"The best personal care products to buy are those being made in the USA (locally if possible) by small, independently owned companies in the natural products sector, but yes you still have to look at labels." **
Since anyone can use the word "natural" while having a product that contains synthetics and chemicals, please see "Natural versus Organic" page on this website, for definitions of "Natural" "Organic" and "Synthetic".
Our products are handcrafted, simple, pure, and safe for body & face. Our soap is created using the cold process method. It is moisturizing, but not oily, and lightly scented with combinations of essential oils and/or fragrance oils.
All of 5280's products have a minimum 12 month shelf life, unless otherwise noted.
We have handcrafted creams, lotions, whipped body butters, lip balms, foot & body scrubs, facial scrubs, and other products for the bath such as bath melts, soaks, and even a shower soak for a wonderful aromatherapy showering experience! All of our skin care products are formulated with great care to ensure that they are loaded with good skin-loving ingredients without the use of synthetics, chemicals, etc. that are used in most retail skin-care products.
We currently have many different creams, lotions and whipped butters and we are always at work on new products, so keep checking back to see our newest creations! We don't have a standard recipe for our creams, lotions or whipped butters although almost all of them will include either sweet almond oil and/or avocado oil, shea butter or cocoa butter, and natural vitamin E, for all the skin-loving benefits, vitamins and antioxidants they offer. As you will see on the "Ingredients We Use and Why We Use Them" page there is a multitude of wonderful oils, butters, extracts, and other additives especially good for many different skin conditions; dry skin, oily skin, problem skin, sensitive skin, mature skin, and many more.
Our facial creams are made by special order only.
All our products are colored with natural herbs, spices, oxides, ultramarines, clays or powders; no synthetic dyes are used.
We try to use only essential oils in all our skin care products, but please check out the ingredient list to be sure. Some customers have requested certain "scents" that cannot be duplicated with essential oils. All the fragrance oils we use have been guaranteed by our supplier to be phthalate free.
We started out using mostly fragrance oils (phthalate-free) in our soap because some essential oils don't behave well in cold-process soap-making; and they tend to lose their fragrance within a few weeks. There are exceptions to every rule, however, so we do have a few soaps that are made with essential oils and we are continuously working toward our goal of formulating soaps using only essential oils.
For soap we start with a basic recipe of olive oil, coconut oil, palm (RSPO sustainable) oil, castor oil and a little Shea butter. To this oil blend we add different oils and exotic butters, which complement the new products we are working on. All our soaps are "super-fatted" - made with extra oils and butters to ensure retention of the exceptional skin-loving properties those extra oils and butters offer. Other additives like clays, coffee, oatmeal, poppy seed, jojoba beads, and other exfoliates; avocado, carrot, cocoa, pumpkin, and other fresh ingredients may be used.
Cold-processed soaps need to cure for 4-6 weeks. We cut our soap by hand and while we are a little straight line challenged, we try to do our best to measure and cut carefully and evenly. Due to the handmade nature of the soaps, each bar may vary slightly from those pictured.
Currently, we have five product lines of soap and we are adding a sixth. We are also considering expanding our liquid soap line, so let us know what you think.
Classic Soaps: These soaps are the tried and true soaps recipes that we started with and are still best sellers today. They usually contain fragrance oils and possibly some pigments (no synthetic dyes). Fragrance oils are synthetic, but the fragrance oils we use are phthalate-free.
Milk Soaps: We like to use only raw milks to maintain the
excellent nutrients for the skin that are abundant in the natural,
unpasteurized, and un-homogenized milks. Therefore, currently we make all
of our own organic almond milk, organic coconut milk, organic flax seed milk,
and organic rice milk. We purchase raw cows milk and goats milk, and we
make the goat milk kefir.
Our milk soaps are made with all natural, simple ingredients such as coconut oil, olive oil, sweet almond oil, cocoa butter, shea butter, mango butter, and essential oils, which have therapeutic applications.
Simple (All Natural) Soaps: are made with organic or natural oils & butters, organic additives, natural colorants (no synthetic dyes), and essential oils, such as the facial blend of essential oils in our green clay facial soap, which have therapeutic applications.
Silk Soaps: our newest line of soap is made with the addition of cruelty-free silk. The addition of silk creates soap with a shiny appearance, a phenomenal silky lather, a silky cushiony glide, and a general luxurious "silky" feeling to it. You will definitely notice the unique qualities of this soap.
Liquid Soaps: We have formulated a limited product line based on requests from clients for liquid shower soaps/gels and a liquid veggie & fruit wash. This line of soap is one that we are considering expanding.
Allergy Warning: If you have allergies, please read our Allergy Warnings.
