The detox salt charcoal kawakawa powerhouse

Concrete Jungle


A truly unique bar that combines gentle exfoliation of superfine pumice and pink Himalayan salt with purifying charcoal, skin softening almond and hemp oils, richly nourishing butters of kokum and cocoa, calming cucumber and restorative Kawakawa. Smells like walking through a mossy forest after the rain.

Concrete Jungle is the secret star of our soap lineup. The mysterious and somewhat plain exterior hides numerous ingredients that detox, balance, soften, soothe, heal and rejuvenate skin, with a smell that will leave you in a state of cool calm zen, ready for anything the day might throw at you.

Key ingredients and their benefits:

  • Himalayan pink salt to detox, exfoliate & balance skin, particularly great for acne-prone skin as it's naturally antibacterial and packed full of minerals
  • Superfine pumice to gently exfoliate the skin, removing the dead layer and revealing fresh new cells
  • Charcoal to purify
  • Almond & hemp oils to soften the skin
  • Kokum & cocoa butters with their near-magical antioxidant & regenerative properties
  • Cucumber to calm and rejuvenate
  • Kawakawa to soothe and heal
  • Essential oils of Vetiver, Rosewood, Rose and Geranium to provide a sense of calm and balance

Concrete Jungle is:

  • Plant based / vegan friendly
  • Exfoliating
  • Packed with skin-loving oils & butters
  • Enriched with antibacterial and anti-inflammatory additives

NOTE: since salt naturally attracts water, your bar might "sweat" which is just water from the air being attracted by the salt in the bar. Keep in a cool and dry place until ready for use.

As with all BAR OF HOPE soaps, follow our soap care advice to get the best out of your bar.

Naked or wrapped?

It's no secret that BAR OF HOPE is all about sustainable practices and reducing waste. This is why we offer 'naked' bars which come with a product information leaflet and not much else. But if you'd like something a bit more fancy as a gift for someone (or yourself!), we offer a sustainable wrapped option using recycled paper and cotton twine.

BAR OF HOPE products are crafted, cut and prepared for you by hands, not machines, so there will be some variation and uniqueness to each bar.
