Let it dry, let it dry!
Please allow your soap bars to dry after each use. It is best to store them on a surface that has adequate drainage so the bar isn't sitting in a puddle. The drier it gets between uses, the longer it will last.
Use a cotton wash cloth or loofah to extend soap's life rather than rubbing the bar all over yourself. Store unused soap in a dark, dry, room temp place like a lingerie drawer or linen closet.
Excessive heat, light, and moisture are natural soap's worst enemies and will cause quality deterioration.
Nature isn't boring.
Nature is dynamic and variable. Because we use actually natural, minimally processed ingredients, they may vary a little from batch to batch. (Did you know that milk from our cows tastes a little different in the Spring when they are grazing on fresh grass vs. in the winter when the grass they eat is dried?).
You can expect some variation in color, shape or appearance as well as some separation or settling of ingredients and some color fading (or darkening in the case of products containing vanilla) in our hand crafted natural products. This is normal, expected and something to celebrate! It means we really did use natural products and makes each product uniquely yours.
What doesn't vary is our commitment to bring these ingredients, in their best form, to you.
We know your family's health and safety is #1 important to you. That's why all of our ingredients are carefully chosen, carefully sourced and relentlessly scrutinized for your well being. Farmer's Body is safe, eco-friendly, healthy and clean. All of our products are free from phthalates, parabens, triclosan, MEA, DEA, aluminum, sodium laurel sulfate, PEG, BHT, and siloxanes.
Sometimes, but only when we really have to.
Because products that are water-based are fantastic growing media for nasty stuff like mold and bacteria, products that contain water must contain a preservative if they are to be safe sitting on a shelf, in a cabinet, etc. and not in your refrigerator. We are super picky. We only use preservatives when we absolutely need to and we do a gosh-darn boat load of research on the ones we choose to be sure they are safe for your babies and ours.
Not all products are listed online. Drop us an email with your request and if we have it in stock, we'll get it in your hands. What else do you want to know? We strive to be completely transparent in our formulas and business practices. Have a question? We'll answer it! Contact us here.
Don't worry, it is still good and still completely useable!
Just pop it in the fridge or wait for it to solidify when the temperature cools off a bit. It may not look as luxuriously whipped any more, but it still 100% safe and effective.
Yes! We love special requests.
Send us an email! We love custom requests- special ingredients, allergies, special occasions (wedding favors, parties, baby showers...) as a small handcrafter, we are happy to accommodate custom orders!
Please note that we do have minimum purchase quantities for custom orders and soap takes a minimum of 4 weeks to fully cure and be ready for bubbly use.
