Pure Essential Oils
The only scents that make sense are natural ones. That's why Indigo Wild uses pure essential oils in all their soaps. Zum Bars take the therapeutic elements of essential oils beyond the shower so you can feel as good as you smell.
Indigo Wild's milky way is the silkiest way. Soothing, soft, and oh so moisturizing, goat's milk boasts a pH so naturally close to your skin that it's gentle enough for the most sensitive bodies.
Zum Bar Goat's Milk Soap – Barhemian Rhapsody
The shower is a stage and the Zum Bar Goat's Milk Soap is a pure essential oil protégé that plays the 33-hit wonders, from classics like Frankincense & Myrrh, to pop faves like Sandalwood-Citrus, to the mashup Patchouli-Orange. They’re whammy bars with a goat’s milk backbeat. Why goat’s milk? It’s a cover band for your skin with a nearly identical pH balance. Never leaves you too dry or too oily. Just perfect harmony.

Why Goat's Milk?
Why? Because goats milk is very good and never ba-ha-ha-ha-had. Goat's milk, the main ingredient in Indigo Wild Zum Bars, is naturally ultra-moisturizing, naturally balanced for the skin, and naturally homogenized. (So in case you happen to have a pet goat, you could truly drink the milk straight from the teat. But that would make you creepy and it might freak out your goat.)
The truth is, goat's milk is probably the absolute best mix of "good for you" and "good for nature." Unlike commercial soap, goat's milk soap contains capric, caprylic and capronic acids, and the naturally occurring triglycerides. Otherwise known as good fats. These good fats in goat's milk result in a pH level so close to the pH level of your own skin, it helps to moisturize and keep your skin's oils in balance.
Goat's milk has a pH level that's as near to skin as a pair of faux leather pants. A pH level that's well balanced for healthy human hair and skin, while commercial soap can dry out the skin to the point at which it feels taut and itchy. The oil glands are forced to counteract, overproducing oils in an attempt to rebalance the pH of the skin. The result can be oily skin, clogged pores, blackheads and yuck – pimples.
Goat's milk offers an alphabet soup of vitamins. With its restorative vitamins, minerals and proteins, goat's milk soap simply maintains the balance. And no worries for people who have allergies to usual dairy products or sensitive skin.
Naturally-occurring glycerin. Another benefit to using Zum Bar Goat's Milk Soap is the presence of naturally-occurring glycerin. Since Indigo Wild uses a cold-processed method, they do not add extra heat which maintains the integrity of the goat's milk, food grade olive, coconut, palm and castor oils and 100% pure essential oils. In the process of saponification, reactions between all of these ingredients produce the soap and a natural byproduct, super-moisturizing glycerin. Many big soap companies remove the glycerin and sell it for extra profit, but not Indigo Wild! It's called glycerin, not glycerout. Glycerin is a natural moisturizer and a humectant, which help to pull impurities from your skin's pores and leave it moisturized, healed and protected.
Three letters: W-O-W. This could be more than you ever wanted to know about goat's milk, but Indigo Wild thinks the point is worth milking.

Their people were born to be Indigo Wild. And – guilty as charged – every one of them is a true nature's child. They've banded together to thump and bump the rock and soul into every batch of Zum Bars, Glows, Rubs, Kisses, and more. Individually, their peeps are virtuosos who are oh-so major to helping the ingredients sing. But together, they're fusicians who ensure the holistic is always greater than the Zum of its parts.
They make Indigo Wild's stuff rock, balancing the rhythm that forms the backbone: goat's milk, soy wax, jojoba oil, shea butter, argan oil, dragon's blood. They add stuff like meadowfoam seed oil, rosehip oil, and botanical extracts for bass vibes you can feel. Then they bring out the 100% pure essential oils to lay down a melody that hits the high notes.
Causes Indigo Wild Supports
At Indigo Wild, they love dogs and hate breast cancer. Many of their own pups are rescues, and they are active in Kansas City Sheltie Rescue. They like Zum Mutts and they cannot lie. Small ones, big ones, fat ones, skinny ones. Old, young, hairy, bald mutts and pure breeds. Their place runneth over with the dogs they love, and that’s why they have teamed up with Kansas City Sheltie Rescue. For each Y.U.M. Bar sold, they donate $1.00 to Kansas City Sheltie Rescue, a non-profit Sheltie Rescue Corporation that rescues and searches for great “fur-ever” homes for Shelties in the Greater Kansas City area.
They also have some cancer fighters in their ranks, and Indigo Wild is working with some great local charities to support cancer warriors. The Betsy line is named in honor of Indigo Wild's own Zum Chick, Besty Medina, who Van Dammed cancer more than 14 years ago. Today she is cancer free, but thousands of people still need support.
