All of the soaps not only looked gorgeous, but they smelled delicious! I really wanted one of each! What I purchased was the Oatmeal Mint, which you can see below. Each of the soaps, no matter which you chose, were weighed for you at the check-out register, and were US $1.39 per oz. I purchased the humungous hunk that is pictured with the sign in it (my total was $17.44).
The Artisan Soaps are currently only available from select retailers or a special order directly from Hugo Naturals. Their website is currently being redesigned to include more information on their Artisan Program. The new website should be launching any day now, so watch for that!
Debra and Hugo Saavedra founded Hugo Naturals in 2006. Their mission statement: “Our passion is to enhance people’s lives by making the safest, most natural and luxurious body care available.”
They succeeded by creating natural personal care products that are luxurious without the use of petro chemicals, parabens, artificial fragrance or colors, sulfates, or phenoxyethanol The entire line is Vegan, Gluten-free, Soy-free, and Cruelty-free. The certification for gluten-free is by the Celiac Sprue Association, the largest Celiac organization in the U.S. They’re certified cruelty-free by the Coalition for Consumer Information on Ingredients (LeapingBunny.org), the organization that I have written in detail about in yesterday’s post.
The Hugo Naturals oatmeal mint soap that I purchased gives a great moisturizing lather, and has an amazing scent due to the use of 100% natural essential oils and botanical extracts. Instead of using water or alcohols in their extracts, they use kosher vegetable glycerin as a base.
There are also no chemical preservatives used. They are all-natural!
