Not only is it fully biodegradable, but plant also-based liquid soap they can clean anything. Dilute the concentration to make floor cleaner, shampoo, laundry detergent, and if you are feeling brave, you can even use it to brush your teeth (so they say)!
Ditch the liquid soap! These bars are certified vegan, cruelty-free, palm oil-free, AND smell amazing! Each bar is the equivalent of 3 bottles of liquid shampoo which will help eliminate plastic use and help fight against climate change.
