"Where did the name come from you ask? Bones' Soap Co. was created to fill a need in our family. Early in our marriage my husband began suffering from Dermatographism, a skin affliction that causes violent rashes and welts from the lightest of scratches. In an attempt to lower our chemical consumption I began tinkering with soaps and salves. A need for simpler products without tons of chemicals or added fragrance, allowing skin to do what it is designed to do, drove the line.
His nickname in high school was Bones
and since the original soaps were made for him, the name stuck: Bones' soaps. Our skin is meant to protect us from the elements. When skin is irritated, dry or lacking nutrients it can't do its job as well. When it suffers, we suffer. Bones' soap is simply trying to alleviate common skin issues. 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!"
and because you give a hoot!
..about your skin, lowering your chemical consumption, your footprint and the planet as a whole. Bones' Soap Co. has taken every available consideration to make our products plastic free, wrapped in double use and beautiful packaging. Soaps are wrapped in a biodegradable glassine 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.
Each essential oil we use affects not only your mood but has a benefit when used topically. The psychotherapeutic aspect of scent is an incredibly interesting subject that deserves an entire discussion all its own. 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 firstname.lastname@example.org and we'll do everything in our power to answer your query.

*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.
*Essential oils should be approached with respect, do your research before using to avoid adverse reactions. Do not use if allergic to any of the above ingredients. All of our products are made on the same equipment, if one suffers from a severe allergy to any of our ingredients please refrain using Bones'. Every body is different and we cannot know your personal skin profile, it is up to you as the consumer to buy with care. We only wish good things for you and really do not want anyone to go into anaphylactic shock. For topical use only, do not ingest Bones’ soaps or salves.
Take your time and care for your skin. That flesh bag is the key to happiness and healthiness.
