Sure, anybody can make soap. But make it great for shampooing too? That’s not easy.

 

We set out on a mission to create a bar of soap that was specifically formulated to be great for washing hair, body, and shaving using only the best possible natural ingredients.

 

Most soaps on the market use harsh detergents that can dry your hair and skin, or botanical oils, that once saponified, are very drying. For hair, you have to strike the right balance of being able to clean, but still be moisturizing, and not build up a residue or feel greasy.

 

High-quality soap making is an art so we sought out the best in the country and gave them our challenge.

 

We are big fans of coconut oil (for everything!), so we started there. We researched and tested many coconut-based formulas on the market, and even though they offered some great skin benefits, found them to be too drying. Palm gives a rich lather and pairs well with coconut to create a long-lasting, moisturizing bar that is high in glycerin (for skin conditioning) – this became our soap base.

 

In Jan 2019 we improved our 3 in 1 Bar further. Upgrading to 85% certified organic ingredients and moving to RSPO Segregated Palm Oil —our palm is now both certified organic and only comes from certified sustainable plantations. All part of our ongoing journey of continual improvement and increased sustainability. Learn more

 

We then took the extra step and expense of “superfatting” – adding the highest concentration of oils possible to our soap base in order to make it as rich, moisturizing, and conditioning as possible.

 

The oils had to be the absolute best for skin, shaving and hair, so we worked with our soap maker to choose highly effective, proven oils: Shea Butter, Olive Oil, Golden Jojoba Oil, Jamaican Black Castor Oil, Argan Oil. Akamai 3 in 1 Bar was born.

How to use

  • Body & Face Cleanser: Soap where you need it. The beneficial oils will leave skin conditioned, clean, and smooth, not tight or dry.
  • Shaving: Rub bar across area to shave, and use hands to create a lather. Rich oils help the razor glide across your skin for a clean, close, comfortable shave. Follow your shave with Akamai Skin Fuel to help soothe, moisturize, and heal
  • Shampoo: Rub bar across hair to create a lather. Massage your scalp and work through your hair. Rinse well. If you need hair conditioner, apply a pump of Akamai Skin Fuel to wet hair – you can rinse or leave in for extra conditioning.

Tips

  • Over-washing of the skin can remove good, useful bacteria and can dry your skin out. We think it is wise to rinse more and only soap up when you really need it. Rinse more, soap less.
  • Transitioning from regular shampoo to our Akamai 3 in 1 Bar. If you’ve been using a shampoo free of detergents (SLS/SLES) then you’ll have no problem using our all-natural soap right away with good results. However, if your shampoo (or soap) contains detergents, your scalp will continue its cycle of overproducing oil to offset the stripping effects. This can result in oilier hair for a short time. So keep in mind it might take a week or two for your scalp to adjust to this gentler approach.
  • Travel, Outdoor & Camping Friendly. Our multipurpose, natural soap can be used for all of your on the go washing needs, even your mess kit, and clothing. 100% biodegradable, earth-friendly ingredients.
  • One Akamai 3 in 1 Bar will likely last one person 30 days with "typical" use. (However, if you use our recommended method of washing where you “just hit the stinky parts” when showering — and wash hair once a week, expect the bar to last about 60 days).

As always: No synthetic or natural derived chemicals, cheap fillers, dyes, or fragrances. Color and scents are a byproduct of the ingredients we use. All products contain only pure, minimally processed, natural ingredients and nothing else.

Q: How do I transition from my regular shampoo to Akamai's 3 in 1 bar?

A: Our gentle, truly natural soap bar was meticulously formulated to be a great shampoo. If you are transitioning from traditional shampoos & conditioners, there may be an adjustment period of 3 – 5 washes. (The length of your hair & how long you’ve been using regular shampoo is also a factor). Make sure you lather well and rinse thoroughly.

 

Since many shampoo brands recommend washing hair daily AND contain detergents that dry out your scalp, your scalp is forced to produce excess oil to offset the drying effects. Time to break the cycle! We (and most people outside of the personal care industry) recommend only washing hair 1-2 times per week.

 

Q: I have hard water. How can I reduce the effects of soap buildup especially in my hair?
A: Using a vinegar rinse (20% ACV to water) will help remove chemical and mineral build up from hard water and residues left behind from most shampoos and conditioners (particularly silicones).

 

Q: What is RSPO Palm Oil?

