Soap Flakes | For Hand Wash
Washing your hands does not have to harm the environment.
These soap flakes are made to encourage you to re-use refillable foaming soap dispensers and give them a second life!
Vegan, Natural, Handmade
The increased use of harsh cleaning chemicals, soaps, single-use plastics, and increased carbon emissions from transporting liquid cleaning products 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.
The soap flakes are made of natural ingredients, without any nasty chemicals. It was made to encourage you to re-use refillable foaming soap dispensers and give them a second life!
How To Use
- Pour a one 40gram sachet / 40gram scoop of soap flakes into 240mls of hot boiling water.*
- In winter time we suggest to add 280 ml water instead
*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.
- Stir until soap flakes dissolve, to make a hand wash.
- Let the liquid cool for 30 to 45 minutes.
- Add 1ml – 2ml (20-40 drops) of Essential Oils of your choice.
- Pour the liquid into a foaming pump bottle. Please note: As there are no added preservatives it is advisable to use within 2-3 months after mixing.
- Pump the desired amount onto hands, lather and rinse with water.
