This year Santa was good to me and brought these Anders Natural Soaps, which I just love. The company is based in Raleigh, North Carolina and has been around since 1999. The soaps are made with extra virgin olive oil instead of pomice olive oil and are made of 100% biodegradable ingredients. All soaps are vegetable based, but for you vegans out there, be aware that they do use honey and goat’s milk in some of their some of the soaps, and beeswax in their lip balm. Other wholesome ingredients include kelp, oatmeal, and stone ground grits. Yum! They come in wonderful flavors like rosemary mint, and, my favorite, Kristen’s pear berry soap. They even have soaps to clean your four-legged friends, like the urban dog soap, which I use on my devil dog.
But don’t stop there, Anders Natural Soaps has expanded to include aromatherapy candles, dead sea salt scrubs, shea butter products, lotions and soap dishes to hold your new soaps. For more information, you can visit them online at
