Natural and Handmade
All of our products are handmade in small batches from scratch.
All of our products are cut and packed by hand. Therefore, there will be some variation between individual bars and packages.
Unlike mass produced "soap" from the store that are mostly synthetic detergents these soaps contain all the glycerin naturally produced during the saponification process meaning your skin does too!
I'm a mom with two active little boys. I started making products for my family using ingredients I could find in a grocery store. An avid label reader, I was concerned as much about what was going on my children and my family as I was about what was going in them.
As a scientist with over a decade of experience working in academic research laboratories, my scientific training is being put to good use with all the research that goes into formulating safe natural products.
We all know that there's a special kind of attention and care put into things that are handmade or home cooked that isn't going to be put into anything that is mass-produced. That same kind of care and thoughtfulness goes into all of the products I produce.
The ingredients that I choose for the products are processed as little as possible. The natural colorings come from clays, spices, teas and other natural herbal sources (flowers, leaves, roots). No artificial or synthetic colors are ever used.
In an effort to be as eco-friendly as I can, minimal, reusable, recyclable or biodegradable packaging is used as much as possible. I avoid all palm derived ingredients because of the impact production has on indigenous peoples, animals and the environment (yes, this goes for our food as well). The soaps are available in several different lines: naturally scented with essential oils, completely unscented soaps for those with sensitivities, & fragrance oil scents (scents not available or sustainable with essential oils). The choice was made to include fragrance oils because some essential oils are being produced in an unsustainable manner from endangered plant species as well as having the potential to be unsafe for everyone to use. All of the fragrance oils are phthalate free and made in the U.S.A.
I don't offer any products that I wouldn't be comfortable with my family using.
