Washing Hands

Eco Soaps

SUSTAINABLE. NATURAL. PLANT-BASED.


Washing your hands does not have to harm the environment.

 

Rethink The Soap We Use
To Wash Our Hands

The coronavirus pandemic underscored the importance of personal hygiene and health like never before. Unfortunately, this led to the increased use of harsh cleaning chemicals, soaps, single use plastics, and increased carbon emissions from transporting all the liquid cleaning products.

It got us thinking “How then do we find a more sustainable way for us to
wash our hands?”

That exact question resulted in the birth of a soap flake based soap that has a minimal environmental impact.

How To Use Our Product

 
 

Pour a one 40gram sachet / 40gram scoop of soap flakes into 240mls of hot boiling water.*

*Please use distilled or filtered drinking water. We do not recommend unfiltered tap water, as the impurities in tap water can cause the soap to become cloudy (as the salts in the soap will precipitate out). The soap is still safe for use, but the texture of the soap will be compromised.

Herbal Oils
 

Pour the liquid into a foaming pump bottle.*

About Our Products

We sell soap, not water. More than 80% of the weight of liquid soap is water, yet transporting water through the soap supply chain does not make sense. All the carbon emitted to transport this water makes us cringe.


To solve this problem, we sell the essence of soap, concentrated in Eco Soap flakes. These are mixed with water in your own home, to dramatically reduce the carbon footprint of your daily hand washing.


Give yourself the luxury of foaming handwash, infused with Essential Oils /Essential Oil Blends of your choice, with environmental peace of mind. 

 

THE BASE OF OUR SOAP

Virgin coconut oil forms the base for Eco Soap flakes. Sustainably grown on sunny islands in the Pacific ocean, our coconuts yield pure oil that is made into a rich, all-natural and highly moisturising soap. Coconut oil soap has been used for generations as a natural cleanser, safely protecting your skin even after innumerable rounds of daily handwashing.

 

NO NASTIES

We do not use synthetic or petroleum derived detergents, or additives – these irritate your skin, pollute our waterways, and endanger marine life. We want to keep the Earth healthy too, and our biodegradable soap derived from pure coconut oil can safely be discharged and return to the natural environment that it came from.

 

PACKAGING

We offer 2 types of packaging, reused plastic containers or sachets. The reused plastic containers have been salvaged and reused to give them a second life. The sachets packaging is biodegradable.

 

GIVE PLASTIC FOAM BOTTLES A SECOND LIFE

Our product as made to encourage you to re-use refillable foaming soap dispensers.


Foaming soap feels luxurious on the skin, and also reduces the amount of soap required for each handwash. These are the steps we are taking, in our journey to cleanse the environment. Come journey with us.
