we make the best soap.
we use old school cold process saponification to craft all roots apothecary soap. saponification is actually the only way to make soap by definition.
aside from using real soap making methods, we don't use detergents in any of our products. this means our soap won't irritate your skin and cause itchiness or dryness. synthetic free skin is happy skin.
synthetics can be irritating and cause chronic inflammatory issues that can deteriorate skin health. we only use natural oils, salts, minerals and plant based micro nutrients that you can recognize and pronounce. our formulas are based on the biology of optimizing fundamental skin health.
healthy skin. happy skin.
Natural Soaps aren't necessarily super exciting, but they're something we use daily (or pretty close to it). Most "soaps" are heavily formulated with synthetic chemicals that can cause legitimate skin conditions over time. Take a look at the ingredients of most soap on the market (mass produced or handmade). Notice all the unpronounceable chemicals? Similar to you not being able pronounce many of the ingredients, your skin doesn't know either. Your skin is less chill than you are, when it comes to synthetic ingredients. When a chemical is not fully recognized as friendly, it's often treated as a toxin and the inflammation process is triggered. Inflammation on a daily basis from soaps, lotions and other synthetic products can cause annoying chronic inflammatory problems. Don't want to end up with wrinkled, weak, diseased skin? Reduce inflammation. It's super simple.
It's the small things that set us apart from other soap companies. Our packaging is made from 100% recycled and biodegradable material.
I personally really enjoy this soap and feel like it has therapeutic effects. I was able to clear up a small area that the doctor thinks may be eczema—probably caused by exposure to mold. I know there are other soaps on the market with similar ingredients but these feel like they are working to actually detox the skin. In addition, they are not drying and my skin looks healthy.
Love the bar soap, I will never go back to Dove.
The loofah soap is amazing, nothing compares to it!! The Roots team is just as amazing! It is truly a joy to shop at the Colorado Springs location! Every product I use from the deodorants to the tinctures to the teas are unbeatable!!
Been using this soap for a few months. I e gotten rid of all the liquid soaps that I used to use. Smells great!
