Product Ingredients

beakers00012.gif

Our soap is milder than commercial soap and does not contain any harsh detergents or chemicals like store bought products. Our products are not 100% natural due to the need for preservatives to keep products from going bad. The FDA has no approved natural preservatives. So occasionally you may see an un-natural ingredient. Please read each product ingredient if you have any kind of allergies. We will create any of our wonderful soaps or body care items unscented and/or no coloring, Just tell us that's how you would like it made.

I've listed the ingredients below that I use in my products, each item has a full description posted beneath the name.

Allantoin

A botanical extract of the comfrey plant.  We use it in our products for its skin healling and anti-irratating properties.  It is also know to help boost cell rejuvination.

Silky hair & scalp conditioner, contains antiseptic fatty acids that are said to promote healthier skin in lotions, creams and soaps

Cyclomethicone
Most all of the ingredients we use are natural,but some are not. We are very careful when selecting synthetic ingredients. We make sure that these are proven to be beyond any doubt,safe to humans and not harmful to our environment. Cyclomethicone is one such ingredient. Cyclomethicone is an unmodified silicone that stays on or near the surface of the skin. It evaporates quickly after helping to carry oils into the top layer of skin. From there, they may be absorbed by the skin. It performs a similar function in hair care products by helping nutrients enter the hair shaft. You find this ingredient in our Hair products, foot spray and our body and linen sprays.

Epsom Salt
Improves circulation & soothes sore muscles, used as an exfollient in body scruds. If you are diabetic, please consult your doctor prior to use.
