Sage & Sea Salt: Finely ground sea salt is combined with an infusion of wildcrafted sage to create a cleansing and mineral rich bar.
Pine & Charcoal: Locally wildcrafted pine comes together with charcoal to refresh and purify.
Spruce & Rose: Black Spruce and Rose are gathered and dried to create this fresh and relaxing smelling soap.
Red Oak & Black Walnut: Ground Black Walnut husks are paired with Red Oak bark to create a powerful, deeply cleansing soap that is both smokey and woodsy.
Lavender & Honey: Lavender tea is made from locally harvested sprigs, and then honey is mixed in too, just before saponification. Honey is incredibly healing, reducing blemishes and scarring over time.
Yarrow & Calendula: Calendula is a wonderful anti-inflammatory agent and muscle relaxant. This bar has no added essential oils to keep it gentle for pregnant and nursing mamas and babies.
ALTR creates hand-made bar soap with local, wildcrafted botanicals. We seek to change popular soap culture (i.e., alter) by offering products that showcase local plants, and, in this way, elevate (i.e., put on an altar) the seemingly mundane task of washing oneself into a ritual reconnection to the land that sustains us.
All of the main botanical elements are grown or responsibly wildcrafted by us and then brewed into a nourishing infusion that acts as a base for each bar.
Our soap is 100% natural, made with organic ingredients, palm oil free and vegan. We make each product with great care and hope that our soap will inspire people to take care of themselves and reincorporate the natural world back into their daily rituals.
