  • Producer: Janni Bars
  • Origin: Kildare, Ireland

Janni, native to Sweden but living in Ireland, is behind Janni Bars. I met Janni at an event in Kildare. She is passionate about horses. She was inspired to come up with a solution for all the plastic bottle waste from washing horses. After that, Janni developed the range of plastic free soap bars and shampoo bars for friends, families, retailers and also hotels.

At Janni Bars it is important to use only natural ingredients, there is no need to wash ourselves and our pets in harmful chemicals, parabens, silicones etc. Our skin is the biggest organ of the body, and all that we put on it will be absorbed, for better or for worse.

The corner stones of Janni Bars soaps and shampoos is reducing waste and using all natural ingredients. Firstly, Janni uses minimal packaging. Secondly, her soaps and shampoos are Palm oil free and of course cruelty free. They are based on oils and butters, and enriched with essential oils, clays, salts, and mica minerals. Her bars are free from parabens, silicones, preservatives and SLS, hence make a great plastic free alternative for you and your family.

    I love this shampoo bar, it smells gorgeous, lathers up really well and is a great shape. I have normal – oily hair and I wash my hair twice a week. This shampoo bar leaves it clean and shiney.

    Absolutely love this, very gentle on my curly hair. Ingredients are curly girl method approved. The only issue I had is it took the color out of my hair…the grey was on show much quicker thank usual!

    I have used bottled shampoo my whole life and have started to make the move to zero plastics. The first time I used it, it took a while to lather up but since then it so easy to use! My hair is so thick so I had to separate my hair to apply the shampoo but my hair is so clean and shiny! It feels so light with no residue left over!

    I absolutely love this shampoo bar! It smells great, lathers up really well and I am getting a much longer time out of my hair in between washes. I would highly recommend this product!!

    I was wary of trying shampoo bars/conditioners because I have dry curly hair. But when my regular shampoo ran out I decided it was the perfect time to make the switch to a plastic free alternative and I’m so glad I did! Great quality and will last me ages. The scent disappears very quickly but this isn’t an issue for me.

      Hi Lisa, Thanks a mill. Yep the Janni range is lightly scented but the Three Hills soap range is much stronger scented. Fiona
