Soap with a Simple Story

Janice Shade knows soap. A few years ago, she left her job at a leading natural cleaning products company, and set out on a mission to create a natural soap that also respected people’s budgets. Why? Because Janice knew that even the best eco-friendly product will have a limited impact if only a handful of people can afford to buy it. The result of Janice’s mission is True Body Soap. In honor of its five simple ingredients, here are five things that we think are great about it: 1. It’s priced 65% lower than the average natural bar soap. 2. It’s unscented, a boon for those with sensitive skin or fragrance allergies. 3. The packaging is made from 100% recycled material. 4. You get three to a package and three is better than one (or two!) 5. It lathers well and won’t melt away after a few uses. If you don’t want to choose between buying good natural products and meeting your budget, True Body Soap is the best soap for you (bar none).

    I tried the True soap bar last week and let's just say, it is now tried and true. I confess, I am a soap snob. It is the only time I word use the word 'snob' to describe myself. The True soap bar exceeded my expectations. It lathered beautifully, was delicate on my skin, rinsed off niciely and while it is scent free, you do smell clean afterwards. This bar of soap is revolutionary!

    Hello, I don't see the free offer for the soap! Then I was reading the others comments and found out it expired on Friday July 30,2010. Is it possiable you could still send a bar out for the late ones, I have been reading the Daily Grommet everyday and just got to your sight. Question is this soap good for children that has skin problems? I would love to try it out if possiable. Thank you so much to see that you are trying to help people with natural things, and the sight is so wonderful to read to. Christmas is just around the corner too. Please let me know if you can ship some soap to me. Thank you again.

    @ME - This soap has only five ingredients with no perfumes which is good for sensitive skin. You can ask your child's doctor if these ingredients would cause issues with your child's condition: Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Water, Vegetable Glycerine, and Sodium Citrate.

    Unfortunately, this offer expired at the end of July 2009. Thanks for posting, we are glad to have you exploring our site!
