Choosing a Product
We offer three separate product lines, labeled according to their ingredients, to help you make the best choices for products that suit your needs:
Naked (FAIRY) – Our “natural and gentle” Line – These products are suitable for children and babies, or people with very sensitive skin. This line contains no colorants or fragrances.
While allergic reactions to our pure and natural ingredients are uncommon, we recommend you test our products first on a small patch of skin for 24 hours. In the unlikely event that redness or irritation develops, discontinue use.
From the (FAIRY) Garden – Our “natural” Line – No dyes or artificial colors and no fragrance oils are used in this line. We do use natural soap ingredients, such as plants, herbs, spices, fruits, vegetables and essential oils.
The additional colors, (natural) fragrances (ex. essential oils), and plant additives may not be suitable for people with certain sensitivities.
While allergic reactions to our natural ingredients are uncommon, we recommend you test our products first on a small patch of skin for 24 hours. In the unlikely event that redness or irritation develops, discontinue use.
Wicked – Our Artisinal Line – While it is our goal is to use the best quality, most natural ingredients available, this is the line where we get to explore additional products that may include more sensitivites. We still use the same high quality base ingredients as our other lines, while adding a touch of whimsy and wickedness with fun colors and alluring scents. The main coloring sources for this line are ‘nature identical’ pigments, micas and oxides, and these products may contain high quality fragrance oils for scent. Any products that contain FDA approved dyes, pigments, lakes and/or other synthetic colorants are clearly marked.
While allergic reactions to our products are uncommon, we recommend you test our products first on a small patch of skin for 24 hours. In the unlikely event that redness or irritation develops, discontinue use.
The FDA requires that the label for any cosmetic (this includes our lotions, balms, scrubs and other ‘beauty’ products) includes a complete declaration of ingredients. In the United States, if a soap is a “true soap” (made primarily with lye, water and oil) and makes no other claims than it is soap and cleans, it not considered a cosmetic and therefore does not require the listing of ingredients. We list all of our ingredients, on all of our products (including our soap), so that you can make the best informed choice in regards to allergies and personal preferences.
Oils & Other Base Ingredients
The soapmaking process will work with any animal or vegetable fat or oil, but not with petroleum- based oils. Traditional soaps were typically made with the most available oils/fats – those from animals – lard or tallow. I do not currently use either of these in my soap and bath products. Most of my products are vegan-friendly; however, my balms (lip, skin, and beard) have beeswax as part of the base. Occasionally, a milk product, such as goat’s milk or yogurt may be part of the product. If beeswax, honey, silk, or a milk product (or any animal product) is included in my products, they will be clearly marked as such. If any product does not explicitly state that it contains an animal product, you may safely assume it to be vegan friendly.
Many of my soap bars include Palm Oil in their formulation. I understand that some people would rather not use Palm Oil due to their environmental concerns, and I do offer many products and several soap formulations to have no Palm Oil in their recipe. However, in doing my own research on the product, I believe that the best solution is to ensure you buy products that contain sustainable palm oil. Simply replacing the worldwide use of Palm Oil with other vegetable oils would actually create similar – if not even larger – environmental and social problems. I buy my Palm oil from a distributor of responsibly sourced, sustainable Palm Oil.
