We strive to use the best possible ingredients. What that means to us is not just the highest quality but also the most natural, most sustainable, most effective and most practical ingredients. This has led us to identify and use as many 'waste' products from our community as possible. At the moment, our main ingredient that reflects this is tallow (we render all of our own tallow). We feel that redirecting waste from our community is the most sustainable thing that we can do and will continue to seek ways to do this in the future.
In addition to tallow, we use coconut oil, rice bran oil (similar to olive oil), sunflower oil and palm oil (Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil certified sources) as the base of almost all of our soaps. We also incorporate local beer (usually tap run off), whey (leftover from the cheese making process), and coffee as well as herbs, fruits and veggies from our own home garden.
Our other ingredients include shea butter, cocoa butter, beeswax, apricot kernel oil, argan oil, natural colorants (iron oxides, fruit/veggie powders, spices, etc.), fragrances (phthalate free) and essential oils, to name a few. All of our products include an ingredient label and if you have any questions we will be happy to answer them for you!
