Do your shower and sink look like a plastic apocalypse? Looking for ways to cut down on disposable packaging? Or do you just need to find the perfect gift for that special someone? Waste no more time in looking - we have solutions for every kind of natural soap requirement you could imagine! The simplest sustainable introduction you can make to your bathroom is the soap you use at your sink. By replacing that plastic pump bottle with a solid soap bar, you are already cutting down on demand for the million plastic bottles which are transported around the world in any given minute. With our choice range of soaps containing everything from almond oil to seaweed and coffee, the only problem is deciding which one best suits your needs! Why not try ‘Gardener’s Herbal Scrub’ from Wild Olive Handmade Soap (SLS paraben free) at the kitchen sink, and an indulgent bar of ‘Rose & Jojoba’ vegan olive oil soap from Trevarno in the bathroom?
If you don’t wish to use a plastic soap holder to place your bar in, we stock a beautiful wooden soap dish by Airmid Soaps which will help minimise soap gunk when your bar is left sitting in a little puddle of water, and in turn help it last longer!
Now for that shower.... You’ve got multiple half-empty bottles of body wash, hair care products, exfoliation products, a collection of the kids things, and no clue where to start. The absolute winner in plastic-free, soaps and skin care category is soap-on-a-rope, aka soap rope. Any of us who’ve had a go at DIY soap making will be familiar with the generic melt and pour soap base, often not vegan, gets mixed with whatever selection of (often synthetic) oils are available and poured into a pretty mold and voila, you’ve got yourself some bar soap. Companies such as Airmid and the Agnes & Cat Soap Company have taken soap several levels higher, however, and created face and body bars which include a vegan coconut butter base and added ingredients to enrich and soften skin. These are then attached to a length of (usually hempen) rope by which they can be hung when not in use - it also means they’re less likely to get dropped in the shower! – all of which contributes to the lifespan of your bar, the reduction of soap gunk and most importantly, the elimination of plastic waste!
These ranges also include musk soaps and scents such as sandalwood for a more earthy, perhaps masculine experience, meaning that not only can they transform your family’s plastic-free bathroom into an indulgent spa experience, they also make a great holiday/occasional/birthday gift for just about anyone!
