They are incredibly thrilled and excited to finally reveal their newest bar... their brand new Ultra Balanced Unscented Shampoo bar for all hair types, from J.R.LIGGETT'S! This bar is going to make your life less complicated, and so much easier and better... you are going to be shouting from the rooftop about the quality, the savings, the utter simplicity, how it's earth and environmentally friendly, and good for young, old, in-between, indeed, for future generations... in short, a 'surefire hit'. The words, "Where have you been all my life?" are going to reverberate around the world!

All those late nights that Jim has spent burning the midnight organic oil, have resulted in an incredible leap forward with a breakthrough product that They can't say enough about. Formula is the key here; jojoba---that 'wonder' oil that is closest to their own natural hair oil, is the main ingredient and the essence of the Ultra-Balanced Bar. Jojoba normalizes your hair's moisture and maintains it's balance, so it works for all people, all hair types. Hair too oily? It tones it down. Too dry? It enhances oil production. Huge additional bonus: unscented-- therefore it's simply terrific for skin and breathing allergies. They're bombarded with enough aromas throughout the day, that it's refreshing not be presented with one more hit on the olfactory senses. Sparkling fresh New Hampshire spring water, soothing almond oil, olive oil, moisturizing castor oil, coconut oil and sodium hydroxide (a binder) complete the ingredients of the Ultra-Balanced bar, enabling your hair to simply fall into place and be at it's natural best. For all this bar does, you are not going to want to use anything else. Shine, baby, shine!

JR Liggett products contain NO Sodium Lauryl Sulfates (SLES)

Chemical name: Sodium Lauryl "ether" Sulfate. An ether chain is added to SLS, and is called a premium agent in cleansers and shampoos. In reality it is very inexpensive, but thickens when Sodium Chloride (salt-NaCl) is added in the formula and products high levels of foam to give the concentrated illusion it is thick, rich, and expensive. Used as a wetting agent in the textile industry, SLES is irritating to scalp and may cause hair loss.

Sodium Lauryl Sulfate is an anionic detergent. It is used all over the world. SLS is the universal standard used to irritate skin in clinical testing so medical researchers can test ingredients to see how fast the skin heals.

It is commonly found in liquid soaps and shampoos, bubble baths, bath and shower gels, and in most all toothpastes marketed throughout the world. SLS has showed penetration into the eyes, as well as systemic tissues (brain, heart, liver, etc.). SLS also showed long-term retention in tissues. Because SLS and related substances are widely used in many populations on a daily basis in soaps and shampoos, there is an immediate concern relating to the penetration of these chemicals into the eyes and other tissues.

Contains none of the above!

Jojoba Oil is an amazing primary ingredient that we use in our Jojoba & Peppermint Shampoo. Many scalp related problems are caused by a hardened build-up of sebum that clogs the hair follicles and may cause some types of scaling. If this hardened build-up is not removed, it can eventually obstruct the hair follicle's ability to function properly, which can lead to a loss of the hair shaft, and ultimately, death of the follicle. Jojoba rapidly penetrates down to the scalp and hair shaft, and readily loosens and dissolves this hardened build-up. Jojoba Oil leaves the scalp and hair follicles clean and free to continue their normal function.

Jojoba Oil helps promote healing of the skin in many ways. Native Americans have long used jojoba oil to help

heal sores and wounds. It actually discourages the growth of some bacterial and fungal microbes that attack the skin. In addition, the chemical composition of jojoba closely resembles that of the skin's natural sebum, so it is easily absorbed and rarely causes allergic reactions, even in the most sensitive individuals.

Jojoba oil is actually composed of liquid wax esters rather than oil. The body's natural sebum also contains wax esters, which act as a sort of natural moisturizer and environmental barrier for the skin. However, wax ester production steadily decreases with age, causing the skin to appear dull and emphasizing wrinkles; a reduced ester content in the skin can also lead to the development of conditions such as psoriasis, dandruff, and rosacea. Jojoba oil can prevent the skin from becoming too oily. Because the structure of jojoba oil so closely resembles natural sebum, it can actually trick the skin into producing less natural sebum, which, unlike jojoba, can clog pores. Jojoba oil may help treat acne, both by reducing sebum production and by protecting the skin from harmful bacteria.

Peppermint Oil is added to stimulate and invigorate the scalp. It is also used to relieve skin irritation, dermatitis, acne and itchiness and also helps to reduce skin redness, where inflammation is present, while at the same time having a cooling action.

Who is JR Liggett?

A number of years ago, after discovering an old New England recipe for this wonderful and unique hair shampoo, JR Liggett began making it. The family fell in love with it, even our dogs. Friends asked if they could try the homemade bar shampoo. So they gave them some.

The amounts they made kept getting larger and larger. Friends always seemed to come back for more. They said things like: "It doesn't irritate my scalp," "I have grey hair and this shampoo doesn't give it a yellow look," "My hair's fuller and feels healthier."
Finally, JR Liggett figured that if the family and friends enjoyed this shampoo so much, there might be others out there who would feel the same way. Since 1985 they have sold hundreds of thousands of bars to people all over the world.

Today, well over a decade from when JR Liggett sold their first bars, they are still getting letters from people who are still excited over having just discovered our shampoo. Now JR Liggett has other products that are just as unique and work well.

Why should you buy an old-fashioned bar of shampoo when there are so many modern liquid shampoos to choose from?

  • It's made entirely from pure 100% natural oils.
  • It contains NO animal products, or preservatives.
  • It doesn't strip hair of its natural oils.
  • It makes a luxuriously thick lather.
  • It rinses out clean and easily.
  • It's especially good for permed or colored hair.
  • It gives your hair body, and manageability.
  • It leaves your hair soft, healthy and smelling clean.
  • 100% Biodegradable with minimal packaging.
  • No Petroleum Based Detergents.
  • No Sodium Lauryl Sulfate or DEA

If after using their shampoo, you find you might like to use a conditioner, feel free to use whatever you like.

Or try a "completely natural" alternative to commercial conditioners by using a simple rinse made from diluted (up to 50%) apple-cider-vinegar and water.

Use this rinse slightly warmed for a more comfortable feel.

After using their shampoo for a period of time some people experience a slight "coating" effect to their hair. Using this rinse occasionally as part of your routine normally brings your hair back to its original soft and silky condition.

Shampoo may not work as well as designed if you have “hard” water.

Olive oil, coconut oil, caster oil, fresh pure New Hampshire spring water, sodium hydroxide (a binder), Organic Jojoba Oil & Almond Oil.

I absolutely love this bar shampoo/soap! It leaves me clean and free of residues, chemicals and fragrances while making my hair and skin softer. I have tried several others, and JR Liggett's Ultra Balanced Shampoo Bar is by far the best.
