We all have a favourite
My son prefers the passion fruit fragrance but I prefer the Shea Tree. We added a bit too much water fo the first bottle but now we've got it just right on this second bottle - it's lovely & creamy & feels really luxurious.
Frequently Asked Questions
Are the sachets compostable?
Our sachets are made from paper and a vegetable-based liner which keeps the powder try. They are certified as biodegradable and compostable.
Can I compost my sachet at home?
Yes, the sachets can be put into your home compost bin but remember to remove the labels first as these need to go into the recycle bin.
How long will my sachet take to compost?
The length of time for the sachets to break down depends on the environment. In industrial composers the temperature is higher, meaning the process is quicker. In your home composer, the temperature is likely to be lower, taking longer for the process. It can take anywhere from 45 days to 6 months to decompose.
Why shouldn't I fill my bottle all the way to the top?
In order to accommodate the pump and room for the product to mix, we leave room at the top so the product doesn't spill over when you put the pump in. We recommend using 400ml of water for a thicker, more creamy texture.
Why can't I use my product immediately after mixing with water?
Because there are several different ingredients in the sachet, they all need time to react with the water and with each other before using. You will see the product thickens during the waiting period and all the ingredients have time to meld together.
How long will my body wash last?
Each sachet contains 40g of powder, which will make up 500ml of body wash. Depending on how liberal you are with your body wash and how many people are in your family will depend on how long it lasts but on average should last a single person at least 1 month.
What are the bottles made of?
Our bottles are made from 45% recycled glass in UK or durable aluminium.
How many times can I reuse my bottle?
Your bottle should last you a very long time. There is no limit to how many times you can refill your bottle. Just rinse it out and give it a gentle clean after ever bottle-full has been used and you're ready to go again.
