These luscious bars are made with a high-quality essential oil/fragrance oil blend, as Sandalwood essential oil is too precious and costly for a rinse-off product like soap. Due to slow tree growth and high demand, it is becoming endangered. We adore the scent of Sandalwood though, and created this scent blend which is a wonderful imitation. They are vegan, smooth in texture, colored with a swirl of ground dried Sargasso Seaweed, and weigh 5 ounces.
Contains organic saponified oils of Coconut, Palm*, Canola, & Olive, essential oil/fragrance oil blend, Kaolin clay, ground Sargasso seaweed.
*Rainforest Alliance Certified Sustainably Sourced
The Stinky Lewis' Soap Story
Gainesville resident Ariale Lewis launched Stinky Lewis’ Soap in 2000 and began to sell to local shops and farmers markets. Milan Mixson first encountered it in 2005 at a market and was an instant fan. When Ariale announced her retirement in 2015, Milan couldn’t imagine the awesome bar soap disappearing and asked Ariale if she could apprentice with her in order to continue to supply the community with that stinkin’ good soap. Ariale agreed and Milan began learning her recipes and methods, eventually becoming Stinky Lewis’ owner and official soapmaker.
Ariale’s original premium small-batch soap recipe is still used by the small business, right there in Gainesville, Florida. They take skincare seriously and therefore work diligently to source the best quality ingredients. The base oils, which are the main ingredients of soap, are all organic and are certified sustainably sourced whenever possible.
