ALTR Soap - Pine + Charcoal
Locally wildcrafted pine comes together with charcoal to refresh and purify. As an astringent, pine hardens proteins on the surface of the skin, preventing excessive oil from accumulating in the pores upon drying. Charcoal’s meso porous structure allows it to absorb several hundred times its own weight in impurities. This soap has been designed to be deeply cleansing.
Ingredients: organic olive oil, organic coconut oil, organic shea butter, avocado oil, sodium hydroxide, organic castor oil, pine infusion, charcoal, pine essential oil, cedar essential oil, vetiver essential oil, lime essential oil.
ALTR creates handmade bar soap with wildcrafted botanicals local to their Ontario, Canada base. They seek to change popular soap culture (i.e., alter) by offering products that showcase local plants, and, in this way, elevate (i.e., put on an altar) the seemingly mundane task of washing oneself into a ritual reconnection to the land that sustains us.
All of the main botanical elements are grown or responsibly wildcrafted by ALTR and then brewed into a nourishing infusion that acts as a base for each bar.
ALTR soap is 100% natural, made with organic ingredients, palm oil free, and vegan. They make each product with great care and hope that their soap will inspire people to reincorporate the natural world back into their daily rituals.
