Buy One.
Give Back.

We didn’t start a business to make personal care products. We started it to make a difference. In 2011, millions of children were dying each year from water-related illnesses that could be prevented with hand washing alone. So we got an idea: what if we could create a soap that could also save lives? With that, our BUY ONE, GIVE BACK program (and company) were born.

With every purchase, we provide soap and clean water to children in need.

*Totals to-date, since 2011

Working hand in hand to expand our global impact.

When it comes to giving back, we believe more is more. So in addition to our BUY ONE, GIVE BACK program, we also partner with two incredible organizations to deepen our impact at the community level. This includes installing and repairing clean water wells as well as recycling and distributing leftover hotel soap.
