Natural & Organic Soaps

I understand how important it is use sustainably grown,  free trade products in my soap making, even when it costs a little more.  Whenever possible I purchase Kosher, Vegan and Organically grown materials.  The few suppliers I purchase from are very proud to carry items like QAI-certified organic Palm oil, sourced from Colombia, and holds USDA, NOP, RSPO, and the well respected Rainforest Alliance certifications.  The palm oil industry faces major objections due to its production impact on wildlife, specifically orangutans in Borneo and Sumatra.  They are intentional about the country of origin of our palm oil and seek to source product from countries where the orangutan is not native.
