How does it work?
Shower Pouch erases the smell left behind from your body's natural tendency to sweat. With spa-inspired fragrances, it delivers cleansing botanicals to moisturize your skin and leave you feeling "shower" fresh.
Is Shower Pouch recyclable? Why isn't it biodegradable?
The cloth material is recyclable since it is a 100% Polypropylene non woven material . You will have to contact your local recycling center to learn if they have the ability to manage materials like our cloth. The pouch material that holds the cloth is not recyclable since it is a multi-laminated metal pouch. The high barrier film would need to be disposed of in your standard waste stream.
Our cloth material isn't biodegradable. This was by design. As an avid outdoorsman, you are taught to pack-out what you brought in. Not to introduce "biodegradable" trash into a delicate ecosystem that relies on a balance between bacteria, plants, insects, and animals. Leave no trace behind! In addition, we ADVOCATE that you repurpose your wipe after you're done. Throw it in the washer machine and repurpose the cloth again (e.g. to wash your dishes, to wash your vehicle, to clean your bathroom and etc.)
Are those dry spots on my cloth?
When our cloth material reaches its maximum absorbency from the formula, the material darkens slightly. The contrast between the darker areas vs. the bright white areas can give the appearance that the white spots on the cloth are dry. This is not true! The "light areas" are in fact very wet. Through R&D testing, we determined anything beyond our target fill (formula) can cause our 2' x 1' cloth to begin dripping product when pulled out the pouch. We considered this "dripping" attribute a poor consumer experience. Therefore, your pouch will have the maximum amount of formula to clean you from head to toe while not spilling formula all around you.

Where are your wipes manufactured?

How can Shower Pouch make a claim that it is a Vegan formula? Is it only for people with a vegan lifestyle?
Before we can answer that. Listed below are examples of non-vegan ingredients that are used in some common skincare/cosmetic products:
- Beeswax (aka cera alba, cera lava).
- Carmine (aka cochineal, cochineal extract, crimson lake, natural red 4, C.I. 75470, E120, carminic acid)
This is a protein that is naturally produced in the bodies of animals. In order to extract the protein, collagen is taken from dead animals by cooking cartilaginous animal materials, such as bones, connective tissues, and skin. Collagen is typically used because of its temporary plumping or firming effect and can be found in lotions, creams or lipsticks.
- Guanine (aka CI 75170)
This fat is derived from the grease in a sheep’s hair and is a product of the wool industry. It is most often found in lotions and lip balms.
This ingredient can be made from squeezing oil from the liver of a shark. You can find it in all sorts of moisturizers and cosmetics.
Net: We believe that plant-based ingredients are superior alternatives to harsh chemicals or animal-infused ingredients. Vegan plant-based ingredients have beneficial properties that can heal, soothe, and be gentle on the skin. We care about our customer's skin so we decided to offer the best possible ingredients to our clients.
"Vegan" is a conscious lifestyle decision that we believe in. It is also the centerpiece for creating a 91% organic formula. We understand that the natural skin care consumer cares about the environment and what they put on and inside their bodies.
Shower Pouch is also proud to say that it has never tested on animals. In addition, we only work with “Leaping Bunny” certified facilities for all of our ingredients.
How can Shower Pouch help save you time and money?
The average shower time is about 30 mins (minimum wage at $10) = $5.00 just in your time alone. A typical shower head uses ~2 gallons a minute = ~30 gallons of water for a 15-minute shower. Shower Pouch cost $5 and takes 5 minutes or less to freshen your entire body.
Why can’t I just buy one Shower Pouch online?
Although not available online. Shower Pouch will be made available at limited Athletic Studio locations, via display cases, and at live events for single unit purchases.
Why is the wipe made with alcohol? Will alcohol dry my skin?
No, our consumer test results demonstrated that following the use of Shower Pouch their skin felt clean and moisturized.
Skin care products must be preserved and alcohol helps prevent microbial growth in the product while cleansing the skin. Shower Pouch is made up of a combination of moisturizing oils and juices (e.g. aloe vera juice) which significantly dilutes the alcohol.
