All of our body care products are natural and handmade in small batches to insure quality and freshness. We use only vegetable oils such as coconut, palm and olive oils and do not use any animal fats. Our soaps and other products are cruelty free and not tested on animals. We test each new product on ourselves and perfect the final mix before we make any product available to the public.
