So now that we have a definition how does this word apply to me, my business and what I offer you my customer?
It means that there are a few things I do from the purchasing of ingredients to the end product that I make.
* Natural ingredients used in all products
* Ingredients are sourced locally when ever possible or from a sustainable source
* Packaging is eco-friendly
* Products are biodegradable
* Products are made in small batches and upon request this avoids waste of energy and resources
* Soap making process is environmentally friendly. No Pollution no waste
* Customers are not polluting their own bodies with chemicals which may cause skin problems
*There are no chemicals going into our water systems from the handcrafted soap and other body products.
This is my promise to you.
