Many people over the years have made the switch from bar soap to a shower gel of liquid soap. There is a wave of people making the switch back to the bar. From an environmental standpoint, bar soap eliminates one more plastic bottle from our earth and lasts a long time.
Bar soap is completely hygienic, and because of its alkaline nature it is one of the best antibacterial/antimicrobial cleansers available without all of the harsh toxic chemicals found in other products. Another benefit of using organic bar soap is that it’s primarily comprised of plant-based oils that help nourish the skin, keeping it hydrated and soft.
Pangea’s bar soap packaging was inspired by the discipline of Biomimicry. Biomimicry means to mimic nature. Over 90 million trees are cut down each year to make packaging for products. Pangea utilizes the low impact egg carton manufacturing process. This process takes recycled newsprint and water to make molded fiber boxes. Before the boxes are molded, Pangea adds tree seeds to the mix. When you take the soap out of the box, soak the box for 24 hours, and plant it the soil. Voila! A Spruce tree seedling will emerge.
Our bar soaps are Certified Organic and made from organic Rainforest Alliance Certified sustainable palm oil, organic herbs, and pure essential oils. We spend a lot of time making sure that all of our ingredient sources are sustainable for the earth and for the communities in over 52 countries that produce our ingredients.
So give your skin the nourishment it deserves and plant a forest along the way!
