The low-down on diatomite
We are always thinking of ways to make planet-friendly alternatives more simple, even down to the way we store our bars in-between use.
Our unique bar holders which accompany our shampoo bar and holder kits are the ideal solution for storing your bar and helping them last longer.
They are created from a naturally occurring soft, sedimentary rock called diatomaceous earth, otherwise known as diatomite.
Amazingly, diatomite has a super-high porosity and goes from wet to dry in around 60 seconds, making it the ideal material for absorbing excess moisture from our shampoo bars. In fact, raw diatomite can absorb 3 times its weight in water.
Due to diatomite's natural properties, residue from the shampoo bar may build up after several uses, but this is simple to remove with a gentle sponge to restore it's original appearance.
