Sustainable Bar Soap: Make the Switch and Save the Planet!

Sustainable Bar Soap: Make the Switch and Save the Planet!

Body wash has dominated the soap industry, yet it carries undesirable consequences for our environment and our health. Each year, approximately 238 million individuals use body wash from plastic containers, resulting in a staggering 1.4 billion bottles that eventually find their way into our oceans. By 2050, it is expected that the amount of plastic in our oceans will outweigh all of the fish that live there. This poses a threat to our marine life and to us.


Plastics that end up in the ocean or in landfills eventually break down into microplastics. Microplastics are present in all of the world's oceans and are easily mistaken by wildlife as food. Microplastics contain various chemicals that act as endocrine disruptors and carcinogens. These substances have detrimental effects on our health when fish ingest them and subsequently become part of our food chain.

Fontana is proud to be part of the solution to the problem with our Triple Milled Soap Bar Collection and soap bags!

Our bar soaps are 100% non-toxic, chemical and dye free, made from and packaged in entirely natural materials. We like to say that inside and out, there isn’t a cleaner bar soap in the world.

We pride ourselves on all of our products being MADE SAFE® certified free of any and all toxins known to harm the health of humans, animals, or ecosystems.

We make sustainability our priority, so we do everything in our power to avoid plastic in our packaging.

Not only are our soap bars more concentrated and longer lasting than your average bottle of body wash (which contain mostly water!), but our Exfoliating Soap Saver Bags are also an excellent sustainable alternative made from the agave plant native to South America. When used in combination, they create an incredible exfoliating soap that not only cleanses but also moisturizes, leaving your skin feeling refreshed and nourished!
