Bar Soaps

 

 

Because of their formulation issues, bar soaps can never reach the 95% level of organic content. All bar soaps fall short of the 95% organic mark because sodium hydroxide (NaOH,) is required for their production. Sodium hydroxide is on the allowed list of non-organic ingredients that can be used in making organic products, and it accounts for approximately 10-15% of the ingredients, by weight (not including water or salt).


The USDA has determines that “70% is the minimum amount of organic content a product can have and still use the term “organic” in its labeling and marketing”.

 

All of our bar soaps maintain a minimum organic content level of 85%, and are certified under the USDA National Organic Program.
