THE SOAP STORY
We started with a mission! The objective was simple: cut all of the chemicals out of the product that we use to clean ourselves. The reason? SKIN is our body's largest organ and only 1 of 2 organs that regrows itself. Being such a great organ that is, Skin, is porous and absorbs whatever you put on it. A study published in the American Journal of Public Health found that skin that came in contact with liquid containing a contaminant absorbed on average 64% of the contaminant dosage.
Conventional soaps contain chemicals including:
Chemicals are no joke, they can disrupt hormones, promote allergies, increase risk of some cancers, and more. Triclosan is a chlorinated aromatic compound and has shown to have disruptive effects on the endocrine system and negatively affect thyroid functions. Methylisothiazolinone is approved by the EPA for preventing mold and bacteria on heavy equipment in oil field operations, cooling systems, and machines used for industrial purposes. To apply the compound workers must wear chemical resistant gloves, eye protection, long sleeves, and a chemical resistant apron.
How We Make It
Saponification is the name of the reaction in which fats are combined an acidic to make a salt. Our soaps are made from taking our organic plant based oils at the precise temperature and combing them with our alkali solution (made from running electricity through salt water) mixing the batch for hours to allow it to thicken slowly, then we add our mixture of Organic Shea Butter, Lavender, Peppermint, Eucalyptus, Aloe Vera, Vitamin E, Vitamin A, Vitamin D. We pour our Vitamin Soap into wooden molds and keep them warm for about 3 days. As the soap solidifies the alkali salts begin rise to top like a cream. We remove the molds and skim the alkali salt cream from the top. Finally we cut the batch into bars and cure them in our specialty drying racks for about three weeks.
Because of our specific creation process our soap is the mildest soap on the available. It is especially helpful for people with dry and sensitive skin.
