Making the Switch: 6 Compelling Reasons to Choose Bar Soap

22 Jan 2024

If you are a bar soap user, this post is to remind you why. If you are not a bar soap user, this post is to win you over.

It may be an adjustment, but think about the plastic you will ban from your life when you move over to bar soap. In a world of endless skincare options, there’s something beautifully simple and satisfying about choosing a simple bar of soap, so today, let’s dive into the wonderful world of being a bar soap user and explore why this timeless skincare choice has earned a special place in our daily routines.

  1. Living the simple life.

    When you choose a simple soap bar, the ingredients are straightforward. Bar soaps offer a back-to-basics approach to skincare that resonates with those who appreciate the uncomplicated.

  2. One word: plastic

    No more plastic. Need I say more? Maybe just that we can guarantee that all Base Soap bars are packaged plastic-free, so there is that!

  3. No shipping water

    Unlike liquid washes that are mostly water (about 80%), bar soaps are more concentrated. This means less water is being transported, reducing the environmental impact associated with shipping heavy water-based products.

  4. Versatility Wins

    Bar soaps are versatile companions in our skincare and cleansing routine. They can be used in the shower, bath and sink, simplifying our daily rituals. The convenience of an all-in-one solution appeals to those who prefer efficiency.

  5. Handcrafted Beauty

    Many bar soap users appreciate the craftsmanship behind artisanal soaps. At Base, we handmake our soap, and we prefer our bars in a simple, natural look. Other soapmakers enjoy using colours, textures, swirlies etc. Whatever mood you are in, you can find something that tickles your fancy pretty easily online or at a shop. Artisanal bar soaps offer a sensory experience that mass-produced options often lack.

  6. Gentle on the Skin

    Bar soaps, especially those made from quality ingredients, are known for their skin-friendly properties. They cleanse without stripping away essential oils, leaving skin feeling nourished and cared for.

In a world filled with complex skincare routines and a multitude of product options, being a bar soap user is a delightful journey into simplicity, sustainability, and the joy of timeless traditions. So, here’s to the humble bar of soap—a daily companion that cleanses not only our bodies but also our souls with a touch of simplicity and eco-conscious charm.
