Sustainable, vegan & palm oil free essentials for a clean life + a clean conscience.
That’s our motto here at Hand in Hand Soap. We believe that it is not only important to find the best, plant based ingredients that are good for your skin, but also for the environment. ‘Cause we know you want to kick it on Mother Earth for a while longer. So do we.
Scroll down to learn more about what is and is not in our products:
Palm Oil Free: We do not use any palm oil or palm oil derivatives in our ingredients.
Socially Responsible: For every product purchased, one bar of soap + one month of clean water is donated to a child in need.
Vegan + Cruelty Free: Our products are all 100% vegan and never tested on animals.
Environmentally Friendly: We are mindful of the environment in all we do, from sourcing and harvesting ingredients to our recyclable packaging.
Natural Ingredients: Ingredients derived from nature, the way Mother Earth intended.
Made in the USA: All of our products are made in the United States.
Paraben Free: Parabens are a common type of preservative used in personal care products. But not here babes! We make sure our products are preserved naturally, so you can keep on enjoying them, worry free.
Gluten Free: Gluten is a protein found in wheat, rye, barley and triticale, acting like a glue that holds food together. Why does it need to be in your personal care products then?! Answer is, it totally doesn’t, so we totally leave it out of our products.
Phthalate Free: Phthalates are multifunctional chemicals that help to maintain the shape and stability of plastics and can be found in many cosmetic and personal care products. But who needs more chemicals? Not you, that’s for sure! So we didn’t use this stuff because it’s like super bad for you, causing damage to the liver, kidneys, lungs and reproductive system. No thank you!
BHT Free: A nasty preservative that can sneak into fragrances. Smells fishy, huh? We thought so too, so all of our proprietary scents are made without this stuff, leaving you with only the good smelling stuff! Sniff Sniff.
SLS/SLES Free: Sodium Lauryl Sulfate and its derivatives are a common additive that allows cleansing products to foam. They've been linked to cancer, neurotoxicity, organ toxicity, skin irritation and endocrine disruption. Yikes! Rest assured, you will get all the suds you need to get squeaky clean without these sinister stinkers!
EDTA Free: Can you say Ethylenediaminetetraacetic acid ten times fast? Neither could we. This nasty chemical irritant belongs in a spelling bee, not on your skin!
PEGs Free: Polyethylene Glycol act as emulsifiers to bind water and oil-based ingredients. It also has a bad rep as a petroleum by-product that reduces the skin's natural moisture, and can even increase signs of aging. We left PEGs behind, so you can put your freshest self forward.
Petrochemical Free: Petrochemicals are ingredients derived from petroleum. Think oil…yuck! These bad guys are commonly found in lotions and scrubs, but we make sure to leave them out and replace them with good-for-you ingredients like shea + cocoa butters.
Palm Oil Free: The palm industry is one of the most detrimental to our environment. It is a leading cause of rainforest degradation, global warming and the displacement of indigenous people and endangered species. Since we started in 2011, we have avoided this ingredient in all of our products, a step most in our industry have not taken. Sleep easy knowing you are doing your small part for Mother Earth by avoiding this harmful ingredient!
Cruelty Free: We love all of our furry friends and never test any of our products on them. The only guinea pigs we use are ourselves!
Vegan: Totally ahead of the trend, we have never made products with animal derived ingredients. And why would we?! Mother nature gave us enough ingredients to last a lifetime.
Fair Trade Ingredients: Simply put, fair trade means sustainable, ethical trade that puts people + planet first. Ingredients are harvested in environmentally friendly ways and workers are empowered by better conditions & wages. Look for an asterisk to find our Fair Trade ingredients on each product page!
