Our Ingredients

Our Oils

Oils

We use oils from Ontario-grown crops including sunflowers, soybeans, meadowfoam, and canola. We choose cold-pressed and unrefined oils whenever possible. We also use tallow and lard from animals that have been raised with care on small local farms. We get to know our farm producers so we can be sure their approach is in line with our own. And we carefully combine these oils to craft natural soap that is long-lasting, creamy, and conditioning to your skin.

Our Liquids

Liquids

When crafting our handmade soaps, we rely on locally-sourced liquids that contribute something to the final bar. Goat's milk soap is known to be nourishing and conditioning. Apple cider contributes to a bubbly lather. And beer brings a creaminess to our bar soaps.

Our Lye

Lye

Lye is an alkali salt (NaOH) that gets dissolved in liquid and combined with oils to produce soap.

Without lye, there is no soap!

Our Colours

Colours

You won't find neon colours or sparkles in our bath & body products. We use only natural colourants like activated charcoal, ground dried botanicals, clay powders, and spirulina. These natural colourants bring a subtle touch that perfectly complements our natural formulations.

We simply don't use synthetic colourants.

5 Essential Oils

Essential Oils

Essential oils impart wonderful, delicate scents to our bath & body products. We use cold-pressed and steam-extracted essential oils and avoid those that have been solvent-extracted.

We simply don't use synthetic fragrance oils.

Our Botanicals

Botanicals

Pure dried botanicals are amazing! We gently infuse dried botanicals in oils to impart their qualities to our bath & body products. We grind them into powders to add colour & scrubbiness to our soaps. And we add them whole to our Botanical Bath Soaks.

We grow and wild harvest some of our own botanical ingredients, and we plan to grow more as we expand our pollinator garden.
