Juicy Chemistry Tea Tree, Neem & Rosemary Soap (Anti-Bacterial Soap for Face, Body, & Hair) Review

Mar 23, 2019

Juicy Chemistry makes handmade soaps that I was willing to try. Maybe because they come in an organic pouch made with dried palm leaves. Isn't it lovely? They sell numerous variants of the handcrafted soaps. I wanted to try Hibiscus, Onion & Black Tea Shampoo Bar. But, it was out of stock when I placed my order. (In fact, it is still out of order). So, I opted for the second best soap I could find - Tea Tree, Neem & Rosemary Soap. It is for face, body, and hair!

Price: Rs 400 for 90 grams. I wish they made a smaller size for the lower price. Maybe a sampler box with small hotel size soaps? How lovely would that be? 

Packaging: Each soap is wrapped a butter paper and then put inside the organic pouch made of dried palm leaves. The soapbox is also available for retails at Rs 60.

Ingredients: The website does not mention the full ingredients. It just says - High Performance Ingredients - Azadirachta indica* (Neem) Juice, Butyrospermun parkii* (Shea Butter), Theobroma cacao* (Cocoa Butter), Mangifera indica* (Mango Butter), Distilled Water, Sodium Hydroxide (Lye)**, Ricinus communis* (Castor Oil), Cocos nucifera* (Virgin Coconut Oil), Olea Europea* (Extra Virgin Olive Oil), Lavandula angustifolia*(Lavender) Hydrosol, Citrus Limon* (Lemon) Hydrosol, Lavandula angustifolia* (Lavender Essential Oil), Rosmarinus officinalis* (Rosemary Essential Oil), Melaleuca alternifolia* (Tea-Tree Essential Oil)

* Ingredient certified organic

For Face: As it goes with most neem products, it is drying for the face. It is not as drying usual soaps, but it is still drying.

For Body: Works great for underarms and fights BO. I am really impressed but this because handmade soaps rarely do this. But, since the soap is high on antiseptic ingredients, it fights BO germs like nobody's business.

For Hair: Since it is SLS and SLES free and my hair is used to sulfate-free shampoo, I used it directly without any oiling. Biggest mistake. My scalp stayed dirty and my hair got super dry. Plus, itchy scalp! I immediately had to apply Japakusum after stepping out of the shower. Next, I tried this as a shampoo bar after using Juicy Chemistry Scalp Repair Mask on my scalp and almond oil on my hair. Did not wash off anything properly, tangled my hair, and made it dry and limp. The cherry on top - it burns my eyes! I tried it two more times, and it just adds to the hair breakage because of the dryness. Why I went ahead and still tried it for two more times? Because I really wanted to work it as a shampoo.

Overall: Good for the body. Do not use for hair or face. I could not even figure out what kind of hair this will be suitable for? Also, to think of it, even for the body you need a nice smelling bath product, and it isn't that nice. The ingredient list is not complete so, I have started to doubt that it might contain sulfates other than SLS/SLES.

What do you think?
