Another breed of soap dispenser is born

This is another example of  “why didn’t I think of that”, so I won’t rant much on that but I will at least give credit for this simple but ingenious product and the philosophy behind it to Eindhoven grad Nathalie Stampfli who got inspired by cheese graters and peppermills. Nathalie explains that:

Today, most of the soap we use is liquid soap, which contains a lot of water. Block soap instead is more concentrated and therefore has some ecological benefits: you don’t transport unnecessary water around. In place of plastic bottles you can simply use paper for packaging. The solid blocks can easily be piled and allow a greater space efficiency in a truck.

Why not simply  use of soap bars?

I don’t like the weird slippery feeling when I use them. It gives me goose bumps. And under the shower, it always slides out of your fingers. Hand soap also often gets dirty and accumulates bacteria when more than one person is using it.

Here below you can find some pictures of the two products, one wall-mounted and the other handheld:
