From El Salvador: Shuchil Soaps

Screen Shot 2015-06-17 at 12.27.20 PMHandmade and fairly traded from El Salvador, this Lemongrass soap is 100% certified organic. It’s made with organic coconut oil, lemongrass essential oil and it’s free preservatives and fragrances.

I have to admit at the beginning the scent can be a little overwhelming, but after a while you start to really get used to it and really enjoy it.

Overall this is a lovely all-natural soap!! It moisturizes while providing nourishing exfoliation, It lathers well and the bar is a good size, so it’ll last you a while.

In San Salvador, Matilde Carillo de Palomo uses traditional Mayan recipes to create herbal soaps that soothe the body and quiet the mind. Matilde learned her craft from her father, an herbalist who spent decades studying the properties of local flora.

The company prides itself on hiring women from rural areas and paying them fair wages for the first time in their lives.

Shuchil Soap’s products have been given a Certified Organic designation in the United States, Germany, and Asia, and a recent grant from the Humane Society of the United States will allow a new line of organic pet shampoos to garner a USDA Certified Humane stamp.
