We have finally found the perfect organic soaps for our guests (and ourselves)!
From this season, the soap bars you will find in the bathroom are handcrafted and bare to guarantee zero waste from a packaging point of view.
They are produced by Officina Cosmetica Antichi Ricordi.
What soap bars will you find in the room?
Depending on the room you have chosen, you will find these two options:
- Egyptian musk (they are the orange ones) and sandalwood (yellow)
- prickly pear (in pink) and fleur d'iris (in purple)
You will also find sandalwood and prickly pear soaps at reception, in larger sizes, to buy as a keepsake, a gift, or because you'll fall in love with them!
The soap bars are made with artisanal procedures, and minor imperfections, such as slightly different dimensions or small cracks, are characteristic.
We wanted them coloured (obviously!), and any colour variations are generated using food colouring.
As mentioned, they are made artisanally, without preservatives, parabens or palm oil. They are vegan, cruelty-free, allergen-free, and SLS-free soap bars.
The ingredients: Sodium Cocoate, Aqua, Glycerin, Coconut Acid, Parfum *, CI19140, Sodium Sulfate, Sodium Chloride, Tetrasodium Etidronate, Pentesodium Pentetate.
Have you ever thought about switching to solid shampoo and conditioner?
I started using them about ten years ago on a sailing boat, preferring marine soaps, and I recommend them.
We have therefore decided to offer them to the Oasi as well. At the reception, you will find jars full of soap, shampoo and conditioner to take home as a souvenir or gift for people you care about.
The solid hair products we have chosen untangle even the most unruly locks (in this case, my natural curls were the test bench), a real panacea after a summer of sun and sea or walking along paths soaked in the brackish.
They leave hair soft and shiny.
They are natural, cold saponified, made with rapidly biodegradable surfactants and plastic-free.
These are the ones we have chosen to keep in the hotel:
- shampoo for curly hair (obviously!), based on coconut and macadamia nuts, which you will recognize by its yellow colour
- shampoo for frequent washing, based on Egyptian musk, in orange
- conditioner for curly or brittle hair, based on argan and macadamia nuts, in orange
- conditioner for frequent washing, based on fleur d'iris, in purple colour
The duration of a single "bar of soap"? Up to 6 months with daily use and beyond if you don't wash your hair every day.
A solid cosmetic is still a good idea because it does not need a plastic bottle to contain it (also reducing emissions related to transport due to its low weight), it does not have water, a commodity too precious to be wasted and allows you to use very little product and dose it perfectly without risking pouring more than necessary.
The body and hair products you find in the room
In the rooms' bathrooms, we still have shampoo, conditioner and shower gel in dispensers, all coconut-based, vegan, with 100% natural and globally 99% organic aromas, delivered to the hotel in large returnable cans in recycled plastic again and again from 1999.
They are produced by Faith in Nature in the United Kingdom, which has decided to offset its carbon emissions by working with the World Land Trust, which is particularly committed to protecting carbon sinks.
Furthermore, with each of our orders, a tree is planted in partnership with Treesisters, as we do with you when you participate in our small project with Hotels for Trees.
We like this artisan company and its products, but we would like to find the closest equivalent to us to reduce the impact of our orders further.
