***A word about our ingredients. We list sodium hydroxide on our bars,
which is one form of lye. To make true soap soapmakers must use
lye. Sodium hydroxide is used to make bar soaps. The combination of
lye with fats is called saponification - the chemical term for
"making soap." We age our soaps at least a month, many much longer,
to assure the soap is soothing, not irritating.

We also strive to keep our soaps as sustainable as possible,
which we've chosen to include vegetable oil as such. We realize
that vegetable oil is made with soy, a heavily genetically modified
plant. But our alternatives are palm oil or lard. We do make lard soap
occasionally, but people prefer the vegetable oils. Palm oil is most frequently gathered
from deforestation of the rain forest. Sustainable palm oil is very expensive
and using it would make our soaps too expensive for most people.
We've chosen to employ American workers with vegetable oil,
rather than destroy the essential rain forest.

We also avoid jojoba oil because it is being overly
harvested, threatening our planet's biodiversity.

Our customers have commented:
"It's like my personal spa."

"I love your soap. I feel like I just used lotion and it's been 5 minutes
since I washed my hands." (Trial using a test bar at a recent craft sale.)

"I had to use it because there was nothing else. I had lithium grease on my hands and needed to try and get them clean. Your soap cut the grease! It's the only thing I've found that will. - And my hands felt great afterward."
(A skeptical husband who's wife has used our soap for 2 years)
