Because we try our best to use only earth friendly ingredients, and focus on simplicity and sustainability , we are discontinuing the use of babassu oil in our beer soap. After continued research on soaping oils we have found that babassu oil is, in fact, part of the palm oil family and we are concerned about the negative effects improper and irresponsible harvesting practices might have on the rainforest.
Although we only used a very small amount, we believe that these small efforts matter a lot. As they say, "Its not easy being green".
This recipe adjustment will not effect the quality of Hop Hollow soap in any way and we know you will continue to LOVE using our awesome beer soap.
If you have any questions about Hop Hollow soaps, our process or ingredients, please never hesitate to contact us.
Thank You and have a hoppy day. : )
As mid January rolls in and we start preparing for our year number 2, I can’t help but look back on all that 2017 brought to Hop Hollow and feel so thankful to everyone that has helped along the way. I can’t put into words my gratitude to everyone that has supported our healthy beer soap work.
During our first full year making beer soap we got to visit so many exceptional breweries, both long time friends and up and coming neighbors. Not only am I excited about all of the REALLY good beer but the dedication these breweries have to making a meaningful impact on their community is truly outstanding.
In 2017 our beloved beer businesses worked to raise awareness of local history and charitable causes, donated to veterans, community organizations, shelters, promoted works of local musicians, artists and artisans, hosted charitable events, just to name a few of the many, many philanthropic gestures.
It is also noteworthy to mention that in 2017 you could visit your local brewery to participate in a yoga class, trivia night, macramé class, painting, terrarium making, family feud game night, and even some winter sledding. THANK YOU FOR ALL YOU DO !!
Looking forward to 2018, I am excited to continue to create new, healthy beer soaps and offer a small step towards big change for healthier skin and sustainable living.
Thanks for purchasing our Hop Hollow Beer Soap ! You'll love the way the hops and natural oils soften and soothe your skin.
As with all handmade, natural soap, it's important that you keep your soap in a dish or tray that keeps the soap elevated above the bottom of the dish, allowing the water to drain and the air to circulate and dry your soap.
