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.
Safe for People and Planet
Our formulas are biodegradable, they won’t last longer than you or your great-great grandkids. That said, even biodegradable soaps shouldn’t be used in natural waterways.
Our formulas are concentrated, feel free to dilute or just use a dab.
Our formulas are made to be safe and effective for your entire body
Our formulas are always Dye free, Sulfate free, Paraben free, chemical fragrance free, chemical foaming agents free.
Purely Plants and Minerals
None of our ingredients derived from crude oil, or synthetic chemicals
We use primarily organically grown plants free from pesticides and herbicides.
We use ingredients primarily from North America, this keeps our carbon costs down
We work with farms and processors that pay a living wage
We only use abundant plants and minerals, that are responsibly harvested
To ensure ingredients haven’t adulterated we get chain of custody paperwork from our suppliers
We’ve been certified vegan and cruelty free
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.
We hold refill events 12 times a year and have partnered with 15 retailers around the country who will refill your bottles.
We’re shifting all of our labels to silkscreening.
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.
Ultimately, the future we all want is to leave the world better than we found it; healthy and safe with opportunity for our families and communities. That’s something every healthy person, no matter their country or politics, can agree on. We are not against agitating to ensure this happens.
