The Heartwood of a tree is its main support and is fortified by its continual growth. My Heartwood Collection combines color and fragrance, both natural and synthetic, with design to create handcrafted soaps that are both beautiful and functional. These high quality soaps are free of paraben, phthalate, detergents, sulfates, propylene glycol, and formaldehyde. Only responsibly sourced palm oil is used, when indicated as an ingredient, and the naturally occurring glycerine has NOT been removed. My products are not tested on animals, nor do I willingly source ingredients that have been tested on animals.
