Our Soap Box

When my mom and I decided to start up a little soap company a few years ago, we had no idea where we were headed. All we knew was that we wanted to make a natural line of body products. Once we did that successfully (our testers didn't break out in hives) we decided we wanted to purchase organic ingredients so we started buying anything organic that we could find.
Continuing to research, we began learning more and more about Fair Trade. There was no question in our minds, we used so many ingredients that could be purchased fair trade, we began our quest to change any of our ingredients that we could with their fair trade counter part.
So here we are, two years later with our line of Natural, Organic, Fair Trade Bath & Body Products.
Our new project is applying for our Fair Trade Certification Status with TransFair Canada. This will allow us to carry the Fair Trade Logo on our line and know that we really are doing our part.
So that's a bit of who we are and how we got here. We are really excited to show you the fruits of our labours. So please stay tuned as we try to navigate our way through the land of blogging.
Please feel free to contact us with any questions about our product or even any fair trade questions you may have. We are by no means experts as there is always more to learn, but we can direct you to some pretty informative websites.
Thank you for taking the time to read,
Sweet Leaf Bath Co.
