When you hear the name “Old Whaling Company”, you don’t automatically think of vegetarian body care products. But that’s exactly what this company sells! In fact, most of their offerings are vegan, except for a couple that contain honey and/or goat’s milk. Their line is inspired by the sea, featuring handcrafted items with shell, whale, and other oceanic motifs. Perhaps best of all, everything is super affordable!
You’ll love their website, www.oldwhalingcompany.com. It’s colorful and straightforward, showcasing the products in a tantalizing manner. You’re bound to go wild over their selection of body butters. So many to choose from, but our favorite is the Coastal Calm variety ($14.00 for one, or $24.00 for two). It features a base of aloe and shea butter. This balm contains no mineral oil, parabens, sulfates, phthalates or color. In fact, none of them do! You can use this vegan product with complete confidence.
Roll-on perfumes are a nice accessory when you want to look and smell pretty. The Old Whaling Company offers eight different kinds, all inspired by the sea. Each one costs $14.00, or $24.00 for a duo. Some of our favorite scents include Seaweed and Sea Salt, Coastal Calm, and Admiral’s Apple. These perfumes are made from sunflower and calendula oils, sourced locally from One Wild Acre in Charleston, SC. They smell fresh and go on smooth!
We love a good bar soap. They’re beautiful to look at, efficient, and free from excessive packaging. Old Whaling Company’s soap line is made from olive, coconut, and soybean oils. They come in many tempting aromas, but we’re drawn to the Seaberry and Rose Clay Soap ($7.00 for one bar, or $24.00 for four). The addition of rose kaolin clay makes this offering truly special. This item is rated a solid five stars on the company website. One happy customer wrote: “They’re rich in lather, leave your skin feeling so soft head to toe – they compare to none.” Such a great testimonial!
Old Whaling Company offers free shipping on all orders over $48.00. They have a wholesale program for folks who want to distribute their products. Remember: almost everything here is vegan, and all products are cruelty-free, but there are a few items that contain goat’s milk and honey. So don’t forget to check those labels, or write to the company with questions. We feel confident that you’ll love this fun, affordable, high-quality line. And please remember to pick up a few extra items as gifts for friends and family!
