If your Dad or your baby daddy has a beard might I recommend some of our beard balm as a father's day gift...also the tobacco leather soap is a great father's day gift idea as well (beard not necessary). #barsoapisbetter #smallbusiness #plasticfree #fathersdaygifts #austintexas

Did you that custom soap orders is something that I do? Here is some custom soap that I made for @campwright1930 . They got their own custom soap stamp, and we collaborated on the scent. It smells so good, that I wish I could sell it...but I can't because it's theirs. #custommade #barsoapisbetter #handmade #smallbusiness #smellssogood

Check out this new soap that I'm calling Open Meadows. The smell reminds me of line dried clothes in a field of fresh cut grass. It is the perfect spring/ summer scent, very vibrant. This soap also comes with a reusable produce bag that you can use at the farmers market or at the grocery store. #1889caryroad #barsoapisbetter #handmade #plasticfree #austintexas #fresh

#barsoapisbetter (mine specifically) because it doesn't come wrapped in plastic, everything is fully usable or compostable, takes up less shipping space than liquid soap, and it’s better for your skin. Try some out and make the switch. #handmade #smallbusiness #cpsoap #plasticfree #zerowaste

This is baby soap. I created it for a friend that was having a baby and i love how it turned out. Even if you aren't a baby it is a great gentle soap that is unscented and will make your skin baby soft. #handmade #smallbusiness #barsoap #barsoapisbetter #plasticfree #babiesofinstagram #baby soap

Yesterday I had the pleasure of dropping off 120 bars of soap for donation to the neighbor 2 neighbor program based out of St. James Episcopal Church. I also got to stick around and help back up 195 bags of groceries to go out. This soap will go out in these bags which will be delivered to those in East Austin who are at high risk for covid and shouldn't be getting out to get supplies. Thank you to all of you for making this possible.

I've been messing around with new formulas for the shave soap. I didn't love the last one. The lather wasn't as strong and stable as I would have liked, So I decided to retool it. I've finally landed on the right recipe. This shave soap makes an incredibly rich and extremely stable lather. It actually makes me excited to shave. It will be available for sale, but won't ship for another week as it has to cure for a little longer. It also happens to be vegan and palm free. #shavesoap #handmade #smallbusiness #lather #austintexas #allnatural #vegan #palmfree

They are all free of aluminum, parabens, and phthalates. The only scent currently available is juniper lemon, but more will be coming soon. #handmade #allnatural #deodorant #smallbusiness

Introducing our new mini soaps. Coming in at 1.5 oz which is just shy of half the size of a regular bar. Perfect for hand washing, traveling, or just not wanting to commit to a full size bar. Not yet available in all styles of soap. Currently available in beeswax honey, lavender oatmeal, human shampoo and dog shampoo. #handmade #austintexas #cleanliving #smallbusiness #cpsoap

These are my dogs, and this is our new dog shampoo. While my dogs may not love bath time, 1 more so than the other, they both agree that this all-natural dog shampoo is amazing, it leaves them clean, and smelling great, with a silky soft coat. It's a very generous sized bar that will save at least 2 plastic bottles from landfill doom. Give it a try. #dogs #dogsofinstagram #handmade #plasticfree #smallbusiness #sustainableliving

The conditioner bars are back and for good. I've finally perfected the formulation (and got the right kind of cocoa butter). This little bar is worth at least 2 (non costco sized) bottles of conditioners. Go completely plastic free in the shower. #handmade #smallbusiness #plasticfree #bekindtotheearth #loveyourself

Thanks to you all from orders from December 1st through now, 74 bars of soap are to be donated to local shelters and food pantries in #austin . And just as a reminder the buy one give one is not a temporary thing from now until forever, for every bar of soap purchased, a bar of soap will be donated. #greenliving #

For some reason I have all these pictures of soap in my top nine. Had I known 2020 was going to be the year it was, I don't think I would have started a business. I'm glad I didn't know, because despite the challenges it gave me the space to learn and figure the world out just like everyone else.

12/14/2020

Due to my own holiday travels, any orders placed after December 17th will not be able to be filled and shipped until December 28th. Additionally due to shipping times if you want it in time for Christmas, I would suggest ordering as soon as possible. Alternatively gift cards are great gift options for people who you aren't sure what they might want and are instantly downloadable and usable. #giftideas #suppotsmallbusiness #sustainableliving

Since the inception of this company, in living up to our name “for the good of human kind” I wanted one of the principals to be for every bar of soap purchased another gets donated to a homeless shelter/ food pantry. I wasn’t really in a a position with inventory and all the time I spent making masks to make this a reality. I am so pleased that I am now able to do this, so for all orders placed from December 1st until the end of time, for every bar of soap sold another one will be donated to a local Austin homeless shelter, or food pantry. If you know of any organizations in Austin that you feel would benefit, please let me know. I’d love to spread the love around. #community #handmade #forthegood #austintx #buyonegiveone

This shave soap is ultimately the first soap that I ever planned to make. My first attempt at making a shave soap made a very nice soap, bit it wasn't a shave soap. After much research, asking many questions and learning about how to make shave soaps (it's a whole different process) I finally have one. It smells just like an old school barber shop and it makes the most rich and creamy lather for shaving. I love it, and you will too. #soap #shavesoap #artofshaving #barbershop #handmade #smallbusiness

If you've ever ordered anything from me, then a sample of soap has come with your order. In the process of making soap there are pieces on the ends that don't look good enough to sell, or maybe I smushed a corner when demolding or for many other reasons I end up with odds and ends of pieces of soap. There is nothing wrong with them, they just aren't good looking enough. So I sample them out. But now I want you to be able to choose your own sample, instead of my blindly guessing what you might like. So if there is something you've wanted to try but didn't want to commit to a whole bar then on your next order just order a sample as well. Pretty much everything is available for sample including beard oils. Obviously not masks, or anything made from fabric, or that I couldn't give you a sample size of .

I've been asked a lot about what to look for in a soap dish, and the most important thing is to find one that keeps the soap away from any water. If the soap is in constant contact with moisture it will absorb it and become soft and not last nearly as long as it should. I am finally offering some of these silicone soap dishes for sale. The ridges keep the soap elevated and the bottom part is angled so that any additional water will drain off back into the sink or shower. Because they are silicone they are flexible and versatile. Easy to wash by hand or in the dishwasher, and they won't absorb any excess moisture like wood or Bamboo will. They come in 5 different colors including this purple one here. @ Austin, Texas

We can now call our shampoo bars all natural. I have retooled the recipe to include the essential oils or rosemary, peppermint and tea tree. And am no longer using a fragrance oil for it. It is the same great base recipe so it still has that wonderful lather and will clean your hair oh so perfectly without stripping it of its own essential oils. I also made the bars just a little bit bigger to really last the extra mile. Give them a try today, you won't go back.

Also coming soon are conditioner bars

Also also, today is the last day that proceeds from everything sold except masks will go to @colorofchange and @showingupforracialjustice

For all orders made today I will also match the contribution from the proceeds.

06/03/2020

In case you missed it in my story all proceeds from sales of this soap, and all products except facemasks, until Saturday, June 6th at 11:59pm, will be donated to @colorofchange and @showingupforracialjustice
