Vegan soap-making companies in Philadelphia offer natural products for the environmentally conscious
For many soap makers, there is concern over using palm oil in their products. The vegetable oil is linked to environmental issues such as climate change, deforestation and animal cruelty. To combat this concern, vegan soap companies, which make soap that doesn’t come from animal fat and is not animal-tested, are becoming more popular. Vegan soap, compared to store-bought soap that contains tallow—animal fat— is generally handmade, gentler to your skin and uses plant-based oils, such as olive oil, coconut oil and almond oil. Those opting to use vegan soap recognize that vegan soap makers put thought into using specific ingredients to produce quality products. Here’s a list of four vegan soap companies in Philadelphia you can try for yourself.
