Here, we select some of the best bar soaps to add to your bathroom to keep hands soft, clean and protected.

UpCircle Ginger Chai Soap Bar

UpCircle Ginger and Chai soap barWe really love the story behind eco-friendly brand, UpCircle. The team use leftover coffee grounds, chai tea mixes and even discarded fruit stones in their products to reduce waste and promote a sustainable business.
