man selfies you post. Gotta protect those Instagram backgrounds. 

Our packaging is biodegradable, and we never use plastic, so you won't find Grown Ass Man labels littering the ocean. Unlike conventional shampoos, our natural, organic recipes are completely safe to rinse down the drain. They're also very concentrated, so a single disc will last much longer than your average bottle of suds. 

We offer three different blends to choose from, each formulated with conditioning oils, aromatherapeutic scents, and proteins and vitamins to keep your head, facial, and body hair shiny and strong. Kind of like your biceps after crushing it at the gym. 

Essential oils travel through your nose directly to the emotional center of the brain. Their effectiveness is no joke. They have been used around the world for centuries to treat infections, anxiety, mood disorders, and more. 

If you're a sensitive soul with skin to match, we see you. Our bars won't aggravate skin conditions or cause allergic reactions. What they will do is make you feel like a million bucks. Here's why our men's shampoo bars work.

The Basic Ingredients

When we mix our shampoo bars, we start with an organic blend of saponified oils of sunflower, coconut, palm, safflower, and castor. We didn't choose these oils randomly – each one is a scalp care powerhouse. Healthy hair grows from healthy scalps.

Sunflower oil contains vitamin E, a strong antioxidant that can protect your skin from premature aging and wrinkles. Coconut oil is anti-inflammatory and has antibacterial properties. Palm oil is super moisturizing and can relieve skin conditions like psoriasis and eczema. Don't worry, ours is ethically sourced.

The linoleic acid in safflower oil treats flaking, so you can say goodbye to embarrassing dandruff drama. Linoleic acid also slows water loss from the hair shaft. Last but not least, castor oil is known for its ability to restore balance and reduce puffiness. Don't be surprised when your scalp says thanks, bro.

Next, we add vitamin B5 to support your hair's pigmentation, length, and strength. Hydrolyzed oat protein brings the shine, softness, and volume. Healing rosemary extract stimulates circulation and hair growth and soothes itchiness.  

The real party starts when we incorporate a specialty oil and our custom essential oil blends to give each shampoo bar its own unique personality. Choose your favorite or try a combo pack. Pro tip: you're missing out if you don't try the combo pack. 

Mint Condition

Mint Condition is an awakening blend that will leave you feeling ready to kick ass from dawn 'til dusk. If you're not a morning person, or you just have to get up too damn early for work, this one's for you. 

We've added a drizzle of olive oil to lightly condition your locks. Olive oil is great on both salads and sensitive scalps. But you won't start the day smelling like a plate of caprese, because Mint Condition also includes a powerful mix of peppermint, eucalyptus, and rosemary essential oils. This shampoo bar is on a mission to wake you up and get some blood flowing to your brain cells. 

More than a hint of peppermint supports mental function and relieves stress. The fresh, stimulating scent of eucalyptus will fight off afternoon sluggishness better than a cup of coffee (and without the bad breath). Woodsy, herbaceous rosemary will perk you up and have your coworkers wondering why the office smells so manly today.

Chill Out

Home from work, done with the yardwork, and ready for a cold one? Take a shower first and let the Chill Out shampoo bar ease you into the deep relaxation you deserve. Actually, don't let us stop you from having that beer in the shower. Hint: Chill Out pairs well with an IPA. 

This laid-back bar is laced with  avocado oil, an intensive conditioner that brings dry, dull strands back to life. 

Lemongrass, tea tree, and patchouli are like the jam band of essential oils. Close your eyes, breathe deep, and soak up their easygoing vibes. Lemongrass sets the stage by calming your mind and body with its mildly sedative properties.

Tea tree oil balances both brain and skin. Patchouli and sage ease anxiety and add that hard-to-identify earthy smell women can't seem to get enough of. 

Chill Out is best followed by some grill action, a bonfire, or a deep dive into the sofa. We trust your judgment.

Last Call

Consider yourself warned—Last Call will get you noticed. Ladies love a man who smells like he spent the day fly fishing deep in the wilderness. Before the end of the night, someone will probably ask you how to fight a bear. 

If you're grooming yourself for a first date or hitting the pub with your crew, Last Call is your most reliable wingman. This bold bar is infused with jojoba oil to moisturize your scalp and destroy any evidence of dandruff. Go ahead, wear black. We dare you. 

Essential oils of cedarwood, pine, and patchouli send a loud and clear message that you are the kind of man who knows how to start a fire without matches. Your natural habitat is in a cabin, with a bourbon cocktail in your hand. Cassia and clove are spicy and a tad mysterious, just like you. 

This shampoo bar isn't for men who want to be left alone, so get ready to hand out your phone number. Letting your friends in on the secret is optional.

Watch Out for the Other Guys

Mainstream shampoo companies might advertise "manly" scents, but don't be fooled. There's nothing manly about irritating artificial fragrances and harmful chemicals. 

Look out for ingredients such as alcohol, parabens, triclosan, and dimethicone. These compounds will cause drying and hair loss if used for an extended period of time. Triclosan is an endocrine disruptor that can interfere with your reproductive system. 

Some bottled shampoos even contain formaldehyde. Yep, the same formaldehyde scientists use to preserve biological specimens. How is that still legal? We're not sure.

Sodium Laureth Sulfate and Sodium Lauryl Sulfate strip away your hair's natural oils and have been linked to hormone disruption. They also contain traces of dioxin, a carcinogen that interferes with kidney function. 

There's no need to expose your body to dangerous, man-made substances. Ingredients derived from nature are much safer and just as effective. Real men pay attention to what they put on their skin. Bottom line, our shampoo bars are better.

Grown Ass Man shampoo bars shatter the myth that eco-friendly, organic bath products that smell great are only for women. It's time for manly men to enjoy the benefits of natural, therapeutic ingredients. Harsh additives are for wimps.
