All Natural: Where to Get Organic Soap Bars in Hong Kong

If someone tells you that some soap bars can be bad for the environment, would you believe them? After all, soap bars aren’t in plastic containers (unlike body wash) and they’re usually available in carton packaging. What’s the harm, right?

Believe it or not, some commercial soap bars can harm the environment and, of course, your skin too! They contain synthetic chemicals that can dehydrate the skin and aggravate existing skin conditions. Moreover, when rinsed down the drain, the chemicals can pollute waterways and even harm aquatic ecosystems. This is why many people are shifting to organic soaps.

Ready to save the environment and your skin? Here’s where you can get organic soap bars in Hong Kong. 

Coconut Matter

Founded in 2015, Coconut Matter is “the first zero-waste beauty range that will drive you coconuts!” As one of Hong Kong’s natural beauty pioneers, they bring mindfulness and love to every beauty routine by using natural ingredients. They use fair trade, organic virgin coconut oil from rural Solomon Island, which provides livelihood to its communities.

Their soap scrubs (HK$96) come in different types with unique scents: VELVET (sweet coconut), FIRE (sweet citrus), EARTH (soft peppermint), and WOOD (coconut with lemon eucalyptus). If you don’t like scented soaps, you can get their WILD Coconut Oil Soap Scrub instead. All orders come with a reusable soap bag made from sisal plant, which can also be used as a natural exfoliator.

For more details, you can visit Coconut Matter’s official website or follow their Instagram. You can also get their products from Live Zero, Spice Box Organics, and Organic We.
