Bamboo soap bags are a great way of turning your humble soap bar into a luxurious shower experience. It makes your shower plastic free too!

How do you use Bamboo Soap Bags?

Just pop your favourite Maldon soap into the soap bag, do up the drawstring and you’re ready to go!

When you’re in the shower the rubbing action of washing makes the soap lather gently through the bag. It’s so easy to wash and clean your skin with no mess, plus it makes it easier to hang onto your soap too.  No more dropping it and having it sliding everywhere in the shower!

When you’ve finished washing just hang up the bag with the soap inside to dry until next time.

It’s great for keeping your shower tidy whilst prolonging the life of your soap.

Why soap instead of shower gel?

Soap is an amazing product, especially any that you buy from Maldon Soap!

Being an alkali no germs can live on a dry soap bar.  Soap will clean your skin without stripping away its natural moisture barrier.  And a bar lasts for ages.

All Maldon Soaps are made from gorgeous local, organic, vegan, ethically sourced ingredients and a little goes a long way.

In our quest to ditch the plastic we wanted to make it easier for you to make the switch from shower gel to natural soap.

Shower gel is predominantly made from Sodium Laurel/Laureth Sulfate (SLS). This is an industrial strength surfactant (foamer and degreaser).  SLS is only ever manufactured from palm oil so, not only is it harsh and stripping to your skin, it’s pretty bad for the planet too.  A quick google will highlight the many enormous problems that palm oil create.

There are a lot of other companies out there who make their soap is from palm oil.  Some companies even make soap from SLS.  However, you can rest assured that at Maldon Soap we don’t use palm oil or SLS in any of our products.  We never have and we never will.

Handy tip:

I have three of these soap bags in use at the same time. There’s a bamboo one, a ramie one and a sisal one.  I hang them on the shower curtain hooks (I have a shower over my bath) so they’re not near the shower flow.  It’s easy then to just use a different bag each day so that the other two get the chance to dry out properly between uses.

More information about Bamboo Soap Bags:

All the soap bags I sell are machine washable (take the soap out first!)

They are made from natural plant fibres and will last approximately 2-3 months depending on how vigorously and regularly you use them.

We do not recommend using exfoliating soaps in soap bags as, not only will you trap all the exfoliating bits, so your soap won’t exfoliate, but your bag could wear out quicker or tear.

Also shampoos will not work in the bags as they are designed to be rubbed directly on your hair.

Bamboo soap bags are made from 100% sustainable bamboo – a natural, biodegradable fibre which can go in your compost bin or garden waste at the end of its life.

    This is my favourite shower accessory to go with all my lovely handmade soaps. It’s super soft but also makes you feel like you’re getting a very gentle exfoliation. I love the fact that I’m not constantly dropping the soap in the shower! Plus I can hang it up to keep it dry and make the soap last longer. This feels like a really luxurious product for an amazing price!

    This is a fantastic product! It is making my gorgeous Rose & Aloe soap all the more soft and luxurious – as well as easy to use without it slipping out of my hand. Great idea – so much better than shower gel in a bottle (even a refillable one) – and very practical. It’s nice and soft for my over-sensitive skin. I often take my soap out if I want the bag to dry overnight, by the way – which seems to work. Will be interesting to see how long these last (I am optimistic!); I got a ramie bag too so am keen to try that one 🙂

    Very happy with this. Been using it for a few months, having given it a try after finding other types of soap bag (using slightly harsher materials) irritated my skin (yes, even skin-friendly ones!). This bamboo one is perfect. No irritation, and a great way to use soap without losing it or wasting it!
