Packaging Ethos

We have thought really carefully about our packaging.

We want in our own small way to not contribute to plastic waste so our packaging is plastic free. This is quite tricky with a cosmetic product, and definitely more expensive than using a poly bag or plastic container!

Our soap is packaged as standard with only a sticker or cigar band. If it has to be put in a bag for some reason, that bag is fully compostable. We do offer a box packaging upgrade should you be gifting your soap, that box is made from cardboard.

Our shampoo bars are packaged either in a compostable bag (it looks like plastic but is in fact made with starch), or a reusable or infinitely recyclable aluminium tin. They need a bit more protection than the soap so need to be put in something for transport.

Our creams are packaged in a glass jar with aluminium lid, or if you’re buying a sample size, the same tins we use for the shampoo bars, they can be washed out and used in a number of ways in your home: storing odds and ends, trinkets, jewellery, making candles etc. We also use the aluminium tins for our balms.

Our shower foamers are sold in a compostable bag.

We post our items out in a recyclable cardboard box secured with paper tape.
