The origin of bar soaps dates all the way back to 2800 BC. Since then, bar soap has been an essential part of our lives, however, the popularity of bar soaps has slowly decreased due to its convenient sibling, the liquid soap. Let’s discover the reasons why bar soap is coming back.
Our world is a precious place and we need to take care of it. The rising amount of plastic waste and the microplastics in our water is a terrifying result of our consumer society. Bar soaps have become quite popular because they are a good solution for people who want to decrease their plastic waste.
If they are packaged in paper, all bar soaps are plastic-free. Blacktree offers its bar soaps in recyclable paper boxes which has no impact on plastic waste. Feel proud to be part of this movement!
No SLS and parabens
Most of the liquid soaps in the market contain Sodium Lauryl Sulphate (SLS) as their main ingredient. This ingredient is unfortunately harmful to our skin.
Bar soaps don’t have these ingredients. However, when buying a bar soap you should be looking if they contain any titanium dioxide, EDTA (or similar preservatives), dyes, and salt. Unfortunately, these ingredients can also be harmful to you and decrease the quality of your soap.
As Blacktree, we don’t use any of these harmful ingredients. Our formula consists of saponified olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil, a bit of naturally sourced perfume, and rosemary leaf extract. No chemical detergents, preservatives, salt or dyes.
Feeling on the skin
Some generations might remember the bar soaps in the 60s, 70s and 80s. Most of them were produced with the industry in mind. Therefore the industry was producing soaps that were hard and made from inferior ingredients. Today the situation is different. There are some soap producers who focus on offering high-quality soaps made from high-quality materials.
Blacktree’s bar soaps are made from premium olive oil and you will immediately feel the quality on your skin. Our soaps are smooth, soft and they nourish your skin. Forget about the misconception of old and low-quality industrial soaps.
A bar soap offers a unique bathroom experience because unlike liquid soap, it’s always in contact with air, therefore it will make your bathroom smell unbelievably good. It also looks great when it is combined with a nice soap holder.
Some say that bar soaps have a nostalgic feeling that brings back childhood memories. That is indeed true for a lot of people. Our grandmothers knew how to pick the best soaps.
Blacktree’s bar soaps come in 6 different scents and they all smell amazing. It will give your bathroom the scent that it needs. Your guests will be amazed by the smell and their skin will thank you after.
Great cleaning power
Bar soaps have great cleaning power and they clean without hurting your skin. There is a misconception that bar soaps are not hygienic because more people touch it, however, this is not true. Bacteria cannot live on the surface of the bar soap. Therefore, there’s no need to worry about that.
Contains natural glycerine
After the world war, commercial soap factories realized that they can extract the natural glycerine from soap and sell it for higher prices. Unlike these producers, we don’t extract the glycerine from our soaps and your skin will immediately feel this.
Stimulate your 3 senses
A good soap should stimulate your 3 senses. It should look, smell and feel good. Bar soaps are great for these because they offer a unique experience to the user.
Blacktree’s bar soaps offer this wonderful sense stimulation to grant you the best bathroom experience you can imagine. Our 150gr bar is hand-shaped therefore every single soap is unique. On a soap dish with a good drain you will use the soap until it becomes blade thin.
