sells natural cold-process vegetable soaps that are
free from synthetic fragrance or preservatives.
Touring their store/factory is a delight. They use natural herbs and spices to create
soaps, deodorants, moisturizers and more.
The factory itself looks more like a kitchen and they are happy to show
you the ingredients and explain the process.
The smells are delightful and each bar looks like a tiny work of
|Our haul: sassafras birch, ginger neem, eucalyptus mint, rose geranium and more|
|Small bars in the drying rack|
|Their ingredients: bay laurel, annatto, chamomile, lavender...|
Many of the combinations seemed like
salad selections from a great vegan restaurant, such as fennel/mint and
sage/lemongrass. They use natural
products such as pumice and red rice to add an exfoliant. They also have sensitive skin
formulations. One of their funniest
products is a luffa soap, which is a luffa dipped into soap and then sectioned
into round bars. If you take a tour,
they give you free small bars.
Most bars are less than $6 and we loaded up with more than
ten plus a deodorant.
We are planning a
trip to Asia, so my selections included “Camper’s Choice”, which includes
citronella – a natural insect repellant.
The store is located in “The Hill” neighborhood.
It’s an area full of great Italian
restaurants, casual cafes and gelaterias.
Herbaria also sells through its online store.
