    LEAP Organics - Bar Soap Eucalyptus - 4 oz. (113 g)

    LEAP Organics Eucalyptus Bar Soap is made with organic fresh mint leaves and anise. Wake up! Look alive! LEAP Organics Eucalyptus Bar Soap contains the perfect blend of pure organic essential oils to perk up your morning mind. The eucalyptus stimulates, the mint refreshes, and the anise enlivens. LEAP Organics also loaded this soap with organic shea butter that intensely moisturizes and nourishes your skin with vitamins A, E, and F. Make no mistake—this slab of minty suds is sure to stir your senses.

    All of LEAP Organics' bar soaps are cruelty-free, not tested on animals, vegan, biodegradable, gluten-free, triple-milled, and produced using renewable energy (wow, that's a mouthful). Their bar soap packaging is 100% recyclable, contains 50% post-consumer waste, is FSC-certified, and is manufactured using wind energy.

    LEAP Organics
    An Innocent Little Company
    LEAP uses only natural goodness, ingredients you'd recognize in a farmer's market, goodies that haven't gone through beakers, vitals, burners or boilers. They channel invigorating mint and eucalyptus to make a tremendously refreshing body bar. No PhD in chemistry required. (And no BS.) They believe in harnessing the purity of the best things in nature - and then giving something back. That's why they use recycled packaging and renewable energy, pursue zero-waste, sustainable business practices and donate 3% of sales to non-profits. That makes clean skin for a clean conscience.

    About LEAP's Ingredients

    Organic Standards
    Organic refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed, but the term “organic” does not mean anything without formal certification. The world's most stringent organic certification process remains the USDA's National Organic Program (NOP). An organic ingredient or product that is certified organic by the USDA NOP guidelines is the gold standard. No ifs, ands, or buts about it. All of LEAP's organic ingredients meet the USDA NOP guidelines, and this is something LEAP does like to brag about!

    In order to have your ingredients and products certified organic, a company must enlist the services of an organic certifier. These folks are third parties that verify that a company's ingredients and processes have met all of the USDA's organic guidelines. LEAP uses Oregon Tilth to certify its organic ingredients and processes in accordance with the USDA's guidelines. Oregon Tilth is one of the nation's leading organic certifying agencies.

    What does it mean to be certified organic?
    For starters, no toxic pesticides or herbicides were used to grow the ingredients. In order to be an organic farm, the land on which the plants are grown must not have had prohibited substances applied (such as toxic and persistent chemical pesticide and fertilizers) for three years prior to the farm being certified organic. Secondly, farmers and processors must keep detailed and audited records of methods and materials used in growing or processing organic products. In addition, a third-party certifier approved by the USDA must inspect the methods and materials used annually.

    Lastly, and just as important, all handlers and farmers are required to maintain an Organic Systems Plan detailing their agricultural practices. This plan outlines how their specific farm will meet the USDA's National Organic Program (NOP) standards. For most farms, this means the use of: crop rotation to prevent soil depletion, planting cover crops to add nutrients back into the soil, releasing beneficial insects and birds to prey on pests rather than insecticides, and adding composted manure to help the land retain moisture and nutrients without the need for chemical fertilizers.

    More about organics and organic standards:
    Organic refers to the way agricultural products are grown and processed. It includes a system of production, processing, distribution and sales that assures consumers that the products maintain the organic integrity that begins on the farm. National organic standards set out the methods, practices and substances used in producing and handling crops, livestock and processed agricultural products.

    Organic production is based on a system of farming that maintains and replenishes soil fertility without the use of toxic and persistent pesticides and fertilizers. Organically produced foods also must be produced without the use of antibiotics, synthetic hormones, genetic engineering and other excluded practices, sewage sludge, or irradiation. Organic foods are minimally processed without artificial ingredients, preservatives, or irradiation to maintain the integrity of the food.

    Consumers can look for the “USDA Organic” seal or other approved labeling, and for the name of the certifier on the label of the products they consider for purchase. Products labeled “100% Organic” and carrying the “USDA Organic” seal are just that – they contain all organically produced ingredients. Products that are made from at least 95% organic ingredients, and have remaining ingredients that are approved for use in organic products may also carry the “USDA Organic” seal. In addition, products that contain at least 70% organic ingredients may label those on the ingredient listing. Producers and processors voluntarily use these labels, and may use organic ingredients without being required to label them.