Indigo Wild created the Betsy line to give back to both breast cancer patients and survivors. $1.00 for every Betsy Bar sold is donated to Turning Point: The Center for Hope and Healing, a program that provides empowerment and transformation of the mind, body, and spirit of individuals living with serious or chronic illnesses. 25% of sales of every Betsy Body go to Back in the Swing, a non-profit organization that supports healthy and proactive living for breast cancer survivors.
Indigo Wild has a chi factory in the Crossroads of Kansas City. A place where their process is more like recess - sans monkey bars, tether balls and jungle gyms. A place where they can skip to my Lou and bust out the juju. A place that is laced with sage blessings from ceiling to floor, mixing room to front door. And rest assured, you'll find that no machines are harmed in the making of their products.
No Dirty Words
There are handful of ingredients Indigo Wild simply avoids when it comes to handmaking their products. They're not just dirty, they're downright disgusting. Indigo Wild don't and will never use the following ingredients:
No Animal Tallow
Animal Tallow or Sodium Tallowate, comes from rendered animal fat. Many rendering companies get their animal lard from road kill.
No Cocamidopropyl Betaine
Cocamidopropyl Betaine is a surfactant, giving detergents their manufactured cleansing and lathering properties. It is a known irritant to skin, eyes and lungs. Plus, it has been shown it can be carcinogenic.
No Sulfates or Sodium Lauryl Sulfate (SLS)
Sulfates/Sodium lauryl sulfate and its extended family are used in products as an inexpensive foaming agent. It's an eye and skin irritant, and products containing laureth chemicals have been found to contain levels of 1,4 dioxan, which the EPA has classified as a carcinogen.
No Petroleum By-Products or Mineral Oil
Petroleum by-products and mineral oil are by-products of the distillation of gasoline from oil. It coats skin like plastic, clogging pores and interfering with the skin's ability to eliminate toxins. It slows cell development and skin function. You'll find this inexpensive ingredient in a lot of baby products and lotions.
Phthalates are used in perfumes and beauty products to make fragrance last longer. It interferes with the endocrine system, which regulates your body's growth, metabolism and sexual development and function.
Triclosan is an antibacterial, antifungal chemical used in many consumer products. Studies by the FDA show it may contribute to bacteria resistance to antibiotics and alters hormone regulations. It is registered as a pesticide with the EPA.
Parabens are chemical preservatives found in many body care products and cosmetics. They are linked to breast cancer as they have been found in breast cancer tumors and they mimic estrogen, a hormone known to aid in the development of breast cancer.
No Artificial Colors
Artificial colors labeled as FD&C and believed to be cancer causing agents.
No Propylene Glycol
Propylene glycol, a chemical derived from natural gas that acts as a penetration enhancer. It can alter the structure of skin by allowing chemicals to penetrate your skin and increase likelihood chemicals will enter the bloodstream.
No Chemical Sunscreens
Chemical sunscreens absorb in the skin, thus also absorbing the harmful UV light and can cause skin damage, irritation and increase risk of cancer.
DEA/TEA a chemical wetting agent and emulsifier for shampoos, lotions and creams. They can react with ingredients in cosmetic formulas to form NDEA, a potent carcinogen. NDEA is readily absorbed through the skin and has been linked with stomach, esophagus, liver and bladder cancers.
No PEGS OR PPGS
PEGs or PPGs are synthetic ingredients processed with ethylene oxide which is associated with reproductive effects, central nervous system depression and is an EPA classified carcinogen.
No Tetrasodium Edta
Tetrasodium EDTA, a preservative made with carcinogens, formaldehyde and sodium cyanide. It's a penetration enhancer so it breaks down the skin's protective barrier absorbing in the blood stream.
No Diazolidinyl Urea
Diazolidinyl Urea, a preservative that acts as a formaldehyde releaser in body care products. Formaldehyde is classified as a human carcinogen by the EPA.
No Benzoyl Peroxide
Benzoyl Peroxide, an antibacterial used in topical medications designed to treat skin conditions, however it is a skin, eye and respiratory irritant. It has also been linked to cancer and tumor growth.
Resorcinol, a hazardous chemical commonly found in hair dye and varous skin treatments. It is restricted in federal government buildings and has been shown to cause thyroid dysfunction, effects on the central nervous system, and alterations in the adrenal glands of animals.
Hydroquinone is a skin lightener used in many whitening creams to reduce dark spots. However, it permanently alters skin's pigment while also weakening the elastin and collagen wherever it is used. It is considered cytotoxic (toxic to cells) and mutagenic.
No Methylsothiazolinine (MIT)
MIT is an antibacterial preservative that has been shown to contain neurotoxic properties. Studies have concluded that MIT can cause brain cell damage, increased risk of seizures and visual abnormalities.
Oxybenzone is an active ingredient in many sunscreen products. It has been linked to hormone disruption and in hormone-related cancers in men and women.
