Running through hand soap at a rapid pace? Necessity is the mother of invention, and our latest discovery is DIY foaming hand wash made from our plant-powered body wash. Truth be told, here at Phlur HQ we have been doing this since we launched the product. (In case you were wondering, our favorite scent to use as hand wash is S.C. 59).
Our super simple recipe is below.
As the makers of beautifully scented clean body washes and body lotions, we get asked this a lot. Yes, it’s great that our products bear the same stunning scents as our award-winning fine fragrances. And yes, those fragrances are considered “clean,” and there’s something of a general understanding of what that means and why it’s important. (TL;dr: Clean fragrance is made without preservatives or certain types of musks, and generally produced and packaged in a way that minimizes harm to the environment.)
But when we say our body care products are clean, what are we really saying? We spoke with Mary Berry, the founder and CEO of The Goodkind Co—the Austin-based company that collaborated with us on our washes and lotions—to find out. Here’s what she told us.
We love our Redwood-inspired fragrance, Sandara, and it turns out you do, too—the scent has been one of our bestsellers since we introduced it last year. In fact, some of you even begged us (politely!) to turn it into something you could rub all over your body. Well, your wish, our command and all that: Sandara body wash and lotion are finally here, with the same meditative scent, crafted by the same amazing perfumer, Gino Percontino.
To find out how he did it, we… asked him how he did it. Keep reading to find out what he told us—including why he says Sandara is “sexy in a new way.”
