First Place: Detoxifying & Deodorizing Shampoo by Sootsoap Supply Co. Ltd.

SOOTSOAP deep cleaning Hand & Body Soap harnesses the power of Binchotan White Charcoal to draw out harmful impurities from the skin to deep clean and remove even the toughest odours, naturally. Originally developed for firefighters, SOOTSOAP is a super strength, naturally derived detoxifier and deodorizer, removing toxins, pollutants and odours from your skin without drying you out.

Well this was a surprise - a pleasant one I might add. Cleanses hair without stripping it, keeps it clean for a good 3 days, non-irritating and although the formula comes out of the bottle looking like tar, it froths into a white foam and is easy to rinse out. A big thumbs up from me!
