The Bathhouse & Soapery Handmade Soaps were wrapped in plastic to help protect them during shipping and to protect them whilst on the shelves in the shop.
In February 2018, we held a poll on our facebook page asking our customers, if they would be happy for our soaps to go naked or remain wrapped, The result was an emphatic "NAKED". Although EU cosmetic regulations require us to provide product labelling, when shipping our products, The soaps will be packaged into paper bags with labels attached, when bought online, But 100% naked on the shelves in the shop.
The Bathhouse & Soapery made over 800 kilos of Handmade Soap in 2017, that is 8000 bars of soap, each wrapped in plastic, weighing a total of approx 1.2 kilos in total.
WE WILL BE NAKED BY SUMMER 2018 & THAT'S A 100% REDUCTION OF PLASTIC WASTE.
