These are my favorite shave soaps and I can't be without them. They lather well and wash clean. The herbal mint smells wonderful.
My name is Amber and I'm the heart and hands behind Bambu Earth™.
I live in the city of Long Beach in Southern California with my husband, Donald. I love Jesus and have a huge heart for orphans. I am a self-proclaimed organic beauty expert, herbalist, aromatherapist, soapmaker and spa enthusiast! I have a passion for reading books, cooking from scratch and tending an urban garden in my city apartment. My husband is crazy about sports, loves socializing, and is almost as competitive as me (okay, maybe a little more competitive than me). When he's not at his day job, he's currently employed as my Official Tester, Encourager, Lifter, TentBuddy, and Helper-of-Meeting-the-Deadline. He wears almost as many hats as me!
Our Responsible Soap + Skincare
Bambu Earth was born in Spring of 2009 from a desire to live a simpler, more sustainable life. Our soap and skincare is created in small batches by hand in an effort to better our community and world. We believe that nature, created by God, provides us with all of the tools we need to live a healthy life. For this reason, we use simple, all-natural ingredients, in their rawest form in our products to provide living nutrients to your skin. Our products are made with sustainable, ethical and local ingredients.
Why Handmade Soap?
The natural byproduct of soap is a substance called glycerine. Glycerine is a powerful humectant, which draws moisture to your skin. It might surprise you to know that most commercial soaps are actually not soap at all. They are called "beauty bars". What's wrong with a beauty bar, you ask? Beauty bars cannot be called soap because the glycerine has been removed to be used in more expensive beauty products. What you are left with is basically a compressed detergent, or "beauty bar" that ends up stripping the moisture from your skin. We think that stinks. Soap shouldn't leave you feeling dry and itchy so that you immediately have to slather on tons of chemically-laden lotion. Soap should cleanse and still leave you feeling soft and moisturized. Our soap aims to do just that. We don't remove the glycerine from our soap and we give it a nice, hefty super-fat. Super-fatting means that we add just enough extra moisturizing oils like unrefined shea butter and organic cocoa butter to leave your skin super conditioned. You're welcome.
Why Natural Skincare?
Since our skin absorbs an average of 60% of what we apply topically, we think what you put on your body is just as important as what you put in it. Our skincare is made with only the good stuff so your body isn't absorbing any junk. Our skincare is made using high quality, nourishing ingredients that were designed (by nature) to benefit your skin. Our skincare products are simple, safe and effective. We don't add any cheap fillers or unnecessary ingredients to our formulas. What does that mean for you? Skincare that actually works, naturally.

::About Bambu Earth::
My soaps are handmade from scratch using the cold-process method. My products exclusively contain natural, nourishing ingredients without synthetic fragrances or harmful dyes and colorants. I use only pure essential oils, herbs, botanicals, clays and other natural ingredients to formulate the unique scents and color combinations of each soap. All of my soap recipes palm oil free and eco-conscious!
Each bar comes beautifully packaged and ready for gift giving in handmade plantable paper labels that grow wildflowers! Each bar comes with planting instructions, product information and ingredient listing. Each product that comes in a plastic container will be accompanied by a few ideas on how to recycle and reuse the packaging. (More ideas, photos and tutorials coming soon on http://www.bambuearth.com/.
All Bambu Earth business cards are printed on recycled cereal boxes with an energy efficient laser printer. All invoices are printed on 100% post consumer recycled paper. All thank-you notes are printed on 100% post consumer recycled paper handmade by a fellow artisan. I also frequently reuse packaging supplies.
