Favorite Friday #4: Apple Valley Natural Soap

Maybe the first question here is: why bother with natural soap?
Soap and laundry detergent were two of the things we changed when we began this journey to all-things-natural-and-real. As an infant, our daughter would frequently get huge, I mean HUGE red, raised hives all over her body. I eventually narrowed down the culprits to about 3 or 4 things, two of which were laundry detergent and soap.

What is natural soap?
Natural soap has no artificial coloring, fragrances, and nothing synthetic like SLS, triclosan or parabens (just to name a few).

Since soap was one of the first things we changed, I've tried a LOT. And there are a lot of good ones. People who make all-natural soap are usually very proud of their products and work very hard to use only quality ingredients. That translates into quality soap.

But, I do have a FAVORITE.

Apple Valley Natural Soap.
I honestly can't even give a detailed explanation about why it's my favorite. I just know it is.
For one though, I love the scents. Sometimes natural products can have very strong, harsh scents, and theirs are not. They're just a little lighter than others I've tried. I just like it.

They even have something for your man. No reason your hubby should be stinky with this bar around ;)

I also know that they only use 100% natural ingredients and I don't have to worry about anything being in this soap that might hurt my daughters skin.It's not unusual to find hand made soap that is all natural, except for synthetic fragrances, and those sometimes give us trouble.

And here's the greatest part: Apple Valley Natural Soap is handmade by a home-educating family who are committed to honoring Christ in their work. Read more about them HERE. I'm more than happy to support that kind of business!!

Lucky me, I have a cousin who lives by this amazing family and can get me their great soap on a regular basis. But, for those who don't have such a convenient connection, they have a fabulous little website: www.applevalleynaturalsoap.com

Check them out and make sure you try a bar of my all-time favorite - Grapefruit Peppermint Luffa :)
