SoapBox Soaps: Each Organic Soap Purchased Sends Soap To Those In Need

Here at Miss A, we are obsessed with style but, in our hearts, we also love charity and are always searching for the latest in high quality, feel-good products. We have definitely found a wonderful gem in SoapBox Soaps!

Soaps are a traditional and perfect hostess gift for any occasion, so why not consider a gift with a fabulously charitable twist?

When you get your first bar of SoapBox Soap, you soon realize that their soap is different from most commercial soaps. While most commercial soaps lose glycerin, a key moisturizing agent produced during the saponification process (the chemical reaction required to produce soap), their soaps are made with 9-10% glycerin. This means that while other soaps may last longer on the shelf, once they come home with you they fail to moisturize your hands.

SoapBox Soaps also does not add sodium laurel sulfate or other lathering agents to their soap. These synthetic compounds often dry out and irritate skin. Instead, SoapBox creates their luxurious lather through the use of natural ingredients and organic oils. They also refuse to add parabens and chemicals used as preservatives in the cosmetic and pharmaceutical industries, in all of their soaps.

SoapBox does not stand for adding artificial additives in their organic bars.

When you buy a bar of Soapbox’s soap, the company sends a companion bar to a child in need. The aid soap doesn’t look or smell like the soap that you buy. The bars of soap that are donated are a mission-specific formula which is different than the bar sold to retail customers. This is because the soap sent around the world has to be formulated for all types of temperatures, humidity levels, storage conditions and water properties. SoapBox’s mission-specific soap formula is specially designed to be gentle on all skin types (similar to baby soap), particularly for people who may have never used soap before. Despite the differences between the retail bar and the relief bar, the relief bar is still made with all natural ingredients, is glycerin based and is of the same high quality as the bars sold online and in stores.

The world is facing a major health crisis. Millions of people around the globe live in unhealthy hygienic conditions, with more than 22,000 children dying every day from diseases such as diarrhea, cholera and typhoid. These diseases can easily be prevented by washing with clean water and a simple bar soap. Sadly, this basic, yet important, commodity is not available where it is needed most. More can be done to clean and improve the lives of impoverished people around the world.  

SoapBox Soaps is ready to deliver.

SoapBox Soaps provides its customers with a one-of-a-kind experience: to enjoy one of the best bars of soap available in the world along with a chance to improve the world through a direct donation of soap through each one purchased.

The donated bars of soap will travel around the world to where they are needed the most.  SoapBox Soaps has non-profit partners in several major U.S. cities, as well as several international aid organizations, to make sure our reach is global.

Here are some organizations that this awesome company partners with:
