This is what I'm dealing with on a daily basis.
Inevitably kids get grubby... some more so than others!
We used to get through an insane amount of liquid hand wash in plastic bottles and shower gel in plastic bottles.
Now we use bars of soap and there is no waste at all after it's used up.
My primary motivation for switching our family to soap bars was to ditch the plastic, but the amazing and bonus benefit has been that it has totally transformed my skin for the better.
For as long as I can remember I've suffered with eczema, I'm one of those sensitive, allergy prone people. Classic brands of old skool soaps from supermarkets are just too drying and harsh for me.
Swapping to natural soap offers a great opportunity to also ditch all the SLS's, parabens and chemicals that are often lurking in those plastic bottles.
Our soaps are nourishing and feel luxurious.
They contain simple gorgeous ingredients like olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil and shea butter, blended with other elements from nature that have been carefully chosen for their beneficial properties.
My idea for The Soap People is to create an environmentally friendly range of soap. I want it to appeal to lots of different people with different skin types and prove that it's one of the easiest steps to take towards a more sustainable lifestyle.
