Hand Soap

Do you ever stop to think about all the things your hands come into contact with throughout the day? Well, perhaps it's better not to dwell on that. What you should definitely consider, though, is what you use to wash your hands. Did you know that most regular hand soaps contain various harmful substances that can be detrimental to the environment, your home, or your body? That needs to change, and it can! Marcel's hand soap is crafted with ingredients that are not only gentle on your skin but also on the planet. Our eco-friendly hand soap is loaded with plant-based ingredients, is at least 97% biodegradable, 100% vegan, and the bottles are made from 100% recycled plastic. What more could you ask for? A delightful scent, perhaps? Well, we've got that covered too. How about Patchouli & Cranberry? Or maybe you prefer the classic Lavender & Rosemary? Discover your favourite fragrance today.

To answer that question, let's take a quick trip to our soap lab for a chemistry lesson. Pay close attention, okay? Hand soap – and any other type of soap, for that matter – enables oil to mix with water. And yes, that's quite remarkable, considering we all know that water and oil don't naturally blend! Soap essentially acts like a magnet: one part of the soap molecule repels water and attaches to oils on the skin (most dirt is greasy or oil-based), while the other part does the opposite and bonds with water. This allows the oil to mix with water, effectively rinsing away the dirt on your hands. Are you still with me? So, this is why your hands feel so clean after using hand soap. Pretty amazing, isn't it?

Unlike regular hand soap, eco-friendly hand soap is packed with biodegradable ingredients. You won't find substances that can be harmful to the environment, your home, or your body (think parabens, acids, ammonia, chlorine, and dyes) in our eco-friendly hand soap. It might surprise you, but our skin is one of the largest organs in our body (yes, really!), and it plays a crucial role in keeping our body clean and healthy. So, why would you want to expose it to harmful substances? Exactly. With Marcel's Green Soap eco-friendly hand soap, you can wash your hands as often as you like because it contains plant-based glycerin, which ensures super-soft skin. An added benefit: by choosing eco-friendly hand soap, you're also contributing to keeping the planet clean. Feels much better, doesn't it? That's the kind of hand soap that brings joy.

To get straight to the point: not every hand soap is disinfectant, and that's a good thing! Disinfectants contain substances that kill bacteria, including the beneficial ones. So, it's not practical to constantly disinfect your hands. Regularly washing your hands with water and hand soap is sufficient. If someone is ill in your household, you might consider using a disinfecting hand soap (similar to what's used in hospitals). For everyday use, just go ahead and choose our eco-friendly hand soap.

Washing your hands with water and hand soap is the best and least harmful way to clean your hands. Disinfectants such as hand sanitizer with alcohol are actually not necessary. They are not necessary, but admittedly, they can be quite convenient from time to time, especially in exceptional situations when you don't have the opportunity to wash your hands with water and hand soap for an extended period. Like when you're in the car, for example. And of course, Marcel has thought of those moments too! With our hygienic hand wipes, which are also 100% biodegradable, you can clean your hands at any time. Ideal for when you're on the go!
