Bubble Buddy Soap: Back to the Bar

By 01-01-2020

In 2018 GoodtoGive and Foekje Fleur came up with bubble buddy, a soap dish made from recycled plastic that helps you to reduce plastic waste by switching from bottles to bars.

When purchasing a bottle of shampoo, body wash or cleaning detergent you mostly buy a plastic bottle, heaps of water and only a tiny amount of soap. What a waste! A great alternative has been around for centuries but we almost forgot about it: the soap bar. We dove into the world of soap and created four special bars that together can replace about every bottle in your home.

The new soap is kindly developed and handmade in Italy with certified organic ingredients. All bars are vegan, not containing any palm oil and obviously not tested on animals. Due to natural ingredients it makes your skin feel not only clean and soft but also nourished. The traditional cold process technique requires patience and steady stirring. This gentle method leads to a higher quality of the product because the oils stay intact. The soaps are biodegradable and can be used in all kinds of filtering systems.

The soap bars are highly concentrated and strong enough to challenge soap in plastic bottles and they are more economical in use, especially when combined with a soap dish that dries your soap bar fully after each use.

Each soap comes in an illustrated cardboard box designed by Sue Doeksen. The colourful boxes make lovely gifts for babies, hipsters and old ladies.
