About Our Products
The Story Behind Boavistacircular
Every day, our environments are polluted with tons of waste, whether it’s cooking oil clogging drainage pipes or fishing nets floating in our oceans. This waste doesn’t just produce toxic emissions – it also causes a substantial threat to wildlife. That’s why we’re helping households to be part of the solution, not the pollution, with eco-friendly cleaning products and accessories made from circular materials.
Eco-Friendly Products Crafted From Circular Materials
Waste Cooking Oil
Our soaps contain filtered and cleaned cooking oil, known as hazardous waste, to prevent improper disposal around the globe.
Transforming coconut shells into products with a uniquely aesthetic edge prevents the release of harmful emissions into our environments.
Cleaning scrubs crafted from lost or abandoned fishing nets reduces pollution in our oceans and helps prevent the killing of innocent marine life.

Using cotton towels to wipe counters and household duties avoids using microfiber wipes and completely uses this natural fiber.

Eco dish soap
Our Eco dish soap is more petite, naked, and versatile.
With the same formula and power as the big brother Eco dish soap Jar inside the terracotta bowl, it cuts grease and dirt very well.
These soaps are an alternative to eliminate unnecessary plastic in your household and, consequently, into our environment.
It's also possible to turn this solid soap into liquid by grating it and adding boiling water. There are endless uses for this soap. It's truly a multi-purpose product.
Coconut Shell soap dish
Our soap container, made from coconut shells, is an excellent combo with any solid soap. Its natural design looks good in any kitchen or bathroom.
It's a circular product, and it is handmade ethically in Vietnam. Coconut is a versatile fruit; after taking the water and meat out, the coconut fibers can be turned into many different products and shells as well. But when not repurposed, it is usually burned, causing harmful emissions. By supporting these artisans, we can resolve this issue. Turning this waste into a coconut shells soap tray, a light and fully biodegradable product, keeps your soaps dry in a natural form.

Recycled Fishing Net Sponge
Discarded nets, lines, and ropes comprise about 46% of the Great Pacific Garbage Patch. This marine plastic has a name: ghost fishing gear.
These sponges are hand-sewed by women from a poor community in south Brazil, generating income and supporting local work.
The sponge is not compostable/biodegradable but lasts ten times longer than conventional sponges, up to two years. As a result, it is a versatile product used for dishwashing and general cleaning.
And by giving this waste another life, we prevent it from polluting our oceans and killing marine life.

Looking for a strong, simple, and sustainable refillable container for the soaps, we found a winning combination at Boavistacircular. Instead of producing new packaging, we use a unique, good-quality shape and material that perfectly fits the brand style.
We choose terracotta clay-based ceramic, a type of earthenware that brings nature into our kitchens; water-resistant, durable, versatile, and goes well in every kitchen.
When your soap is over, you can. easily replace with our Refill Soap bar, or use the container for tapas, yogurt, or any other use you can come up with.
How can a fruit be able to clean your clothes and much more? Soap nuts are dried berries that realize Saponin when in contact with water. Used for many years in Asian countries where the Sapindus Mukorossi tree grows, these berries are a natural alternative to all the chemicals used in laundry detergents.
It's super economical as you need only a few nuts, and you can reuse them for about 4 washes.
Our 100g jar of Soap Nut can last about 40 washes.
EcoWipes - Used hairdresser towels
Reusing towels from hairdressers that would have otherwise been discarded early is not only a sustainable practice but also beneficial in terms of resource conservation. The towels are 100% cotton, a natural fiber that can be used multiple times.
By reusing these towels, we reduce waste and minimize the enviromental impact associated with their production and disposal.
