Annings of Dorset - Bergamot & Sandalwood Shampoo bar


The Bergamot & Sandalwood shampoo bar has been handcrafted in Dorset’s Jurassic Coast. Essential oils are blended to create an earthy and woody scent, while the vitamin rich natural oils create a nourishing and conditioning lather. British seashells give texture for a beach-hair feel.

Shampoo Bar • Bergamot & Sandalwood • 90 g • British Seashells • Handmade in Dorset


This earthy, woody scent with an enchanting floral top note takes inspiration from Dorset’s ancient woodlands. Essential oils and pigments harvested from the wood and roots of the Sandalwood tree and the Dyer's alkanet plant bestow a truly wildwood character. 


Moisturizing avocado, olive and coconut oils combine to create a nutrient and antioxidant rich lather which conditions and protects your hair. British seashells — known for their natural antibacterial and purifying qualities — give texture for a beach-hair feel. It's a unique blend of natural ingredients that cleanse, hydrate and nourish from follicle to tip. 


Sodium olivate (olive oil), Sodium cocoate (coconut oil), Sodium sunflowerseedate (sunflower oil), Aqua, Glycerin (naturally occurring), Sodium avocadoate (avocado oil), Sodium beeswax (beeswax), Scallop shell powder, Clay, Santalum album (sandalwood oil), Citrus bergamia (bergamot peel oil), Alkanna tinctoria (alkanet root extract), Linalol, Limonene.

Please note where we use natural oils, essential oils and clays in our handmade soaps there can be variation in colour and texture from bar to bar.  


For best results rinse your hair and create a soapy lather by applying the shampoo bar directly to your scalp and hair, or by rubbing the bar between your hands.  Massage the lather into your hair as you would a normal shampoo, then rinse thoroughly. Conditioner can be applied afterwards. 

For some people it can take a few washes to transition to shampoo bars, especially if you're used to synthetic mass-produced shampoos. This is because our shampoo bars don't strip your hair of their natural oils, but work with them. So your hair might feel slightly oily, dry or frizzy to start with, but give it a couple of weeks and hopefully it will work wonders for you too!

Our soap contains processed seashells, should you have an allergy to shellfish you could be allergic to our soap. 

Shellfish allergy is an atypical response by the body's immune system to proteins in certain marine animals. Marine animals in the shellfish category include crustaceans and mollusks. Examples are shrimp, crabs, lobster, squid, oysters, scallops and snails.

Shellfish is a common food allergy. Some people with shellfish allergy react to all shellfish, while others react to only certain kinds. Reactions range from mild symptoms — such as hives or a stuffy nose — to severe and even life-threatening.
