About Lin's Vegan Soap.
Lin's Vegan Soap is a one-woman, home-based soap operation founded in 2018.
Each soap is handcrafted with care. I am passionate about creative techniques and unique designs. My business is also an extension of my respect for the environment, so I avoid any plastic packaging and use fair trade, unrefined raw shea butter.
ABOUT THE PRODUCT:
* Artisanal Vegan Soap:
Artisanal Vegan Soaps are my primary product. I use natural ingredients and refrain from any plastic packaging so as to reduce waste. I have bar soaps, soaps with loofah, soap-on-a-rope, and soap-on-a-rope with loofah. More than 90% of them are 100% essential oil soaps and all are phthalate free, SLS free and SLES free. I also make PALM FREE soaps in light of the palm oil crisis. I have soaps for all ages, including gentle bars for the newborn. I choose fragrances carefully and I love to introduce new designs every week so the variety of my products remains considerable - always more than 30 different selections!
* Artisanal Vegan Shampoo Bar:
My shampoo bar contains nurturing essential oil which is great for healthy, clean hair and scalp. And it smells phenomenal! Whats more, by using Lin’s biodegradable, package-free shampoo you are helping to reduce waste.
Why bar soap is better than liquid soap ?
"Most liquid body washes contain petroleum, while many traditional bar soaps are made of saponified animal fat and plant oils. Liquid soaps need the addition of emulsifying agents and stabilizers to maintain their consistency. Although these chemicals may have been approved by the relevant authorities for use on humans, the testing procedures do not include the consequence of long term use or interactions between these and the myriad of other chemicals in our environment.
"For example, diethanolamine (DEA) is commonly added to confer a creamy texture and foaming action. It inhibits in baby mice the absorption of choline (not to be confused with chlorine), which is an essential nutrient necessary for brain development and maintenance. High concentrations of DEA were also found to induce body and organ weight changes, and mild blood, liver, kidney and testicular systemic toxicity in mice. A 2009 study also found that DEA is potentially toxic for aquatic species."
Liquid soap has a bigger environmental footprint than bar soap—at least 25 percent. Liquid soap requires plastic bottles and their pumps, which lead the typical user to extrude six or seven times as much soap by weight as the ornery. And how about their plastic bottles? We don't need more plastic bottles in this world!
