WHAT MAKES GROUND SOAP SO AWESOME
We use pure and natural vegetable ingredients in our products, 85 to 95 percent of which are certified organic. We only use pure and natural essential oils to scent our products and that means that even people who are sensitive to scent usually have no averse reaction to it.
Skin issues are often caused by the products that people use every day. Many people suffer from mild irritation, oily skin and seasonal dryness that can be irritated further by using beauty products made with synthetic or animal ingredients.
We choose to only use the best kinds of oils and butters on earth and we source them only from certified organic producers around the world. We then lovingly blend them into our products using low temperatures in order to retain all of their natural enzymes and nutrients. This ensures that the moisturizing and healing benefits of these exotic oils are intact when you use our products on your skin. Best of all, there is no filler, no preservatives, and nothing artificial; just pure and potent skincare made by nature.
We use cold-pressed Virgin Organic Olive Oil from Spain. It is a big ingredient in our bar soap because of it's anti-inflammatory and anti bacterial properties and is well known as a good moisturizer.
We have an ongoing love affair with Shea Butter! We Love it! The fact that African mothers have been slathering their own skin and that of their babies with it for thousands of years is enough to convince us that it's pretty special stuff. The Shea nut grows wild in West African countries where they are hand picked and crushed. The oils are collected after being melted out over wood fires and made into a butter. Ours comes from a certified organic co-operative in Ghana. You can find it in our soaps and as the main ingredient in our skincare products.
From the same bean that brings you chocolate brings us Cocoa Butter. And just like chocolate it's full of antioxidants. It is a very deep moisturizing butter and is known for its anti-aging and wrinkle busting abilities. We use certified organic Cocoa Butter from the Philippines.
OK, it's the buzz oil of the decade but it's for good reason. It's incredibly moisturizing and full of healthy vitamins and natural enzymes that are known to be antibacterial and anti-fungal. Ours is certified organic from the Philippines.
This soft butter is wild harvested from the nut of the mango fruit in India. It is known for its healing properties and is a powerful antioxidant.
We use herbs in our products in several different ways. Some are used for their health benefits, some as exfoliants and some just to add a splash of color. We source them from one supplier and all are organically grown.
We use no scent other than essential oils. We hear all of the time from people who say that they are normally sensitive to scents but our products don't make them react or cause headaches. The real thing costs more but it's worth it.
You'll never find ingredients in our products that are harmful to environments or the people who produce them. For example, we'll never use palm oil! Why? Because the high demand in many industries for this cheap oil means that rain forests are routinely being leveled to make way for more massive palm plantations. We also know that using certified organic ingredients reduces the chance of counterfeiting in the supply chain and ensures that what we use is what the label says it is.
We believe that there is a market for products that are truly pure and organic and people value authenticity. We also think that creating products from the right ingredients is healthier for environments and producers and it really makes a difference in the final result.
