ALTR Handmade Soaps
ALTR creates hand-made bar soap with local, wildcrafted botanicals. They seek to change popular soap culture (i.e., alter) by offering products that showcase local plants, and, in this way, elevate (i.e., put on an altar) the seemingly mundane task of washing oneself into a ritual reconnection to the land that sustains us.
All of the main botanical elements are grown or responsibly wildcrafted and then brewed into a nourishing infusion that acts as a base for each bar.
The soap is 100% natural, made with organic ingredients, palm oil free and vegan. All products are made with great care and hope that our soap will inspire people to take care of themselves and reincorporate the natural world back into their daily rituals.
ALTR Handmade Soaps are available in the following varieties:
Lavender & Honey: Honey is incredibly healing, reducing blemishes and scarring over time. Lavender reduces the effects of nervous tension in body and mind, facilitating rest and recovery. This soap has been designed to be healing for people with sensitive or damaged skin.
Sage & Sea Salt: Calming to the mind, sage helps restore peace to your system. Sea salt balances oil production in the skin. This soap has been designed to be mentally and physiologically grounding.
Pine & Charcoal: As an astringent, pine hardens proteins on the surface of the skin, preventing excessive oil from accumulating in the pores upon drying. Charcoal’s meso porous structure allows it to absorb several hundred times its own weight in impurities. This is our strongest, most deeply cleansing soap.
Plantago Major (originally named Plantain): The allantoin in plantain softly conditions skin by regenerating tissue. The menthol in mint cools the muscles and the essential oil stimulates the mind. This soap has been designed to be gently up lifting.
Spruce & Rose: Spruce is an effective disinfectant that is great for relieving aches and pains in bones and muscles. Rose is a famous anti-inflammatory and analgesic. This soap has been designed to be refreshing and palliative.
