Pleasant State – Soaperstar Hand Wash – Makrut Lime


Formulated from excellent, non-toxic ingredients. Includes Makrut lime essential oil.
Pleasant State is built around a B Corp model to ensure they meet the highest social and environmental standards, are transparent in their operations, are legally accountable and that they balance profit and purpose. The brand uses all non-toxic ingredients and ensures fair wage to all workers and diversity in their team. In addition, they support local business with their entire supplier network being Australian based.
Pleasant State has designed a zero-waste cleaning solution, whose bar wrappers are also certified home compostable and are sourced from the Australian company CompostMe. The brand is currently in discussions with Terracycle to implement a take-back scheme for the plastic triggers when they reach their end of life. The brand’s packaging is zero waste consisting of a recycled cardboard mailer box, an FSC certified complimentary card, and kraft tape to seal the box. In addition, they have significant transport emissions by not shipping water around the country (with their bars weighing 15g vs 550 g for a diluter 500ml bottle). Products are shipped using Australian Post carbon neutral service. The brand’s headquarters are powered with solar energy and any energy surplus being fed into the grid.
Pleasant State’s Shareholder Deed makes clear that 75% of profits are to be invested into charitable causes, product development, and the establishment of a charitable foundation ensuring Pleasant State remains focused on its values. The brand supports their community by donating 2% of all sales to Take 3 for the Sea. In addition they have publicly committed to preventing the production of 100,000 plastic bottles in 2021, getting 15,000 customers to make the switch, and donating >$10,000 to our charity partner Take 3 for the Sea. They also provide public quarterly updates on our progress.

What our experts say...


This is a meticulously designed zero waste product – the reusable glass bottle has a silicone sleeve to prevent breakages. The soap stick dissolves slowly but surely into warm water and the result is a lemon-scented foaming hand wash! The foam means it lasts a lot longer than a liquid soap. Pleasant State is a purpose-driven business that truly walks the talk when it comes to social responsibility. I really appreciate the huge amount of effort that goes into giving back to society and our planet.

I love how minimal and fuss free their Soaperstar Hand Wash is. The bottle itself is aesthetically pleasing and not an eyesore on my benchtop. It is also reusable and activating the hand wash is so easy and the pump dispenses the perfect amount. I also appreciated the handwritten note inside the box – such a nice touch! For the health of myself and my family I am more mindful of the cleaning products I use in my home so I love that their hand wash is toxin-free, plastic-free and that I can buy refills so I can use the bottle over and over again. I also really admire that their core goal from the start was to become B Corp Certified which they successfully achieved – this shows me a brand with heart, passion and drive to do the right thing by their customers and the planet!

I love the reusability and clean aesthetic of this bottle that makes me think I can reuse it again and again while I wait for my refills. I also love Pleasant State’s commitment to involvement in the scientific community and global governance. It’s also empowering to hear the founder’s personal story and her passion behind changing the cleaning industry.
