Have you ever read the back of a shampoo bottle or your soap containers or wrappers? There are so many ingredients listed - and many (a lot of them, actually) are hard to pronounce and even more difficult to understand. Root Apothecary's soaps are handcrafted with all natural ingredients, meant to make the user know they are using a safe, natural product.
I started my journey to Root Apothecary when I became pregnant for the first time, then sadly, had a miscarriage. I was devastated, and before I got pregnant again, I wanted to do as much as I could to make sure I was creating as healthy an environment as possible for a growing baby. I spent time looking at my environment and removing as many toxins and endocrine disruptors from my daily life as I could. I threw out most of my make-up, stopped drinking from plastic bottles, and ate a healthy balanced diet.
Many years, and two beautiful, healthy daughters later, I found I wanted to do more than purchase and use natural, clean products - I wanted to make them. One of the items I make are cold-process soaps. These are wonderful because the maker decides each and every ingredient that is put into the soap. I can add shea, mango or cocoa butters, oils for more suds, clays for moisturizing or cleansing, essential oil blends for fragrance. Each soap is a unique creation that can be used daily, without worrying about the ingredients. Our soaps are always palm free, all-natural and handmade. The ingredient lists are short, and easy to understand.
We hope you enjoy our apothecary soaps! They are made with a lot of love.
