We could say a lot of things here but simply put...we make really great soap. We believe in our original formulation so much we started a different wing of the business to donate free bar soap to cancer patients to help keep their skin healthy and intact while going through chemo. Made using a -unique to us- proprietary method of making soap and the perfect ratios, our soaps are deeply moisturizing, and can be lathered three different ways-- to wash your body, wash your hair, shave with or be grated down and turned into DIY laundry detergent.
Sheeeeesh, where do I start? This soap formulation and I have really been through it all together. Back in 2013 I found out I had contact allergies to 17 common chemicals (fragrance oils, parabens, foaming agents, etc) meaning I was allergic to thousands of commonly found hygienic products. I had no money, a lot of allergies (on top of severe lifelong eczema) and a can-do attitude to just do it myself. A few soap making courses and a lot of barely usable soap later and I had one bar I could use head to toe, make laundry soap with, and was moisturizing enough to not flare my eczema.
How to Pick a Soap
All of our soaps and products are sensitive skin-friendly, but we do play favorites for certain jobs.
Calendula, Carrot Sweet Potato- Great for babies, allergy/eczema prone skin, aging skin, medically impacted skin.
100% Olive Oil- For those with coconut oil allergies. This bar also has the smallest carbon footprint!
Lavender Poppy, Rose Clay and Geranium- For those with a history of sensitive skin who love a light essential oil scent.
Lemongrass, Eucalyptus Bergamot, Rosemary Tea Tree, Patchouli Sandalwood, Orange Jasmine- Great head-to-toe or hand soap bars. Out of this group, Lemongrass is our pick for laundry detergent and Rosemary Tea Tree is our pick for a shampoo bar.
The Exfoliator - For hard working hands. Sensitive skin formula with a heavy dose of exfoliation.
Chamomile and Clay - Our best selling face soap. If you have extremely dry face skin we suggest trying the Carrot Sweet Potato soap as an alternative.
