Gentle Eco-Friendly Soaps, Deodorants, & More come from Vermont Soapworks
Nestled in the lush green mountainscape near Middlebury, Vermont Soapworks is in the business of making unique, natural soaps and cleaners that are healthy for people and the planet. Dedicated to environmentally aware personal care, they make liquid Castile soaps out of organic coconut, olive, and jojoba oils, along with a range of extracts, essential oils, and aloe vera. They also diversify their product range into foaming hand soaps, handmade bar soaps, organic deodorants, foot care products, green cleaners, aromatherapy air fresheners, and more.
Great Scents & Special Skin Formulas set Vermont Soapworks Products Apart
Just as the ingredient list of Vermont Soapworks soaps is full of organic ingredients, the scents they use are all-natural for greater wholesomeness, too. Their popular scents include lemongrass, patchouli, lavender, sweetgrass, woodsy, peppermint, tea tree, and sweet orange. They also design formulas specially for oily, dry, ordinary, and sensitive skin so that everyone can find a soap suited to them. The products are all tested on human volunteers, not animals, making them fully cruelty-free. They’re also made in the USA and GMO-free.
Better Health for People & the Planet is Vermont Soapworks’ Guiding Goal
Vermont Soapworks, or “Soap for the People,” got its start back in 1984 with its first natural, healthy soaps. Today, it’s a leader not only in making safe, nature-based soaps and cleaners, but in environmental and social responsibility, too. It’s part of the 1% For The Planet program, pledging 1% of its profits (at minimum) to environmental restoration and preservation projects. They use hydroelectric power to run their plant, despite the local availability of much cheaper natural gas from fracking. And they support women’s soapmaking cooperatives in Ghana, Guinea, and Liberia.
