Begin and end each day with a mini-facial. Gentle enough for daily use, this activated charcoal face bar works hard to keep your face clean. The lavender and peppermint essential oils will enliven your skin while the activated charcoal detoxifies it. As the activated charcoal works its magic, the suds will turn from black to light grey or white, and that's when you'll know it's done its job.

Please note that all of our soaps are made by hand and therefore may differ slightly from those pictured.

Packaging + End of Life

These soap bars will either be completely unpackaged or wrapped in reused kraft paper, which can be home composted if there is soap residue left on the wrapping. If the wrapping is completely clean, it can be recycled with curbside paper recycling.

When the bar gets too small to use easily, we recommend adding it to a sisal soap saver bag with any other soap ends you may have.

We ship ugly boxes

Our commitment to sustainability doesn't end when you press that checkout button.

We pack all of our orders in reused boxes and envelopes, with reused paper packaging, post-consumer recycled paper labels, and even paper tape.

You may not get an IG-worthy unboxing, but you will get the most sustainable packaging we can possibly find.

Oh and did we mention our shipping is always carbon negative?

Let's go to the real winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact product many other places, but the packaging A Drop in the Ocean uses to ship will have me coming back time and time gain.

My first purchase from them was some floss a while ago and it arrived in a reused tea box with a hand written note that was written on scrap paper. I was blown away.

I had never seen a company who claimed to be sustainable ACTUALLY prove to be sustainable through and through. The fact that every piece of the packaging was reused and minimal will have me come back over and over again. If I can purchase it here, I will purchase it here.

Spa Treatment

After washing my face with this charcoal face bar I feel like I've been to a spa! This bar has been wonderful for my extra oily skin. No more breakouts for me!

I have used the bar for a week and notice several red bumps breaking out on my face. The last time I used it I had a red rash all over my face. The product is to harsh for sensitive and aging skin.

Best Facial Cleaner I've Ever Used

Using this charcoal facial cleaner it really feels like I went to a spa. I have really oily skin. Since I began using this my face feels great now and I haven't had any breakouts.

Helping with acne and doesn't dry me out

I started using this at the beginning of winter and my skin hasn't dried out using this soap. That was my biggest worry as other bar soaps have done that to me. I am perimenopausal and acne has been an issue the last few years. This soap has fit well within my skin routine and the acne has been very minimal while using it. I think a bar is going to last me forever too, as I hardly use any when I wash.
