Conditioner Bar

natural deodorant formulation class - The Formulators LAB

Conditioner Bar Formulation Class


When developing this solid conditioner formulation it took several tries. Finally discovered an ingredient that made all the difference that I do not see in any conditioner bars. It really helps to penetrate the hair, add conditioning, soft comb-through, add shine and does not weigh the hair down. This conditioner bar formulation pairs beautifully with the shampoo bar formulations. There is not another one like this on the market or any formulations like this.

Shampoo bars are all the rage now and the market is going to keep increasing substantially due to the demand for sustainable hair care products and reducing plastic waste. They reduce plastic waste by not being in a plastic bottle, Most shampoo plastic containers are not recycled and end up in the landfill. This class is on shampoo bars made with solid surfactants. The solid surfactants are derived using green chemistry with renewable and sustainable ingredients.

The shampoo bar formulation has a good flash foam with mildness to the hair leaving the hair soft, shiny and smooth. The shampoo bar is simple to make. It is also simple to use on the hair.

Facial Cleansing Pods

Facial Cleansing Pods formulation class - The Formulators LAB

Facial Cleansing Pods Formulation Class


Facial cleansing pods are sustainable, green, biodegradable and reduce plastic waste by not needing to be in a plastic container. Most plastic containers are not recycled, especially personal care product plastic containers. The recycling centers are very discriminating on the plastic they recycle; the color and the size matters whether it is recycled or not. 

These facial cleansing pods are formulated with a solid surfactant. They are gentle and yet remove makeup and do not sting the eyes. Facial cleansing pods are highly concentrated and very little is needed to cleanse the skin. These pods need to be placed away from the shower water and in a soap dish and allowed to air dry between cleansing for longer usage.
