This story started with washing hands. Several times a day, dozens of times a week, hundreds of times a month. Have you ever wondered why your hands are clean after washing and sometimes a few moments later the skin on your hands becomes unpleasantly dry and tight? We have. You can blame poor quality of water (chlorine) or time of the year (cold, wind or heat). But most often this is the liquid sop to blame! How do we know that? Because we use it every day and we have collaborated with cosmetic and chemical companies for many years and we know what such products can contain. Liquid soap should be a simple cosmetic which consists mainly of vegetable washing, preserving and aroma substances. However, these days producers more and more often add artificial colourants, aromas, silicones, preservatives, detergents (e.g. SLS — Sodium Lauryl Sulfate) and foaming substances (e.g. SLES — Sodium Laureth Sulfate). Why? To make the soap look better, more durable, more aromatic as well as to improve its foamin propertie. Is it necessary? On the contrary, it is redundant. Those supplements most often cause dry and irritated hand skin and are source of allergy.
When we discovered what damages our hands while washing and decided what liquid soaps we would like to use, we started searching for them in chemists. Buy soap — easy-peasy. Actually, not quite. There so many of them indeed.
But good and nice soaps are sparse and more expensive. Pay for a basic washing cosmetic as much as for a face cream? This is ridiculous! We said No and decided to set up a company to prove that it is possible to produce liquid soaps and washing agents which are:
- Best quality
- Gentle for the skin
- Originally and nicely scented
- Packed in specially designed modern packaging
