Ingredients

Curious about what goes on your skin?  Good.  We are proud to be very transparent about the ingredients we use in our products.  On this page you will find information concerning each aspect of our products, from raw ingredients to finished packaging.

S O A P S

Organic Coconut Oil — Coconut oil is extracted from the meat of a mature coconut.  This oil has a high fat content and a stable make-up, rendering it resistant to rancidity.  Its purpose in soap is to act as a moisturizer and conditioner for the skin.

Organic Palm Oil — This is an edible oil, just like coconut oil.  It is part of the saponification process (where lye and fats, in this case vegetable fats chemically break down to become soap), being chosen specifically to result in a slightly harder bar of soap.

Purified Water — “Purified” refers to water that has gone through any purification process, like filters, osmosis, de-ionization, distillation, etc.

Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) — This is lye, one of the key ingredients in the saponification process.  Without this chemical reaction, we would not have soap.

Sorbitan oleate — This acts as an emulsifier, stabilizing the relationship between the oils and purified water.

Sorbitol — Sorbitol is used as a sweetener in foods, and in the case of soap, takes on the roll of thickener and humectant.  A humectant, for those who don’t know, draws water particles from the air.  This is especially useful in products where moisture is preferable, like lotions or soaps, and some food items.

Soybean Protein — This is an amino acid, but acts as another emulsifier and conditioner when added to the soap recipe.
