Coming Soon To A Boutique Near You - New Floral Wrapping!
Salt soaps are unique to other soaps in that they need to be wrapped completely (mine also have to have an interior wrapping of plastic too) - this prevents the high amount of sea salt they contain from attracting moisture from the air and ruining the ingredient label they are required to have by law, and also keeps them from damaging (with moisture) property in whatever store/home they are in or purse/shopping bag they are placed in. Although I would love to be able to make them low packaging/low waste I know that probably will never be the case because of this feature. I like to think that they make up for it in how very much longer they last than regular handcrafted soaps that don't contain such a high amount of sea salt and also how gentle these uncommon soaps are to even the most delicate and damaged skin!
