The Forever Bottle
Buy your shower gel one, refill it forever ❤️
Did you know that the percentage of active ingredients in shower gels used by humans on the Earth is often less than 20%? The rest is water, in a plastic bottle that ends up in the trash. To avoid this, some particularly advanced civilizations in neighbouring galaxies have taken a different approach: why not concentrate this important 20% into solid tablets to be diluted at home in the water, in a refillable glass bottle? Merci Handy Infusing Shower Gel is already in use in the rest of the universe, and now, with its soft foam, cosmic fragrances and magic infusing tablets, it is finally arriving on Earth!
Frequent questions ask
How many showers does a refill last?
About 22 showers! 🚿
Does it contain any sulfates?
No, it doesn't: our shower gel is guaranteed sulfate-free!
Sulfates or "sulfated surfactants" are detergents, and they have been increasingly criticized because of their irritating effects. Seeing as how you use your shower gel daily, just imagine the impact on your skin! Sulfates also increase blackheads, which will lead to an overproduction of sebum on your skin. The bottom line is that here, at Merci Handy, we say yes to foam but not at the cost of our skin! 🧼
Is the shower gel hypoallergenic?
We cannot guarantee that our shower gel won’t cause any allergic reaction at all, as it contains perfume (and therefore allergens). However, our tablets have been carefully formulated to minimize risks of allergies.
What is the main active ingredient in this shower gel?
Inulin, which is a mix of sugars extracted from chicory roots, is known to gently cleanse, moisturize and protect the skin. It is also a prebiotic that helps restore your skin's balance by stimulating skin flora (bacteria that are beneficial to the skin).
How should I clean the bottle to reuse it?
You can either use the eco, glass or delicate wash setting on your dishwasher (to protect your bottle), or wash your bottle by hand with soap and warm water. Let it dry upside down.
Is this product suitable for children?
Yes, it is suitable for children over the age of 6. However, our magic tablets must still be used under adult supervision.
Is the shower gel suitable for pregnant women?
Our shower gel has no contraindications for pregnant women.
How to store the shower gel?
Once opened, our tablets can be stored in a cool, dry place for up to 6 months. Our infusing shower gel contains two preservatives (Potassium sorbate and Sodium Benzoate) to ensure good conservation during these 6 months.
Can the glass bottle be used over and over again?
The glass bottle can be used over and over again, and the pump about 4,000 times - just make sure you clean them up properly once the bottle is empty.
If your pump ever wears out, don't worry, we sell spare ones too!"
Is glass greener than plastic?
It all depends on the point of view :) The recycling rate of glass is much higher than that of plastic (75% vs 21%). Moreover, glass can be recycled endlessly, which improves its carbon footprint year after year. It is also returnable, which makes its carbon impact even lower. In addition to its 100% mineral origin, glass is completely inert, which makes it a safe choice for the consumers’ health.
Plastic is definitely less energy-consuming when it comes to manufacturing and transport (as it is less heavy), but it is made from a nonrenewable resource: oil.
For our shower gel, we’ve decided to go for a glass bottle because it can be used over and over again, which is cool - both for you, and for the planet!"
