I have jumped off the 100% natural and organic for all products bandwagon and
I’m not looking back!
My soap is not organic. Because it is a rinse-off product awhile back I actually set the stop watch on my phone and laid it on the shelf next to the bathtub when I got in the shower. In 57 seconds after lathering up my washcloth I had washed and rinsed my entire body from my neck down to the bottoms of my feet. So, no, I am not going to use high-priced organic oils and charge you more for something that is down the drain in less than one minute; I reserve those oils for lotions, creams, shampoos, conditioners and sprays that stay on and penetrate your skin and hair. The oils that I use in my soap are non-GMO, food-grade and come from a reputable nation-wide company.
All Natural does not necessarily mean all safe. Mold, botulism and other micro-organisms are all natural but everyone will agree that we don’t want them in our skin care products. I use broad-spectrum preservatives in all water-based products (and some oil-based products where water may be introduced by the consumer) to protect against gram-positive and gram-negative bacteria, yeast, mold and other microbes following all safety standards. However, even with the preservatives there are outside factors that may affect the products’ safety, using wet or dirty fingers to scoop out cream or scrubs and condensation gathered in a steamy bathroom adding
un-preserved water to the product are just two examples. Please be mindful of how you treat and store the products.
If you have gotten this far I thank you for taking the time to read about why I do what I do. I want you to feel confident that you are getting some of the best products on the market from me. Rest assured that I have thoroughly researched every ingredient I use, natural or not, and have chosen the healthiest and safest ones (in my opinion).
Have a great day, Sheila
