3 Great All-Natural Vegan Soap Bars

A beautiful, and great-smelling, bar of soap can add so much joy to a bathroom or kitchen. We love having vegan and cruelty-free bar soaps in our soap dishes so much that, sometimes, we take up to 20 minutes examining the selection of aromatic and gorgeous bars in our local health store just to pick out the most perfect one. Usually, we find a handful of soaps that we could easily buy on the spot. So, we’ve found that what works best for us is simply choosing one that calls to us, either because of the scent or color (moisturizing ingredients). Then, we enjoy that bar until it’s a little sliver that we can’t handle anymore and set out to purchase another amazing one. Continue reading [...]

Soap Soap Company

We love when we find small companies that take on big agendas, like keeping animals safe and committing to crafting only vegan products. We recently discovered such a company. We came across Soapy Soap Company, a (you guess it) soap company that creates 100% cruelty-free, all-natural soaps from scratch.
