Why we love soap bars

Why we love soap bars

When it comes to personal hygiene, the choice between using soap bars or shower gel is a common dilemma. Both options have their own set of benefits, and it is common for people to rotate between the two. At DONUM EST, we love our soap bars and we will tell you just why.  

Environmental Impact

Soap bars are generally considered to be more environmentally friendly than shower gel. Most soap bars come in minimal packaging or even no packaging at all, reducing waste. On the other hand, shower gel often comes in plastic bottles that contribute to pollution and landfill waste.


Soap bars tend to last longer than shower gel. A single soap bar can outlast multiple bottles of shower gel, making it a more cost-effective option in the long run. This longevity also means less frequent trips to the shops to restock on personal care products.

Skin Benefits

Soap bars are known for their moisturising properties and gentle cleansing abilities. Many soap bars contain natural ingredients like shea butter, coconut oil, and essential oils that nourish the skin. They are often free of harsh chemicals that can strip the skin of its natural oils and typically have simpler formulations with fewer synthetic chemicals.


Soap bars are compact and solid, making them ideal for travel. They are not subject to liquid restrictions like shower gel, making them convenient for carrying in your luggage or gym bag. Soap bars are also less likely to leak or spill during transit.

From their environmental impact to their skin-friendly properties, our soap bars are hand picked to offer a multitude of advantages for those looking to elevate their personal care routine.
