Sustainable Scrubbing: How Smoosh Is Redefining Shower Essentials

4 minute read

Picture your typical shower sceneplastic bottles everywhere, loofahs or washrags getting kind of nasty. No thanks. 🤮

Now, envision a shower experience that's not just going through the motions. Smoosh isn't your average scrubber; it's the Superhero of Suds, the Lead Latherer, the Ebullient Exfoliator. Smoosh gets you ready for the day, night or whatever may come.

This is a warning to all plastic-bottle body washes and disposable loofahs: consider yourselves officially outclassed.

The Smoosh Difference:

Let's look at the magic behind the Smoosh Body scrubber, because this isn't your run-of-the-mill, weak, flimsy disposable scrubber.

Adjustable Soap Height

Smoosh puts you in control with an ingenious adjustable soap height feature. Why is this a game-changer? As your soap naturally gets used, it drops in height with respect to where the bristles are. No worries! You can maintain a consistent experience throughout the soap's life. Simply twist the handle and keep the good vibes flowing.

Plus, it's not just about consistency; it's about customization. Raise the soap higher for more soap-skin contact and a softer exfoliation. Lower it down for an invigorating bristle-focused scrub. Smoosh adapts to your needs, giving you the power to tailor your shower experience.

Nesting Soap Bars

Smoosh isn't just a scrubber; it's a soap-saving genius. Ever wondered what to do with that last sliver of soap that seems too small to use but too good to toss? Enter the nesting-brick-like design on Smoosh soaps. Pop out the sliver (it'll be a disc at the bottom of your Smoosh), load a new soap, and nest the old sliver right on top of the new bar.

A firm press while wet secures the soap in placeno more wasting those precious soap remnants. Smoosh ensures you get the most out of every bar, making your shower routine both economical and eco-friendly.

No-Slip Grip

Ever experienced the slippery soap fiasco? Not with Smoosh. The handle, designed to fit snugly between your fingers, ensures a secure grip. No more chasing slippery, soggy soap around the showerSmoosh stays in your hands, and the soap stays right where it belongs. It's a no-slip guarantee for a hassle-free and enjoyable shower experience.

Continuous Lathering Action

Smoosh goes beyond the basics of soap and water. With 1,114 silicone bristles, it aerates the lather from the soap, continuously whipping it into suds during use. What does this mean for you? No need for constant "loading" like with traditional scrubbers.

The lathering and bubbles are continuous, and the silicone scrubbing action enhances the lather, creating a bubbly experience that surpasses using a bar of soap alone. Smoosh elevates your shower into a lathering sensation, making every scrub count. Heck, you may just find yourself searching for more areas on your body to wash because it feels that good.

Sustainability at Its Core:

Smoosh is more than just an awesome-looking scrubberit's a commitment to reducing waste and transforming your shower routine in one fell swoop. With Smoosh, there's no need for plastic body wash bottles. Every year, more than 1 billion of them end up in landfill in the US alone. And nearly half a billion plastic loofahs join them.

Throw out a cheap, dirty loofah for the last time. Smoosh is your sustainable alternative, helping you avoid unnecessary waste and contributing to a cleaner planet.

Eco-friendly Materials and Long-lasting Durability

Smoosh is designed to keep scrubbing for years with minimal environmental impact. The materials used in the Smoosh Body scrubber are food-safe, anti-microbial silicone, and post-consumer recycled plastic. Say goodbye to the disposable scrubber cycleSmoosh is your sturdy companion.

Care for it easily and use it for years. Smoosh is also a plastic-negative organization, funding plastic-extraction from oceans with every scrubber sold.

Anti-microbial Silicone for Easy Care

Smoosh not only stands the test of time but also takes care of itself effortlessly. Built with anti-microbial silicone, it naturally resists bacterial growth, ensuring a clean scrub every time. And for your convenience, Smoosh is dishwasher safe, making it a breeze to keep your scrubber in top-notch condition with minimal effort.

User Testimonials: Bringing Smoosh to Life

As we were developing the Smoosh products, we had some wonderful beta testers that used prototypes and provided feedback for the past two years. Discover how Smoosh has transformed their shower routines, making every scrub a delight. These are their real stories.

Kid-Friendly? Absolutely!

"Um, so Smoosh is, um, a product where you don’t have to put soap on the washrag, you just have to get the Smoosh wet and then put it all over your body. The stick, you can buy the stick for some more money. Um, it’s soft, it’s reliable, it’s easy to use. So to make the soap get higher when it gets lower, just turn the knob on the back of the Smoosh. The bristles are pretty thin and I like it, so……I recommend you buy it." - Wes, Age 7

Nice for her KP (Keratosis Pilaris)

"This is such a fun new thing to have in my shower! The Smoosh offers such a gentle exfoliation my skin (which is really nice for my keratosis pilaris) and the soaps smell delicious!! Totally worth the tiny learning curve!" - Sara M.

Great for Active Individuals

"I used to use body-wash and my hands, for the most part. I didn't even KNOW what it could feel like to up my shower game but wow Smoosh is my absolute go-to now. It's so easy, grab and go, and it especially comes in handy after days playing beach volleyball. Nothing clears sand from my legs, knees, toes (and elsewhere) like Smoosh." - Adam S.

Literally a Better Feeling Clean

"I'm embarrassed to admit, I was one of those people that didn't wash their legs. But NOW, it just feels SO GREAT that I'm searching for more places to clean and now I'm clean as *bleep* from head to toe. Can I give this more than five stars??" - April C.

It took about 3 weeks for most of our testers to get into a groove and form the new habit with Smoosh. After that, they simply couldn't look back. They couldn't imagine their shower without their Smoosh.
