Why Natural Soaps?
Your skin is your largest organ.
60% of the substances you put on your skin are eventually absorbed into the bloodstream.
Take a moment and read the labels.
Mass-produced commercial soaps contain a lot of harmful chemicals that can disrupt hormones, aggravate or promote allergies,cause reproductive issues and increase risks of some cancers.
These chemicals consist of 4 main culprits – Fragrance, Parabens, Sulphates, Triclosan,
(Fragrance – Regular exposure can affect the central nervous system, trigger allergies, migraines and asthma symptoms
Parabens – Decreases muscle mass; increases fat deposits; cause early onset of puberty; spurs reproductive difficulties in both male and female
Sulphates – Used to produce lather and bubbles in soap – is an irritant to most people with skin conditions like eczema and psoriarsis
Triclosan – Promotes bacterial growth resistant to anti-biotic cleansers)

We only make very small batches.
All of our soaps contain unrefined Shea butter.
