We use premium grade, sustainably harvested oils in all of our soaps. We do not use palm oil.
Olive oil, a natural antioxidant, helps to guard the skin from premature aging. It contains Vitamin E, phytosterols, and polyphenols. Olive oil also contains hydroxytyrosol, which prevents free radical skin damage. An added bonus - it won't clog pores as it penetrates deep into the skin for ultimate moisture and skin food.
Coconut Oil also contains Vitamin E, helping to sooth irritated skin, eczema, and psoriasis. It is absorbed easily by the skin and helps delay the occurrence of wrinkles.
Rice Bran Oil has been used by the Japanese as a facial oil for quite some time. No wonder they have such beautiful, youthful looking skin! Not only does it contain antioxidants like betacarotene and lycopene to protect from environmental stressors, it is rich in Vitamins B and E to protect and nourish the skin. Enzymes of CoQ10 help maintain a youthful, radiant glow.
Castor Oil is high in ricinoleic acid, helping fight that acne-causing bacteria. It is a moisturizer offering many benefits including smooth and supple skin, while evening out skin tone. It penetrates deep into the skin due to its omega-B fatty acids and encourages the growth of healthy tissues.

Jojoba Oil is considered a luxury oil and superfood for your skin. Jojoba oil, actually a wax, is rich in Vitamin B and E, and acts as an anti-inflammatory to control sebum production, thereby helping control acne, psoriasis, and cracked skin.
Tamanu Madagascar Oil is rich in fatty acids, which aid in skin tissue regeneration. Palmitic acid helps smooth the skin and stearic acid acts as an excellent cleanser. You can find this luxury oil in our mineral cleansing facial bars.
We only use premium grade butters in our products. All of our soaps are currently made with three butters: cocoa, kokum, and mango. Our body scrubs contain shea butter.
Cocoa Butter is a popular ingredient in many cosmetics and beauty products. It helps retain moisture in skin. Cocoa mass polyphenol helps alleviate symptoms of eczema and dermatitis. Cocoa butter contains mostly saturated fats which are easily absorbed by the skin and remain there to protect the skin hours after application. Its polyphenols also improve skin tone and elasticity.
Kokum Butter, also known as the healing butter prevents skin from drying out and helps to heal dry, cracked skin while generating new skin cells.
Mango Butter helps protect the skin from UV radiation without being greasy. It is rich in Vitamin C and promotes firm, plump skin. That glowing look? Mango butter achieves that with its high Vitamin A content.
Shea Butter contains cinnamic acid making it a superior anti-inflammatory. High in Vitamin A, it acts as a great moisturizer and collagen booster. It helps to relieve dry, winter skin and rashes with its antibacterial properties.
