Everyone! I am so excited to announce that we are utilizing a new, awesome, wonderful Shea Butter! Friends, it is so soft. So good. So responsible.
I just love it.
I found this wonderful company, Baraka Shea Butter (barakasheabutter.com) from the soap maker's guild and I am so happy to now be using their certified fair trade and environmentally sustainable Shea Butter.
This company, located in Ghana and help to support the community where the Shea Butter is harvested. They also work with Sustainable Development Goals:
(which is amazing! http://www.un.org/sustainabledevelopment/sustainable-development-goals/),
So why did I choose this Shea Butter? Well I believe in EVERYTHING this company is doing to make our world a stronger place. They support their people (providing jobs, paying fair wages, employing women) and they support a healthy Earth.
I ordered some, just to see, and I could tell just from opening the box that this was the BEST Shea Butter I have ever seen (and I've seen a lot of Shea Butter). It is smooth, creamy and super moisturizing. Upon utilizing it in production, it makes our products stronger, giving you, the customer, an even better, high-quality skin-care experience.
I truly hope you've enjoyed our products and that you enjoy them even more now. I know I do, and I really believe this Shea Butter will wow you. It sure did me!
A while back, I was listening to Ted Radio Hour and this wonderful TedTalk was on about hand washing. You should watch it...because it's great (see video below).
Basically, this talk by Myriam Sidibe states that the simplest, cheapest way to avoid getting sick is to wash your hands with soap. What? Soap? I have some of that!
Even better, the way we process our soap is all-natural, which means we aren't introducing unnecessary ingredients that could interfere with the work soap is meant to do. Plus, our soaps are super-sudsy, which means the soap is grabbing on to more germs, grime, etc. and rinsing it away (off your hands and body).
Best thing? Our soaps are only $5 per bar. Which makes them affordable enough to have in the shower, by every sink in the house, give to friends, and more!
Let's work together to stay healthy...let's wash our hands.
