This past fall, my partner and I stayed at an Airbnb in the country to get away from the busy city, and while visiting, we used the shampoo that the host left. That shampoo was made by The Unscented Company. The shampoo was simple, fragrance-free and did a great job cleaning my hair and leaving it fresh without drying my scalp (like so many do).
At that time, I made a note to contact The Unscented Company to learn more and ultimately test their collection of products to share my findings with you, as I have for over nine years. Where does the time go?
In 2016 The Unscented Company launched a complete line of unscented home and body care on two founding principles. Firstly, redefine the notion of clean by offering exclusively unscented all-natural products. Secondly, design packaging for conscious living by allowing consumers the ability to refill their bottles either at home or in-store.
We tested their soap bar, TUC x LeBicar Kliin Reusable Cleaning Cloth, all-purpose cleaner, hand soap, dish soap, laundry tabs, and dryer balls. So, let’s begin.
These fully biodegradable soap bars are made from pure vegetable glycerin, and while they might start off as a dry bar, they lather quickly and easily. The soap bars are preservative, fragrance and dye-free, so you know it’s safe for you and your family and does a great job cleaning up.
The soap bars are made of Sodium Palmate, Sodium Palm Kernelate, Water, Glycerin, Sorbitol, Sodium Gluconate, Palm Acid, and Sodium Chloride, Palm Kernel Acid and is never tested on animals.
