Make the bathroom plastic-free with powdered soap

How to combine care and sustainability

Many consumers today have the desire to produce less waste and make their everyday lives more sustainable. More and more people are therefore committing themselves to the idea of low waste and trying to contribute to the reduction of CO2 in their own households. Besides the kitchen, the bathroom is an important place to avoid plastic - for example when washing hands and taking a shower, because of course many of the packages of the products used for this purpose are made of plastic. The soap packaging and the bottle for the shower gel can often not be reused and therefore mostly end up in the rubbish. Soap Powder is a sustainable alternative.

What is soap powder?

With the soap powder, the water is only added at home by the end customer. This is practical because it reduces the need of packaging materials as well as the transport weight. The natural cosmetics manufacturer Jolu, for example, offers soap powder for washing hands and soap powder for shower gel. According to Jolu Managing Director Carina Benkert, the manufacturer also does without parabens, microplastics and silicones. This is not only good for your health, but also for the environment. This prevents problematic ingredients from entering the wastewater when washing hands and showering. Of course, soap powder is just as caring as conventional products - and consumers don't have to do without the scent either.

How does the soap powder become handwashing soap?

Making soap from soap powder is quite simple: You simply put the required amount of powder in a glass or measuring cup and then pour in the specified amount of water. The whole thing is then stirred and left to stand for a few minutes. After final stirring, the liquid soap can be transferred to a soap dispenser. Many natural manufacturers such as Jolu also offer suitable containers that are reusable and often even 100 per cent recyclable.
