Friendly soaps are perfect for introducing simple everyday swaps that are more friendly towards the environment. Within their collections you will find shampoo bars, conditioning bars, cleansing bars, travel bars and shaving bars. There really is a soap to suit everyone and they truly are friendly!
Here are 3 ways that Friendly soap really is friendly!
1 Friendly to the environment
Friendly soap pour, cut, stamp and pack their soaps by hand in the UK. All their packaging is friendly too, because it’s made from materials that are 100% recycled as well as recyclable. How good is this?!
The method that Friendly soap use to make their soaps is an ancient cold-process method which means their soap is totally biodegradable and free from by-products too, so there’s literally no waste. Friendly soap are most definitely playing their part to help us make eco-friendly choices.
2 Friendly to your skin
Friendly soap don’t use harmful preservatives or foaming agents because there’s no real need for SLS or Parabens. The silky-smooth lather produced by Friendly soaps is all down to careful ingredient choice and their cold-process method of making them. Friendly Soap takes time to carefully source the best and ethical ingredients for your skin. The Shea Butter they use is bought from a women’s worker cooperative in Ghana and the Coconut oil they use is taken from coconuts guaranteed not to be harvested by slave monkeys. It's so important for us to start taking notice of the ingredients that we are putting on our skin and how they have been obtained and the potential effects of them on our skin. Good eco-friendly companies will often share the sources of their ingredients with their customers so a simple bit of research will help you discover more about the products you are buying.
3 Friendly to nature
Friendly soaps don’t contain any animal products or by-products and have never been tested on animals, which means they have really earned their registration with Cruelty free International and The Vegan Society.
Friendly Soap say “they have created all their products to leave customers feeling as conscientious as they feel clean”

Every step you make towards a more eco-friendly way of living is one that helps the world. Every eco-friendly swap you make to a plastic free alternative is one less item that is going into a landfill. If everyone made simple eco-friendly choices and changes to their lives, the impact would be huge!
Making eco-friendly swaps is easier than you think. Often, it’s simply a case of replacing an old routine with a new one. We have become so used to using something and throwing it away. Whilst it might be gone from our lives, the packaging and plastic bottles stay around for a very long time. As the world’s population grows, so does the amount of rubbish we produce.
We admit that plastic is an incredibly useful material but because it is meant for durability, it is not biodegradable and it stays around for hundreds of years. Unfortunately, only 9% of the plastic produced every year gets recycled; the majority ends up in landfills or in the environment. Put simply, plastic pollution has begun to negatively impact the natural environment and create problems for plants, wildlife, and even the human population.
Unfortunately there is no single magic bullet that can fix the problem but if everyone makes simple changes, easy swaps, progress will be made.
One eco-friendly swap is well worth making!
