I love a body care company that keeps their line of products simple with just a few varieties to choose from. Why? Because it makes it easier to decide what product you’ll like and you can determine which scent is your favorite with just a few products. I also love it when a company uses the essential oils or extracts of an ingredient so that the scent is more pure and there’s less possibility of allergens. That’s why when I discovered Sonoma Soap Company, I knew this company was for keeps.
Sonoma Soap Company’s model of business practice is to keep their body care products as natural as possible and use only the highest quality of ingredients. They don’t compromise in using lesser quality ingredients and that’s why they keep their line of products simple – so that they can keep the purity of their products for everyone of all ages and gender to use. Sonoma Soap Company’s products do not contain any potentially harmful ingredients and they promise to keep their products Paraben Free, Phthalate Free, Mineral Oil Free, DMDM Hydantoin Preservative Free, Artificial colorant Free, Diethanolamine Free, and Formaldehyde Free. That’s pretty good to know considering I wouldn’t want all of those junk on my body or my family’s bodies. Since my son also uses their products, it’s even more important to buy body care products that are free of harmful and toxic chemicals. Sonoma Soap Company is also socially and ethically responsible in that they don’t test any of their products on animals, their soaps and liquid products are completely biodegradable, and their bottles and packaging uses only post consumer recyclable materials. And if you look at their packaging design, they’re also incredibly beautiful and serene so it sits nicely on your countertop.
Sonoma Soap Company currently makes beauty bars in three varieties – Lavender Reserve, First Crush, and Citrus Medly. All of them have a light and pleasant scent so even men will enjoy using them too. And for every bar you purchase, five recycled bars will go to people in need. Their other products also include shampoo, conditioner, bath&shower gel, bubble bath, hand soap, hand&body lotion, and shaving cream. All their products come in the 3 variety of fragrances so you can mix and match or use the same fragrance for all of your body care needs. I really like all 3 scents because each of them smell completely different from each other. The Citrus Medley has a really light and refreshing citrusy scent and it smells like a bowl of fresh lemons, limes, and oranges. The Lavender Reserve smells like lavender of course, and the First Crush smells a little bit like grapes since it contains organic grape seeds. And since they’re made with extracts of the fruits in each profile, you won’t smell that icky “perfume” smell since the ingredients are made from nature and not synthetically. Therefore, I think men, children, and women will equally enjoy Sonoma Soap Company’s products. My husband uses it and my son loves all three scents.
Since Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS) isn’t added to any of Sonoma Soap Company’s products, I did end up having to use more of the shampoo and conditioner than I normally would. But I would trade that dangerous hormone disrupting chemical with more soap any day of the week. SLS helps with the foaming action of soaps, shampoos, detergents, etc., but it’s also quite irritating and not the best chemical you would want on your skin or in your body on a daily basis. And since most people shower and wash their hair on a daily basis, you really don’t want that toxic chemical to build up in your body or on your skin.
You can find Sonoma Soap Company’s products in most natural grocery stores or online at their website: http://www.sonomasoapcompany.com/. I also learned that their soaps and shampoo/conditioner sets are used in a lot of posh hotels around the world- so lucky for those hotel guests!
