WHAT ARE THE INGREDIENTS IN MOXĒ PREMIUM HAND SOAP?

At MOXĒ, we believe personal care should not be ambiguous or complicated. We set out to make a premium hand soap made with simple, naturally derived ingredients that you can understand. 

Staying true to our values, we believe in total transparency and we promise to always provide you with all the information you need to make decisions for what goes on your body. 

We’ve constantly challenged ourselves to create clean, natural formulations with eco-conscious ingredients whenever possible, and have never tested on any of our animal friends.

When it comes to so-called premium hand soaps available on the market we often have to choose between ingredient quality and affordability. Sighs. 

We believe you shouldn't have to choose between ingredient quality and affordability so we developed our own right in our in-house lab. 

After months of testing and formulating, and more testing...MOXĒ launched four premium hand soap inspired by natural oils and plant extracts.

It has a pale yellow color and made primarily from coconut oils without over drying skin.
