Main Soap Ingredients

Fair Trade & Organic Coconut Oil

Fair Trade & Organic Coconut Oil reacts with Potassium Hydroxide (for our liquid soaps) or Sodium Hydroxide (for our bar soaps) to create soap. Because it is composed of medium-chain fatty acids, Fair Trade & Organic Coconut Oil gives our soaps lots of bubbles and foam.

Fair Trade & Organic Palm Kernel Oil

Fair Trade & Organic Palm Kernel Oil is used in our liquid soaps together with coconut oil, where it functions identically to create a rich and copious lather. Our Fair Trade & Organic Palm Kernel Oil is sustainably harvested in Ecuador, ensuring that no new deforestation occurs and that no orangutan habitats are harmed.

Fair Trade & Organic Palm Oil

Fair Trade & Organic Palm Oil reacts with Sodium Hydroxide in our bar soaps to create a solid (harder) soap. Our Fair Trade & Organic Palm Oil is sustainably harvested from long-standing palm plantations in Ghana, ensuring that no new deforestation occurs and that no orangutan habitats are harmed.

Fair Trade & Organic Olive Oil

Fair Trade & Organic Olive Oil reacts with Potassium Hydroxide (for our liquid soaps) or Sodium Hydroxide (for our bar soaps) to create soap. Because it is composed of long-chain fatty acids, Fair Trade & Organic Olive Oil gives our soaps an exceptionally soft lather.

Organic Hemp Oil

In our liquid soaps, Organic Hemp Oil is turned into soap when reacted with Potassium Hydroxide. In our bar soaps, it is added after saponification to “superfat” the soaps. In both our liquid and bar soaps, the Organic Hemp Oil gives them a delightfully smooth feel.

Organic Jojoba Oil

In our liquid soaps, Organic Jojoba Oil is turned into soap when reacted with Potassium Hydroxide. In our bar soaps, it is added after saponification to “superfat” the soaps. Because it closely resembles the oils naturally produced by our skin, Organic Jojoba Oil helps to make our soaps more moisturizing.

Potassium Hydroxide

Potassium Hydroxide (KOH) is an alkali which reacts with vegetable oils to produce soap, water and glycerin in our liquid soaps. The Potassium Hydroxide is completely used up in the reaction, and none remains in the final product.

Sodium Hydroxide

Sodium Hydroxide (NaOH) is an alkali which reacts with vegetable oils to produce soap, water and glycerin in our bar soaps. The Sodium Hydroxide is completely used up in the reaction, and none remains in the final product.

Citric Acid

Citric Acid is used in our soaps to adjust the pH level and help “superfat” them, making them more moisturizing. The Citric Acid used in our soaps is Non-GMO verified.

Tocopherol

Tocopherol (Vitamin E) acts as a natural antioxidant in our soaps, helping to give them a longer shelf life. The Tocopherol used in our products is Non-GMO verified.

Sea Salt

Sea Salt is used in our bar soaps to harden them and give them a longer shelf life.

Water

In our liquid soaps, Water keeps our soaps liquid. In our bar soaps, it acts as a binder for ingredients. The Water is purified to remove any minerals that might react with the other ingredients in our soaps.
