Aquarian Bath Inc is an herbalist owned small business. Natural ingredients always come first. Whether growing my own herbs organically or purchasing certified Organic herbs, I always am very particular with these ingredients checking ingredients for proper color and taste. My products have always been chemical fragrance free and dye free. Most of my soaps are scented with pure essential oils, which are a higher quality and more expensive natural ingredient with aromatherapy benefits. Aquarian Bath soaps have also always been Palm Oil free or Orangutan friendly. Though many sellers list "sustainable palm" as one of their ingredients, the definition of sustainability is questionable. I recommend reading eco journalist Ashley Schaeffer on The Rain Forest Action Network for ongoing news on the topic of palm oil and sustainable palm oil. The majority of my soaps and shampoo bars are now vegan. Products do not contain GMOs or SLS.
Aquarian Bath is a work in progress as we continually work toward reducing our ecological foot print in terms of energy and material consumption and choosing the most eco friendly ingredients. For this reason you will find the majority of items are shipping with no packaging (naked soaps) by default, or limited packaging, and avoiding plastic as much as possible. Kraft boxes are available separately with labels for gift giving with soaps. I hope you like what you find and please feel welcome to contact me if you have any questions or suggestions.
