Sedge & Bee Natural Non-Toxic Bath Soap Bar
Would it surprise you to find that most store bought soaps contain a variety of hidden ingredients? Common additives include everything from formaldehyde to animal fats, ingredients that impact our health, well-being and environment negatively.
Sedge & Bee soap is a plant-based cleanser that uses olive, coconut, sunflower and palm oils instead of tallow or lard. All of our oils are natural, organic, gentle and mild.
Soaps that solely use vegetable fats are also referred to as Ďcastileí soaps. Castile soaps have an extensive history dating back about 2,000 years. They were the first soaps created without the use of tallow or lard, and have since proven superior in cleansing for skin, homes and clothing. The original castile soaps were created using primarily laurel oils. Later, soap makers substituted olive oil, which was more abundant. Today, castile soaps can incorporate any variety of nutrient-rich vegetable oils, from avocado to coconut.
Castile is non-toxic and you can use this biodegradable hand and bath soap every day.
