Is there such thing as a friendly soap?

Ever since I started my plastic free journey I’ve been searching for a soap that could replace my plastic pump Baylis and Harding hand wash. After learning lots about harmful chemicals in beauty products I wanted something less harsh with no SLS. My posh handwash was full of them, and it’s no surprise than my hands had become dry with what I suspected to be dermatitis spreading.

I found a few suitable alternatives on Amazon but at over £6 per bar it was a little expensive. I kept looking and read a few reviews and The Friendly Soap company came up several times.

At only £2.10 (weirdly specific) these were a bargain in comparison to the others I’d looked at. I decided that at that price I may as well give them a try.

I ordered three bars from as the postage was £1 cheaper than the Friendly Soap website. I chose Orange and Grapefruit, Lemon and hemp and a wild card Lavender and geranium shampoo bar (more about that in another post)

They arrived packaged in a recycled cardboard box, with absolutely zero plastic in sight. I was very impressed by this.

First impressions

The soaps smell lovely, there’s something really nice about a hand made, natural soap. I couldn’t wait to use it.

The verdict

The soap lathers up really well, much better than any soap I’ve used in the past, so it works well as a replacement for shower gel.

So, I’ve been using Friendly soap for over a week to wash my hands and body. As I mentioned before I had the beginnings of dermatitis on my hand and the patch seemed to be spreading, but ever since I’ve been using the soap the patch has completely healed up! It’s honestly crazy! I am so happy about this! I also had eczema patches on my arms which have almost gone now too.

For this reason I’m giving Friendly Soap bath soap ⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️⭐️

I absolutely love them and I would highly recommend them. In fact, I love them so much I’ve just ordered four more bars! This time I purchased from Wild Earth Beauty, and if you subscribe to their newsletter before purchase you will receive 15% your order! You’re welcome 😊
