How are your products different from the soap I get at the grocery store?
First, you can pronounce every ingredient that goes into my soap and bath bombs. I use a blend of five plant oils, lye (sodium hydroxide), and fragrance oil. That's it. These oils have been meticulously selected for their benefits to the skin. Sugar scrub does contain a few ingredients that may be hard to pronounce but they are derived from the coconut. My products contain oils that are plant based and I NEVER use palm oil.
What's so bad about palm oil?
According to Ecosia, rainforests have been deforested and replaced with vast palm oil plantations. In these man-made monocultures, local wildlife can't survive, and the palm trees' roots soak up huge amounts of water, destroying the soil. It's not the tree that's bad, it's the destruction of the rainforests to grow the tree that's bad. There are responsibly harvested palm oils so do your research before buying products that contain palm oil.
