Review: Lavera sensitive shampoo

My scalp is what they call, sensitive. Rashes, itching, flaky skin, I know them all. I was happy to discover I could try out a shampoo for sensitive skin by one of my favourite brands, Lavera, from web shop Solobiomooi. This shampoo is designed for the sensitive and irritated scalp, but I’m sure people with normal skin can use this shampoo and appreciate it also. 

Active ingredients used that should calm down irritations are organic almond oil and organic witch hazel. The shampoo has the NaTrue label and is suitable for vegans. At Solobiomooi it's sold for 5,45 €. 

For those that like to read the entire ingredient list, like me, here it is:
Water (Aqua), Sodium Coco-Sulfate, Lauryl Glucoside, Betaine, Sea Salt (Maris Sal), Alcohol*, Prunus Amygdalus Dulcis (Sweet Almond) Seed Extract*, Hamamelis Virginiana Leaf Extract*, Macadamia Ternifolia Seed Extract*, Olea Europaea (Olive) Fruit Extract*, Glycyrrhiza Glabra (Licorice) Root Extract*, Oryza Sativa (Rice) Extract*, Triticum Vulgare (Wheat) Germ Extract*, Avena Sativa (Oat) Straw Extract*, Glycine Soja (Soybean) Germ Extract*, Sodium PCA, Sodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Disodium Cocoyl Glutamate, Sodium Phytate, Fragrance (Parfum)***, Linalool***, Limonene***, Citronellol***.

I discovered a fun fact through the website of Solobiomooi itself: the founder of Lavera, Thomas Haasse, suffers from a chronic skin condition called neurodermitis. From this background, he has developed the Lavera products. Everything from Lavera should be very skin friendly, is 100% dermatologically tested and there is also a line that suits the most sensitive skins out there. 

This is a brand I never question, because everything I’ve tried from Lavera, I have liked. And with this shampoo, it’s the same. It foams easily, making it a fast and easy job washing my hair. It doesn’t turn my hair in a dry, hard to comb mess, and I don’t even have to use conditioner afterwards. This saves time and energy in the morning! 

The smell however is a little bit less my cup of tea. Whereas I LOVE the aroma of Weleda’s almond products, this smell, even though it contains almond too, is way too strong for me. But as you know, I am very sensitive in that part, so I guess other people won’t have a problem with it. 

As for of my scalp irritation goes, I have to admit they don’t disappear when using this shampoo. But, now that it’s all used up, and I’m back to my previous brand, the irritation has increased. So maybe the Lavera did keep things at a minimum after all! 

Enough reasons for me to be able to recommend this shampoo. I’m happy about it!
