“After taking a small questionnaire, this product was formulated specifically for my hair texture. The shampoo lather felt lavish and the conditioner was viscous.” — 360 Magazine’s Vaughn Lowery
The science-based, personalized haircare brand, Gemmist, is proud to announce the launch of their premium, soap-free Scalp Balancing Bar. A new innovation in scalp care, this first-of-its-kind bar utilizes results-driven, vegan ingredients to help exfoliate the scalp and hair from the roots. The bar is free of sulfates, silicones, parabens and PEGs.
A weekly scalp therapy, that provides soap-free moisturizing, physical exfoliation, and stimulation to the scalp and hair follicles, the Scalp Balancing Bar transforms into a rich creamy lather when emulsified with water and instantly soothes, refreshes, and clarifies. Natural Ingredients include sugar—for gentle exfoliation; Eucalyptus Oil – to help relieve itchiness and control excess oil, Tea Tree Leaf Oil — anti-fungal and known to clear hair follicles, Ginger Root Oil—to clarify, stimulate, purify and refresh; and Argan Oil and Shea Butter—for hydration.
“Compared to the skin on our bodies, the scalp contains more sebaceous and sweat glands as well as hair follicles, which makes it very important to take care of,” says Allison Harr, CEO and founder of Gemmist. “The Scalp Balancing Bar took over a year to develop, and we couldn’t be more excited to offer this product to our existing lineup of haircare essentials.”
Gemmist partnered with experts in soap and soap-free bar chemistry to make a product that would exfoliate and help balance the scalp by helping to remove product build-up, excess oils, and pollution with every wash —resulting in a scalp that is both soothed and refreshed. For proper usage, once a week lather the bar with water and massage directly onto the scalp. Leave on for 1-2 minutes and then rinse well. Repeat if necessary and then shampoo and condition your hair, as usual, avoiding the scalp area.
The Gemmist Scalp Balancing Bar retails for $25 and can be purchased online alongside Gemmist’s shampoo and conditioner. All Gemmist products contain salon-grade ingredients to deliver exceptional results. For more information, please visit gemmist.com.
A haircare company inspired by two key pillars – science and simplicity. Personalized product recommendations of solution-oriented formulas take the guesswork out of a haircare routine. Derived from data and insights via a proprietary algorithm, Gemmist was created to deliver the perfect shampoo and conditioner for specific hair needs direct to the consumer. Gemmist, a combination of gemma, Italian for ‘jewel’ and chemist, represents the juxtaposition between the hard facets of science and the raw power of beauty through shiny, healthy hair.
