What's in your soap?
One of the more popular body cleansing bars you can find in most stores contains upwards of 15 ingredients. Most people probably don’t even know how to pronounce the ingredients, let alone understand what they are for. Ingredients like Sodium Lauroyl Isethionate or Sodium Tallowate (read beef fat). Perhaps Tetrasodium Etidronate is an easier one (it’s a chelating agent that keeps soap scum from building up).
Fireweed Soaps uses ingredients you are familiar with like Olive Oil, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Cocoa Butter, Avocado Oil, and of course Lye (aka Sodium Hydroxide). Other additives used in our soaps include ethically sourced/cruelty free pigments, essential oils, and a variety of fragrance oils.
