Living the Bar Soap Life, but how?!

5 Mar 2024

Ok, so let’s say we converted you into a bar soap user.

You have your bar soaps and are ready to never touch a bottle of body wash ever again. It all goes amazingly until you realise that bar soap you just bought got all sticky and gooey in the shower.

Don’t worry, it’s you, it’s not us! 😊

Storing your bar soap right is essential if you want it to last. Here are some tips to make the most of your bar soaps!

Tip #1 Dry dry dry
Always store your bar soap in a dry place. If you keep it in the shower, that is fine, but make sure it sits high enough to not catch water off people showering.

Tip #2 Elevate!
Use a soap dish with ribs, holes or a tray. To make sure it dries properly, it needs to not lay on an even surface, even if that surface is a dish. Almost all soap dishes are made so there is breathing space under the bar, but if you use a dish that was meant for something else, make sure it’s slightly elevated.

Tip #3 To infinity and beyond
Use a soap-saver bag for your soap ends. Use a bag like this to put in your odds and ends, so you won’t waste them. If you like using a soap-saver bag for your main soap, that’s okay too, but never store a new bar soap in a soap-saver bag, the bar won’t dry out properly.

Or, and this is something we have just realised it’s a thing, create your very own infinity bar! A bar soap that never runs out? Yes please! In case this needs any explanation, every time your bar gets to small to effectively use, scrunch it together with other old bars that are too small to effectively use, and ta-da, you have your own infinity bar!

Tip #4 Find your favourite..
Bar soap is gentle and it has very few ingredients, but skin is complicated, so if there are ever any essential oils that your skin doesn’t like, or you feel like your skin is getting dry, try a different bar. There are bars without essential oils (like our Coconut Castile bar), and bars with butters and extra oils for a more moisturising experience (like the Cocoa Body bar).

Tip #5 But don’t be afraid to mix it up!
Living on the edge, right? There are bar soaps in all scents and varieties, so find your favourite, but don’t be afraid to change around every now and again, there might be another favourite just around the corner! You could for example, get your hands on ‘the 6’, a pack of all 6 of our core bar soaps, or order a kilo of offcuts to see some of what we have available.

Tip #6 Enjoy
Lather, massage and rinse thoroughly (and don’t let it get in your eyes!)

There you go, we hope this helps! We don’t only want to make and sell the world’s best bar soap, but we also understand that there are barriers to overcome, and are keen to help move those out of the way. If you have any other tips, we’d love to know, just shoot us an email or message on social media!
