This product was recommended by Kevin Nguyen from KevinNguyenExperiences

Ethique is a leader in environmentally friendly and sustainable personal care products.

Ethiques’ soap has less than 1% of water, making it super concentrated and only needing to use a little bit of soap for the same effectiveness.
