gel hand wash refill

refill not landfill

glasses are better half-full. hand wash bottles, too. better yet, totally full. and for that, we offer this refill. it’s full of enough biodegradable, naturally derived gel hand wash to refill your bottle nearly 3x. because the only thing worse than dirty hands is employing jeans-wiping as an interim solution.


what's that smell?




the natural cucumber extract with bursts of light citrus is like a spa day in a bottle. it’s crisp, cool + refreshing, just like the vegetable itself. only better, because it cleans. for best results, use while wearing a white, fluffy robe.

french lavender

is there really any other kind? this enchanting medley of lavender, bergamot, purple sage + chamomile is like a brief respite to the french countryside. incidentally, to the exact coordinates where the sun always shines + all of your cleaning fantasies come true.

green tea + aloe

bliss can be defined in a lot of ways. drinks with umbrellas come to mind. but if you were to express it through a scent, it would probably be something very close to this soothing fusion of fresh ivy, agave, green tea + aloe vera.

juicy pear

just because eating a juicy pear results in sticky hands and a wet face, doesn’t mean we avoid them. as a matter of fact, it sort of inspired us to create this mouth-watering scent of pears, apples + melons. enjoy the same luscious sweetness, but without all the mess.

pink grapefruit

there are certain scents that seem to put an extra spring in your step. like this refreshing fusion of pink grapefruit, blood orange + cassis. in fact, we wouldn’t be surprised if this vibrant medley induces spontaneous skipping. it’s been known to happen.

sea minerals

it seems like every time fresh + clean get together, something wonderful happens. uniting in this watery blend of bergamot, lemon + rosemary, with crisp marine notes is no exception. it’s like a mini-vacation to the seaside, minus the sand in your crevices.

sweet water

if we had a signature scent, it would probably be this. sweet water is like a cool splash of grapefruit + lemon leaves wrapped in watery petals of star jasmine + lily of the valley. it’s rumored that water from the fountain of youth smells similarly.


since it’s not practical to call it quits on reality and retreat to Windermere Island, consider this your temporary solution. your 15-second escape. your oasis in a desert of routine. surrender to the scent of cool, cascading water lily + sandalwood.
