The journey from tradition to today…
From the remote mountains of Italy, my grandmothers made soap from left-over lard (animal fat) and olive oil.
Inspired by the need to be creative and self-sufficient, the process I use originates from an era where nothing was wasted and there was an innate respect for end to end produce.
My ancestors blended large quantities of lard, used olive oil and sodium carbonate. This mixture took the form of soap. The soap was then poured into moulds, left to cure and then shared throughout the village in proportion to the amount of fat contributed to the production.
In Australia I continue this legacy, harnessing my ancestors knowledge in unison with my own. I use the least amount of ingredients needed to create my products, as I believe that your skin does not need to process unnecessary chemicals.
We do not store any of our products in plastic, nor do we use plastic in our packaging.
