I received a Soapbox Soap package with a variety of their products. I first want to say that for the price of the product and the fact that if you spend $49 or more you get free shipping, you’re getting a good deal. The bars of soap are large and last quite a while. Our family goes through a bar of soap about every other day and this has been in our shower almost a week.
The Sea Minerals Bar Soap has a clean fresh scent and retails for $3.99 a bar. The Vanilla Liquid Hand Soap is $3.99 and comes in a larger bottle than you would receive in the store. It suds and spreads well on your hands and smells really nice. You can also use less and the pump dispenses just the right amount in the first pump. The Coconut Body Wash with Wishea Butter smells good but isn’t over powering and retails for $5.99. Their hair care products also retail for $5.99 each. Why am I giving you the prices? Because I wanted to show you that for what you would pay in any store you’re getting a great product that is giving back to someone in need.
Giving a gift that gives back and introducing the recipient to the company with a great product is a double bonus. Soapbox Soaps gives a bar of soap to a person in need for every product sold. They give the soap to those in need both in the US and abroad. Each of their products has a unique Hope Code which, if entered will show you which project your purchase will support.
Soapbox Soaps website is full of information in their “How We Give” section that will tell you about where they are giving and the people they are giving the soap to.
The Soapbox Soaps Story & Mission:
SoapBox Soaps was founded in 2010 with a simple mission: to empower people to change the world through everyday, quality purchases. Our founder, David Simnick, made the first batch of soap in his college apartment kitchen while still at American University. Six years later our products are in retailers across the nation and over one million donations have been made! Simnick was inspired to start SoapBox after interning for both non-profit and for profit companies during college and joining a USAID contractor post college. The experiences led him to realize that hygiene aid wasn’t being implemented to its fullest potential and wasn’t being paired with essential items like soap. That’s when it hit him: combine a love of entrepreneurship with the need of hygiene products. He called up his best friend and told him the idea, SoapBox Soaps was born, and the rest is in the suds!
