What Goes Into Our Soap?

meadow2.jpgNatural & Organic Ingredients
Our ingredient standard begins with the belief that to see and understand the ingredients in each natural product, in each natural shampoo bar and soap, to know what they will deliver to your hair, face & body is key and brings peace & confidence. It continues with the fact that you won't find man-made colors, preservatives, detergents or additives in our artisan, hand crafted soap. Our cold-processed, gourmet soaps are bio-degradable, rich in natural glycerin and good for you and safe for the environment. Many of our products are naturally scented with therapeutic grade essential oils such as lavender, tea tree, ylang ylang, geranium, patchouli, tangerine and rosemary that have added health benefits as well. We color our soaps naturally with organic herbs and spices, vegetable juices and clays and we aim to use at least 80% or more certified organic ingredients in our products. Our ingredient standard stays consistent as we continue to strive to find the highest quality ingredients when certified organic is not possible.

Longer cure time Our cold-process soap is cured for a minimum of 6-8 weeks before time of sale which allows most of the moisture in the bar to evaporate, giving you a hard, mild, long lasting bar of natural soap.
