Why is it different?
Animal fats are cheap but can clog pores. Chemicals hardeners will make the soap last longer but have odors which require high levels of fragrance to mask the odor. Chemicals are required to bleach or color the soap all those crazy colors like bright white, blue, green, and purple.
All of these chemicals strip the skin of natural oils and pollute your skin and the environment at the manufacturing facilities as well as the water treatment plants after soap use.
If you want purple soap with a really strong smell - we are not the company for you.
Why is everything in a solid form?
Liquid based products are often 70% water. Water adds weight to a product and to the shipping costs of that product. Liquid products also require a glass or plastic container. Not everyone will recycle those containers. We have tried to make our process and products as green as possible, in packaging you can compost.
Truly-Life does not test with animals or use animal ingredients. We do use beeswax in our lotion, perfume, and lip balm.
What can I do to live more GREEN?

Since 2008 we have had four items returned:
1. Bar of soap - it had the wrong label on it.
2. Bar of soap - it lost its scent after three years.
3. Lip balm - not in a plastic tube, paper tube "looked ugly".
4. Baby shower favors - the party was cancelled.
