Powder-to-Liquid Hand Soap (Limited Release)

Regular price$10.00
Pump Bottle?

Our limited release holiday powder-to-liquid hand soap refills are the ultimate expressions of the holiday season, with three seasonal favorite scents delighting your senses with every use.

Did you know that liquid soaps are typically at least 80% water? If you're a fan of liquid soap but want to slash your carbon shipping emissions, this plastic-free powder-to-liquid hand soap is for you. Each aluminum tube of powder makes a full bottle of creamy, hydrating, liquid hand soap, but weighs just one ounce on its own. Just mix with water!

For extra sustainability, we recommend reusing a bottle you've already got at home. But if you're looking for a new, reusable, glass pump bottle, we've got you covered.

Note that this is not foaming hand soap. This is a creamy hand soap that will not work with a foaming pump. Besides, did you know foaming soap is just watered-down soap with a specialty pump? This soap fights bacteria better and leaves your hands soft and moisturized.

Smells like...

Festive Season: A baked apple pie, fresh out of the oven.
Frosted Pine: Hiking through a pine forest after a fresh coating of snow.
Champagne Sparkles: That first crisp, refreshing, effervescent sip of a glass of bubbly on New Year's Eve.


Each 1-ounce tube of powder makes 9 ounces of liquid hand soap.


Sodium Lauryl Sulfoacetate, Algin, Sodium Gluconate, Fragrance Oil, Kaolin Clay

To Use

Pour 250mL (8.5oz) of hot water into a bottle. Add the powder to the bottle, place the pump on the bottle, and shake vigorously for 60 seconds. The longer and more vigorously you shake, and the warmer the water, the better the crystals will dissolve.

The optional bottle is a 16oz bottle for ample room to shake and blend. Because the bottle is larger than the recommended amount of water, we suggest measuring the water in a measuring cup and pouring both the powder and the water into the bottle.

Packaging + End of Life

These soap powder refills are 100% plastic-free! The tubes are 100% aluminum, so they can be easily recycled in your curbside recycling.

Don't take our word for it...

Let's go to the real winner in my eyes. Honestly, I could have purchased this exact razor 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.
