How are Glory B's soaps made? Glory Bars are made using the Cold Process method, which combines fatty acids and sodium hydroxide (oil and lye) to trigger the saponification process.
What ingredients are in Glory B's soaps? All Glory Bars are ethically made from natural and organic materials sourced from ISO and organic-certified wholesalers that also commit to quality and sustainability. Glory Bars are “bastille” soaps because 70% of each bar consists of extra virgin olive oil. Olive oil is extremely gentle, making it perfect for delicate or sensitive skin. All Glory Bars consist of the same proprietary blend of base oils and butters, and contain:
Therapeutic-grade essential oils
100% pure base oils, butters, and waxes
Organic ingredients whenever possible
Recyclable and reusable packaging
No synthetic fragrances or colorants
How much do Glory Bars weigh? Every Glory Bar exceeds five ounces in weight. However, just like we, as individuals are unique, each Glory Bar is as well. Glory Bars are handmade, hand poured, and hand cut. For that reason, you may find inconsistencies between bars.
What is the purpose of the river rock/soap stone in the Glory Jar Serenity Kits? Each Glory Jar Serenity Kit comes with a SerenitySoap Stone–a polished river rock, engraved with the soap’s “name”. They are intended to be used much like prayer or worry stones–encouraging relaxation and a sense of calm, while encouraging you to focus on the present moment and any prayer, meditation, or affirmation you choose to either anchor the values you currently have, or cultivate the ones you want to strengthen.
Why did Glory B's choose to support the charities listed on the site? To ensure we support ethical charities, we went to Charity Navigator. Founded in 2001, Charity Navigator is the nation's largest and most-used evaluator of charities. Their team of professional analysts have examined tens of thousands of non-profit financial documents, and they have used this knowledge to develop an unbiased, objective, numbers-based rating system to assess over 8,000 worthy, charities. The ones supported by Glory B's consistently receive high ratings.
Where does Glory B's get its reclaimed wood? We scavenge local antique shops and purchase from reliable and green timber companies who commit to quality and sustainability.
