Pros: Vegan + too many to count
Cons: Not USDA certified organic
Evergreen Candleworks is an awesome company and their Silky Moisture Bars are hands down one of my favorite body care products.
Amazing body bars:
These vegan moisture bars work awesome as a wonderful moisturizing treatment. You can rub the bar into your skin to help moisturize dry areas and to make your skin smell amazing. Each bar is made of 100% vegetable wax, guaranteed! There are no beeswax or petroleum products hidden in it. The wax is FREE of pesticides, herbicides and Genetically Modified Material.
Linda, Evergreen owner, notes that the soy wax they use is made from organically grown soy beans and the fragrances are all natural plant oils. I've tried the following scents:
- Soft Amber
- Vanilla Pear
- Citrus Basil
- Brown Sugar & Fig
I LOVE these silky soy bars. Most of the time lotion bars are time consuming to put on, don’t seep into your skin right and can leave white marks on your clothing. These bars rock though. You rub the bar over your body – or break off a small piece, warm it in your hand then rub that on your body. Easy. The lotion bar melts into your skin and soothes and smooths dry skin.
The scents are amazing. I like Citrus Basil and Vanilla Pear best but also the Amber and Brown Sugar scents are addictive. Even the Wildflower scent is good - softly scented and clean like fresh cut roses, not fake perfume flowers. The scents linger but do not overpower your nose at all. The bars are not sticky and they don't leave any residue on your skin or clothing.
Best of all these bars are long lasting and very affordable.
This bar picks up a lot of lint, like all lotion bars do.If you hate scented items, you won't like the scents I tried, but they make an unscented version too. Also, while the company says they use organically grown soy, they're not certified.
Awesome company perks:
- Green, family-owned business.
- Make candles and other products handmade from all-natural soy wax.
- 100% wind power used to make candles.
- Bar containers are reusable and pretty.
- Reuse and recycle policies in place.
Overall, this is one of the coolest, most affordable vegan body care products I've ever tried and I totally adore them. I ran them by many friends who also loved them.