A: Segregated RSPO Palm Oil = Sustainably grown. The RSPO was founded in 2005 to create a system for certifying sustainably grown palm oil, and to create guidelines of membership for certified growers. These guidelines cover more than just environmental stewardship; members of the RSPO must report on and provide better working conditions, better wages, and foster local discussions and input on their impact on local and native land. These principles and criteria for members of the RSPO help ensure that the certified palm oil is produced under legal, socially and environmentally responsible management. The World Wildlife Fund has given the RSPO a thumbs up as a big step in the right direction for the production of palm oil in “providing assurance that valuable tropical forests have not been cleared, and social safeguards have been met during the oil’s production” of Certified Sustainable Palm Oil. Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO) certified sustainable palm oil is an ingredient found in our 3 in 1 Bar - our all natural soap made for washing, shaving and shampooing.

I love the 3 in 1 Bar

I love using the 3 in 1 Bar for my shower. I smell CLEAN! Not perfumery….and not stinky still. I just smell clean. 😊 I really like it a lot. Sheryl S. from N.Y. S.

It's a must-have for our home

I keep 10 of these in stock at all times - everyone in our house uses this soap, even the pups! Love that it's non-irritating, and unscented, so no one can complain about the smell. Anytime I don't have to hear complaints as a mom, I keep it around : )

I was skeptical but....

Fantastically surprised and happy when my son told me he loves this 3-in-1 bar. I had bought it so he could test it out because he doesn't like a lot of extra stuff. So wrapping up a couple of products into one simple one is perfect for him. I'd highly recommend trying this bar.

This is a nice bar of soap for body and hair.

This soap was nice but I wish it was more fragrant.

Scrunbs Clean

While I use the 3-in-1 BAR as both hair and body wash, I especially love the way it deep-cleans my hair while not drying it out. It’s pretty good as a face wash, too, and it easy to pack for trips.

Great Soap, bad match for hard water?

I started with Akamai maybe a year ago, I first tried the tooth powder as I was looking for a real product that actually cleaned my teeth. The tooth powder is fantastic, my teeth have never felt so clean or looked so white, so I then decided to try the oil pulling mouthwash- also a great addition to the lineup. Getting to the dentist hasn't happened during the pandemic but the tooth powder and oil pulling mouthwash have been essential in keeping my teeth healthy. So I then tried the fulvic mineral drops to help add some minerals I may be lacking, also a great addition. Recently, the condo I live at has had a HUGE water quality shift, the water I'm guessing has suddenly turned very hard making it very difficult to lather and rinse my hair. Although this seems like it is not a huge deal, over the long run hard water can wreak havoc on your hair and drive you nuts. SO.. I decided to give the 3 in 1 bar a shot, now I was very satisfied with how well it lathered and it made my hair feel very silky smooth as I scrubbed my hair-BUT the second I put my head under the shower water it felt like someone poured glue on the top of my head and I'm not blaming the 3 in 1 bar I'm blaming the hard water I'm showering in! The soap is a great product, I'd love to try it out with soft water..maybe someday =(. Any suggestions on natural shampoos that work well with hard water would be welcomed, I currently use "Organic Excellence" shampoo. Also it would be interesting to know if the Akamai team has any thoughts on using the 3 in 1 bar as a shampoo with hard water, I'd love to learn more about the science behind my current hair torture.

Hi KL -- Thanks for your thorough review! Other customer's really appreciate this kind of feedback -- as do we!

Regarding you hard water issue, we recommend you try using a vinegar rinse (20% vinegar to water) to help remove the build up. White or apple cider vinegar will work -- or a citrus. (The idea is to use something benign that is acidic) It's a great way to condition hair and can also be used to remove residues left behind from most shampoos and conditioners (particularly silicones). Let us know if this helps,

With gratitude.

Best soap ever. It’s all I use. It even replaced shampoo for me.

Awesome soap!

Love it for sensitive skin

This is the only soap that doesn’t beg to be followed by lotion to ease itchy skin. It leaves my skin feeling soft and soothed after shaving or washing. This little bar has a lot of longevity, and it lathers up perfectly when used with exfoliating shower gloves. Love it!

Super Sudsy!

I've transitioned from soap, shampoo, and conditioner to only usine the 3 in 1 bar. It super sudsy, cleans very well, and smells nice. I don't like strong smelling anything, so the understated smell is very pleasant. The only soap I use.
