Bathing Culture

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 a safe high quality option.

Earth Friendly Business

River ready 

Our formula is biodegradable. Unlike many other shower products our ingredients are sustainably grown and harvested, none of them are derived from crude oil, and you won’t find any of the crazy chemicals of the old guard. That said, keep it out of natural water ways! Even biodegradable soaps should not be used in naturals waterways.

Bathing Culture roadmap

Accomplishing our roadmap

Every day we take actions to take us down this road. Lately, we've been having a lot of discussions with printers about inks that can hold and testing refill options + bar soap is on the way! We're currently delivering by bike in our home city of San Francisco and are exploring ways to make this scalable.

We need as much help as we can get! Spread the word and recognize that small everyday actions add up! If you've got some skills that would help, someone we should talk to, some chocolate chip cookies or other rad stuff hit us up at @BathingCulture
