Commom questions. Simple Answers.

Does the bottle have to be emptied before adding a new tablet?
We recommend emptying and rinsing the bottle before adding a new tablet.
Is Tallo hand wash hypoallergenic?
While we cannot claim that our hand wash tablets are hypoallergenic, we can confidently say that they are non-irritating and non-sensitizing. Furthermore, our claim is backed by clinical testing conducted at an independent third-party lab when we were formulating our hand wash.
Is Tallo hand wash an antibacterial or disinfectant?

Our hand wash does not contain any antimicrobial agents which are generally required to support disinfectant or antibacterial claims. Nevertheless, hand soaps, particularly those that contain surface-active agents, have been proven to be effective at removing dirt, including germs, from the surface of the hands being washed.

Is it safe for children and pregnant women?

Our product is free of harsh chemicals, making it safe to use around pregnant women, children, and animals. However, we recommend you consult your physician before using our product.

We recommend the use of fragrance-free products for your little one. Keep in mind that your child’s pediatrician or dermatologist is there to provide guidance on how to care for your baby’s skin.


Can I use the hand wash if there is some residue left?
Yes, it’ll dissolve. Despite some residue left behind, the hand wash is effective and ready for use. The residue will eventually dissolve!
Should I use cold or hot water to dissolve the tablet?
The tablets can be dissolved in either hot or cold water. We recommend dissolving them in room temperature water (tap water) to get a great rate without causing bubbles and overflow.
Do I need to shake the bottle when making the hand wash?
No. The tablets will disolve by themselves. Stirring it and shaking will form a lot of bubbles and might overflow the bottle.
Can I use the refill tablets without buying the bottle?
Yes, any bottle with a foaming pump nozzle will work.

Love it!

I just love Tallo! I’m really happy and excited we have access to such green products. Great texture and smell. My hands are no longer dry after using it compared to other soaps. Definitely will buy more refills!


It’s a good product.

Bought the handwash for the first time. I was actually expecting a bit stronger smell, but I guess it’s okay since it has natural ingredients. Overall, it’s a good soap to try.

Pleasant smell

It fits nicely in my main washroom. I started with the green tea scent and it smells really great!

Such a great product. No plastic at all. The texture of the foam is great, and it’s easy to dissolve.

I love it!

I love the design so I was so keen to try these – got them yesterday and I absolutely love them!

Great product

It’s a great idea to make our hand soap more sustainable. The kit was very easy to use, all you do is add water to the fill line and drop in a tablet, I was able to dissolve my first tablet within 50 minutes. You can definitely feel it doesn’t dry out your hands, but I can’t wait to try it next winter. It is definitely a product I recommend for everyone to try!

First time using it!

That’s my first time ordering from Tallo. I was a bit skeptical about buying it, but don’t regret it at all! It gently cleans my hands, and the foam is great, not liquid as I thought. I love how they stayed with their mission to be more sustainable, even with the packaging. Recommend to buy.

Yes, I would recommend Tallo to a friend


Very gentle

The last two years have been filled with a lot of hand washing, and my hands were getting chapped. It feels very gentle and it’s definitely an upgrade to what I have been using at home. I bought the neutral option for my young ones at home and it was excellent to use and doesn’t dry out their hands. I will definitely buy again in the future, highly recommend.

I really liked Tallo

Cute little packages. I got a tons of dispensers which allow me to try these. It doesn’t seem to strip my skin in any way.

Yes, I would recommend Tallo to a friend



The product is great and we love the eco-friendly packaging. We like that the fragranced options don’t give off a heavy perfume smell like other brands do.

Yes, I would recommend Tallo to a friend


Easy to refill

I love that they have a reusable glass bottle. This soap smells good. Really like how it’s easy to refill your foam with tabs.
