Bar Soap | Bergamot Orange - 100% Natural, Handmade


by Craftsman Soap Co.

The Product:

Bergamot Orange is a bar soap made with a blend of orange and bergamot essential oils. These two oils work great in combination - the warm, sweet citrus aroma of orange zest is blended harmoniously with the herbal, spicy citrus notes of bergamot. A hint of cedar grounds the light citrus with a depth of woodsy scent, and added rose clay helps to give the soap its warm orange color. Known for its cleansing properties, rose clay is particularly mild kaolin clay, giving the lather a silky feel and helping draw impurities from the skin.

Order placed is for one bar of soap, net weight 4 oz.

Ingredients: Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Water, Lye, Shea Butter, Castor Oil, Cocoa Butter, Orange Essential Oil, Bergamot Essential Oil, Rose Kaolin Clay, Rosemary Leaf Extract

The Maker:

"When we say our soaps are “100% All-Natural Handmade Soaps,” we mean it. But what exactly does “All-Natural” mean? There’s no standard and agreed-upon definition for natural, so we’ve committed to crafting our own standards for our products:

Minimally processed ingredients sourced from natural origins. This means we search for close-to-nature botanicals, oils, and ingredients to make our products.

Free of synthetic fragrances and colorants. Sticking to what's come from Mother Nature is really important to us, so we steer clear of anything that's originated in a laboratory or at a refinery.

Going beyond natural: Palm-Free products. With all the concerns surrounding the deforestation and lack of sustainability in palm oil production, we’ve decided to avoid the controversy and avoid palm oil altogether.

Tallow: the perfect soap ingredient. Tallow has a bad reputation – many like to disparage it as a way of separating themselves from other soapmakers. The truth is that tallow and palm oil are nearly identical, without the environmental cost of deforestation and a 10,000 mile journey. On it’s own, tallow makes a gently cleansing, skin-conditioning soap with a dense, creamy lather, and in our soaps it contributes significantly to the overall high quality of our soaps.

Up-cycling: reversing our impact on the environment. It is a with pride that we work with local sources to collect as many of our ingredients as we can, and our tallow in particular makes a large positive impact on the environment. We rescue suet from local butcher shops (where it has no further purpose), which we then purify ourselves to create a tallow that not only makes a better soap, but minimizes the miles our ingredients travel to get to our workshop and into your homes."
