Saponified oils of sunflower and/or safflower, coconut, and palm, essential oils of pink grapefruit, calendula petals, and rosemary
Jade Bloom produces soap with a very high set of standards. Every bar we make has an unsurpassed quality and complies with the strictest definition of natural. Unlike other companies, we have taken our product to an even higher standard of natural: USDA Organic Certification.
These days, everyone claims to have natural products. This is why we decided to pursue organic certification for our soaps and soap making supplies. Organic certification represents a higher commitment to natural. It not only means we don’t use unnatural or unhealthy ingredients. More importantly, it means we use only the purest ingredients, ones grown and produced sustainably and in accordance with USDA Organic standards.
In order to produce such quality and certified organic products, only the most natural ingredients. All of our fragrances are pure essential oils (plant extracts); our colorants are herbs, and our preservatives are plant extracts. None of our soaps contain synthetic fragrances, colorants, or preservatives. Our base oil blend is a combination of certified organic coconut oil, palm fruit oil, sunflower oil and safflower oil.
Palm fruit oil makes up a portion of our soaps as our organic palm oil contributes to the hardness of our bars, ability to lather, and the moisturizing properties. Palm oil is becoming a problem because palm plantations in Indonesia and the mainland of Southeast Asia are rapidly taking over forests. In addition to the basic problem of deforestation, this is a concern because it severely diminishes animal habitat in these regions. For all of our soaps, we use only certified organic palm oil from South American countries that is grown and produced using high levels of sustainability and our suppliers are members of the Palm Sustainability Council. We do not source any palm oil out of Southeast Asia or Indonesia. If the only palm oil we could find was produced unsustainably, we’d change what we do.
