Nestled deep in hundred year old cottonwoods by the bank of the Rio Grande, you'll find an enchanted adobe cottage, hand-built decades ago in a historic neighborhood and lovingly restored to health by our unlikely band of DIYers. That's where your soap is made with a recipe passed down from Great-Grandma who, it is rumored, descended from a long line of elves! There it is cured for 100 days in the desert sun, baking it's way to gloriously mild, thick, rich lather, and smelling like paradise itself.... Our recipes have been developed over time by a geeky analyst and art in roughly equivalent measure. We use the highest quality, food-grade organic oils, only VEGETABLE oils, because animal fat rubbed on ones-self just... eew. Our fragrances are uniquely synthesized unique blends that are raved about. Expect the unexpected. There are no preservatives needed, no phthalates, no parabens, no sulfates, no gluten, pretty much the best stuff and ONLY the best stuff. Our colorants are mica powders, and fun things like cocoa powder, turmeric, beet root powder, paprika, and sometimes a pinch of cosmetic glitter, because - magic and fairy dust!! Our products are never tested on animals, just a mom, and two littles, 7, and 14. Join us on Facebook if you'd like to get to know us. It's fun! Our mission, beyond making beautiful soap, is to grow large enough to employ single moms and other women who have overcome domestic violence, a long term focus of ours. You can read more about that on our website. Feel good about where your money is going. It will benefit more than just you or us.
