We don't use animal fats, milk, or honey in any of our products. All Herbaria soaps contain only food-grade vegetable oils and sustainable plant materials.
In contrast, Procter & Gamble started up in Cincinnati because that was where the stockyards were located. Indeed, even today, most commercial “soaps” are made largely of detergents and animal fat.
Though we may not be certifiably halal or kosher, we can assure you that our soaps are 100% vegetable-based.
Our soaps are not tested on animals other than Soapy, who gets an occasional bath in Soapy's Choice.
Our soaps are biodegradable. They include no synthetic preservatives, no artificial colorants, no artificial perfumes. They don't come in a plastic bottle. Each bar is wrapped in a simple half-sheet of recyclable paper. The plastics we kinda have to use, like for our Deodorant or Citronella Mist, are recyclable.
In our little way, we are working toward a more peaceful, sustainable, and just society.
