About Our Products

The amount of oil disposal daily in sewage or toilets in our houses, restaurants, and factories is a severe environmental issue.

After discarding in sewage pipes, it goes to rivers, canals, oceans, and soil, causing severe damage to aquatic life because it accumulates on the surface, not letting light and oxygen get through.

And the fact that Oil doesn't mix with water, causing clogged pipes and stopping the natural water flow.

To avoid this problem that affects all of us, soap production using recycled cooking Oil as an oil base is an ecological and economical alternative.

After collecting the Oil, we put it in a cleaning process, filtering and removing the rest of the impurities and odor.
The soap-making process includes adding Sodium Hydroxide, also known as lye, and its also used in making paper, textile, and detergents.

                                                Solid Dish Soap 

Our handmade solid dish soap is an alternative to eliminate the need for plastic bottles. 

All-natural, biodegradable, sulfate, and paraben-free. Why mention it?

Because Parabens is a chemical group used to extend the shelf life of products and many people are allergic to it.

And there is no need for sulfates to create extra foam; it does foam very well.

It is a Multipurpose soap, perfect for household cleaning in general. 

Also possible to make your liquid soap; grate the soap and add water. 

Transparency in the Ingredients:

  • Waste frying oil
  • Coconut oil
  • Sodium Hydroxide

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 dish, 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 revert this issue. Turning this waste into a coconut shells soap dish, a light and fully biodegradable product, keep your soaps dry in a natural form.

 

         

                                Recycled Fishing Net Sponge

These sponges are hand sewed by a group of women from a poor community in the south of Brazil, generating income and supporting local work.

The sponge is not compostable/biodegradable, but it lasts ten times longer than conventional sponges. 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.

Ceramic bowl

 

The refillable recipient where Boavista soap is made, is also part of a circular system; this ceramic bowl was for sale at a well-known thrift shop here in the Netherlands, Gideon Italiander. It was part of a deadstock from the brand Zigg Zagg kitchen.

Looking for a strong, simple, and sustainable refillable container for the soaps, we found a winning combination at Boavista. Instead of producing new packaging, we use a unique, good quality, shape, and material that fits perfectly with the brand style.

That's why when you get a refill bar or when your soap is about to end; you can see the Zigg Zagg name printed on the soap.
We choose terracotta clay-based ceramic, a type of earthenware to bring a bit of nature into our kitchens, water-resistant, durable, versatile, and goes well in every kitchen.
