terrorists of beauty faqs

what is the ph level of soap?

our soaps have a ph value of 7.5 - 8.5, hence they are slightly alkaline. this is an optimal scope for a mild care of hair, face and body

how long does one bar of soap last?

on average, one block lasts for 2-3 months, but it depends on how often you shower or wash your hair - and whether you have long or short hair. if you use it up much faster, the probability is very high that you are overtreating your skin. also consider that skin and hair produce less sebum when using soap continuously, so adjust your use accordingly! clean your skin and hair with pure water. the skin is the largest and most exposed organ of the human body - it is sensitive. some dermatologists and studies even say that we should not clean our skin every day, but that the skin is healthiest if you wash it often with water only

can i use your soaps in nature, too?

terrorists of beauty soaps are biodegradable and can therefore be used in nature without hesitation. but please keep in mind that every cleaning product reduces the ph value as well as the surface tension of the water. this soap also does this, which is why it doesn't belong in large quantities in sensitive habitats. so use only as much of it in nature as absolutely necessary. by the way, when using our soap in seawater, it is a bit difficult to use: the formation of foam is significantly reduced, which makes hair washing more difficult

are your soaps suitable for children?

block 003 is suitable for children's skin. nevertheless, keep in mind that children's skin needs much less extra care than adult skin. so what does your child's skin really need? and what has the industry told you? isn't pure water enough? if you decide to use soap, make sure that it doesn't get into your child's eyes because it burns a little bit. therefore we don't necessarily recommend soaps for young children

can i use your hair soap for colored or sensitive hair?

we never give a guarantee. every body is different, every hair is different, every skin is different. in general, however, we have many customers with coloured or very sensitive hair who get along very well with our soaps. the first hairdressers are also using our soaps very successfully in their salons. but be aware: it takes time! especially if you have very sensitive or chemically treated hair, the transition phase for your hair could take longer

i have very sensitive skin or neurodermatitis. can i still use your soap?

every body is different, every hair is different, every skin is different. when using natural products, the most important thing is that you give your body time and at the same time listen to what it needs. in general, we have many customers who successfully use our soaps for neurodermatitis, eczema, skin impurities or irritations, as these are often the reaction to synthetic ingredients and surfactants of shampoos and shower gels. but we would never offer a guarantee for this. you have to try it! if you have very sensitive or dry facial skin, it might also be advisable to use soap only once a day and to rinse your face in the morning with clear water only

can i also replace cream, conditioner and body lotion?

the soap should be sufficient to replace cream, conditioner and body lotion. however, you have to listen to your body. if you still feel that something is missing after the transition phase, you should of course give it to your body is different, every hair is different, every skin is different

why is this page in lowercase letters only?

firstly, good job on making it this far! terrorists of beauty are all about omitting what is unnecessary. maybe capital letters are unnecessary too. we'll let you be the judge of that :)
