As a family, we went on quite a wild journey with morals and dietary needs to end up where we are… which is very aware that everyone is beautiful, unique, and diverse. You’ll notice products across the site flagged as Vegan, or Shea-Free, etc. as a way to help our customers find exactly what they are looking for.
We have never used palm oil, lard, or tallow in our soaps. Nor, will we.
We started flagging our Vegan products–vs. those that contain dairy, beeswax, silk, or sugars (due to bone chard)–when our customers asked us to. They were reading a list of vegan ingredients, and then wondering why it wasn’t marked as vegan.
The same thing happened with our Shea-Free and Coconut Oil-Free products. We have customers who are allergic to these ingredients and were very excited to find products they could finally use. We started categorizing to make shopping easier for them too.
While we focus on plant-based ingredients, we do use beeswax in our salves. We also respect the nourishing power of milk, honey, silk, eggs, and a few other animal-based products that occasionally make their way into a limited edition soap. We have even more respect for the animals who supply them, and the local farmers and caretakers who love these animals each day.
We include a full ingredient list on each product on the site. We want you to know exactly what is in each product as we know that you know how important ingredients are.
If you have an allergy, dietary, or spiritual need that requires special ingredients in your skincare products, we encourage you to let us know. We’ll help you choose from our in-stock products or create a custom formula just for you.
