How do I create my hand wash?

This is how it works. We send you one bottle. Use it always and for as long as you can. It’s made from glass, a material that can be infinitely recycled. It is designed to last.

Step 1. Add the powder. Carefully pinch at the opening to release the maximum amount of powder from the sachet into the bottle.
Step 2. Turn on the tap. Wait till it gets hot. Carefully add the hot tap water till the dotted line on the bottle. It’s okay to fill a little more or a little less.
Step 3. Close the bottle. Give it a good shake. Don’t worry if some of the powder doesn’t dissolve while shaking. The rest will dissolve over time. Your sustainable hand wash is ready to use!
Step 4. Pump foam. Wash your hands of course.

How long will one refill last?

Once you mix the powder with water, you get 250ml of foaming hand wash. How long this quantity lasts depends on how often you wash your hands, how much soap you use, and home many people live in your house. In average, for a household of two people, we see that one refill will last you one month. This is why we provide you 3 refills, so you are covered for a full month. If you need help on identifying which products you should purchase, don’t hesitate to contact us.

How many times can I reuse the bottle?

Our FORGO bottles are made to last and can be reused forever! You should not have to throw it away! We worked with glass artisans in Portugal to ensure a great quality and a sustainable production. We also tried to create a distinctive and beautiful glass bottle so you would like to keep it!

What are FORGO products made of?

FORGO products have been developed using natural or naturally derived ingredients. They contain only 6 ingredients over 1%:

  • Plant Based Surfactant: mild cleanser that provides a rich quality foaming lather! It is derived from fruits and plants oils.
  • Humectant: it draws water from the environment into the skin, thus helping to keep it hydrated. It is also used as a skin-conditioning agent to soften your skin.
  • Preservative: It kills microorganisms and prevents their growth and reproduction, thus protecting our products from spoilage.
  • Microflora stabilizer: a molecule with water-binding abilities. It stabilizes the microflora of the skin by encouraging the growth of beneficial bacteria.
  • Fragrance & Natural food colorant (<1%): It makes our products smell and look nice!

FORGO products are also non-GMO, gluten-free, vegan and cruelty free and we only used ingredients contained on the EPA Safer Chemical Ingredients List and none of the ingredients on the EWG Restricted List. 5 out of 6 of our ingredients are certified under the COSMOS Organic Certification criteria.

Even though we hope you will keep it forever, our bottles are made of glass which can be recycled forever.

What skin types are FORGO products suitable for?

We have tested our product on different types of skin without any allergic reaction noticed. But individual skin sensitivities make it difficult to ensure that no-one will have an allergic reaction to it. If you have a sensitive skin, we can only recommend to do a patch test before using abundantly.

FORGO hand wash is made with natural ingredients, and all ingredients are considered safe by EWG's Skin Deep®. It does not contain synthetic fragrances or essential oils, but contains natural fragrances. It does not contain sulfate, a common allergen.

Is FORGO hand wash more sustainable than bar soap?

Bar soap is a great and sustainable alternative but for those who would still want the convenience of liquid cleaning solutions, FORGO provides a new solution, better and more sustainable than liquid soap.

Our ambition is to reinvent personal care. The powder to liquid principle is just starting with hand wash. We're going to apply this same technology to products that typically come in liquid form and not always convenient in bar form. We noticed that despite bar soap being really sustainable, less and less people are using it.

Can FORGO product freeze or expire?

If the product is subjected to excessive heat or cold for short periods of time, the product’s efficacy will not be impacted, though it may result in a thicker or thinner texture.

While the products don’t have a formal expiration date, it is generally recommended that they be used within 3 years of manufacture or 6 months after opening for best product quality...but we think you’ll love them so much that this won’t even be an issue.
