Test : Shampoo Honey and spices by Biothalys
A soft shampoo that smells like nature
Let us start at the beginning with the label : Biothalys cosmetics. It’s a French label created in 2010 by the laboratories Phytogénèse. There’s not much more I can tell you. I couldn’t find an official website or social networks…and the lab’s website wasn’t available.
Aqua, Aloe barbadensis leaf juice, glycerin, lauryl glucoside, cocamidopropyl betaine, coco-glucoside, sodium chloride, arctium majus root extract, hamamelis virginiana leaf water, mimosa tenuiflora bark extract, betaine, sodium phytate, parfum, potassium sorbate, sodium benzoate, citric acid, eugenol, limonene.
Concerning those, a few can be considered out of the ordinary :
Extract of burdock root, which slows hairloss and is very good for skin infections.
Hamamelis (witch-hazel) floral water, excellent for the skin.
Tepezcohuite powder, a mexican plant with purifying and astringent properties.
Let’s be cautious however of the cocamidopropyl betaine : its manufacturing is polluting, which is why several organic labels refuse to use it.
They have chosen a color palette of white-yellow-beige/golden, perfect to go with the name “Honey & spices”, furthermore the use of geometric lines reminds us of a beehive. I also love the logo, a drop containing the letter “b”, simple yet effective.
The smell is nice, flowery and slightly spicy.
Their instructions advise to use a hazelnut of shampoo. I admit having to use more of a walnut, but I do have long hair 😉
As it is usually the case with organic shampoos, it doesn’t foam much, however it is effective and easily rinsed off.
Conclusion : it’s a good shampoo but beware of the price, around 20€. The bottle contains 150 ml though, which can last a little while.
