Ramie Soap Bag

(2 customer reviews)


Do you want to ditch the plastic shower gel bottle? This ramie soap bag is a great way to do it. The bag gives your skin a gentle exfoliating scrub while enriching the lather of the soap inside. 

Pop your favourite Maldon soap into the bag, tighten the toggle, wet the bag and that’s it. You’re all set to enjoy the rich lather created by the bag as you massage your skin. 

Afterwards, you can just hang up the bag with the soap still inside. It’s a great way to keep your shower clean and tidy, and it helps your soap last longer too. 

The ramie soap bag is machine washable so feel free to swap your soaps around as much as you like. It’s made from 100% natural fibre and depending on how vigorously you scrub, will last 2 or 3 months.

How do you use Ramie 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 Ramie Soap Bags

Ramie is a member of the nettle family and has been around for 6,000 years. 

Ramie is resistant to bacteria and mildew, and increases in strength when wet. It’s 100% biodegradable so at the end of its life, the bag can go in your compost bin or garden waste where it will break naturally down over time.

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.

  1. Helen

    This soap bag is perfect if you’re looking for a very gentle exfoliation. You really can use it all over. It’s not too harsh and is very forgiving on sensitive skin. It creates a sumptuous lather when paired with Maldon Soap (for me, it’s particularly the pure coconut soap) and holds onto the bar well, so it doesn’t slide about inside the bag. So pleased I purchased this little bag – it’s marvellous!

    This is fantastic, the soap lathers up really well inside the bag and then the bag gently exfoliates your skin while washing, this is brilliant for little hands that struggle to keep hold of a bar of soap so no more chasing the soap around the bath tub for my little one. It also dries really quickly even with the soap inside. Will be buying one for everyone to have their own soap in.
