Eco-friendly shower gel

Since this winter, we have a new eco-friendly shower gel at Chalet Solneige.

ETHOSA is a start-up of 2 ambitious entrepreneurs who have developed an eco-friendly shower gel. To avoid disposable flasks, and transporting lots of water (90% of ordinary shower gel), Gaëlle and Oli supply their shower gel in the form of a powder. We mix that with Vaujany water, add Ethosa essential oil, and fill the aluminium flasks for you.

A small step to help make the world more environmental-friendly.
