What's that funny sticker in our shop window?

You might have noticed a membership sticker in our window recently. It doesn't mean "here's soap colored green" or "happy silly cheerful gifts" ... it means something much more important to you as a consumer.

  1. Promote the handcrafted soap & cosmetic industry and assist in its recognition and acceptance.

If you ever have questions about ANY product in our store, you need only ask. If we don't know the answer, we will happily look it up so that you can have peace of mind about the products you take home with you to enjoy.
