Mangrove Foaming Natural Shampoo
Using a natural shampoo used to be a big compromise. Trading off chemicals to be natural meant dull, lifeless and sticky hair that actually felt worse than it looked. Our customers begged us to develop a shampoo that felt and looked like salon brands, but without all the chemicals. They wanted a conditioner that created the shine and luminosity of salon brands, but without the silicone. Four years in development and we have done it. Mangrove is not only natural, it is Super Natural! …and like all Keys products, Mangrove is Chemical-Free!
Mangrove takes a very complex process to make it. Traditional methods for making a Castile soap produce high fatty acid level that cause the hair to cake and thicken. Many people who do not treat their hair with color or do not use SLS based shampoos can use regular Castile soap to wash their hair. This is such a small percentage of the population, that we researched ancient methods to find a way to create a Castile type shampoo that feels and performs like a salon developed shampoo. We discovered a 600 year old recipe used in Wales. We then used state-of-the-art oils to create Mangrove.
You can tell your hair is clean when you use Mangrove because it squeaks. Mangrove does not strip the hair or remove color. It squeaks because the surface of the hair has all of the residue removed. The natural oils deposit on the scalp to condition the hair follicle while keeping the hair clean. Follow with Mangrove conditioner and the hair will be silky without becoming greasy. The combination of the shampoo and conditioner leaves hair looking shiny and smooth.
“For years, I would use our Island Rx as a shampoo twice a week and then our Windsurfer once a week to really deep clean my hair. What I wanted was a shampoo that I could use every day, if I wanted to, that would not leave my hair feeling heavy or looking greasy. I also wanted a shampoo that did not leave my hair with the just washed look. Mangrove has taken our development team four years to create and it was four years well worth waiting for.” Wendy Steele , Keys CEO and Founder
