I had the pleasure of sampling two bars of soap from Dragonfly Soap. Dragonfly Soap boasts that they are a green American (small) business that neither creates nor disposes of anything hazardous from their workshop. They strive to be planet-friendly with their handmade soap. They do not mass manufacture their products, they actually handcraft them! This is still not terribly common to find nowadays.
Also - and I think this part is really neat - all leftover slivers and end cuts of bars of soap are all recycled. Nothing gets thrown away. The company donates the bigger end cuts to charities or gives them as gifts to customers. The shavings from the trimmed edges of the bars are made into soap balls and sold or given to kids with instructions on how to make their own soap balls or soap on a rope.
For my soap scents, I chose Jasmine and Tangerine Moisturizer Bar Soap. I used them each on separate occasions. They both smell very good, yet not overpowering. Both soaps had a nice lather. The Jasmine soap smells very indulgent and romantic. The Tangerine Moisturizer Bar left my skin feeling softer and, it too was accompanied by a delightful, yet slightly more subtle, aroma.
I don't know about you but I like it when my products have ingredients I can pronounce.
Jasmine ingredients: Saponified oils of olive, coconut, palm and shea butter. Scented with jasmine fragrance oil.
Tangerine ingredients: Saponified oils of olive, coconut, palm, wheat germ, macadamia, cocoa and shea butters. Tumeric and paprika added for color. Scented with tangerine, orange, and litsea essential oils. Sodium lactate added for hardness.
Dragonfly Soaps cater to every "taste" with soaps with scents like Forest Floor Soap that smells woodsy, Exotic Earth Soap fragrant with patchouli, amber and vanilla; Garden Lavender Soap that customers claim keeps bugs at bay; Shaving Soap (for men or women); Lemongrass Gardener's Scrub Soap to cleanse and soften hands and feet; Triple Chocolate Mint Soap; Old Fashioned Lavender Soap; Baby Soap or Baby Your Skin Soap with no added fragrance... So many to choose from - lots that I didn't mention here.
