Hand in Hand Sustainable Suds Soap Saves Lives

I stopped buying bars of soap at the drugstore and supermarket. I feel that you can do so much better by purchasing a better quality, non-chemical bar for the same price or less.

Bill & Courtney realized this too.

"The goal was to come up with a household product people use every day, that had the power to save lives.  After 3 years of brainstorming, we came across an article reporting that each year over 5 million people die of diseases caused by poor water quality and lack of proper hygiene.  After further research, we discovered that half of those deaths could be prevented with just a single bar of soap.  It was at that moment that Hand in Hand was conceived" explained Courtney.  

With Hand in Hand Sustainable Suds, you can actually save a child's life. With every bar you purchase, a bar is donated to those in need and 50 square feet of rainforest is saved. 

That alone should have you switching to Hand in Hand, but then there's the actual soap to consider, now also available at Anthropologie. This triple-milled shea butter soap has only 8 ingredients and is Fair Trade USA and Natural Products Association certified. It has a lovely soft scent - orange blossom - and amazingly thick lather.

What's unique about this soap is that it feels quite lotion-y and soft while you're washing and afterwards, your skin practically squeaks clean, yet is still very soft. There's none of that dryness that can sometimes accompany an effective bar of soap. I've never experienced this combination before. Quite remarkable too, when you consider that the soap is 100% vegetable based with vegan and organic ingredients and not relying on chemicals and other harmful ingredients. It's also biodegradable and free of gluten, palm oil, parabens and petrochemicals, so go ahead and use it head to toe, on everyone from the little ones to Grandma and Grandpa.

And if all that's not enough to convince you that this is one of the best soaps you can buy - not to mention lifechanging - , all shipments include carbon offset and eco-friendly packaging that's so pretty, you won't need to wrap these bars when gifting them to friends and family.

Hand to Hand Sustainable Suds is so much more than simply a bar of soap. It's the chance to do good.
