'All-Natural Defense' Natural Vegan Soap:

I don't know if you've looked at the label to read the ingredients of the many antibacterial soaps on the market, but I have. The long list of unpro-nounceable ingredients, along with the question of effectiveness and safety have made antibacterial soaps the focus of an FDA investigation. With reason!

I won't promise you that 'All-Natural Defense' has extreme antibacterial and anti-fungal effects, but I can tell you that it is made with only natural ingredients and essential oils that have been safely used for ages - that are known to have some antibacterial and anti-fungal properties.

Play it safe. Why use soaps full of chemicals when you can use a natural soap with essential oils that is gentle to your skin and has known essential oil properties - certainly better than worrying that your chemical-laden antibacterial soap may adversely affect your health!



From NBC NEWS on December 16: Go to the following link to read the entire article: http://www.nbcnews.com/health/think-twice-about-antibacterial-soap-fda-says-2D11744235

"It's not a new issue. The FDA started asking about triclosan in 1978. Environmental groups and some members of Congress, such as Massachusetts Democrat Edward Markey, have been calling for limits on the use of triclosan. The National Resources Defense Council (NRDC) sued and the FDA agreed last month to do something about triclosan by 2016.

“It’s outrageous that FDA has waited 35 years to protect the public from this harmful chemical. This final rule should prohibit triclosan from use in soaps,” Mae Wu, a lawyer for NRDC’s health program, said in November.

There’s no proof yet that triclosan is dangerous to people, the FDA says. But studies are ongoing and there are hints it could be.

“Animal studies have shown that triclosan may alter the way hormones work in the body," the agency said. While animal studies don't always predict a problem for humans, the FDA said the studies "are of concern to FDA as well, and warrant further investigation to better understand how they might affect humans."

Check our ingredient list: This soap contains only the following ingredients: Castor oil, Coconut oil, Olive oil, Palm kernel oil, Shea butter, distilled water, and a mix of 4 essential oils that have been used for centuries, perhaps millennia. This soap has a nice mild herbal fragrance. The only other ingredient, and the one that turns a mixture of oils and water into soap, is sodium hydroxide, a.k.a. 'lye.' All soap contains lye. Without it, you simply have oils and water, which, if you remember from chemistry class, don't mix.


Each hand cut soap bar comes with its own distinctive label and is wrapped in a clear cello bag, ready to give as a gift.

Large, Appx. 4.5-5.0 oz. bars
