Campsuds Biodegradable Soap

campsudsCampsuds Biodegradable Soap—The original effective, biodegradable travel/camping soap

I was using Campsuds biodegradable soap long before the days when being green was cool and throwing the words “environmentally friendly” in front of any product was a standard marketing ploy in the market. In fact, my first memories of Campsuds go back to the days when my parents would buy a few bottles of the stuff and take it along with us on family backpacking trips in the Colorado Rockies. My dad, a mountain lover and conservationist at heart, used the stuff because it meant we could wash our camping dishes in the river without having to worry about messing with the eco-system in our favorite camping spots.

I have been using Campsuds ever since those early family backpacking trips. Not only does the stuff come in a lightweight and travel friendly bottle, but it’s a multi-purpose soap that can be used on anything from dishes to your hair. It was the first biodegradable, multi-purpose soap created specifically to meet the needs of campers, travelers and adventurers and today is till my go-to choice when I’m buying environmentally safe travel soap.

Campsuds is made from natural vegetable-derived ingredients, so not only do you know it won’t harm you, you can rest assured washing you t-shirt or water bottle won’t destroy drinking water or kill any fish.

Campsuds also works equally well in hot and cold water (I’ve even used it in salt water successfully) and gets the job done. Plus, because it comes in a small 2 oz. container, you can even leave it in your carry-on bag when flying. Just a few drops provides lots of suds.
