In a world that's becoming increasingly conscious of environmental issues, the quest for sustainable living is at the forefront of many of our minds. Switching from liquid to solid soap bars at home is a simple and effective way to reduce our impact.
This seemingly small change can make a significant impact to the health of our planet and our personal well-being.
Since we introduced our plastic-free Bar range in 2019, 10,600 of you have joined the revolution. In doing so, you have eliminated 600,900 plastic bottles and saved 153,230l of water. That's incredible!
In addition to these achievements, in 2022, our Solid Bar Range received the prestigious Good Design Award. This award celebrates excellence in design & impact across various industries. Winning this award is a significant milestone for Seed & Sprout and our Solid Bar Range. It highlights the exceptional qualities and unique features that set our Bars apart from competitors.
Now we hear you ask, why I have not made the switch already? To help you out, we’ve researched the most frequently asked questions and we have all the answers for you! Let's delve in!
Are Bar Soaps Better?
Yes! They are more environmentally friendly due to less packaging and water content. Our Solid Bars are plastic free, waterless and only contain powerful, natural plant-based ingredients. This means they create zero waste and they produce less carbon emissions when we transport them to you. There are no harsh chemicals that will negatively impact your health or the health of our planet.
How To Store A Bar Of Soap After Use?
Solid Bar soaps are best stored out of direct sunlight, in a spot where they can dry out between uses. We have multiple options of Soap Dishes & Holders like Travel Tins, Ceramic Pots, and Ceramic Soap Dishes for your Shower, Kitchen, and Bathroom.
Are Bars of Soap Unhygienic?
No, bars of soap are not inherently unhygienic. Proper use and storage, such as allowing the soap to dry between uses, helps prevent the buildup of bacteria.
Can I Bring a Soap Bar On A Plane?
Yes, you can bring a soap bar on a plane in both carry-on and checked baggage. Our Travel Tins are great for trips. They have no liquid, so no need to worry about spills!
How To Use A Shampoo Bar?
Wet your hair thoroughly, then rub the shampoo bar between your hands or directly onto your hair to create lather. Massage the lather into your scalp and hair, then rinse thoroughly. You may need to make some adjustments to find the right amount and technique for your hair type.
How To Store Shampoo Bars?
Similar to regular soap bars, shampoo bars should be stored in a dry, well-ventilated area away from water. You can use a soap dish or our specialised Shampoo Storage Tin with drainage to keep it dry between uses.
Are Shampoo Bars Better For Your Hair?
Shampoo bars are exceptional for the health of your hair. Our Solid Shampoo Bars contain less chemicals and preservatives than traditional liquid shampoos. Our Shampoo and Conditioner Bars are Australian Made, Vegan Friendly, and free from Parabens, SLS's, Silicones and Synthetic Fragrance.
How Often To Use Face Cleanser?
We recommend using The Face Cleanser Bar twice daily in the morning and evening. Our Charcoal Face Bar gives a deeper cleanse and can be used every day on oily skin types but should be limited to twice weekly if you have dry skin. Our natural face cleansers contain Kakadu Plum, a rich source of vitamin c, a powerful antioxidant that promotes bright, clear and glowing skin. Skin care is personal but just ask if you have any other questions about our range!
Can I Wash My Face With Shampoo?
Ha-ha, we love this one! We recommend The Face Bar that is specifically formulated for the skin on your face. Unlike traditional synthetic shampoos, our Shampoo Bar and Conditioner Bar can be used on your body for a cleanse and moisturiser all in one!
What Is A Solid Dish Soap Bar?
Our Dish Bar (aka eco-friendly dishwashing liquid) was our top selling product last year! It's an innovative solution to conventional liquid dish soap that you can't get enough of! Its high concentration allows for efficient cleaning with minimal product usage. Just like the rest of our Bar Range, there's no plastic packaging and you simply add water to create the suds! You can check out the rest of our Natural Cleaning Products here.
What Is The Best Way To Wash Fruits And Vegetables?
