Unsustainable palm oil use is still an enormous problem in personal care, so it's important to elevate products such as Hand in Hand Soap's line of vegan and responsibly sourced hand soaps. Adding to its sustainability factor, the Rosemary Lemon Foaming Hand Soap is housed in infinitely recyclable aluminum packaging, and the company is developing a first-of-its-kind recyclable bottle pump. It doesn't hurt that it smells lovely, either. For each bottle sold, Hand in Hand Soap donates a bar of soap and water to children across the globe.
