Tumbleweeds soaps are made natural ingredients, often using flowers and herbs and either growing in our garden or those of kind friends. These are infused and their qualities imparted into the oil. Vegetable and nut oils and butters are used for their benefits in skincare; dried petals and herbs may be used or floral and herbal teas; additions are spices, natural colourants, clays and essential oils, honey or beeswax, other natural edibles such as cream etc. My soaps are very definately Palm Oil Free!
Good quality phthalate free fragrance oils such as rose and some of the florals may be used at times because these scents are either now cost prohibitive or not available as essential oils, they also may contain cosmetic grade micas. All ingredients are listed along with each product. Many of our soaps will be seasonal, making use of different plants as they are available....all are researched for their benefits in skincare to ensure safe practice. My soaps are rustic in nature because I like making them that way. Natural soaps do not last as long as commercial soaps (because they do not contain Palm Oil, hardeners etc) they are not as long lasting and the ingredients can deteriorate after 6 months or so - they are soaps made to be used, not admired for years :) To prolong life do not sit the soap in a wet place but on a draining dish or dry face cloth.
I also make Herbal Balms, they are thoroughly researched and I have been producing these for myself and customers for a few years, I get very good feedback on my balms. All are 100% natural.
Tumbleweeds strives to be environmentally friendly and for the four years I have been selling I have been conscious of the need for packaging to be made of sustainable, recycled or recyclable materials.
I hope you love using these as much as I love making them.
