Want to make your bars look snazzy and last longer? Ethique’s in-shower containers are just the ticket.
Made with bamboo & sugarcane, they are completely compostable* but will last up to five years in your shower or bathroom.
They extend the life of your bars by keeping them dry but allowing them to breathe. These are an improved design- you can fit one shampoo and one conditioner bar per container (they don’t fit our bodywash bars) and they have greater airflow for better drying.
These are certified compostable, but some councils around New Zealand don’t accept these sorts of materials in their commercial facilities. To compost them you can pop them in your compost bin at home, or bury them in the garden if your council doesn’t accept them.
Ethique’s dedication to sustainable beauty practices has prevented the manufacture and disposal of more than 150,000 plastic containers worldwide, and is driven by the hashtag #giveupthebottle. Our customers tell us the same thing again and again. You rave about how well our products work, far surpassing the quality of salon brands. Brianne explains that the reason for this is because the bars are super concentrated and made with potent natural ingredients. Our bars contain no nasties, they are cruelty free and vegan. Solid bars last between three to six times longer (depending on the product) than bottled products because they’re super-concentrated. You add the water not us, and yes our solid beauty bars foam. We use biodegradable ingredients and wrappers so our solid bars leave no trace on the planet. You can pop the compostable wrapping in your compost bin. No bottles, jars, lids or pump dispensers contributing to landfill or oceanic pollution.
We are certified climate neutral, cruelty free and a living wage employer.
