Hugo Naturals Handcrafted Bar Soap Refreshing Vanilla Peppermint isn't just soap: It’s a luxurious, natural skin conditioner in a bar.

Frequently Asked Questions
What does Hugo Naturals Cruelty-free certification mean?
Hugo Naturals is certified cruelty-free by the Leaping Bunny which is a program run by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Cosmetics (CCIC). Products bearing the Leaping Bunny symbol are certified “cruelty-free” under the internationally recognized Humane Cosmetics or Humane Household Products Standards. These rigorous standards stipulate that no animal testing is conducted or commissioned for finished products or ingredients in any phase of product development by the company, its laboratories or its suppliers after a fixed cut-off date.
As a result, Hugo Naturals cruelty-free certification means that they, as a company are bound to never test the final products on animals, nor use ingredients that have been tested on animals. They require all their suppliers to certify that the ingredients/raw materials they provide to them have not been tested on animals and they have a very strict policy with regards to that.
Hugo Naturals also does not sell their products in China or other countries that require imported personal care products be tested on animals. They refuse to sell to those markets until their laws on animal testing change. They are happy and proud to stand by their position, as their belief in cruelty-free products (and a cruelty-free world) is one of their core values.
Which of the Hugo Naturals products are gluten-free? Soy-free?
The only products that contain oats in their entire line are the Shea Butter & Oatmeal Bar Soap and the Oatmeal Mint Artisan-Bulk Soap. Both of these products have whole oats on the top surface that have been tested and certified gluten free. If your allergies are with wheat, the oats have not been cross contaminated. If you choose to incorporate oats, their soaps would be a good choice. The rest of Hugo Naturals entire product line is soy, oat and gluten-free, as well as vegan. As a matter of fact, they are certified by the Celiac Sprue Association, or CSA, which is the largest celiac support organization in the United States.
How does Hugo Naturals prevent their products from spoiling? Do they use preservatives?
One strategy Hugo Naturals employs is reducing the amount of water contained in their products. The water content of a product is a major factor in spoilage. Due to the low water content they are able to use all-natural preservatives such as Japanese Honeysuckle extract and rosemary extract. Many of their other ingredients have preservative properties as well. Essentially, they give you more for your money and in the process eliminate the need to use chemical preservatives.
How does Hugo Naturals scent their products?
The natural way! They use only 100% natural essential oils and botanical extracts. They do not use water or alcohols in their extracts, but instead use kosher vegetable glycerin as a base.
Does Hugo Naturals only use natural colors?
Yes. They quite literally searched the world looking for natural ingredients with colorful properties. They have discovered that they can use natural colorings from seeds, pulp, algae, chlorophyll, and other completely natural ingredients to produce vibrant colors without the potentially harmful side-effects of artificial ingredients.
