Clean and fresh but ….

Very nice lather and leaves skin feeling clean and soft however it really stings if you get it in your eyes!

Jennifer, thanks for sharing! Glad to hear the bar made your skin clean and soft. We recommend keeping the product away from eyes and not for removing eye makeup as it may sting.

Like it / but not softness

I like that it cleans my face without drying out. I also like that it has been lasting a longtime. I have had my bar for about six months. It is so soft that I have to form it into bar shape every few days. It sits on a bamboo slatted rack so it gets air circulation. Can I dry dehydrating it slightly to firm it up?

works great but doesn’t hold up well in the shower

I like this product but it tends to lose its shape in the shower. I have mine sitting in a silicone soap holder and after a few showers it falls apart into a blob of soap. I allow it to dry out everyday but it still turns into goo regardless. It still works great I just can’t pick up a whole bar anymore I just grab a bit of the mush each time I need to wash my face.

We're sorry to hear this happened to your face wash, Alaina. We recommend storing on a soap dish that allows proper drainage from the bottom to allow for better drying between uses, which should prevent it from turning mushy. We also recommend keeping out of direct humidity (like trapped in a hot shower) and rather somewhere that allows more air flow. We would love to send you a fresh replacement, please feel free to reach out directly and so sorry again.

Like it! Cleans and moisturizes lightly.

Works for me. I don't use makeup or have problem skin, and it does hydrate nicely. Like the shape too.

Thanks, Polly!

  • 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.
