Galiano Island Soapworks
Galiano Island Soap Works studio and store on Trincomali Farms is located on Galiano Island, first stop in the Gulf Islands from Mainland Vancouver Canada. Trincomali Farms is one of Galiano Island’s largest working farms and is also an animal rescue sanctuary. Many of the ingredients that go into our products are grown right here. We strive to derive the goods we make from the environment we live in – respectfully and sustainably. We are committed to researching and using organic natural raw ingredients in our products. Most of our products contain the common stinging nettle (Urtica Dioica) because we believe nettle is an essential ingredient for youthful healthy skin and we have an abundance of it! Some of the other local ingredients we use are lavender, wildcraft chamomile, mint, comfrey, sea buckthorn leaves, rosemary, eucalyptus leaves and honey. Part of the fun is in the discovery and development phase - sourcing and using ingredients we know are healthy choices. If you can’t eat it – don’t put it on your skin! We care about our global village and the people who work hard to create the ingredients we use and can't grow on the farm. We believe in and support fair trade wherever it is an option. We are committed to the well being of our fellow creatures and not only do we not use ingredients that have been tested on animals, we test our own products only on our human friends. We are proud to have been certified by the Leaping Bunny Program. We hope you can feel the level of our commitment and dedication when you use our products – that somehow the love of what we do is transferred to you. Because beauty should not cost the earth….
