Naked or Packaged?
In an effort to offer more environmentally conscious choices we offer our soaps naked – no packaging at all – through our website only. Our naked soaps are available at a lower price point. A paper label will be included with each naked soap. You can still get your cold process soaps individually wrapped (in 100% biodegradable shrink film) by checking the box "Add Biodegradable Shrink Film Packaging" when you add to cart.
Directions for use: Lather in hands, washcloth or loofah and wash entire body. Rinse clean. For best results allow soap to fully dry between use.

*ORGANIC †FAIR TRADE
Derived from the nut of the African shea tree, shea butter is a rich natural moisturizer packed with vitamins and essential fatty acids. The antioxidant properties of vitamins A, C and E, help fight the negative effects of free radicals, while essential fatty acids support the skin to produce more collagen. Shea butter’s cinnamic acid content may also be helpful in reducing inflammation.
Rice bran oil
Expressed from the hard, outer chaff of brown rice, rice bran oil has been used for centuries in Japan for its moisturizing and anti- aging qualities. With a fatty acid content that makes it highly moisturizing, it’s light and easily absorbed by theskin. This helps to reduce clogged pores and breakouts, particularly in those with combination and oily skin. A gentle ingredient that’s rich in vitamins B and E, along with antioxidants like beta-carotene and lycopene, to nourish the skin and help slow the aging process.
A rich source of moisture, cocoa butter is made from the cocoa seed and is packed with vitamins, minerals and essential fatty acids that help to boost skin health. It can also create a barrier between your skin and the environment, keeping moisture in your skin where it belongs. Along with its skin-loving properties, cocoa butter also contributes to “hardness” in artisan cold-process soap making, resulting in a longer lasting bar of soap with a fluffy, stable lather.
