Each bar is chock full of organic and natural botanicals, seeds, nuts and grains that color and provide the unique look of the soap. We also LOVE exfoliating, so they all have a different level of exfoliation from light to super scrubby.

They are ordered in the above photograph according to their scrubbiness (left to right, least to most).
dog shampoo, beer shampoo, fennel orange, citronella fir, tea tree eucalyptus, grapefruit mint, lavender lemon, black walnut sage, rosemary lime, tangerine basil
All soaps are made, cured, hand-cut, and wrapped, one-by-one, by us, in small batches in our Brooklyn studio.
