Crafting

The nature of how we make our products, what we call crafting,  is probably the most enjoyable experience to a soap maker.  Starting from nothing, selecting ingredients, mixing, watching, waiting and 'voila!' a beautifully hand-crafted soap bar.  It doesn't get much better than this.

 

Kind Selection.

A solid foundation.

Our company policy and the root of all things made by Black Jack must meet certain criteria we feel is utterly important for the sustainable growth of humankind, animals and this beautiful planet we share.  Everything we make is free of animal by-products, synthetic chemicals,  artificial colors, harmful fragrance, parabens, sulfates, phthalates, petroleum, and is 100% vegan, natural, cruelty-free, biodegradable, plant-based, gentle & effective.

Oils & Butters.

Starting from scratch.

We use organic plant oils & butter in formulation of all our soap bars.  We don't go for the cheapest, we go for the best and we never use premixed "soap bases".  You'll be able to feel the difference at first use of any of our finely crafted soap bars and wonder how you ever bathed with anything else.

 

Essential Oils.

Plant properties.

With a degree in horticulture held by one of our soap company founders, we understand why you would only ever want essential plant oils (EO's) of herbs, flowers, woods and fruits to scent a product that you use daily and goes over your entire body.  The benefit of EO's are timeless and are a wonderful reason to use natural body care.  Beware of the synthetic fragrance.

 

Herbs & Extras.

The finishing touch.

For additional scent, texture, color or nourishment we add a combination of herbs, spices, fruits, minerals, clays and/or meals to our bars.  Some we grow, some we're gifted and some we purchase.  Some are certified organic and some are wild-crafted.  Everything is smelled & held to insure freshness & quality.
