These are the oils we use in all our products. They make up the foundation of the products and are the most important part of caring for your unique skin. Butters is a term commonly used for oils that are solid at room temperature. Butters have oils that are not completely broken down by the soap making process. Basically, we add butters to help moisturize and smooth your skin.
We believe in transparency on our products and informing and educating customers about our products. Below you will find a list of our ingredients with brief descriptions about them. If you have any questions about our products please contact us.
Canola Oil (Brassica Napus)- Canola oil is something most people are familiar with for cooking, but did you know it is great for conditioning the skin.
Cocoa Butter (Theobroma cacao)- Cocoa Butter is like coconut oil in that it is often mistaken for a nut and few people are allergic to it. Cocoa is derived from cocoa beans that grown on the chocolate tree. It is known for its moisturizing properties and improving elasticity
Coconut Oil (Cocos nucifera)- Coconut oil has recently gained recognition for its benefits for your skin. Although coconut oil can be a little drying, it produces a nice fluffy lather in soaps and is a great cleanser. Contrary to popular belief, coconuts are not technically a nut. (Well, they are, but they aren’t.) Only around 2% of the world’s population is allergic to coconuts. The confusion stems from the FDA’s classification of coconuts as a seed, a fruit, AND a nut. We chose to use coconut oil in our soaps because it is widely tolerated by people with allergies and we use non-GMO, organic coconut oil. If you have a topical nut allergy, please check with your doctor.
Kokum Butter (Garcinia indica)- Kokum Butter is a luxury oil derived from the seeds of the fruit bearing Kokum tree. Kokum butter is known for moisturizing without the greasy feeling. Some think it helps reduce wrinkles and inflammation.
Mango Butter (Mangifera indica)- Mango Butter as its name suggests is derived from mango seeds. It is known as a great conditioner for your skin.
Olive Oil (Olea europaea L)- Olive Oil is known for making the gentlest of soaps. Most oils need to be blended with other oils to make soap, but you can make 100% olive oil soap called Castile soap. Castile soap is widely used by people with sensitive skin, or skin allergies.
Palm Oil (Elaeis oleifera)-Palm oil is a favorite among soap makers for its ability to make a hard bar of soap with a stable lather. However, palm oil is often harvested by child labor working in poor conditions. In many countries the demand for this oil has led to deforestation. That is why we only use RSPO palm oil which is sustainably harvested palm oil. The Round Table on Palm Oil (RSPO) is a global, not-for-profit organization with voluntary members that is focused on bringing together stakeholders from across the palm oil supply chain to develop and implement global standards for sustainable palm oil. They have developed a set of environmental and social criteria that companies must comply with to produce RSPO Certified Sustainable Palm Oil (CSPO). These measures help minimise the negative impact of palm oil production on the local environment, wildlife and communities.
Shea Butter (Vitellaria paradoxa)- Shea Butter has been popular for many years. It is derived from the shea nut and is known for conditioning skin and repairing damage. We use it in limited formulations because we want our products to be accessible to everyone including those with nut allergies.
Shorea (Sal) Oil (Shorea Robusta)- Shorea (Sal) Oil is derived from the seeds of the Shorea robusta tree native to India, which is naturally processed. It is a hard oil which helps in making a longer lasting bar and adds to the stability of the soap.
