Why Honest Bars?

My Story

Soap is in my blood. Five generations of soap making began with my great great-grandmother, who would extract fragrances and oils from the local plants and herbs of her surroundings to produce cleansing products for her community in Silver City, New Mexico. Her knowledge and craftsmanship were passed down each generation for well over a century until finally reaching me. In recent years, I recognized my passion for creating skincare products that excited and satisfied those around me. Although making soap with the finest oils and butters had been in the family since the 1800s, I decided to dig a little deeper when developing my own unique line of bath and body products. Born with vitiligo and a plethora of allergies, I formulated skin products that were not only safe for sensitive skin but for all skin types because I want my products to be enjoyed by everyone. Not only are my premium ingredients of the finest quality, but they are also ethically sourced and kind to the environment. My shea and cocoa butter that give my products their luxurious feel would not be possible without the hardworking families overseas. Every dollar I spend on importing these products is given back to the families who produce them. None of my ingredients are derived from animals, meaning my products are cruelty free and 100% vegan. Below you will find more information about each ingredient I use and why each one is essential to providing you with premium bath and body products of the highest quality.
