I stopped by the Stevens Point Area Co-op this afternoon and came upon a brand of soap that calls itself “the pedal-powered natural soap”.
Just Soap is made using what it calls a “one-of-a-kind bicycle-powered soap blender”. According to the Just Soap website, founder Frederick Breeden wanted to find an efficient and eco-friendly method of mixing soap. After sharing his vision with a bike builder, the bicycle blender became reality.
The website mentions that the bicycle blender enables larger batches of handmade soap to be made. This is not only eco-friendly, but it allows Just Soap to “keep our prices lower”.
It sounds like making soap can be a pretty good workout. On the FAQ page of the Just Soap website, it says that a batch of soap requires 3 hours of pedaling, and as the soap thickens over the last 30 minutes, “the pedaling gets quite difficult”.
You can read more about Just Soap, the products they offer, and their bicycle-powered soap blender here.
