Clean Up Your Act

"If cleanliness is next to godliness, you’re in need of a little religion. Your path to enlightenment: Biggs & Featherbelle all-natural handmade soaps.

The cleverly named, colorful bars are chockful of interesting ingredients like cleansing pink kaolin clay, exfoliating adzuki beans, and cedarwood essential oil (a natural astringent). What’s missing? Synthetic fragrances, dyes, and additives. (Who needs ’em?)

For smoother skin, try Barbados, a bright orange-yellow bar made with pore-tightening grape seed oil and toning pink grapefruit. Be a bathing beauty with the eucalyptus- and sea salt-infused Beach Bar. Their bestseller is the lavender Momma Bar (made as a gift to the founder’s mother), which moisturizes without clogging pores.

The soap’s creators, fueled by an interest in alternative medicine, designed their products to nourish and heal. For you, that’s a small miracle."
