We are incredibly excited to offer these lovely, cold-processed bar soaps. Made with pure natural fats, each soap forms a rich lather that leaves the skin feeling restored and refreshed. Hand-wrapped with patterned paper and stamped labels, the soap's minimal packaging also helps reduce our reliance on plastic.
Materials: Essential oils, shea butter, and saponified oils of olive, coconut, and castor.
Scent: Goat milk allows for a creamy, soothing soap, perfect for hydrating dry gardener's hands. The basil oil is peppery and sweet, with a hint of anise.
Origin: Esperance, New York
Striking a balance between purposeful work and enriching experiences, Saipua's New-York-based artist collective informs a world of wild beauty. Meaning 'soap' in Finnish (a nod to their family heritage,) Saipua is made up of two parts; Sarah Ryhanen's naturalist community and a decadent small batch soap brand made by her mother, Susan Ryhanen. Deeply anchored in family and sense of place, in 2011, Sarah founded The Farm at Worlds End, a small-scale diversified homestead farm on 107 acres of ancient Mohawk land. Merging aspects of productive market gardening with permaculture design, it is first and foremost a home to several artists, gardeners, writers, and a modest heard of Icelandic sheep. As Saipua grows and shifts, one thing stays the same; they remain dedicated to creating a greater possibility of equity, beauty, justice, sovereignty, and collective ownership—naturally.
