Regarding Palm Oil
Our facial bars contain palm oil. This oil is at the center of an ecological controversy involving the horrific destruction of plant and wildlife using unethical harvesting methods. We were unaware of the controversy's scope until recently. Previously, we believed using sustainable ingredients eradicated the issue. We were mistaken. During the coming year, we will find an ethical alternative to palm oil. This involves reformulating our bars using ingredients that provide our customers with the same high quality they have grown to expect. Please join us in finding alternatives to palm oil, an ingredient prevalent in food, fuel and body care products.

Our founder's favorite quote:
"Never doubt that a small group of thoughtful, committed citizens can
change the world. Indeed, it is the only thing that ever has." -Margaret

I have permission from the owner and CEO of Back Porch Soap Company, Marla Bosworth, to direct you to her enlightening blog. One of the many topics she covers is the use of Palm Oil in Cosmetic Making.
http://backporchsoap.blogspot.com/ Thank you Marla, for your assistance in understanding this issue.

Please note that the weights of our soaps must be approximated becuase they are natural, hand cut bars.
