Maintaining your facial cleansing bar:
To ensure you get the most out of your natural facial cleansing bar it’s best to let it dry out between uses. We recommend placing your facial cleansing bar on a coconut fibre pad, this will allow it to dry out evenly between uses. Coconut fibre pads are biodegradable and can safely be added to your compost.
For best drying results stand your cleansing bar on its smallest side, this will maximise the drying area. Don’t want to take your full bar with you when travelling? Cut the desired amount off your facial cleansing bar and add to your plastic free travel kit.
When your facial cleansing bar starts to get down to the final stages, you can add the small amount of bar left to another soap bar, it can also be used to wash the rest of the body or hands.
Cassowaries in Far North Queensland*:
The Southern Cassowary, which is found in Far North Queensland is listed as endangered under both Queensland and Commonwealth legislation. There are an estimated 4,000 cassowaries left in Australia.
Aside from being an icon of tourism in Far North Queensland, cassowaries also play an integral part in the maintenance of the rainforest ecosystem. Cassowaries eat up to 150 different fruits; and an estimated 70 to 100 plant species depend almost entirely on the cassowary for seed dispersal. A cassowary makes it’s own “mini-compost pile” which helps enrich the rainforest via the distribution of spreading seeds via it’s waste.
