I have to admit a bit of a clean freak, which may have something to do with being a mom, so I end up washing my hands (and everything I touch) a million times a day! Since I spend a lot of time with soap, I love exploring different scents and ingredients, and even packaging. I was thrilled to discover that one of my favorite brands, Kiss My Face, has come out with an all-purpose Peace Soap, which follows the same philosophy as their skincare line of using the finest and gentlest 100% natural ingredients. It’s made with organic olive, coconut, and jojoba oils, so it takes care of your hands while eliminating germs. The simple formulation is biodegradable, environmentally friendly and good for cleaning just about anything! Grassy Mint is my favorite scent, which is simultaneously refreshing and a touch earthy and in the mornings, and it’s the first thing that wakes me up (besides a crying baby!). The other soaps are delightful too, and remind me of scents you’d find at a wellness spa- Lemongrass Clary Sage, Lavender Mandarin, and Pomegranate Acai. I know the soap is good when hubby voluntarily pipes up about how much he likes that it cleans well and is concentrated and efficient!
The brightly-colored Peace soap collection is not only great for the home, but will capture your heart: 10% of the proceeds of the Kiss My Face Peace Soap go to Seeds of Peace, an organization aimed at empowering youth from areas of conflict from all over the world, giving them the necessary leadership and communication skills to ensure a future filled with peace. “The Seeds of Peace’s internationally recognized program model begins at its summer Camp in Maine and continues through programming in regions around the world with innovative initiatives in the form of conferences, regional workshops, educational and professional opportunities, and an adult educators program. This comprehensive system allows participants to develop empathy, respect, and confidence as well as leadership, communication and negotiation skills — all critical components that will facilitate peaceful coexistence for the next generation.” Wash your hands and save the world!
