In the beginning on 2019 Neil (founder of Shower Blocks) started to feel frustrated about the amount of shower gel bottles he was getting through himself and decided he wanted to find an option that was plastic free, but not soap!
So, over the course of 9 months (lockdown really accelerated things), he 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), he got there in the end.
One thing that he feel was important, especially in the current climate, is a company that tries to give back to the local community and make it a part of the business rather than a short term marketing opportunity (these are out favourite type of companies!)
From launch they have managed to forge a partnership with Toiletries Amnesty, who aim to alleviate hygiene poverty by working with a huge range of charities around the country. They donate to them with every Block we sell!
