Het Zeeplokaal originated from the love for pure and simple ingredients. Owner Thijske had been working on using less plastic, reusing more and buying second-hand for some time, but was not really aware of what an average shampoo or shower gel contains. Until she got a red rash from a hastily grabbed budget shower gel. Upon further investigation, it turned out to be a whole laundry list of ingredients.
In January 2017 she made soap for the first time. In a cake mold. The cake tin has since been exchanged for more manageable utensils. Dozens of molds are filled daily with saponified vegetable oils, creating beautiful soap loaves. The soap loaves are then cut into the blocks of soap, as you buy them: as soap bars.
Every soap that is made for you is based on being caring and good for Mother Nature. Every soap from the Zeeplokaal is plant-based and therefore 100% vegan friendly, free of sulfates such and free of palm oil as this ingredient has a negative impact on animals and nature.
We carry het Zeeplokaal because it's genuinely and a 100% natural handmade soap, made in The Netherlands. We assure you: once you've tried a soap bar, you're hooked!
