Shops where you can buy sustainable feminine bars
A whole new level of zero-waste life
Jun 20, 2018
Bars are a thing now. They’re easy to make, transport, and most importantly, they leave no plastic trash—unlike the ones available commercially with single-use plastic packaging. And if only we can make every personal care product into bars, we would, but we can’t.
Luckily, some people already took the initiative and developed shampoo and lotion into bars. Now, there are actually feminine bars to complete the trinity. Here are some shops where you can buy some:
Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm
Ilog Maria Honeybee Farm sells various plant- and bee products-based body care items. It sells honey propolis feminine bars that protect your intimate area from fungal, viral, and bacterial infections. Bee propolis or honey propolis is known for its properties that fight inflammation, soothe, and protect the skin.
Paraluman also carries honey-propolis feminine bars, but theirs contain more ingredients than Ilog Maria’s—they have peppermint, tea tree oil, and sampaguita, which give your feminine area a slightly cooling sensation. Fret not—the ingredients may look a lot, but they are still gentle and balancing for the skin.
Her “gentlest bar of soap,” Daniela Calumba’s intimate cleanse bar is handmade with extra virgin olive oil and organic cocoa butter. It’s also enriched with organic apple cider vinegar, a natural skin pH balancer, and organic aloe vera, which soothes and smoothens the skin.
