We're an eco-friendly micro business located near Austin, TX, family owned and operated since 1995. Our mission is to provide truly natural body care products handmade with real ingredients that are safe for all living things and a joy to use while raising awareness of the many benefits of using responsibly wild-crafted and organically grown botanicals. 1% of our profits are donated each year to the Lady Bird Johnson Wildflower Center and
Clean the World.
Our truly natural products are handmade in the USA, biodegradable, cruelty free, minimally packaged
with recycled & recyclable materials, and do not contain synthetic fragrance oils,
petroleum products, FD&C dyes, parabens,
phthalates, sodium lauryl or laureth sulfates, antibacterial triclosan,
TEA, or other harmful chemicals. All of our base oils are certified
organic. The organic palm oil we use is from Columbia and is RSPO certified as well as Rain Forest Alliance certified. We try to be mindful of every purchase we make
and strive to support fair trade, organic, and sustainable businesses
A Wild Soap Bar earned Green America's top Gold Certified Business Seal by being committed to protecting people and planet. We re-use all the packaging materials we receive, purchase only biodegradable packing peanuts, keep printed materials and product packaging to a minimum, use FSC certified 30% PCW cardboard soap boxes, avoid the use of plastic packaging when possible, recycle all paper and plastic generated, and re-use cloth rags for daily clean up rather than disposable paper towels. Our employees earn living wages, enjoy employer paid health insurance, and are free to set their own hours as necessary. We maintain a natural wildlife habitat on our rural property, garden organically, and contribute to the local community throughout the year.
