Continuing a family legacy of herbalists and natural healers, Fat and the Moon founder Rachel Budde has built her company around providing handcrafted, herbal body care products to those seeking natural and effective alternatives to chemical-filled products. Like a witch over a cauldron, Budde experiments with age-old ingredients and recipes passed down from various healing traditions to craft innovatively simple products that are good for the body and the earth.
As an herbalist, Budde has a passion for plant bodies and human bodies. She sees the skin as the organ of our edge- the place where we meet the world. Our edges are the places we grow and change. Her purpose in birthing Fat and the Moon, is to provide intentionally made potions to support that fertile edge.
Welcome to the new Shampoo Bar...not soap-based like our old bar, but a much gentler version and the equivalent to 16oz of liquid shampoo! This latest bar is surfactant-based, yet with our fave parts of our old version, like rhassoul clay which imparts lift to the locks, and rosemary for a happy scalp.
Surfactants provide the context for the forbidden love between two substances, oil and water. With Surfactants, the Romeo and Juliet affair between oil and water doesn’t end in tragedy, but rather, a bomb ass hair day.
The Shampoo Bar is gentle on the hair and scalp, making it for use on the daily. Because it is concentrated, be sure to remember a little goes a long way!
