  • Description
  • How to use
  • What's in it
  • We bring you Bare Necessities Handsoap Powder, Stir it up! Like its name, only get the 10% active ingredients and mix it with water at home. Pay for only the active ingredients and not the huge plastic containers!
    Embracing the strength of Reetha with citrus-y fragrance, this comes together to make an extremely safe, effective and powerful dishwasher!

    Benefits:

    • Lower carbon footprint: we are not transporting heavy containers full of 90% water!
    • Completely compostable packaging: We even use Vegetable Soy Ink (which makes even the writing on the packaging compostable!)
    • Plant-based and earth-friendly ingredients: Good for you, your children, and groundwater!
    • Refreshing fragrances: You will definitely not miss the traditional and conventional that come with loads of ingredients we can't pronounce
    • A repurposed and reusable glass dispenser: A glass dispenser made from waste glass, upcycled and repurposed into beautiful dispensers - buy 1 with your first order and use it forever
    • 100% effective: A luxurious lather that effectively removes surface oil, dirt, bacteria without stripping or drying sensitive skin
    • PVA can be controversial: We chose not to move forward with this because PVA can breakdown into smaller plastics contaminating groundwater.  PVA stands for Polyvinyl Alcohol ; a synthetic plastic polymer that is often used to make thin layers of plastic wrapping and lining, like the wrapping of dishwashers. PVA is a type of plastic, and while it is designed to dissolve, it doesn’t necessarily disappear. The study suggests that over 75% of PVA persists in our waterways and our soil after it dissolves in laundry and dish washing machines, flows through wastewater and ultimately back into our environment.
    • Finally, save money, space, water and compost!

Q. Are these ingredients really eco-friendly and safe to use? Yup! They’re completely biodegradable and are safe to use on all skin types since the pH matches the natural pH of your skin, to avoid any irritation or dryness. So if you have sensitive skin, we got you! And yes, they’re really effective at cleaning well, probably even better than your regular cleaner, haha. Q. Speaking of eco-friendly, why have we chosen to use compostable sachets as opposed to PVA sachets which are commonly used in home care products these days? PVA (Poly Vinyl Alcohol) is actually a synthetic polymer which is often marketed as a lining that can be dissolved. However, studies show that 75% of PVA remains in our waterways and soil systems after being dissolved and requires extremely specific conditions to biodegrade. Hence, our no-fuss solution was compostable sachets that had vegetable ink printed on them, so they can completely disintegrate into the soil. Q. How would you describe the experience of using these powders? We have tried and tested these powders over several months. In addition to the environmental aspect of this, we wanted you to experience the DIY aspect of making your own powders for your kitchen and your bathroom. You can even make an experience in itself with your kids so they truly learn what’s going into their products. Anddddd it is travel friendly so you can carry them with you, to make your cleaners when you’re travelling if required. Buy the dispenser or repurposed bottle only once, and keep it for life. After which you can only get the compostable sachets! :) Q. Any tips for anyone using these powders for the first time? We’ve made your life easier with this one. All you need to do is pour the powder into the glass jar or a 250 ml bottle if you have one. Add in the water and mix well. Make sure you mix with a separate spoon if needed. This avoids any lumps. Oh! I also love that the glass jar is just a one-time buy, that can just be refilled with the powders consequently. Q. How was it making these powders? Franky speaking, it was quite a challenge to develop a concentrated powder that would completely dissolve in water, without taking too long. On top of this, we had to ensure this still provided users with the familiarity they shared with a conventional handwash/dishwashing liquid/bar. We also wanted to make sure that the product itself looks attractive and helps you feel excited about washing your dishes or even your hands (we know how much of a task that can be with children). So we turned to plant-based colours like bilberry to give the handwash a soft purple colour and grapefruit to give the dishwash a fun splash of orange. Fun fact: while we were manufacturing the powders our room smelt like a fresh summer morning if that makes sense haha! Thanks to the natural fragrances that we added in. But once we saw the finished product for the first time all of those failed attempts felt so so worth it! Q. Do you think these powders help foster the conversation on zero waste living? We’ve tried to zero waste to the T with these powders. As you make these powders with your family or with kids, you can help them understand why you’ve chosen to use powders instead of commercial cleaners as most households do. Through your examples, you’re helping them understand the need to lead a conscious lifestyle!
