Ingredients & Benefits - Anti-Itch Soap Bar for Camping
This bar is one of our most popular products since it is both effective and relieving. It's good for soothing skin irritations due to bug bites, poison ivy, poison oak, poison sumac, and other agitating plants. The bar has a refreshing lemongrass scent.
The ingredients are as natural as they come, containing only organic coconut oil, olive oil, sunflower oil, hemp oil, lemongrass oil, tea tree oil, lemon oil, jewelweed, plantain, turmeric, walnut, and comfrey.

Carbon Neutral Purchases
Our goal is to make your purchase as close to carbon neutral as possible. We effect this through the following actions:
Our manufacturer, Mooseberry, uses local ingredients that are sourced from the area near their warehouse in New York state, thus reducing the carbon footprint of their manufacturing process.
For each purchase made on our site, we donate an amount to One Tree Planted that is equivalent to the average emissions of an online purchase, thus offsetting the emissions for most purchases.
No Expedited Shipping
Although the average carbon emissions of an online purchase are lower than most brick-and-mortar purchases, this effect is negated when you choose expedited or 2-day shipping (cough: Amazon Prime). In order to further reduce the carbon impact of purchases from our store, we do not offer expedited or 2-day shipping. Your purchases will be sent using the most economical transportation option for your wallet and the environment. You should expect most to arrive within 5 to 7 business days of your order. We apologize for any inconvenience this may cause, but hope you understand our justifications for this business decision.
We carefully choose our manufacturers based on their sustainability and environmental standards. All our partners create vegetarian or vegan, cruelty-free, sustainably manufactured products. We only sell products that are good for you, and for the planet.
Minimal Waste Packaging
A few of our products come in zero waste packaging, which means that all packaging is biodegradable, compostable, and/or reusable. These products are: RePrint's Camp Dust and Lake Soap products; and NaturOli's soap nut berries detergents. Our other products use as little plastic packaging as possible. For our products that do come in plastic (or glass) packaging, most packaging is recyclable. Our goal is for our products to be as waste free as possible. We are aware that shipping packaging adds to product waste, but currently don't know how to mitigate this. If you have suggestions, feel free to reach out to firstname.lastname@example.org!
What are Soap & Shampoo Bars?
Soap & shampoo bars are highly concentrated bundles of shampoo/soap that are perfectly designed for travel - be it on a plane or hiking in the backcountry. Packed with 100% natural ingredients and essential oils, they're designed to remove excess oils while nourishing the scalp and skin without the use of sulfates or excess packaging.
All soap and shampoo bars featured on our site are biodegradable, which makes them perfect for use while camping or backpacking because they are safe to be rinsed into the environment. They easily fit into a carry-on, and are a breeze to take through TSA since they're a solid. They also create a lower carbon footprint than regular shampoo since they're multi-purpose, are highly concentrated (so less is more!), and utilize minimal, non-plastic packaging.
Key Benefits - Camping & Travel Products
Our travel and camping products are multi-purpose, which means one product will fit many needs. For example, all our bars work as both shampoo and soap bars (we've also used them to rinse clothes, and they've worked well for that too...). Some of our lotions and bars have the added benefit of being bug repellents. All our products help you do more with less, thus saving you money and space while helping the environment.
Our camping and travel products' smaller size makes them optimal to fit in a backpack or carry-on.
Many of our camping and travel products are highly concentrated. Although they're physically smaller, you get as much or more product as you do with the regular sizes.
Who wants to waste precious space in your bag on unnecessary packaging? Our products use as little packaging as possible to save you space, and reduce environmental waste. We offer products with zero plastic packaging as frequently as possible.
