A Heartfelt Post
When I first used J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bar, I knew I’d changed my shampoo choice forever, but what I didn’t realize was the direction that decision would take me and the repercussions thereof. I began taking note of and researching the ingredients in my personal care products; not only shampoo, but body soap, body washes, toothpaste, bar soap, liquid hand soap, facial moisturizers, body lotion, and other everyday hygiene products that you and I purchase simply because of habit or advertising, without even giving a thought to the safety of the ingredients. For years we’ve assumed that if the Food & Drug Administration has given the green light to a product, then everything’s cool… not necessarily so.
J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bar does not contain Sodium Lauryl Sulfate, a harsh, petroleum-based, extremely drying detergent used in many soaps, shampoos, body washes, and even toothpaste! I have used liquid shampoos and soaps that contained SLS for most of my life and always wondered why even though the labels screamed, “Contains Moisturizers!”, I still had dry hair, and skin so dry that it felt like it was going to tear. At one point, I had to forego using soap on my face, only washing with warm water. Little did I know!
“Detergent-Free”… J.R.LIGGETT’S products contain real, honest to goodness, down to earth moisturizing oils like fragrant lavender, rosemary, jojoba, sweet almond… hand-made in the USA with fresh, clean, clear New Hampshire spring water… no animal testing, no animal by-products, bio-degradable ingredients, even a bio-degradable paper bar wrapper. I love the convenience of using the Shampoo Bar for not only my hair, but also for my body, as a facial cleanser, and a shaving cream. It’s natural, non-irritating, fragrant, soft and soothing. It’s an easy, healthy choice; just one product, nothing to think about, nothing to worry about.
Becoming an educated consumer started me on a path of healthy choices; not just hygiene products, but more of an awareness of how I live daily… healthy food choices, increasing my physical activity, and in general, seeing the wisdom of taking care of the only body I have. We know medical costs are exorbitant, and if we can avoid illness from unhealthy life and food choices, we’ll be ahead of the pack. I’ve found that a lot of people still “just don’t get it”. They just don’t understand a bar shampoo, or why they should avoid SLS and how many products contain this harsh detergent. Avoiding harmful chems in your personal body care products is as important as a healthy diet, physical activity, fresh, clean air, enriching relationships, and a sound mind. J.R.LIGGETT’S is actually a lifestyle concept, an important part of who we are and where we need to be.
Is there someone in your life whose health and well-being is important enough that you could share with them the wisdom of choosing J.R.LIGGETT’S Shampoo Bar? Be a ‘love’ and show another person the path to a healthier lifestyle.
