Shower Blocks are bars of solid shower gel, designed to reduce plastic waste from the millions of discarded shower gel bottles going to landfill and into our oceans every year.
In 2019 founder Neil started to feel frustrated about the amount of shower gel bottles he was getting through and decided he wanted to find an option that was plastic free. His research showed him he was not alone, so he spent 2020 teaching himself to make cosmetics from scratch, experimenting with different oil blends and developing long lasting fragrances. The result is Shower Blocks which he launched in November 2020.
Each block is handmade in the UK from a blend of six nourishing plant based oils and is cleverly formulated as a shower gel in solid form. It lathers up quickly with water, and skin is left feeling fresh and nourished without the drying, squeaky feeling that can often be experienced when using some traditional soap bars.
Hand made in the UK using 96% naturally derived ingredients. Contains RSPO certified sustainable palm oil and a small amount of fragrance oil and colouring. Vegan friendly, and SLS and paraben free. Each bar should last about a month with daily use and is presented in a recyclable card box.
Shower Blocks support Toiletries Amnesty, whose aim is to alleviate hygiene poverty while reducing waste by connecting donors to the places and people that need these products the most. For every Shower Block sold a mini Shower Block is donated.
