Solid shampoo bars and conditioners made in Ireland using natural, organic and vegan ingredients. Free from plastic, sulphates, artificial colours and fragrances

5 reasons why you should use an Organicules' shampoo bar

1) Each solid shampoo bar is ph balanced. The ph of shampoo, including shampoo bars,  is very important for the long term health of your hair. Our blog post explains why. So there will be no transition period, no greasy residue and no faffing about with a follow up apple cider vinegar rinse. Just soft, healthy, shiny hair from the get go.

2) Organicule's shampoo bars are made from the best organic and plant derived ingredients. The use of organic oils and essential oils ensures that each shampoo bar is free from chemical impurities. We do not use palm oil in any of our products. Our shampoo bars are free from sulphates, SLS, SLES, parabens, artificial fragrances, silicone's and colourants.

3) Our ingredients are eco-friendly, vegan friendly and biodegradable.

4 ) Because our shampoo bars are super-concentrated versions of traditional shampoo (minus water and synthetic ingredients and chemical additives), they are cost-effective, lasting 3-4 times longer than a bottle of shampoo. Washing your hair with a shampoo bar also saves you time. Lather up, rinse and you're done.

5) No plastic packaging. Our solid shampoo bars are sold in either a bio-degradeable, compostable bag or an aluminium tin, that doubles as a drainer and is a great option for travelling or the gym bag.

Solid conditioner bars containing natural, organic, vegan, eco-friendly ingredients to condition your hair without leaving a greasy residue. Just smooth the bars along strands of hair to de-tangle, smooth and condition, leaving your hair soft, shiny and manageable. Organicules' conditioner bars are a great zero waste alternative to traditional plastic bottles of conditioner. Our conditioner bars come in a handy travel aluminium tin or a biodegradable glassine bag. Our solid conditioner bars are a cost alternative to traditional conditioner, they are super concentrated formulations, minus harsh chemical additives, artificial colourants, parfums and silicones. Each natural conditioner bar lasts 3-4 months.

Everything you ever wanted to know about natural deodorants

Deodorant FAQ's

Why use natural deodorant ?

The skin is the largest organ in the body and acts as a protective barrier to the inside and outside of the body.

Products applied to the skin can be absorbed into the bloodstream.

The average woman puts 200+ chemicals on their body every day, without even realizing it.

Traditional deodorant contains an array of chemicals with associated health concerns, including:

artificial fragrances


parabens - the main concern regarding the use of parabens in cosmetics is their potential to act as endocrine disruptors, interferring with natural hormone systems [1]



propylene glycol

benzyl salicylate

You won't find any of these ingredients in our

 natural deodorants


Deodorant is the one product that we all use on a daily basis, so switching to natural deodorant is an easy way to start decreasing your bodies exposure to toxins.

All of our products are made with eco-friendly, natural, organic and vegan ingredients that cause no harm to your body while being gentle on the planet and our waterways.

Will natural deodorant stop me sweating?

The short answer is No. Natural deodorant will not stop you sweating, however, our deodorant formulations contain ingredients which absorb moisture, including natural clays, cornstarch and charcoal, so they will keep your armpits drier. But to fully answer this question, we need to understand the difference between an antiperspirant and a deodorant. Deodorant and antiperspirant both help fight body odour (BO), but they do so in different ways.

How does antiperspirant work?

Antiperspirants fight BO by reducing the production of sweat through blocking the sweat pores. To achieve this, aluminum or zirconium-based compounds are used to form a polymeric plug that physically blocks sweat from escaping from sweat glands.



So, the primary role of antiperspirants is to stop you sweating, the secondary role is to stop body odour.


But sweating is not a bad thing. In fact, sweating plays many important roles.

* As sweat evaporates, it cools the body and thus plays an important role in regulating body temperature.

* Sweat also plays a role in removing toxins from our bodies. In fact, while the excretory function of sweat has previously been considered negligible compared to the kidney, recent studies challenge this notion. There is evidence that several toxic elements and xenobiotics may be preferentially excreted through human sweat[1,2}.

Some studies report that the excretion of arsenic, cadmium, lead and mercury in sweat matches or exceeds excretion by the kidneys[3].

Many pharmaceutical drugs are also excreted via sweat and the role of sweat patch technology in monitoring illicit drug use is based on dozens of studies examining amphetamines, cocaine, cannabis, opiates and associated metabolites excreted in sweat[4].

Given all this information, I can't see how using antiperspirants and blocking sweat glands could be beneficial to overall health and wellness.

How does deodorant work?

Traditional deodorants fight BO by targeting and killing the odour-producing bacteria. To do this, traditional deodorants use anti-bacterial agents such as parabens and triclosan. Both of these chemical classes raise health concerns.

In contrast, natural deodorants convert the odour producing fatty acids in sweat to sodium salts which are odorless thus blocking further metabolism and release of nasty smelling thioalcohols.
