How do we stand apart at Alpaca Soaps?
We are VERY serious about our ingredients and we are committed to using the most natural ingredients possible, free from petroleum products, parabens, phthalates, and sulfates.
When choosing ingredients, we ask ourselves several questions:
Is it zero or very low toxicity?
Does it perform well?
Are we limiting our strain on the environment (palm oils, essential oils, unnecessary packaging)?
Is there a more natural product, or one with a lower environmental impact that can do the same thing?
Will our customer love it?
Most of our scary-sounding ingredients are derived from the humble coconut, so not scary at all. For your safety, products that include water (lotions and scrubs) contain preservatives that will keep you safe and that are low-toxicity.
In addition, we are working on a fragrance-free, color-free product line because we understand that fragrances can be an issue for people with very sensitive skin. Currently, our Lavender and Lemon Verbena lines and Tinglemint Bar Soap are scented primarily with essential oils.
