Palo Santo Essential Oil // The aroma of this essential oil promotes serenity, a feeling of security and promotes connection to the earth. Distilled from the palo santo tree, which is native to South America, its name means “holy wood” and it is traditionally used in ritual for cleansing the environment. The Palo Santo essential oil in this soap is distilled from naturally fallen dead wood, which is collected in partnership with traditional communities in Peru, under the supervision of the Peruvian ministry of forests (SERFOR). The purchase of this Palo Santo essential oil helps support the preservation of forests from clearing for agriculture.
Luma Essential Oil // Also known as Peruvian myrtle blossom or Arrayán, Luma essential oil has a very refreshing & purifying aroma which helps calm and balance emotions. Luma is a medicinal shrub native to the Andean region that is traditionally used as an antioxidant and skin cleanser. Our peruvian myrtle is wild grown in the Sacred Valley region of Cusco, Peru. Our supplier works with community partners to trim and collect branches of this renewable resource.
Upcycled Soap // The “terrazzo” look of the bar is created using pieces of our complexion soaps that were too imperfect to sell. We donate most imperfect bars to a local women’s shelter, but still have many fragments that we wanted to repurpose to reduce waste.
Olive Oil // A fatty acid rich oil that is pressed from the fruit of the olive tree. Olive oil is traditionally used in French soap and lends moisturizing properties to our cold process soap. Our olive oil is extra virgin, cold pressed and certified organic.
