THE TRAVELER SOAP - Fresh Lime & Citronella Natural Soap, Bug Repellant, Handcrafted Soap, Zero Waste Soap, Outdoors Soap, Camping Soap.

FOLLOW THE SCENT OF THIS LEGEND! (See below)

An antibacterial soap great for outdoor activities and traveling. A new classic! Excellent as a three-in-one (body, face and hair) product, it is greatly appreciated by men. The citrus aroma, finely composed, is refreshing and tonic for the mood.

*** Ingredients: Olive oil, water, organic coconut oil, sodium hydroxide (none remains in the final product), lime and citronella essential oils.

*** Note: All our products are handmade and natural. No synthetic perfumes, no harsh preservatives, ever!

THE LEGEND:
Once upon a time, there was a man whose sole passion was to live at one with nature. Whenever he could, he fled the city for the countryside. He slept under the stars, in a hammock or right on the ground. And his communing with nature would have been complete if it had not been for the thousands of insects that devoured him through the night. They were so ferocious that he was sure they hated him.

One particularly hot night as he contemplated the Pleiades at Mont-Mégantic, he found a change purse filled with ancient foreign coins: pesos, rubies, shillings, Louis d’or and many more. There was also a strange tarnished cross. As he polished it on his shirt, a spirit appeared – the spirit of a traveler. “Beyond hill and dale, brave man, name me the land where you wish to travel.” Caught off guard, he blurted out the first mosquito-free destination that came to mind: Alaska!

The moment his feet touched the frozen ground, he realized that the cold and wild animals were enemies just as awful as insects. He rubbed the cross again, this time choosing Egypt where he braved sand storms and bandits; in Papua New Guinea, he was almost eaten by a tribe of cannibals; in Madagascar, the clouds of grasshoppers made him miss his native Quebec; in Mexico, he could not get used to eating squirrel meat tortillas.

Though tempted by what he had heard of Asia, he curbed his travels after reading the list of recommended vaccinations for fear of the largest insects there. He began to dream of a land known for plants that repel mosquitoes. It was in Thailand where he saw these plants being picked and processed for the first time. With conclusive experiments under his belt, he used the magic cross to return to Quebec.

He finally decided to settle on a parcel of land in Danville, in the Eastern Townships, and there he began distilling and processing evergreens. One night, as he fell asleep in his hammock, the traveller came to the realization that everything he needed for happiness could be found right at home!

A1 - Yes, our soaps are made right here in our soap factory with olive oil, organic coconut oil and beeswax (Frelighsburg). They contain no synthetic fragrances (only essential oils or natural ingredients like honey, cocoa and oatmeal), and no additives, stabilizers or preservatives. They are plant-based and biodegradable and can be used on your body, face and hair.
A2 - The Soleil de l'Est range of soaps are made from organic oils, but we chooose not to certify the product. Many of the ingredients we use are organic, such as coconut oil (100% of the ingredients in our stain remover soap) the shea butter, coconut oil, hemp oil and sunflower oil, but not all are. However, they are neither synthetic nor GMO like many other vegetable oils (palm, soya, canola, etc.). We make the best possible choices and work with local producers whenever possible (Champy for sunflower oil, Naturressence for evergreen essential oils).
A3 - No, and we have no plans to do so. You should know that in order for it to remain liquid, all liquid soaps contain a large proportion of additives (for the texture), stabilizers and preservatives. That means that unless it has a best before date in the 3 to 6 months after it is made, liquid soap is not *natural*. Furthermore, they contain a large proportion of water (first ingredient) and come in a bottle that is rarely recycled and/or reused. As a company, we have made an environmental choice to offer our customers bar soap instead of liquid soap. Did you know that the bottle accounts for about 40% of the cost of production? First you pay for the bottle and the water, then the rest.
A4 - No! When you buy artisanal soap, after each use, it is important to allow it to dry on something that allows air to circulate – the underside of the soap has to be able to dry, ideally on a soap rack. A family of four using the soap daily for their body, face and hair should expect to go through a bar about every two weeks.
A5 - Soaps have to cure (dry) for 30 days before being used. When you buy our soap, it has already cured – no need for additional curing. If you buy several bars of soap at a time, you should know that olive oil soap hardens in the air, so do not wrap them up to keep them. If stored several months, it will become harder and could last longer, but use it within one year of purchase for best quality.
A6 - To ensure optimal quality, we recommend you use our soaps, lip balms and deodorants in the year following purchase, and our body butters and shea butter in the two years following purchase.
