Could you explain and pronounce each ingredient in your current body care routine? Many people disregard the ingredients on what they buy because they simply don't understand everything listed. However, it is imperative to know what you are putting on your baby or yourself.
" Sodium Laureth Sulfateis used as a surfactant and emulsifier to add foaming & sudsing benefits in hand soaps. The health concerns with this are organ system toxicity and irritation of the skin, eyes, and lungs. Even more concerning is the contaminant that can form as a by-product of the manufacturing process called1,4-dioxane. This nasty chemical is a known carcinogen."

Our Story and Why We Care
We know the importance of taking care of our bodies. In addition to that, we very well know the struggle of finding affordable organic products that will do our bodies right. Because of this, our mission is to provide honest, organic, and, most importantly, affordable products for our customers.
But while brainstorming a product that could benefit a wide range of people, we decided to distribute something that everyone uses and needs, soap. The average person can wash their hands from anywhere of 10 times a day to 20. If your body must go through this process repeatedly daily, it's only right to use a product that nourishes your skin instead of drying it out.
We researched more about soap and what organic truly means. In the beginning, we tried making the soap ourselves, but we didn't enjoy the process. We then came upon various soap manufacturers who were USDA certified. They sold private label soap, which means we customize or pick out soaps made with certified organic ingredients. So, not all of our products are handmade. Our body oils are entirely handmade. However, this does not change that we sell soap and oils made with certified organic ingredients. All of the suppliers we go through, go through the USDA for organic product inspection.
We strive to put the best quality ingredients in our products to ensure that your skin is protected and nourished. For instance, our body oils consist of USDA certified organic safflower and sunflower oil. You won't find any artificial preservatives or fillers to "stretch" the batch. In every product description, we include facts about what's inside, and it'sits multiple uses.
