Natural handmade soaps and bath essentials
We are committed to totally natural goodness in all our handmade soaps and bath essentials. Our natural goodness commitment is as follows:
Essential oils only! All of our handmade soaps and body essentials are formulated to include naturally good aroma! We use essential oils only, that is the oil extracted from plants usually by steam distillation producing an aromatic essence of the plant. No synthetic fragrances are ever used. Our soap artist is extremely sensitive to them and we don’t think they’re good for you either.
Vegetable oils only! We don’t incorporate animal fats in any of our products. We use naturally good vegetable oils in all our soaps and body essentials. Our natural handmade soaps are made up of a minimum of 30% olive oil, most of our recipes are comprised of 38% olive oil. Whenever we reduce the olive oil it’s to add another naturally good for you emollient like shea butter or cocoa butter.
Artistic color expression! We want our natural bath products to be pleasing on three sensory levels. We want it to appeal to your nose, your skin, and your eyes! We make our natural handmade soaps and bath essentials visually pleasing because it adds to the experience of using it. It’s kind of like art for your shower. But it smells good and feels good too. So how to do we add color in a naturally good way? We don’t ever use dyes. We use clays and botanicals to create beautiful color. Sometimes herbs and clays don’t provide the unique color appeal our soap artist is looking for. In that case, we sometimes use pigments in the form of ultramarines and oxides. Ultramarines and oxides are the only manmade ingredients we use, because the natural – from the earth - form of ultramarines and oxides contain harmful substances. When we do this we let you know, so you can easily choose from among our 100% natural handmade soaps and our 99% natural handmade soaps.
Handcrafted! Every naturally good handmade soap or bathing essential is made from scratch, that is, we start with wholesome good for you natural raw ingredients and finish with an all natural bath essential intended to nurture a unique you. All of our natural handmade soaps and bath essentials are created in small batches. Our Soap Artist and Founder, Susanne Schlador, personally develops, creates, and tests every recipe and every batch.
Sustainability! We are committed to green principles. Some of the ways that we do this are:
- In the production of all our handcrafted soaps and bath essentials we use natural raw ingredients (and secure organic when pricing allows) to create a biodegradable product.
- We design our product packaging with a minimalist approach and use recyclable materials.
- When shipping products we reuse whatever we can and also use recyclable materials.
- We grow herbs and botanicals to be incorporated in our products.
- We secure local suppliers whenever possible.
We look forward to serving you. If you have any questions about our natural goodness commitment or our products please contact me.You have my personal commitment to natural goodness in every bar of handcrafted soap and bathing essential!
