Each Dial Concentrate Refill Pack mixes with water to form a full-size bottle of Dial Foaming Hand Wash. The cartons are also made with 100% paper-based cardboard and the packs are recyclable thanks to Dial’s partnership with TerraCycle.

Dial’s Skin Smart formulas are enriched with moisturizers and contain gentle cleansers to provide consumers with a balanced cleanse. The refills are free of parabens, phthalates, silicones, SLS and SLES.

As noted, Dial has worked with organizations like TerraCycle to help consumers recycle pumps, caps, bar wrappers and concentrate refills. The brand has also redesigned its Dial liquid hand soap refill bottles to be made with 100% social plastic from Plastic Bank (except for the cap).

According to the company, this lasting change will help Dial save more than 6 million pounds of carbon emissions in 2022 by using 100% PCR for refill bottles. Plus, refills help reduce carbon emissions in transportation by 85%.

The refills are available in three scents: aloe, lavender and sea breeze.
