naturally occurring glycerine) and comes in a plastic-free packaging. Plus, as it is handmade, every soap bar unique varying in design and weight!

Elicious: sustainable soap dishes
This brand produces sustainable items made from bamboo and ceramics. Bamboo has become very popular and for good reason: it is convenient to use and prevents deforestation.

On the other hand, choosing ceramics is also ecologically responsible. This product is 100% composed of natural materials and is produced by hand with no harmful effects on the environment. Plus, it lasts super long.

ZO only produces products that biodegrade easily because the raw materials for their cleaning agents and soaps occur in nature. That’s why you’ll never see hazard symbols on the packaging! Rest assured: all their items are safe for humans, animals and materials. Besides, their production process occurs in the Netherlands to keep transport limited.
