We are grateful for each & every one of you. Thank you so much for being here & taking an interest in what we do. 💖
Starting an eco-friendly business is not for the faint-hearted - the journey is an endless obstacle course and the effort & energy required to see the vision through requires fierce passion, resilience & an indomitable spirit.
But what makes it all worth it is YOU, through the amazing response we’ve received so far from this community of like-minded people who, just like us, want to make sustainable swaps in their everyday lives to protect our planet. 🌍 Together, let’s (continue to) #ditchthebottle one bar at a time! 🙌🏻
If you're not totally moved by the trash footprint of your shampoo habit, we have some other tidbits to throw at you, too. Like the fact that switching to bar shampoos helps you avoid paying a premium for water (yes, water is likely the main ingredient in your liquid shampoo). Bar shampoos will also make your trip through airport security a little more seamless and will reduce your carbon footprint from shipping.
Can you think of any other ways that bar shampoos are kinda amazing? Have you tried them? Tell us about your experience!

Hair wash ✔️

My fun new ‘bespoke’ 💁🏻♀️ eucalyptus green tea hair shampoo bar 🧼 I made at the event this week for a hair wash + a leg shave - it’s really moisturizing I use it to wash my face sometimes and shave my legs 👌🏼 highly recommend.
I use a razor from @packagefreeshop and love it. It’s so much cheaper than disposables and more 🌏 friendly and actually easy to use. I used to always epilate and I’ll go back to that for my legs but I need an English one so till then they get a shave too. 🦵 .
Then Greys 👩⚕️ and the BEST face peel that I swear by 2x a week and have used for the last year, it’s packaged in glass and it doesn’t actually peel your skin off it just works wonders through the night and gives me softer happier brighter skin when I could not get my skin to “glow” for anything. It’s a bestie for life. 👯♀️ Swipe ups for all three in my stories. (If I could do a swipe of for sweats + couch + sleep I would do that too 😂 also I’d then be a millionaire and would buy you all sustainably made bar shampoo and a healthy face peel. 👌🏼 ) ...

Summer soap collection bar #2 ️⃣
If you guessed Lemon & Thyme you are correct🍋🌱
This beauty is colored with natural chlorella powder and turmeric, both of which are stunning in cold process soap🤩
I know, I know, kinda basic but man was this soap a challenge to make. I’m blaming it on the #thyme essential oil...it’s a troublemaker🤣
Has anyone else ever used thyme essential oil in cold process soap?

Shower gels to soap bars 💚
I remember trying soaps as a kid and never really being sold on them. Too slippy, irritated my skin, some felt greasy. Soap making has come a long way 😂 the soaps I've purchased make such creamy nourishing lather, and that's just with my hands - no shower poof or sponge needed .
All of these soaps I use smell divine and have such amazing lather to them, no 'tightness' feeling to my skin once I've used them. They also last for so long soaps, just dont forget to put them on a well draining soap dish! .
@kushboosoaps “If you wouldn’t put it in your mouth, why would you put it on your skin?” Kushboo soaps is a brilliant brand who for each batch made another batch is made specifically for the homeless charity 'Nightsafe'. They also donate soaps to womans refugee charity 'Emmeline's Pantry'. Each and every soap is individually handmade to cleanse, moisturise and balance the skin .
@conchuslife soap and more all made from Camilla's kitchen in small scale. All poured, cut, stamped and wrapped by hand, no middle men or factories. Each time you buy a bar from Conchus it is trimmed to size. All of these trimmings are made into another soap - the 'HUG' bar. These are then donated to local charities that need them the most. So each time you buy a soap from Conchus, you're helping give someone a hug .
@friendlysoapltd founded in 2008, they use ancient cold-process method which means the soap is biodegradable and free from by-products too, so there’s literally no waste. The soaps are poured, cut, stamped and packed by hand in the UK, so there's a small carbon footprint. ''In a nutshell, we’ve gone as far as we can to have as little impact as possible on our planet and its wildlife.'' .
@zerowastepath founded in 2018 by Bianca and supported by partner Giulio, she decided to create a company that wasn’t zero waste and sustainable only in the final packaging, but all along the production chain. No products outsourced, all made by a small team in the UK. If you check out the ZWP website under 'Our mission' there is also information about where all their equipment and who their suppliers. ...
