Explore Our Gentle Cleansing Face Bar, All-Natural Soap

All-natural, cleansing face bars earn the respect they deserve, from estheticians and dermatologists, to everyday beauty aficionados. Simple, yet effective ingredients pave the way to cleansing without compromise.

Cleaner routines are now the norm, and our soap naturally steers clear of harsh chemicals. Unlike mass-produced alternatives containing sulfates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances, our product harnesses the goodness of botanical extracts, essential oils, and organic, nourishing elements.

Our micro-exfoliating and detoxifying facial bar offers effective blemish control for oily or acne-prone skin. It’s also perfect to use while shaving and even as a full-body soap.

Let’s explore when we stand behind our all-natural cleansing face bar, from its benefits and ingredients, to how it can become a go-to part of your skincare routine.

Does 100% natural soap exist?

The term "all-natural" has taken on many meanings over the years. Nearly every brand makes this claim in some way. Other terms, like “100% organic” indicate strict certification and verification, but "all-natural" lacks official regulation.

At our company, we take this description to heart. We exclusively use whole ingredients, and we always avoid synthetics, preservatives, and unnecessary water. This commitment allows natural elements to shine, promoting a healthier you.

In our Tea Tree Facial Bar, we include the organic ingredients of Extra Virgin Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, RSPO Certified Sustainable Palm Oil, Raw Fair Trade Shea Butter, and Cocoa Butter. We add Avocado Oil, Bentonite Clay, Pink Kaolin Clay, and Activated Bamboo Charcoal for their nourishing and detoxifying properties. Finally, a blend of Tea Tree, Lemongrass, Lemon, and Orange Essential Oils completes our formula.

What more could you want in a soft, luxurious, 100% natural soap?

Are natural cleansing face bars better for you?

Of course! Natural cleansing face bars and soaps means you avoid adding irritating or toxic substances to your skin. Most foaming cleansers use some form of a detergent which is more likely to strip your skin's natural oils (also known as your natural moisture barrier or acid mantle).

Try this out. Read your next soap package in detail. Are you familiar with every ingredient? Any of them impossible to pronounce? Are you comfortable with each on your skin, potentially absorbing into your body?

Over the years, soap and skincare companies added these ingredients to their products because they are less expensive than the natural ones they mimic. Not more or less effective, just cheaper to manufacture.

Rather than artificial or abrasive exfoliants, we use a fine mixture of clays and activated bamboo charcoal for a smooth, non-stripping, soft and luxurious feeling. Skipping synthetics, our fragrance is citrusy, fruity and camphorous with a refreshing lemongrass finish. (Some even say it reminds them of fruit loops!)

Average face bars and soaps have ingredients that risk irritating certain skin types. We designed our Tea Tree Facial Bar for all skin types, especially oily or acne-prone skin.

How Natural Cleansing Face Bars Affect Your Skin

Let’s take a look under the microscope for a deep dive on how cleansing bars should affect your skin.

Understanding the Skin Microbiome

The skin microbiome is home to millions of microorganisms on the skin's surface, including bacteria, fungi, viruses, and mites. This microbial community critically upholds skin health by establishing both physical and chemical barriers. This fortifies the skin against the overgrowth of harmful microorganisms.

The Importance of Microbiome Balance

A balanced and diverse skin microbiome is essential for optimal skin health. Disrupting this equilibrium, perhaps due to excessive antibiotic usage, stress, inappropriate skincare practices, and inadequate hygiene, can lead to various skin ailments, like acne or atopic dermatitis.

Research suggests that each person’s microbiome is entirely unique, influenced by age, gender, dietary habits, and lifestyle choices. No two are alike, so it’s important to get to know yours!

How To Promote Microbiome Health

For a flourishing skin microbiome entails, we should adopt certain best practices. These include appropriate antibiotic use, a nutritious diet, and mitigating stress. Sometimes these are out of our control, to an extent. However, gentle cleansing and moisturizing are also important and within reach each day.

Routine cleansing helps remove dirt and impurities while preserving natural oils and microbiome balance. Regular moisturizing fortifies the skin's natural barrier, shielding it against harmful substances and dehydration. Daily use of a natural moisturizer hydrates the skin and promotes a healthy skin microbiome.

Bambu Earth’s Origin In Soap

Our original passion for natural products was sparked by homemade soaps. 

We learned that many ingredients in commercial soaps harm both the environment and the individuals who harvest them. Inspired, our first product was soap from scratch, meticulously sourcing each component.

We immersed ourselves in the study of skin health, herbalism and its relevance to skincare, and the intricate interplay of ingredients. That was more than 10 years ago.

Exploring a fuller skincare line, we focused on simple formulas with ingredients trusted for hundreds of years. None of them were complex or patented. They came straight from the earth—reliable, straightforward, and effective.

Bambu Earth graduated from the kitchen and garage, to a studio, and finally to our current production facility.

Skincare doesn't have to be complicated. Nature is nourishing.
