Soap

In 2018 we –GoodtoGive and Foekje Fleur– came up with Bubble Buddy, a soap dish made from recycled plastic that helps you 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 bit of soap. Such 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 4 special bars that together can replace about every bottle in your home. Bye Bye plastic bottles!

Our 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 steadily stirring. This gentle method leads to a higher quality of the product because the oils stay intact.

The soap bars are highly concentrated and strong enough to challenge soap in plastic bottles and they are even more economical in use. Especially when combined with a soap dish that dries your soap bar fully after each use. Bubble Buddy works very well but other options with good drainage can do the job too.

The soaps are biodegradable and can be used in all kinds of filtering systems.

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

Werfzeep Soap

We have been big fans of Werfzeep since forever. Werfzeep sources their ingredients from organic producers around the world and also collects raw materials in the lovely Wickenburgh forest. They harvest different ingredients and grow various herbs and roots in their own garden, most of them edible. All soaps are handmade in their soaps studio in Utrecht, the Netherlands, and wrapped carefully in a sheltered workshop.

Please find below a selection of our favourites from Werfzeep, with some very specialty items such as shaving soap and the nourishing calendula bar.
