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 do not test on animals and to our knowledge, none of our ingredients are tested on animals. We try to be mindful of every purchase we make and strive to support fair trade, organic, and sustainable businesses whenever possible.

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 recyclable cardboard soap boxes, avoid the use of plastic packaging when possible, recycle all paper, metal, glass 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, walk or bike to work, 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.
