I am so happy with my purchase! The package arrived very quickly and I was delighted to see zero waste packaging bar one piece of tape to protect the address label. I have started with my nettle shampoo bar and absolutely love it, it lathers so well and, after a few washes to allow my hair to transition, my hair feels great. Commercial shampoo had been causing my curls to be much less defined but I've got great curls back with this bar! Can't wait to try the others, excellent customer service also, thank you!

Wow, where to start - I like it but it takes some getting used to. My hair is curly and tends to frizz as I am in the middle of the countryside and 'weather' but this shampoo has made my hair courser - in that it isn't covered in silicone and whatever other rubbish one finds in commercial shampoos - so while it holds its curl more, it also frizzes more (but it's kind of cute). I also live in an area with incredibly soft water (I have never had to descale the kettle it's so soft) so it takes a good five minutes and two or three washes to get a good lather going. I am still using the transition set so I may not have found my perfect shampoo bar yet but I will continue as I love not having plastic bottles cluttering up the bathroom which my useless Council can't/won't recycle. All in all, very good and I do recommend them.

We bring clean style to your life, and nature closer to you.

Once upon a time, A and B lived in the same town. Both loved books, pictures and musical instruments, colours, shapes and sounds. They were brought together by word games and mind tricks and played in nature, gathering sun, shells, herbs and seaweed.

Having experienced so many meaningful moments, and realising they had to capture and share them with others, A and B found a way to spread powerful messages in the purest way…

…and started to build their own shapes, colours and forms to tell stories, describe mysterious worlds, and capture fleeting moments, reflecting life through the prism of their imagination.

Smell the scent? Feel the warmth of the water, the silky smoothness of the lather, the nourishing richness of the oils?

It is soap, an intimate piece of art made from the best we have found in nature.

You are invited to explore a transforming experience that cleanses body and mind while creating new associations and impressions.

You have entered AB Studio, an experiment in clean design. This is where shape, colour and scent are combined into intimate pieces of art that can enhance your everyday experience. We turn natural ingredients into beautiful forms for your enjoyment and well-being. We bring clean style to your life.

Our Products:

Our natural soaps are lightly scented using only essential oils. You will notice that the scent can be quite subtle when compared with mass produced soap, which tends to be heavily perfumed with artificial fragrances. The essential oils in our soap are active ingredients, meaning that their beneficial properties remain intact, and you will find that the scent expands and develops during use.

Our Policy on Additives:

Our soaps and shampoo bars contain only natural butters, oils, clays and botanicals, carefully chosen for their beneficial qualities. We do not use parabens, SLS (sodium laureth sulphate), PEG (polyethylene glycol), DEA (diethanolamine), siloxane (silicone), or any of the other surfactants, preservatives or artificial perfumes found in many commercial cosmetics.

Using Shampoo Bars:

There is often a transition period during which the impurities left by artificial additives and perfumes are cleansed out from your hair, and it normally takes more than one wash for your hair to settle down. Users in hard water areas may also experience this effect, in which case we recommend an apple cider vinegar rinse after use.

The effects of different shampoo bars can vary depending on each user's hair type, their reaction to different ingredients or underlying skin or hair issues. Please be sure to contact us for advice before ordering if you are unsure which product might best suit your requirements.
