soap flakes

This is a brilliant brilliant idea! Soap Flakes by Nathalie Stämpfli gives you the hygienic plus side of liquid soap, where you don’t have to be touching the wet bar soap of the previous user, and the plus side of bar soaps, which are great at saving space in shipping containers instead of moving water all around the globe.

Today, most of the soap we use is liquid soap, which contains a lot of water. Block soap instead is more concentrated and therefore has some ecological benefits: You don’t transport unnecessary water around. In place of plastic bottles you can simply use paper for packaging. The solid blocks can easily be piled and allow a greater space efficiency in a truck.
