What People are Saying About Foaming Liquid Soap


If you’ve looked around the soap aisles, you’ve noticed that foaming soap is more expensive than simple liquid soap. The very thing that makes liquid soap foam – the pump dispenser – is what makes it more expensive.

Beyond the Sticker Price

Take a second, though, and you might discover this is a time to look beyond sticker price to overall value and cost. Foaming soap hasn’t been around as long as liquid soap, and certainly not as long as bar soap, but it’s the choice of a growing number of consumers and manufacturers. Early market studies haven’t reached the level of big data, but they do suggest some primary reasons for making the foaming-soap choice:

  • It’s more enjoyable to use.
  • It’s less likely to be messy, less prone to waste.
  • It’s less expensive to use, overall.
  • It’s a surprisingly good grease-cutter.

Why So Enjoyable?

Comments gathered from consumers who find foaming soap more enjoyable to use cite these reasons most often:

  • It feels less slippery.
  • It holds its shape, so there’s more control overflow and less likelihood of dripping.
  • It takes less water and time to rinse away.
  • It’s already a lather!

Using Less, Using Instead

Using less soap is good for a couple of major reasons, one personal, one potentially global:

  • Using less is ultimately cheaper for individual users
  • Using less soap means less down the drain, which is especially an issue with commercial skin detergents, still what most people use. Using less means fewer parabens, less dioxane and triclosan down the drain and into the common water supply. With organic soap, none of these are an issue.

Foaming soap still isn’t as common as liquid soap, but there are good reasons to think it could be, or at the very least, should.

  1. Do you know that now you can very comfortable use a bar of soap as well as liquid soap?

    Midgroup LLC offers you a new original product for washing hands – the SoapPlaner dry soap dispenser.
    Now dry bar soap can be used conveniently, aesthetically and hygienically.
    In addition, it does not harm our nature, because there is no numerous plastic containers, a bar of soap does not contain harmful components, for its production and delivery requires less energy and a minimum carbon footprint.

    Watch the video and our website where our dispenser is presented.


    How does it work?
    SoapPlaner is attached to the wall near the washbasin,
    can be screwed on, can be glued with double-sided tape.
    Open, put a piece of dry soap, wet your hands and spin the wheel.
    Small soap chips fall on hands. It is rubbed by hands and quickly becomes foam.
    Hands are washed off with water.

  2. While I enjoy using foaming soap for all the reasons listed, I have a hard time consuming the plastic bottles with it. Seems such a waste. High cost there, even if the soap itself is less expensive.
