The Handmade Bar
Batches follow strict measurements of ingredients for consistency. However, each batch is made by hand and we gather fruits, vegetables and herbs naturally. As such, slight color and aesthetic discrepancies may occur in your finished bar. We hope you will embrace the beauty of the handmade bar and remember what mother once said -- "It's the inside that counts!"
Fragrances and Essential Oils
We love essential oils and their medicinal properties are essential to our products. However, we do use natural fragrance oils in our soap bars. Natural fragrance oils are plant-based and not synthetic. There is a myth amongst us that all Fragrance oils are synthetic and only essential oils can be all-natural. This is untrue. Natural fragrance oils are blends of isolates that are derived through many of the exact same processes that are used to get essential oils. The difference is in whether you are extracting an entire compound (essential oil) or a single molecule (natural isolate). If you’re still unsatisfied or simply curious, Vetivar Aromatics does a great job boiling the facts down.
Our soap contains no preservatives, hence we recommend using them within 5 months after the “cured by” date as this is the average shelf life of the natural oils and butters that we use to make them. For a longer lasting bar, please store away from direct sunlight or running water. Do not store unused bars under the sink, the soap will attract moisture from the heated pipe’s condensation.
Sensitivities & Allergies
Even Keel Soaps contain NO sodium Lauryl/Laureth Sulphate (SLS), Parabens, Mineral oils or synthetic colors. We do, however, use a variety of herbs, seeds, and lots of nature. It is our best interest for you to know what we know, and we suggest you do a test patch if you have sensitive skin and discontinue use if necessary. If you have any concerns about being sensitive to certain products or ingredients, please get in touch prior to placing an order to discuss.
