I’m Neil, the founder of Shower Blocks, and thanks for taking a visit.
Did you know that I actually hand make every single one of these myself right now, and i wanted to let you know just how I got here.
In the beginning on 2019 I started to feel frustrated about the amount of shower gel bottles I was getting through myself and decided I wanted to find an option that was plastic free.
Did you know that close to 200 million shower gel bottles are purchased in the UK annually, with around 82 million of those not getting recycled. It’s a staggering amount and I wanted to make a difference even if it was just a few bottles.
I picked up a bunch of different products online or in stores and I struggled to find one that I could really get on board with. They were either far too drying on my skin, or far too expensive to consider for regular usage.
Frustrated that even the new body bars on the market didn’t really solve it (even though they claimed to), I decided to just get out there and make a plastic free solid shower gel myself. One that didn’t compromise.
So, over the course of 9 months (lockdown really accelerated things), I learned to make cosmetics from scratch and set about creating Shower Blocks.
As you can imagine there was a lot of learning and a LOT of trial and error involved, but not one to give up (insert montage), I got there in the end.
If you have any feedback or questions about the business what so ever, then please do feel free to get in touch via the contact form.
I hope you enjoy your journey with Shower Blocks.
