All its soaps are handmade and handcut. The basic recipe starts with rice bran oil, an excellent moisturiser. It considers it immoral to kill an animal for a bar of soap; so all its soaps are made with pure vegetable oils and essential oils which do not clog skin pores, unlike animal fats. Palm oil is added, containing a high percentage of oleic; this makes the soap a superior conditioning and cleansing bar. Palm kernel and coconut oils provide even more moisture and give a rich, fluffy lather. Finally, olive oil is added as an emollient to produce a deep, moisturising effect.
