We set out to have a fantastic blend of citrus and basil and we feel we nailed it. This soap takes strong citrus notes like Lime a Grapefruit and blends them with the herbal essential oils of Basil, Cypress, and Copaiba Balsam. Together they create a clean and refreshing citrus scent that will appeal to all.

Why do we use the oils we use in soaps? What are the benefits?
Olive Oil: A traditional emollient used in soap because it is mild and gives a "moisturized feel" to the soap.
Sunflower Oil: Very similar to olive with a lighter/cleaner feel to it. The skin feels oh so nice when sunflower is used.
Shea Butter: Makes a creamier bar with a more "moisturized feel". With sensitive skin, reduced lather can be a good thing, so shea butter can be a real assistant, but in the end this has to be "in balance" with the rest of the soap.
Organic Palm: When we use palm, we use organic "sustainable" palm, for the reasons of deforestation in tropical regions (see below for further explanation). Palm and similar, are pretty much necessary to make a harder, stable bar of soap that is appealing to the population majority.
Coconut: One word... Lather. Coconut adds to hardness and creates "big bubbles" in soap. A little goes a long way, too much can be "too effective".
Hemp: We use unrefined hemp to avoid chemical contamination possible in the refining process. It also gives a nice natural aroma to the soap. Hemp oil adds a unique skin feel and moisturizing effect.
