Artisan Natural Soap & Skincare
Cold process soap and small batch skincare. Mindfully formulated with 100% natural ingredients. Free of toxins, synthetic fragrances, and artificial colorants. Plant-based and palm-oil free. Handcrafted and sustainably packaged in Lexington, Kentucky.
We believe in the benefits of a clean, non-toxic, delightful self-care routine. We are convinced that nature provides the very best ingredients to turn your daily bathing and skin care rituals into a rejuvenating experience. And we firmly believe that our collective impact on the environment should be as minimal as possible.
We formulate our product recipes with 100% natural ingredients that are safe for you and your family, and gentle on the earth. As an environmentally conscious company, we are committed to avoiding ingredients that we deem unsustainable. Our soaps are made without the use of palm oil (an ingredient found in commercial and artisan soap alike, and whose popularity contributes to the devastation of the rain forest and its rich ecosystem). As plant-based living enthusiasts, we are also committed to keeping our offerings free of animal-derived products such as tallow, lard, and animal milk (as of 2020, the meat and dairy industry is the third leading cause of climate change).
Ingredients WE LOVE TO USE
• Plant-based oils/butters and milks
• Fresh herbs
• Dried botanicals
• Certified pure essential oils
• Natural clays
• Sea salts
(As much as possible, we source ingredients that are fair trade and organic)
Ingredients WE NEVER USE
Sodium lauryl sulfate (SLS)
Synthetic fragrances – That includes so-called "natural fragrances", which manufacturers unscrupulously market as natural or nature-equivalent. These "natural fragrances" are formulated with the use of chemicals that are not required to be disclosed by the manufacturer. The fragrance industry is poorly regulated by the FDA, which allows manufacturers and suppliers to get away with using misleading terms such as "natural fragrance".*
Artificial colorants – That includes micas, which manufacturers and suppliers often attempt to pass as natural by calling them nature-equivalent. If it's made in a lab using a variety of chemicals to create a "nature-equivalent" product, it is therefore not natural.*
* Whether synthetic fragrances and artificial colorants are safe is up for debate (research suggests that chemicals found in synthetic fragrances and colorants can negatively impact our health and pollute our environment). We are of the opinion that harmful chemicals should stay out of our bodies and environment as much as possible. We think it's important for consumers to be given a chance to make informed decisions when purchasing personal care products and for that reason, we believe in transparency when it comes to labeling our products. We choose to only use certified pure and natural ingredients so we know exactly what we put in our products, and in turn, you know exactly what's in your products.
