Vermont Soap Expands Organic Collection
By Grocery Headquarters Staff
Organic soap maker Vermont Soap has expanded its certified organic soap collection to include new scents for its Aromatherapy Air Fresheners, Castile Liquid Soaps, Foaming Hand Soaps and Bath and Shower Gels. Available now are: Citrus Sunrise, Lemongrass, Patchouli, Peppermint, Pine Woods, Sweetgrass, Sweet Orange, and Tea Tree Mint. “Our aromas are derived from pure essential oils that provide aromatherapy benefits for the mind and kills germs on the skin while altering the astringency of the soaps for different skin types,” says founder and president Larry Plesent. “We are in business to offer health conscious consumers a broad range of personal care, cleaning and disinfecting products that are guaranteed free of synthetic ingredients and are certainly healthier for them and for our planet." For more than two decades, Vermont Soap has been creating 100% natural and non-toxic alternatives to the chemical-based personal care products now in general use. Vermont Soap’s products are so natural they are certified to USDA organic food standards, company officials add. Organic personal care products are of special benefit to chemically sensitive and immune system impaired individuals who often react to laundry, dish and other common detergents and mass market formulations. All Vermont Soap products are available in an Unscented form for the most “scentsative” among us, officials add. All Vermont Soap products are free of artificial colors and fragrances, chemical preservatives, and animal by-products. They do not test on animals. Castile Liquid Soap offers a natural detergent alternative that cleans all water-safe surfaces - including skin. This versatile, all-purpose product can be used for laundry, dishes, kitchen appliances, bathrooms, carpets, stains, woodwork, floors, and virtually any other water-safe surface. It is also safe and effective to use on the hands and body, and can serve as a shampoo for oily hair. A quick pump of the convenient foamer bottle of Vermont Soap’s Foaming Hand Soap aerates organic liquid castile soap into a frothy handful of foam without the use of propellants or anti-microbials. What sets the Vermont Soap Bath and Shower Gel apart from its detergent-based competition is the innovative gel consistency created using natural vegetable gums and glycerin to thicken the proprietary mild soap base, officials say. Vermont Soap’s Aromatherapy Air Freshener offers a non-toxic way to freshen up and revitalize personal space at home, school, work, in cars, and any other environment that could use a pleasant and uplifting scent. Aromatherapy Air Fresheners can be safely sprayed into the air, on skin, fine linens and other fabrics and all water-safe surfaces. All Vermont Soap liquid, gel, foam and scent products are available in 8-ounce, 16-ounce and 1-gallon bottles as well as in 5-gallon self-dispensing cubetainers.
