About Us

We believe protecting the environment is our responsibility. 

Daily actions are magic, our habits shape the world. For us, being mindful of how we purchase and use products in our daily lives, is a way to make a difference in our communities. 

A time not so long ago nor far away, we began a mission to wash without single-use plastic. Products we use daily need to be both good for us AND good for the planet. A well-crafted shampoo bar is completely natural, cleansing and conditioning, and leaves zero waste.  Our 4-in-1 shower bars are shampoo, conditioner, body, and shave - all in one. Every shower bar eliminates the need for three plastic bottles and gives back to protect wild lands and watersheds. 

Made by everyday adventurers in Michigan with organic or locally sourced ingredients. This journey is more than getting clean and smelling fresh, it's a community of thoughtfully clean® people like you. 

Onwards! Lisa & Matt 


Our Mission

To use our love of adventure to spark simplicity and inspire action in everyday life.
We focus on what we can change, not on what we can't.
We hope by using our 4-in-1 shower bars you feel inspired to go beyond a thoughtfully clean shower into living a thoughtfully clean life.

    What does a thoughtfully clean life look like?

    Simplify your routines and lifestyle. Connect with the outdoors every day. Protect the land and water that sustain us.

    And it can start with something as simple as the shower you take every day.

    REDBUDSUDS is a reminder that there’s a better season ahead. It is more than something to get you clean; it’s a reminder that every day we make small but important choices that actually make a difference.



    The Difference

    Our shower bars are designed to give you everything you need for trail and home in just one bar.

    • Less is more. 4-in-1 means shampoo, conditioner, body and shave soap, all in one.
    • Thoughtfully clean. Our shower bars eliminate: preservatives, parabens, phthalates, plastic packaging, trips to the recycling bin, and explosions in your suitcase or backpack.
    • Ingredients you can trust. We use only real, recognizable ingredients that are mostly organic and local when we can find them. You'll never see palm oil on our ingredient deck. Made in Michigan, we opt for a local, sustainably-produced alternative: pure locally-sourced lard! Just like our grandma's recipe.
    • Benefits from plants. Rich conditioning from ingredients like fair trade shea butter and castor oil provide a thick, irresistible lather that's great for your skin and scalp without all the synthetic surfactants in conventional products.
    • Mess-free delivery. With a shoofah (aka shower bar loofah bag), every bar becomes soap-on-a-rope. Shoofahs help generate amazing lather fast, make the bar last longer, help the bar dry quickly for easy storage, and keep your shower bar free from dirt, hair and debris.
    • Members of 1% for the Planet. One percent of every sale goes to conservation. 
    • Plastic Neutral Certified with rePurpose Global -- every pound of plastic in our manufacturing and final products are offset by removing a pound (or more) of ocean plastic.  

    About us - waterAbout us - water

    Chances are, you’ve gotten bitten by the adventure bug just like we did. Maybe it was the first time you saw a Blue Ridge sunrise or heard the call of a loon echoing over a lake in the northwoods or riding the surf on the coast. These experiences change us forever, and if we let them, they can change the course of our lives. Small drops make an ocean.

    Let's make waves!
