3. Solid shampoo comes in a lot of variants
Solid shampoo has many variants for your needs. Mostly, solid shampoo is made from natural ingredients, such as rice, grains and fruits – the ingredients that are good for hair.
Having a solid form, shampoo bar contains less detergent that means they are more eco-friendly than the conventional liquid shampoo. Solid shampoo also has less foam than liquid shampoo.
The main pollutant of water is laundry detergent that comes from household activities that involve washing.
Active ingredients such as Natrium Dodecyl Benzen Sulfonat (NaDBS) and Sodium Tripolyphospat (STTP) in detergent can pollute water and is difficult to degrade.
The water waste and detergent can pollute the water ecosystem, especially the ocean. Indonesians usually take a bath twice a day. If we want to reduce water waste, solid shampoo can be the more eco-friendly substitution for the liquid shampoo.
Although solid shampoo is relatively more expensive than the conventional liquid shampoo, it lasts longer than its liquid counterpart.
It’s time to ditch your bottle shampoo for the solid shampoo. By using solid shampoo, we can reduce water waste and detergent that can bring harm to ocean ecosystem. (*)
