Using solid hygiene products is ultimately better for the environment by reducing plastic consumption. It also makes traveling easier by reducing the number of liquid products we travel with. Yet, traveling with bars of soap can be inconvenient; the soap gets soggy and consumed faster. The Soap Shell reduces the amount of residual water and separates the soap from it during storage.
Concept Diagram and Design Constraints
The Soap Shell has design constraints in addition to the ones imposed by the main function of being a travel accessory. In order to prolong it's life cycle, the Soap Shell must be durable and with "timeless" aesthetics that are proven to persists through different trend cycles such as natural materials and organic shapes.
After an entire year using the Soap Shell, I have traveled 11 times and I have taken it with me every single time. The soap is always dry.
