What is a WAM bar and how does it work?
WAM stands for Water Activated Moisturiser. Our WAM bars are a new technology where solid ovals are turned into moisturisers when water is added to them. They are housed in compostable packaging and deliver a traditional liquid product minus the plastic jars, plastic pumps and plastic lids. One tiny oval goes a long way and is equivalent to approximately 200ml of liquid creme. Our WAM bars easily glide on and are readily absorbed leaving your skin feeling smooth, soft and hydrated. We've used an array of nutrient rich plant oils, extracts and botanicals to deliver a salon quality product at a fraction of the price.
Our WAM bars help eliminate plastic waste, reduce water use, reduce bathroom clutter, cut down on unnecessary freight and are super economical. The fab thing is that you do not need a jar or bottle for this product to work effectively! Simply run the bar under water and rub it in your hands to create a creme. Pat the bar dry and return to it's box when finished. There is no need for a special storage container - the box should last the lifetime of the bar! As time goes you will develop a technique that works for you. For example if you want a thicker layer simply rub the bar a little more using less water.
As you transition to plastic free living you may wish to turn the bar into a liquid creme. Using a few simple steps, with a minimum of fuss, you can turn the bars into a liquid creme (the instructions are also inside the bar's box).
1. Simply grate the bar into a mixing bowl
2. Add 200ml of cooled boiled water
3. Mix with a stick blender until a creme is formed
4. Decant & store the creme in a clean, sterilized, recycled jar (we all have plenty of these in our pantry!) and be sure to label it.