    "Organic" vs. "Natural"
    What's “organic?” What's “natural?” Is it “orgatural” or “naturanic?” The natural and organic labels in the soap and skincare industry are sometimes as confusing as the entire plot of the show Lost.
    Below are some points that should help to clear up some of the confusion:

    1. Certified organic ingredients come directly from nature. Natural ingredients come from nature (usually – more on that later). BUT, only certified organic ingredients are organic. While both certified organic and natural ingredients come from nature, only certified organic ingredients are grown and farmed according to very strict farming and agricultural practices that differ greatly from non-organic, conventional (natural) farming practices.
    2. Certified organic ingredients are grown without the use of pesticides, herbicides, and insecticides, all of which can pollute and damage their environment and get into your products. “Natural” ingredients may be natural, but if they are grown with agricultural chemicals, they can end up in your products, as well as pollute their soils and land. Yuck.
    3. Organic farming can greatly reduce the use of fossil fuels since its practices don't use agricultural chemicals, which can account for over half of on-farm energy use. Organic farming practices like crop diversity, nutrient replacement, and water conservation lead to healthier soil and land. Worms everywhere love organic farmers!
    4. There is no industry definition of “natural,” and many products claiming such a distinction often contain less than 1% of ingredients derived from nature, while the other 99% are synthetic, petroleum-based chemicals. In fact, the natural products industry specifically allows synthetic preservatives, fragrances, and detergents in their “natural” products. Hmm.
    5. The term “organic” does not mean anything, either, without formal certification. The world's most stringent organic certification process remains the USDA's National Organic Program (NOP). LEAP uses Oregon Tilth to certify its organic ingredients and processes in accordance with the USDA's guidelines. An organic ingredient that is certified organic by the USDA NOP guidelines is the gold standard. No ifs, ands, or buts about it.

    About LEAP Organics
    Where does the name LEAP come from and does it stand for anything?
    Even though “LEAP” is in all capital letters, it doesn't stand for anything. Sure, they could make something up like Lovely Environmentally Aware People. Wait a minute, that actually sounds like it fits. But, in all reality, it comes from the concepts of “making the leap” and “leaping forward.” The idea for LEAP was to take skincare products to the next level in terms of purity and effectiveness and to take a company to the next level in terms of sustainability. In order to do this they had to take…a leap of faith. Ok, that was a little cheesy, but you get the picture.

    Philosophies for Sustainability Overview

    Product Philosophy
    First and foremost LEAP only uses ingredients that come from nature. No synthetics, no parabens, no petroleum, no sulfates, no GMOs, no chemicals of any kind. Simply put - no bad stuff. LEAP's goal is to use all certified-organic ingredients (using USDA National Organic Program standards). Being a sustainable company means using sustainable ingredients that maintain the integrity of the land and the purity of the products. In addition, they source fair-trade ingredients when possible, they never test on animals, and they proudly list every ingredient they use on their labels and website.

    Packaging Philosophy
    If there were bad “p” words, “packaging” would be one of them. But since they need to use it, LEAP Organics tries to use the most sustainable packaging available to them – while using the least amount possible – that allows them to safely and effectively deliver their products. LEAP's goal is to use 100% recycled, recyclable, and/or renewable materials that have the lowest carbon footprint and the best sustainable waste option for the end-consumer. Bottom-line: lower the impact of the “p” word.

    People Philosophy
    LEAP Organics people philosophy is fairly simple: work with curious, philanthropic, and creative people who know how to get things done. Then give them the encouragement to be curious, the flexibility to be creative, and the opportunity to be philanthropic. Most importantly, work with nice people and treat customers as friends they simply have yet to meet.

    Philanthropy Philosophy
    In addition to making good products, being able to give something back to charitable causes that have meaning to them is why they started LEAP, and they will donate a minimum of 3% of their annual revenues to global environmental non-profits.

    It's always felt like the right thing to do as a community partner, plus it helps to provide some context around why they “work.” When they're up at 1am researching new ingredients and packing boxes and writing emails, there needs to be somewhat of a “higher calling” to support all of that work. Besides, if that karma thing ends up really working, they'd rather be on the good side of things.

    LEAP Organics are members of 1% for the Planet, an alliance of businesses that donate at least 1% of their annual revenues to environmental non-profits worldwide. However, LEAP challenged themselves to make a larger commitment and will donate a minimum of 3% of their annual revenues to global environmental non-profits focused on the health, conservation, and stewardship of the environment. It's an aggressive campaign, but they believe in the groups they support and want to do their part to help where they can.

    In 2010, they partnered with Clean Air-Cool Planet, Trees For The Future, and The Student Conservation Association.  Each of these non-profits all have one thing in common – they encourage their communities' young people to take an active role in helping to preserve and to protect their environment.

    Product Philosophy
    Much of a company's impact on the world comes from the ingredients it uses, so LEAP Organics is a big stickler on the ingredients they use and what goes into their products. Their goal is to use all certified organic ingredients (using USDA National Organic Program standards), and in those cases where a non-certified organic must be used, it must still be sourced from nature.

    Resource Philosophy
    LEAP Organics biggest guilt as a company is that they use the Earth's resources, and that really bugs them. So, they built LEAP from the ground up using renewable energy and zero waste principles, and they are constantly trying to push the company towards having the smallest carbon footprint as possible.

    True Profitability Philosophy
    At the end of the day, every company needs profits to survive, and LEAP Organics is no different. Gasp! Yup, that's right, they do have some capitalistic blood flowing through them, but it's not the only reason they're in business. They simply measure profits using more than just dollars.

    Suggested Use
    Lather, rinse, and repeat.
