Ingredients: Currently, all of our soap recipes are made of at least 84% certified organic oils.  Some are close to 96%.  We strive to use organic ingredients when possible.  

Paper: Our paper labels are embedded with wildflower seeds and are plantable. The paper itself is lotka paper, made from the bark of the Daphne bush which regenerates naturally providing a renewable resource.  By using this specific paper, we are benefiting the economic enterprise of rural craftspeople in Nepal. 

Product Packaging: 100% paperboard packaging, which is renewable, biodegradable, recyclable, and a great eco-friendly alternative to petroleum-based plastic.
