Haeckels x Ozone Coffee & Seaweed Block
This limited-edition collaboration between Haeckels and Ozone Coffee Roastery is our first circular product utilising waste coffee grinds in the soap and waste coffee cups to make the packaging.
The soap uses waste coffee grinds from Ozone’s London Eatery to create a vegetable-based, vegan formula to scrub away dirt and smooth rough patches all over the body. We then add seaweed, aloe vera and tea tree actively hydrate and repair the skin, making it ideal for daily use.
The product is housed in paper made from upcycled coffee cups.
