Soapbox is a buy one give one personal care company that empowers consumers to change the world through everyday, quality purchases. For every product sold, Soapbox donates a bar of soap to someone in need, (either here in the U.S.A. or abroad) and these donations are often paired with hygiene education. To date, over 3 million donations have been made. Soapbox practices sustainable giving by working with local soap makers in the communities it serves when possible. With the purpose to do as much good as possible, Soapbox partners with nonprofits that share this same vision. Partnerships not only provide soap to the communities in need but also support hygiene education, hygiene research and job opportunities. Their naturally derived luxe personal care line includes hair color safe shampoo and conditioner, and nourishing body wash, liquid hand soap, bar soap, lotions and bath bombs. All products are vegan, paraben free, cruelty-free, EDTA free, silicone free and artificial colorant free. The benefit ingredients included in Soapbox's products offers hair and personal care that makes you look great, feel great and smell great. Soapbox products are made in the USA and sold in Target, Walgreens, Rite Aid, Amazon and many other chain stores across the United States.
