Soap powder as a real alternative to conventional handwashing soaps

Soap powder as a real alternative to conventional handwashing soaps Washing your hands regularly is of course important. But many people today often find the use of conventional soaps problematic. On the one hand, this is due to ingredients such as microplastics, which are not only bad for health, but also for the environment. But consumers are also concerned about the amount of packaging materials and the resulting waste. After all, low waste and the avoidance of CO2 are topics that are close to many people's hearts today. In the case of soap powder, manufacturers take advantage of the fact that cosmetics often consist of about 90 percent water. This water is omitted from the dry product and only added later by the consumer. This saves a lot of packaging materials and weight.

Less packaging, but not less care 

As far as the caring properties are concerned, the soap powder is in no way inferior to conventional soaps. For example, the soap powder of the cosmetics manufacturer Jolu is pH-neutral, moisturises and hydrates the skin. The manufacturer of certified natural cosmetics also does not add parabens, silicones, microplastics or palm oil to its soap powders. This is not only better for the user, but also saves the water cycle from unnecessary pollutants.

How can soap powder be used?

The application of soap powder is very simple. You stir it, leave it to stand for a few minutes, and after a final stirring, you can pour it into the soap dispenser and use it like normal liquid soap. Any soap dispenser is suitable, and many manufacturers also offer reusable containers. Carina Benkert, managing director of Jolu Naturkosmetik, explains, for example, that her company uses bioplastic made from sugar cane for the soap dispenser. These containers are just as durable as conventional plastic bottles, but contain no mineral oils and are 100 per cent recyclable.
