  • Giggle Bar โ˜บ๏ธ๐Ÿ’ง
.
This beautiful bar is such a pleasure to make.
.
I think some of the reason is because itโ€™s designed for children, and anyone who has children will know how fun bath time can be ๐Ÿ’ฆ๐Ÿ˜…
.
This bar is technically a bastille soap (meaning itโ€™s largest ingredient is pure olive oil), which makes it mild, rich and nourishing, and perfect for the delicate skin of children or anyone with sensitive skin ๐ŸŒผ
.
Itโ€™s the same natural oil and butter blend as our Softy bar, but is delicately fragranced with pure citrus botanicals ๐ŸŠ๐Ÿ‹ for extra bath time giggles ๐Ÿ˜„
.
Our bars have all undergone a full safety assessment, but weโ€™ve gone one step further with our Softy and Giggle bars, to ensure theyโ€™re safe to use on delicate baby and childrenโ€™s skin ๐ŸŒผ
.
Itโ€™s a perfect top-to-toe bar for:
- children hair & body
- sensitive skin
- adults with dry / sensitive skin
- adults with dry / curly / frizzy hair
.
I also love it for shaving as the lather is so silky ๐Ÿงผ๐Ÿ’š

  • Hey new followers, this is me ๐Ÿ‘‹๐Ÿผ
.
My name is Camilla and I own CONCHUS. I do a lot more than that though. I make every product from scratch by hand, I cut, stamp, wrap and label, I develop, test and refine, I do all the branding, marketing and graphic design - I even built the CONCHUS website and store ๐Ÿ™Œ๐Ÿผ
.
Iโ€™m involved in another business that I jointly own, but CONCHUS is all mine ๐Ÿฅฐ Itโ€™s all about me, my beliefs and my values โค๏ธ
.
Iโ€™m 35 and live in Buckinghamshire, and this is my gorgeous family ๐Ÿฅฐ (on holiday last year ๐Ÿ˜Ž).
.
I started CONCHUS to reach out to people, and encourage and support change ๐ŸŒ
.
I live in a large, modern, forward thinking town, and wanted to create bathroom products that were also modern and interesting, that you could use easily with no compromise, that were affordable, that reduced waste, that ditched plastic, that were 100% natural, that were vegan, palm oil free and cruelty free, and items that would give above and beyond their cost ๐Ÿ’š
.
Just a few things ๐Ÿ˜… and Iโ€™m incredibly happy with where I am with CONCHUS, but being an ambitious, driven person, thereโ€™s always more to create and achieve ๐Ÿ˜
.
I think itโ€™s important you know who you buy from, and also to understand that this isnโ€™t a large corporation with products that are made on mass in a factory ๐Ÿญ
.
>> Iโ€™d LOVE to know more about all of the amazing people who follow CONCHUS and use our goodies - tell me a little bit about you below โ˜บ๏ธ<<
.
Thank you for supporting us - it means the World ๐Ÿ’š๐ŸŒ

  • Weโ€™ve had LOTS of new followers recently, so we thought youโ€™d love to know something that is extra special about our natural handmade barsโ€ฆ
.
Every CONCHUS bar is trimmed slightly by hand, and this creates lots of trimmings โ˜บ๏ธ
.
We couldnโ€™t waste these, so we developed our beautiful HUG bars, and donate them to charities and organisations who support people in need โค๏ธ
.
This means that every time you buy a bar from us, little pieces of your bar (HUGS), are added and shared directly to people who need a HUG in life ๐Ÿค—
.
We donate the ingredients, packaging and time to make them, and this batch of beautiful HUG bars are going to an amazing organisation that one of you suggested to me โค๏ธ
.
@cityhearts.global create projects that bring real change to some of the most vulnerable and exploited people in society, and are dedicated to each personโ€™s recovery and to fully restoring their broken lives and futures ๐Ÿ’”
.
MODERN SLAVERY IS CLOSER THAN YOU THINK.
.
It is estimated there are well over 13,000 victims of Modern Slavery in the UK. Many believe that this figure is just the tip of the iceberg.
.
51% are victims of sexual exploitation, 39% are victims of labour exploitation, 10% are victims of domestic servitude.
.
The exploitation suffered by every victim often leads to a life of dependency with life controlling issues.
.
In Britain, over 500,000 people suffer from Anorexia and Bulimia, over 250,000 people are affected by self-harm and there are around 6,000 suicides every year.
.
Our HUG bars are PACKED with a HUG from every single one of you, every customer who has invested in us at CONCHUS, so that we can support and invest that in others ๐ŸŒˆ
.
It is an absolute pleasure to share this batch with the amazing people at @cityheartsaberdeen and support the incredible work that they do.
.
Thank you to all of our customers โค๏ธ You make this possible xxx

  • ...believe it ๐Ÿ’š
.
If youโ€™ve been watching @bbcone War on Plastic, or have just had your eyes and ears open over the last year, youโ€™ll be aware that plastic, and our consumption and waste in general is out of control.
.
There are no rules for the changes you decide to make.
.
No set system or process to follow.
.
There are no boundaries either, and genuinely every day youโ€™re only a choice away from making a difference, and doing something so incredibly positive for yourself, someone else, and this World ๐ŸŒ
.
Whether itโ€™s choosing to buy / use something that is:
- plastic free
- ditches endless chemicals
- contains no palm oil
- is cruelty free
- zero waste / reusable
- supports a hardworking small business
- ensures someone has been paid fairly, treated well and is able to support their family
- impacts as little as possible on our World ๐ŸŒ
.
Itโ€™s all just a choice away ๐Ÿ’š
.
Everything you do makes a difference. The โ€˜we donโ€™t need a handful of people doing zero waste perfectly, we need millions doing it imperfectlyโ€™ quote speaks volumes ๐Ÿ’š
.
Feel empowered that in life youโ€™re always just a choice away ๐Ÿ’š

  • Fatherโ€™s Day ๐Ÿ’™
.
My parents separated when I was 11yrs old. It was awful, drawn out, and handled badly.
.
Iโ€™ve never really recovered from this, and it changed my life forever.
.
This is why my husband, my childrenโ€™s Father, is the most loved, cherished, and appreciated person in our lives ๐Ÿ’™
.
This isnโ€™t just for one day of the year though, but Fatherโ€™s Day is a day when we are extra grateful for him, for everything he does for us, and everything he brings to our lives ๐Ÿ’™
.
Thank you Dads - we love you ๐Ÿ˜˜
