Scrubbingtons was created by two friends who wondered why they were still washing their children using bubble bath with a picture of a baby on the front when their children were not babies anymore, and why their children were not washing themselves? And that was how Scrubbingtons was born!
Scrubbingtons’ mission is to empower children and help them learn about washing and personal hygiene so they developed a range of products to help them wash themselves. Scrubbingtons products are foaming so it is much easier and more fun for kids to use.
Scrubbingtons truly believe in the motto, clean kids, clean planet and make their products with natural ingredients and without the use of chemicals. They also support Beauty Banks and Inkind, charitable organisations that provide personal hygiene products for those who need them.
Scrubbingtons have everything covered from a 3 in 1 shampoo, conditioner and body foam, hand and face foam, roll on deodorant and of course bubble bath! All of these are UK made, palm oil free or use sustainable palm oil, paraben free and suitable for septic tanks.
But that’s not all, they are passionate about reducing waste so we asked them about their new refill pouches;
“Our last launch into our line of products was a brand new refill pouch for Bug Off hand sanitiser. Whilst we are in #PlasticFreeJuly it’s timely to tell you all about the benefits of refill pouches. How they offer a WHOPPING 78-82% saving on plastic, but also save water and energy too. How our pouches are 100% recyclable. We hope to continue to persuade our customers to make the switch.
Here are a few other ways we are reducing waste and trying to be more conscious as a company:
Our bottles, which we hope you will reuse again and again now that we have THREE refill pouches to choose from (buy a bottle once and refill forever), are also made from 50% recycled plastic. We are working hard to get to the point where they can be made of 100% recycled plastic but at the moment there isn’t enough recycled plastic in the UK to buy. So we all need to recycle at home as much as we can. We design all our packaging for maximum recyclability and think really hard about the materials we use in everything, from the boxes and materials we pack in, the labels we use and the postcards we write!
Recycling is something that is very close to our hearts – every year, the Earth yields billions of tons of natural resources and at some point, in the not too distant future, it will run out.
That’s why we must think again about what we throw away – seeing not waste, but opportunity. We want to encourage more of you to choose to Reduce, Reuse, Refill and Recycle.
There are some great tips on recycling items from within your home here recyclenow.com. And don’t forget Scrubbingtons has the refilling element covered with our range of eco refill pouches for Scrub Up, Scrub All and Bug Off. “
