How It’s Made: Fairly Traded Honey Shampoo


(uptempo instrumental music) – Hey, my name is Sasha. Today we’ll be making
fairly-traded honey shampoo. Arnel will be compounding it for us. Fairly-traded honey is a
fully self-preserved product. It’s made up of over
50% pure Zambian honey. We use honey because
it’s a natural humectant, and it helps you retain
moisture in your hair. First thing Arnel’s going to do is he’s going to start making
the infusion with the flax. First going to make a
teabag out cheesecloth. Then he’s going to fill it with flax seed. And then float that in just some water to cook for a while. The next thing Arnel’s going
to do is he’s going to empty a whole lot of buckets
of fairly-traded honey into our barrels just to get it prepared. Over 505 of the product
is actually Zambian honey, so it is a very thick product. – When you use it, makes
your hair more shiny. – What we do after we
finish pouring the honey and the infusion is done is we actually press out the tea bag to ensure we’re getting the
maximum amount of nutrients out of the flax seed. Then what we do is we
combine them slowly together. And then we begin to add our fragrances. So that would be the beeswax absolute, the geranium, the neroli. To ensure that the product
is thoroughly incorporated and everything’s worked through, Arnel’s going to use our emulsifiers to really, really blend it up. (machine whirring) Otherwise the product would be very thick. It is a lot of honey. Then once it’s emulsified,
it’s allowed to cool down, it’s taken over to a filling stations. It is a very thick product. It’s very viscous so it’s a slow fill. They definitely have to
be careful to make sure they don’t incorporate too
much air into the product. That’s how we make
Fairly-Traded Honey Shampoo.

  1. My hair is very straight, thin and without volume. What shampoo do you recommend to give volume to my hair? Sorry if I spelled wrong, I use google translate 🙂

  2. do u guys add sls in it? im asking this because im planing to buy this product but it seems you guys add sls to it from what I've read in the comments. sls always cause my hair to fall.

  3. I love watching these how it's made videos, and then going home and seeing the compounder's sticker on one of my products… you feel like you get to know these people who make the products you use every day.

  4. The product looks just like honey. I wonder if it feels like putting honey in your hair, or does it lather up like normal shampoo?

  5. What do you guys do with like the leftover flaxseed or anything that you use in the tea bag when you're done with it?

  6. Just got a sample of this and a whole bunch of other products to try from lush and omg I instantly fell in love. My hair loves the shampoo.

  7. I hope I get a bottle made by Arnel, planning on getting one of these soon! Also want to get a shampoo bar, since it'll be easier to take with me on a trip…

  8. So I have a question… if I wash my hair with this, will bees follow me? I'm allergic to bee stings so this is kind of a serious question. I loved the smell of this, but I'm worried about bees.

  9. ""GOD bless you Peter said to them, Repent, and let every one of you be baptized in the name of Jesus Christ, for the remission of your sins; and you will receive the gift of the Holy Ghost. (Acts 2:38) There is no salvation in any other; for there is no other name under heaven given among men, whereby we must be saved. But God shows his love for us, that when we were still sinners, Christ died for us. (Romans, Chapter 5: 8) For the wages of sin is death; but the gift of God is eternal life in Christ Jesus our Lord. Romans, Chapter 6:23""

  10. Has no one else noticed they use hella ton of honey… >.> how is it fairly traded? And what is happening to the bees like ….am i the only one?!?!?

  11. Zambian honey?
    Fucking white people taking food out of AFrican people, starving African people, and putting our food in their shampoo.
    Fucking white people I tell you, they drove the entire world hungry for their own status symbol.
    There is no bullshit of fairly traded if you are buying it from them for fucking zero dollars to sell it for 25 dollars here.
    This is why I fucking hate white people !!!!

  12. You fucking old saggy white people!
    Stop using our people's food for your face, you will age like a dog whether you like it or not, honey or not honey you will still age like a fucking dog.

  13. Flax seed =Stolen from Africa

  14. I think the idea of using honey and flaxseed gel is very good BUT why do they have to use Sodium Laureth Sulfate? It’s a very harsh detergent….

  15. My all time favorite shampoo I have really enjoyed using this shampoo and it works very well make my hair moisture and shine i like it
