Goodbye plastic, hello HiBAR.

Meet HiBAR’s plastic-free, soap-free solid face wash bars. Each concentrated formula is a blend of gentle ingredients—including 12 amino acids that deliver beautifully soft, clear skin—without adding to the world’s plastic pollution.

The unique shape of our solid face wash bar is designed to fit comfortably in your hand for easy use. But don’t be fooled by the compact size—each face wash bar lasts as long as one full bottle of liquid face wash.

Best of all, HiBAR’s formulas are tailored for specific skin types. Renew Face Wash Bar is a gentle exfoliating skin care facial cleanser that leaves your skin clean and dewy. Each bar is packed with amino acids and olive seed powder to ever so gently remove dead skin cells. We recommend using Renew a few times a week, or just as you would any exfoliating face wash—and it’s safe for sensitive skin.

Good stuff!

Second time buying Renew face wash. It works well for me -- no drying or breakouts, rinses clean.

Great for sensitive skin

I really like this exfoliating to use in between my other daily face cleanser. The olive pit particles of whatever they are are the perfect balance of exfoliant but gentle for every so often. Great job formualators!

Great soap

Does a nice job scrubbing the fringe off the face. It is not a lather kind of soap. Smooth and creamy instead. Definitely removes all makeup off . I have had no skin reactions.

Laura, we're delighted to hear that our face wash effectively removed your makeup without causing any skin reactions! The best part is our face wash contains no soap at all, because soap is a nope for your face. Our face wash bars work just like high-end face washes, minus the plastic!

once and done

I don't use much to wash my face, but since I was trying other HiBar products, I purchased it. I took it in its original paper packaging to the workout club with me. What a mistake that was. It was just a mess and I ended up buying a separate "bar" container, which I would have had to do anyway, with a different bar soap. So now I've purchased 2 products that I will probably never use again. I don't really have anything to say about it, as it didn't make a good or bad impression on me, but I won't buy it again.

  • Q: How were these bars formulated? 

    In developing these natural skin care products, we took a high end gentle amino acid-based face wash formula meant for a bottle, meant to be a liquid, and worked with it for over a year to make it a solid bar.

  • Q: Do your face wash bars contain fragrance? 

    No, all 3 facial bars are fragrance-free. Based on our studies we discovered that most users did not want a fragrance in their face washes.

  • Q: What is the pH level of your face wash?

    The pH is between 4.5 and 5.5, matching your skin's pH level.

  • Q: Can I use Renew as a daily face wash?

    Renew is a gentle exfoliating skin care face wash. It is recommended to be used a few times a week, just as you would any exfoliating face wash.

  • Q: Is ALL HiBAR packaging recyclable?

    Yes. In fact it's compostable as well. And we use plant-based inks. Our shipping materials are also either compostable, recyclable or biodegradable, including any packing tape or product protection. If it arrived in plastic, it did not come from us!

  • Q: Is HiBAR compostable?

    Our plastic free deodorant container is made from cardboard and is curbside compostable. They do compost and can be done at home, just like regular compost. But, if you are using the compost dirt to grow food, it’s probably best to use compost material like food scraps and other food grade, food by product material. You can compost our packaging to turn it back to the earth and use it as a filler somewhere.
