Vegan and Free of Top 8 allergens!

YES!  It's coming!  A whole line of vegan products that are free of the top 8 allergenss!  Soap, lotion, cuticle cream, lotion sticks, foot cream, and lip balm!  Free of nuts, wheat (gluten), soy, chocolate (cocoa), dairy, fish oils, eggs, and shell fish products!  All made on separate lines!  Hopefully I can get a shampoo made as well (but that will take more time).

So far we have one soap made (photo soon) that is with Sunflower oil (organic), Sal Butter (aka Ilipe that is a seed butter), castor oil (is NOT a nut allergen), and Babassu oil (Attalea speciosa aka Babassu Palm and replaces coconut oil).  As sunflower oil can get 'rancid' quickly, we use Rosemary Oleoresin to help prevent this (it is an antioxidant and is completely naturally derived).

Why don't we use olive oil?  A recent study from the National Institutes of Health found that sunflower oil is actually BETTER for those with sensitive skin!  Olive oil is also high in estrogenic properties - not safe for those sensitive to any type of hormones (like me!).  So, stay tuned!  We will have all of this up within the week!!
