Pure & Natural

So here's the thing. In my last post I claimed that my bath products were 99 percent organic. What I have learned since is that it is very difficult to make such a claim.

To be certified organic, sustainable, and so forth means that you will always and I do mean always, use only and buy organic ingredients. This is the equivalent of having production, seed growing, storage, processing and packaging as organic.

At Soaps by Deni, I do strive to only use the very best and purest ingredients such as: Organic Coconut Oil, Shea Butter, Pure essential oils, 100% Pure Vegetable Glycerin, Certified liquid castile, raw honey and more. But I cannot claim my product line is All Organic. Don't be bummed! Just know that I will continue to make pure and natural products for you that do not contain toxic substances: sodium laurel sulfates, propylene glycol, formaldehyde. My hand sanitizers and foaming soaps will not contain triclosan.

I feel badly that generations of parents proudly bathed our babies with Johnson and Johnson products (for the smell alone) and now the truth is out about how many bad things are in their baby wash and lotions.

Well, I just needed to clear the air and I will change my wording to say All-Natural or Pure & Natural because I for one don't want to mislead my customers. I will continue to stay away from chemicals and substances that cause reactions or make us itchy and miserable. And my products will still continue to be safe for babies and children.

Until next time,
