CUSH Mango Babassu Shampoo Bar: Why Customers Love It!

When we launched CUSH Cosmetics eight years ago, we introduced our Mango Babassu Shampoo Bar to customers. In fact, it was our only shampoo at that time. We were exploring different alternatives to liquid shampoo—primarily because we were looking for something different to talk about.

Fast forward eight years later and our customers are still loving and talking about how great this shampoo bar is—And here’s why!


“I love all Cush shampoos. But this Mango Babassu Shampoo, I love the most. I have type 4 hair, it’s natural, and I wash my hair every week.”

This is a quote from one of our satisfied customers who uses the bar weekly. The first thing you’ll notice is how gentle the Mango Babassu Shampoo Bar is, which makes it safe to use frequently. That gentle cleansing comes from the Babassu Oil that we get from Brazil’s Amazon Rainforest. We love to create a pampering, cleansing experience with “tried and true” botanicals that have been used to make soap for generations because they work…period!

Babassu Oil brings in an intense lathering experience—just like the experience you get when using a liquid shampoo, but without the SLS. However, gentle cleansing isn’t the only remarkable attribute of Babassu Oil—It’s also a rich, highly moisturizing and quickly penetrating oil that treats dry, itchy and inflamed skin. So you get both, great cleansing and nourished skin with one oil. But we didn’t want to stop there, we also wanted this bar to be conditioning and have some slip.


“Gave my thick, long, tangle-prone hair so…. much slip!” The shine is beautiful, as well.  The ingredients are very nourishing for your scalp/hair.  I absolutely love this poo bar; it is definitely a staple.

You might be asking, “How can a bar of soap have any slip?” Well, it depends on the bar—Thankfully, not all bars are created equally! As it is with all of our products, we like to add something extra that will add a nice little pop to our formulations, which is why we added Mango Butter. I can’t emphasize enough how conditioning and moisturizing this nutrient rich butter is when used to make soap.

It’s chock-full of oleic fatty acids that provide conditioning properties and stearic fatty acids that pamper your hair with a luxurious, creamy moisturizing sensation. All of that creamy lather is what gives this bar the slip you crave in a shampoo.

The Mango Babassu Shampoo Bar is a gentle cleanser that is very conditioning and moisturizing with creamy textured slip—everything our customers love!

But, we wanted to make sure this bar would also give you the CUSH difference that some natural products lack—High performance. Simply put, CUSH products are high performance, salon quality beauty products, and this shampoo bar is delivers with great styling features for curly hair and straight hair.


“This bar has a nice easy lather, but feels so moisturizing. It rinsed very easily and left my hair feeling clean but not stripped… and when I stepped out of the shower, very shiny and defined, soft curls. I hadn’t even DC’ed yet. This is my new staple for cleansing my hair! Love it!

 Soap has a bad reputation of being drying to both skin and hair. However, you’ll be pleasantly surprised to find this to be a myth when it comes to the Mango Babassu Shampoo Bar because it’s formulated without detergents such as SLS, which you will generally find in conventional bar of soap. We used Olive Oil, Wheat Germ Oil and Castor Oil to ensure that the Mango Babassu Shampoo Bar would deliver superior hydration and some styling properties. This shampoo bar contains glycerin—a natural humectant and by-product of the saponification process. With these four ingredients, you’ll experience great detangling properties and soft, well hydrated hair. Moreover, anyone with curly hair will have the added bonus of defined curls and those of you with low porosity hair will finally enjoy moisture.


If you suffer from low porosity hair, the Mango Babassu Shampoo Bar will gently lift your cuticles and bring in all of those amazing oils and butters to moisturize and soften your hair. Castile soap naturally drives hydration because it lowers the overall surface energy of water and allows it to travel easier through your hair and seal in the moisture that the Mango Babassu Bar brings with it.

So if you’ve tried this bar and loved it, would you please take a moment to write a review on Amazon or our website. And don’t forget to tell a friend.
