About

3 Sisters Soaps & Scents Palm Oil Free

In early 2011, while at the Philadelphia Zoo with Genesee, I learned how palm oil plantations cause quick & vast loss of habitat. Loss of habitat means loss of many species, orangutan, rhino, elephants, and sadly, the list goes on. I tried shopping for palm oil free soaps at local health foods stores and could not find any. All the soaps stating vegan, natural, blah blah blah (green-washing keep your eyes open for those lies, be sure to read ingredient labels) still had palm oil as a main ingredient. It's a cheap, short sighted, ingredient that is totally unnecessary in soap making. I also avoid it in my personal life.

So I started making soaps for my family. Eventually friends became interested, then friends of friends and there you go, a small, woman ran business was born. It continues to evolve, constantly changing because I am constantly learning! My bath & body operation is ran from our cozy 1930’s Pennsylvania bungalow. In my vintage kitchen, I make small batches of cold or hot process, conflict palm oil free soaps, lotions, potions, salves, & balms formulated for sensitive skin.

Cold & hot process soaping is a science but I enjoy and prefer to focus on the artsy side of soap making. By adding 100% natural ingredients such as botanicals, spices, herbs, & flowers from my organically grown garden, I add visual interest, exfoliation, and/or color to the soaps. To scent the soaps naturally I use essential oils, no synthetic fragrance oils. The base oils I use for soaps are organic olive, organic coconut, organic babassu, organic castor, fair trade & organically processed shea butter, which means my soaps are almost 100% organic! When I use an animal product it is always sourced locally from a small, family ran, humane farm.

My mission, every day, is to wisely use the goodness Mother Earth offers. She is giving. She is awesome. She is life. Every day I worship and tend to her lovingly by composting, gardening heirlooms organically, raising backyard chickens for: compost, soil aeration, their glorious nitrogen rich poop, and pest control (bu-bye ticks!). I am crazy about reducing, reusing, re-purposing before recycling my waste (have you read about how inefficient recycling programs are? Well you can here: https://www.newscientist.com/article/mg23531352-000-throwaway-culture-the-truth-about-recycling/).

In my business, I make every effort to purchase raw materials that are responsibly sourced, fair trade, wildcrafted, or organic, to help improve other sacred being’s lives. People who harvest the raw materials deserve fair wages and a healthy environment as do the animals who depend on quality forests, water, and air. Love to all beings!

Shipping
Due to USPS pricing it only makes sense for me to ship in the following boxes:


* Small Priority Flat Rate with delivery confirmation is used for orders of 1-4 bars pf soap or a mix of small, non glass items. $6.80 flat rate.

* Priority Mail Regional Rate Box A with delivery confirmation is great for multiple mixed items and is the box we use for our bulk soap of 8 bars or orders with a mix of lotions, sprays, and soap. Variable rate depending on distance from 19063. At least $6 and at most $11.

* If you only want one small item, first class parcel post will most likely be the cheapest shipping option.

Since shipping on the Regional Rate box is based on distance from 19078, your shipping total may seem high and it probably is BUT I will reimburse you for any overpaid shipping exceeding $1. If you would like, I can create a reserved listing for you with exact shipping. Please convo me.

All shipping materials are reused packing paper, tissue paper, bubble wrap, foam wrap and shipping boxes, please reuse again.
