** We've moved! Please visit our new online shop to see all of our Editions of BirdProject Soap + all of our new Matter Goods! http://shop.matternola.com/ **
Each black, bird shaped soap contains a white, ceramic bird, handmade by moi from Louisiana Clay, which remains as a keepsake once the outer soap has washed away.
Through the daily act of washing, you will eventually free the clean, white, ceramic birds inside - potent symbols of restoration and recovery. The soap is shaped to be cradled in your hand and is a powerful representation of all creatures affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Disaster.
~ BirdProject Soap is a thoughtful gift which gives to many.
The soaps are made with natural, locally sourced ingredients: biodiesel glycerin, fair trade olive oil, aloe, activated black charcoal, and a light cypress scent - reminiscent of Louisianan bayous. They are made by Emily Manger Davis of Sweet Olive Soaps, a third generation soapmaker from New Orleans.
50% of profits go to environmental cleanup and care for affected animals of the BP Deepwater Horizon Oil Spill Disaster. [Gulf Restoration Network & IBRRC] $18,000 donated and counting, thanks to all of your wonderful support!!
* If in New Orleans, happy to arrange pickup & refund shipping!
* More about our amazing soaps! They are all natural [they contain no shea butter and no animal products - I've received many thank you's for that from those that are allergic] and are really wonderful for your skin. The soap is great for all skin types and is not drying for daily use.
The historical Rigaud Cypress scent was founded in Paris in 1850 and is delightful to both women and men.
** I've also received so many letters that this pretty handsoap beats out other soaps in the house for removing tough stains or dirt on your hands. Even stubborn paint, tree sap, & crawfish boil residue!
