Environmental Practices

  • All of our products are tested on family and friends, not on animals.


    Our products are handcrafted in small batches, and our soaps are individually cut and packaged by hand, using sustainable, fair trade, organic products when available.

    • We use no chemical additives or preservatives, only naturally occurring elements, and select ingredients that are ecologically responsible.
    • We also consider the distance they have to travel. If possible, we buy ingredients that do not have to travel great distances, or we buy from bulk suppliers within North America.
    • The ingredients are certified organic, fair trade when available, either food grade or cosmetic grade, and unrefined.
    • The scents are produced by combining pure essential oils.
    • The colors are the result of the natural combination of ingredients.
           Please visit our ingredients page to find out more details about specific ingredients we choose to use and those we refuse to use. 


    Our goal is zero plastic. We strive to use ingredients and packaging that are produced with the least amount of processing and the least impact to the environment. In order to achieve zero plastic there must be alternatives provided by our suppliers. In some cases there are no alternatives. We will always choose to use an alternative to plastic when available.

    Currently, there is zero plastic in the packaging for our soaps, the packing material used to ship our products has zero plastic, and there is a small amount of plastic in the lids for the containers we use for our skin nutrients. Some of our supplies used in the crafting of our products are provided in glass or metal containers.


    Soap Wraps – The paper for our soap wraps is sourced from a local company, made from bamboo grown without pesticides or fertilizers. Totally acid free, chlorine free, and made exclusively by a historic New England paper mill. Printed with vegetable-oil based and low-Volatile Organic Compound (VOC) inks and solvents.

    We use a limited amount of paper handcrafted in Nepal from the Lokta plant, which is comprised of several species of Daphne. It is an indigenous plant of Nepal found at an altitude of 6500 to 9500 feet. The bark of the Lokta has been used as paper for thousands of years. The plants are harvested by cutting the stems at ground level without destroying the main root. Lokta regenerates naturally in 2 to 3 years, with no adverse effect.


    Labels – We use Certified Fair Trade paper made from wildgrass, 100% tree-free and natural. 100% Recyclable, Compostable, and Natural, Totally Chlorine Free (TCF). Paper is unbleached or non-chlorine bleaching has been used to avoid creating dioxins.

    The shelf life of this handcrafted soap is 12- 24 months, but they can last longer if kept in ideal conditions. We have had good results with storage in a plain brown paper bag, in a dry, cool place. It is best to avoid storage in humid conditions. Handcrafted soaps naturally contain glycerin, which attracts moisture. Keep the soap dry between uses. Discoloration of the soap may occur if stored with other products that cause oxidation. Long term storage as a sachet is not recommended. These products contain no artificial preservatives.


    Even naturally produced products can result in a reaction if a person is sensitive to the ingredients. We strive to provide a product that is suitable for most users. Please check the ingredients carefully before ordering. Feel free to contact us for additional information on any product we offer.
