To protect the unique formulation of Lucy Bee soaps and to prolong the scent of the essential oils (where applicable), these need to be wrapped in a plastic sachet, which they then pack in an FSC recyclable card carton.
Soaps are normally made from palm oil and a soap made wholly from coconut oil, as ours is, is uncommon.
With its better foaming and lathering qualities than soaps made with palm oil, this unique formula means the soap can sweat, which presents something of a challenge to them in storing it, hence the use of flow wrap.
Lucy Bee realise that this is not ideal and assure you that the packaging weight is minimised, and the material is recyclable.
Lucy Bee continue to investigate for suitable alternatives and, if found, they will look to replace this with a biodegradable solution.
The FSC card carton is recyclable, compostable and biodegradable.
