Any soap labeled “Organic” at The Soap Haven is truly organic, meaning it is made of at least 85% organic ingredients. Why not 100%? Because it is impossible to make soap without lye (sodium hydroxide) which is 10-15% of the initial ingredient weight. However by the time the oils are saponified, there is NO MORE lye left in the soap. This is far superior to lots of skin care products in the market deceptively labeled as”organic”, but really are just water and chemicals with a few token drops of organic extracts. Our Organic Handmade Soaps are made from organic, GMO-Free ingredients and contains absolutely NO Parabens, Sulphates, Phthalates or any other chemicals. Being organic it also means NO pesticides or fumigation chemicals have been used on our ingredients and will be applied to your skin!
