Guest Post At Handmade Philly Blog

Two weekends ago I was given a pair of complimentary tickets to the Sugarloaf Festival in Oaks, PA, courtesy of Handmade Philly blog.  Check it out.
Coincidentally, Volta Organics was accepted to vend at the Sugarloaf Festival in Gaithersburg, MD from April 9-11.  If you're local, please come check us out!

Volta Organics

Volta Soap still makes soap but we are now Volta Organics, which we felt is more inclusive of the rest of our bath and body products.  We are currently making a push to have a large percentage of our products contain certified organic ingredients.  This means that in a couple of months, most of our base oils and all of our dried herbs will be certified organic.  Our biggest success is finding certified organic extra virgin olive oil, the most prevalent ingredient in almost all of our soaps.  The ingredients printed on our labels will be updated as we go to reflect that change.  As you already know, all of our essential oils are all-natural, steam distilled, and therapeutic grade.  Finally, we want to announce our membership with the Handcrafted SoapMakers Guild.  We are very excited to be a part of such a wonderful organization!

Soap, Drugs, & Rock and Roll

This is old news that I was recently reminded of. Dr. Bronner's makes great soap -- this is a fun video about what is and isn't soap. Enjoy.
