Shower Gel meets Zero Waste

Shower Gel meets Zero Waste
Shower Gel meets Zero Waste

Our bathrooms are stocked with beauty products packed in single-use plastic containers, unnecessary, difficult to recycle, and destined to end up in the oceans where they harm precious ecosystems.
In line with environmental concerns, BASF has developed Easy {DIY} Shower Powder that helps to reduce plastic bottle pollution, paving the way for a zero-waste lifestyle. This powder shower gel is reconstituted at home with tap water. Based on our anionic surfactants, Texapon® SFA UP Powder1 and Sulfopon® 1214 G, this shower gel creates a soft, rich and creamy foam experience and supports a deep cleansing. Thanks to our COSMOS approved biopolymers Verdessence™ Xanthan, this minimalist formulation offers an alternative to synthetic polymers and leaves skin feeling comfortable.

Enjoy this refillable and scented shower gel that takes care of the planet and the skin!
