Aspire Castile Shampoo

About Aspire Castile Shampoo

            Like Aspire Colorado Gold Liquid Castile Soap, Aspire Castile Shampoo is made in the Castile fashion, using strong caustic and suitable oils.  For specifics on labelling and how the ingredients are used to make the shampoo, please see the notes about Colorado Gold Liquid Castile Soap.  The main differences between the Colorado Gold Soap and our shampoo are the solids concentration and oil blend.  Compared to an all-purpose soap, shampoo should be thicker, so that it can be poured into the palm of your hand without running off.  Also, shampoo should be foamier than all-purpose soap, to help carry the oily buildup from the hair.  Another important difference is that Shampoo is milder, so that it's easier on your hair and scalp.  We finish our shampoo with soothing oils that are added after the saponification reaction is complete and the shampoo has been diluted to final solids content.  The result is that these final oils give the hair and scalp a light soothing finish.

Ingredients in Aspire Castile Shampoo

  • Canola Oil.  Organic, sourced from U.S.A.

  • Safflower Oil.  Organic, sourced from Mexico.

  • Coconut Oil.  Organic, sourced from the Philipines.

  • Hemp Seed Oil.  Organic, sourced from Canada.

  • Potassium Hydroxide (Caustic Potash).  Strong caustic, sourced from U.S.A.

  • Essential Oils for Scent.  We use a variety of essential oils, as listed on our labels.  All are organic.  It's difficult to find sources of essential oils that are made in the U.S.A., but we are continuing to work on that.  We are making some essential oils in our Golden facility from our own organically-grown plants, but they are limited in volume and don’t make up a significant portion of the essential oils used in our products.

  • Castor Oil.  Organic, sourced from India.

  • Vitamin E Oil.  Organic, sourced from USA.

  • Marula Oil.  Organic, sourced from Namibia.

  • Water.  Sourced from Golden, Colorado.  Our shampoo is extremely concentrated, to the edge of a gel, and contains 76% water.  In Golden, we have the best water, since it flows directly down Clear Creek from its source, Saint Mary’s Glacier, high in the Rocky Mountains.  This is the same source of water used by the mighty Coors Brewery!  Also, by making the soap locally, we are saving 76% of the carbon footprint of transportation for common liquid soaps and detergents that are manufactured a great distance away, and then transported to big stores.

Ingredients That Aspire Avoids in Our Shampoo

            The ingredients we avoid in our shampoo are basically the same as those we avoid in our Colorado Gold liquid castile soap, so please refer to that section.
