Why Bones'? Because you give a HOOT!
...About your skin, lowering your chemical consumption, your footprint and the planet as a whole. Bones' Soap Co. is taking steps to make our products plastic free, wrapped in double use and beautiful packaging. Soaps are wrapped in a biodegradable vellum paper, salves are poured in tins that once the product is gone can then take on a new life to hold little bits, baubles, pills or buttons.
Bones' Soap Co. was created to fill a need in our family. A need for simpler products without tons of chemicals so that skin can do what it is designed to do. That is protect us from the elements. When skin is irritated, dry or lacking nutrients it can't do its job as well. Thankfully others have enjoyed the benefits of Bones' and spread the word of their happy skin. Our family has grown and now the products are available to the world online!
Every ingredient is chosen for skin health. Oatmeal proteins to calm and heal afflicted skin. Shea to soften over-worked skin. Eucalyptus to help you breathe. Peppermint to ease pain and lemongrass to cleanse. Each essential oil affects not only your mood but has a benefit when used topically. Be it a soap, salve, scrub or balm from Bones', know that your purchase has been thoughtfully made to bring only good things start to finish. Any questions or concerns that may arise can be sent to and we'll do everything in our power to make it right.
OATMEAL SOAP BASE:
This is our good 'ol stand by, most used and super beneficial to skin. With oat protein, coconut oil and other goodies it ia a great starting place for us to add essential oils and scents.
- Oatmeal Shea Soap Base -
Vegetable Glycerin (moisturizer), Water, Sodium Palmate (saponifying agent), Sodium Palm Kernelate (cleansing), Sorbitol (prevents moisture loss), Butyrospermum Parkii (Shea butter), Ground Oatmeal (skin conditioner, exfoliator), Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Palm Acid (foaming agent), Palm Kernel Acid (cleansing), Sodium Citrate (ph balance), Titanium Dioxide (mineral whitener), Pentasodium Pentetate (preservative), Tetrasodium Etidronate (preservative).
*Vegetable glycerine over time attracts moisture, while this holds the moisture against skin which is good, it also creates "glycerine dew" on an unused bar of soap. It is simply the result of the ingredient doing its job too well, if you happen to find it unsightly keep your soap in a dry environment such as on a soap rest (featured in SHOP ALL) that allows air to reach all sides between uses.

Bones soap is made with the best natural ingredients. The smell and the silkiness of the soap, makes me feel clean and not dry my skin. Love this soap.

“Tattoo Shop” is my absolute fave! Great for sensitive skin, soothing, smells amazing, and doesn’t leave skin feeling sticky after using like other handmade soaps! Such incredible products - I’d recommend to anyone!! If you haven’t tried Bones’ Soap, you’re missing out!

These gentle cleansing soaps make your skin unbelievably soft. I love how it rinses clean without the usual residue left from name brand bars. Bones’ Soap is a great natural product!

***Note: While our current base soap includes palm oil we are looking for a recipe without this unnecessary ingredient. Though it is used as a stabilizer and extends shelf life we can not sit back and watch its negative environmental effects with a clear conscience. Stand by and keep checking in while we find a recipe that betters everyone’s experience on the planet rather than do harm. Just as we must evolve our products will continue to improve with the life of the company and your input on future direction is always appreciated. We will continue to strive to reduce our footprint and better our use of resources, will you join us on this quest?***
