In order to produce such quality and certified organic products, Botanie Soap uses only the most natural ingredients. All of our fragrances are pure essential oils (plant extracts); our colorants are herbs; and our preservatives are plant extracts. Our company uses no synthetic fragrances, colorants, or preservatives in any of our soaps. In addition, our base oil blend is a combination of certified organic coconut oil, palm fruit oil, sunflower oil and safflower oil. In 2009 we began working directly with an organic farmer here in Montana to provide our safflower oil, and we are proud to know the farmer directly.
