All our soaps are made with vegetable oils and butters, with one exception: the Old-Fashioned Lye Soap is made with lard. We use high quality coconut oil, olive oil, palm kernel oil, shea butter, avocado oil, castor oil, and our sunflower oil comes from a local source (sunflowers are the state flower of Kansas).
Several of our soaps are also made with fresh goat's milk, which comes from Screamin Oaks Farm in Tonganoxie, Kansas.
We offer two basic types of soap: 100% Natural Soaps, which are made with all natural ingredients, and Fragrant Soaps which are 99% natural - only the colors and fragrance are synthetic.
