The ingredients used are not tested on animals. The final product is also not tested on animals, only on husband and children ;)
We package all products plastic free. What we do use are for example fsc certified cardboard boxes for the soap and shampoo bars, glass for the bottles and aluminum for the lids and caps and aluminum cans for the body butters. All these materials are 100% recyclable.
Our natural soaps are handmade using the cold process method. This method of soap making involves mixing vegetable oils (we don't use palm oil!) and butters with lye. Lye is a mixture of water with NaOH (sodium hydroxide or sodium hydroxide). The oils, butters and lye enter the saponification process. After the saponification process and the drying period of the soap, nothing is left of the lye (which is why it is not listed on the ingredients list). The saponification process also produces natural glycerine. This is naturally present in every piece of cold process soap, so we do not add it as a separate ingredient.
