Shampoo bars are eco-friendly little wonders — and some of the best ones on the market come from Lush. According to the brand, solid shampoo bars were actually invented by Lush’s very own co-founder, Mo Constantine, and cosmetic chemist Stan Krysztal in 1987.

A solid (ha!) alternative to standard shampoos (which require lots more energy and water to create),  Lush’s shampoo bars are completely plastic-free and self-preserving. Designed for oily hair and troubled scalps, their lemon-infused Jumping Juniper bar is the key to happier hair.
