Hand in Hand Soap offers vegan, plant-based skincare products, including bar soaps, body washes, scrubs, and lotions, in a variety of fragrances.
For every item purchased, the company will donate one bar of soap plus one month of clean water to a child in need. Since its founding, the company has donated more than 1 million bars of soap, and built or repaired four wells that, the company notes, provide thousands of people with clean water. The company is also transparent about the ingredients it uses – and doesn’t use – to help customers make an informed decision about the products they select. All Hand in Hand Soaps are palm oil- and cruelty-free, and are made in the United States.
Hand in Hand founders Bill Glaab and Courtney Apple were shocked to learn that 5 million children die each year from water-related illnesses – nearly half of which could be prevented from hand-washing alone. Armed with that inspiration, they set about creating a household product that could help save lives. They now work with child advocacy group My Neighbor’s Children, and 100% of the company’s donations go to the children of Haiti.
