Hand in Hand Hand Soap

In 2011, Bill Glaab and his wife, Courtney Apple, read an article that said 5 million children die each year from water-related illnesses and that 45% of these deaths could be prevented with simple hand washing alone. A lightbulb went off—what if they could create a business that focused on a better soap, that was more sustainable, and could give back by saving lives? From there, Hand In Hand Soap was born.

“In 2012, we took our first soap donation trip to Haiti. That trip suddenly made the work we were doing real. From small beginnings, we have worked to launch our giveback program to 23 countries around the world. We lend a hand to help children across the world – for every product purchased, Hand In Hand donates one bar of soap and clean water to a child in need.”  In 2013, they added their first well in Haiti.

Hand in Hand products are vegan, cruelty-free, and feel great on your skin. They’re made of ingredients like coconut oil, olive oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, and essential oils. No phthalates, parabens, BHT, SLS, petrochemicals, or palm oil.

The brand has gone on to add hand soap, hand sanitizer, body wash, body lotion, sugar scrubs, and gift sets Packaged in 100% recyclable aluminum, this liquid hand soap (10 oz. $4.99) nourishes and moisturizes the skin. There are also lots of fun gift sets available. And, for every liquid hand soap purchased, Hand in Hand donates one bar of soap and water to a child in need across the globe.

Hand in Hand Gift Set

There are 9 delectable scents available. The brand generously sent me 3 to try. Citrus Grove, Island Mimosa, and Poppy.
