Australians discard millions of tons of organic waste every year, wasting resources and generating methane from landfill; a potent greenhouse gas. Insects eat organic matter and new technology farming the Black Soldier Fly (Hermetia illucens) is now able to convert organic waste into protein and oil at an industrial scale.
Future Green Solutions is an innovative new company in Perth farming the Black Soldier Fly using such technology via the process outlined below:
fifoam® is manufactured right here in Western Australia by Sea Dragon Botanicals using this oil to produce beautifully moistuirising soap. Established in 1995 by owner and managing director Jasper Trendall, Sea Dragon Botanicals is a private label manufacturer of soap and skincare using specialised skills and equipment to make unique, natural products.

Note from the Aussie Soap Supplies owner:
This liquid soap represents the traditional soaping method where animal fats (acid) + Potassium Hydroxide (alkali) = liquid soap (Potassium salt). While Aussie Soap Supplies has long operated as a vegetarian company, we strongly believe in supporting sustainable innovation for the reduction of waste and harmful greenhouse gases. Fifoam is a great quality liquid soap with excellent lather and we are proud to support a company which strives for a sustainable future through the complete usage of all biproducts and waste management in their manufacturing process.
Our liquid soap bases can be used straight from the bottle, or scented with Fragrance and/or Essential Oils of your choice. If adding fragrance directly to the bottle, ensure the Essential Oil or Fragrance is stirred through thoroughly before use.
Try using this base in our Foamy Bottles; they are fabulous for using with potassium based soaps and you save so much!

Fragrance Notes: Liquid products often require as little as 0.25% scent, though this is personal, we strongly recommend a small trial - you can add more, you can’t take it away as the saying goes! As with other liquid personal care products, the addition of some fragrances and essential oils may thicken or thin. You may also notice clouding, if this is not what you like, use a natural or opaque bottle.
