The problem is obvious: liquid soap is essentially bottled water. By making the simple switch to a powder solution, FORGO cuts out single-use plastic altogether and dramatically reduces the environmental impact of shipping personal care products. 30 refills ship in the space of one bottle.
Together with a lab specialising in natural cosmetics, Form Us With Love iterated on the idea of a sustainable alternative to liquid soap. One sachet contains approximately twelve grams of powder. Just those twelve grams makes a full bottle of foaming hand wash with 250ml of hot tap water. Every aspect of the product was considered; the fragrances, for example, are derived from recycled materials such as citrus peels and lumber scrap. It took many tries and failures to find out what worked when shipping a truly plastic-free product.
One small paper sachet contains the essential ingredients needed to turn regular tap water into a full bottle of foaming hand wash— in under a minute. It’s simple.
