Freshening your delicate garments with an all-natural soap bar is the new normal.
Fourth St, New Zealand’s curators of elevated home essentials, just raised the laundry bar game with their new hand-crafted, cold-pressed, locally made soap.
Natural. No chemicals, no synthetic preservatives, no surfactants, no parabens, no artificial fragrances. Less chance of skin itchiness or irritation. More chance of improving skin conditions such as eczema and acne.
Scent. Fourth St’s laundry bars are made with notes of citrus, cedarwood and bergamot, meaning whatever you wash will have a great aroma. Could even forgo your morning deodorant routine and potentially still smell quite nice by the end of the day?
Process. Made in New Zealand, these bars create less carbon footprint-movement, especially ideal for a use-every-now-and-then item. And, because the residue breaks down easily, there’s less environmental impact. No post-down-the-drain problems. No testing on animals. And, in this fine case, no plastic packaging issues.
