eMeadows soap is for consumers that value handcrafted soap made with the highest quality fair trade, organic and wild harvested ingredients. A lot of research and thought has gone into choosing who to purchase these ingredients from. We purchase from companies that are dedicated to providing sustainable livelihoods for their workers as well as producing their products practicing environmentally sustainable and natural methods past down through generations.
Two of the main ingredients of eMeadows soaps are Shea butter and Coconut oil. The Shea butter comes from Ghana, Africa and produced by women who work to support themselves and their families. The company is called Global Mamas. Fair Trade practices ensure that every Global Mama is paid a steady, living wage.

We also use the highest quality Coconut oil from Tropical Traditions. We opt to buy the Gold Label virgin coconut oil because it is handcrafted by family producers in the Philippines using traditional methods passed down from previous generations. Recent studies show that traditionally made coconut oils have the highest amounts of antioxidants. This coconut oil is made by hand, not machines.

Not only is it important to use a soap that is healthy for your skin, but one that does not pollute our environment with harmful chemicals when it goes down drain. You can be assured that eMeadows soap is made from the highest quality ingredients with no harmful chemicals and was purchased from companies that promote fairness to workers using sustainable environmental practices. It’s all connected…how we use our monetary resources, the human spirit, the environment and what we put on our skin.
