At Bathing Culture, we’re committed to making the highest quality products without harming you or the planet. 

We believe the environmental crisis has reached a critical tipping point, too many everyday personal products are complacent in contributing to harming personal and environmental health.


We're proud to give you safe, high quality options.

Sustainable Sourcing

Purely Plants and Minerals
None of our ingredients derived from crude oil, or synthetic chemicals 

Organic
We use primarily organically grown plants free from pesticides and herbicides.  

Domestic
We use ingredients primarily from North America, this keeps our carbon costs down 

Ethical
We work with farms and processors that pay a living wage 

Abundant
We only use abundant plants and minerals, that are responsibly harvested

Traced
To ensure ingredients haven’t adulterated we get chain of custody paperwork from our suppliers 

Certified
We’ve been certified vegan and cruelty free 

#NoNewPlastic

Reincarnated bottles
The bottles we use are made from 100% pre-existing recycled material, collected and reprocessed in the state of California. This means #nonewplastic AND it stops existing plastic from ending up in the landfill or ocean.

Refills
We hold refill events 12 times a year and have partnered with 15 retailers around the country who will refill your bottles.

Silk screening

We’re shifting all of our labels to silkscreening.

Stakeholder accountability
We’ve refused to work with groups that don’t put planet before profit. We’ve been able to convince Urban Outfitters among others to begin accepting environmentally friendly packaging.   

We are on pace to use #nonewplastic before the end of 2020. 

Plastic free shipping containers.
