Goodness Soaps Founding Information
Goodness Soaps was started in 2015 by Jennifer Dimitriu, a graduate of Oregon State University college of science. She holds a B.S in General Science with a chemistry minor. She chose to start a natural skincare company because it seemed like there should be natural products with a more fun style.
How is Goodness Soaps unique?
Goodness Soaps offers something better: handcrafted, truly premium soaps, lotions, bath bombs, and facial scrubs that are made from scratch in beautiful colors and designs. We also back community fundraisers using our products as a fundraising tool for causes you care about.
These skincare products are formulated from premium oils like: avocado, virgin coconut oil, sunflower, olive, macadamia, kukui, red raspberry seed, pumpkin seed, black seed, meadowfoam, apricot kernal, red raspberry seed oil, rosehip seed oil, sea buckthorn oil....and more! Our products are all natural with the exception of a few that are made with a scent oi rather than essential oil.
The fatty acid profiles of each new product are analyzed to ensure your skin is being fed every time it is washed, and that is why you glow when you use goodness soaps. No artificial foaming chemicals are used in our recipes, because they are not needed to get big, luscious bubbles and thick foam when the right combination of base oils are used. That means our soap does not dry your skin. Your skin will look and feel bright and hydrated after you use Goodness Soaps products.
You have likely been using soaps that contain artificial foaming enhancers, which dry the skin and cause redness (sodium laureth sulfate-for example). These commercial soaps also have skin-loving natural gylcerin stripped away. Goodness Soaps gives you the best of everything nature can provide without adding any skin damaging chemical additives and without removing helpful natural moisturizers.
Location and Sales
Goodness Soaps is now located in Davidson, North Carolina. We only sell online or through representatives who own their own location (such as day-spas and small shops). We also participate in fundraisers where community members may sell to their communities in person.
Goodness Soaps regularly gives to charities by making soaps dedicated to the cause, or sometimes participating in fundraisers for schools and other non-profit groups. we currently have a fundraiser going through February 2018 to help Baker Prairie Middle School students pay for an educational trip abroad.

Vegan and sustainability concerns
: We use palm oil in our soaps. All of our palm oil comes from Crafter's Choice brand, and is sustainably sourced. Crafter's choice palm oil comes strictly from members of the Roundtable on Sustainable Palm Oil (RSPO)
. RSPO certification requires producers to follow strict standards to cultivate sustainable palm oil. RSPO criteria states, "no primary forests or areas which contain significant concentrations of biodiversity (e.g. endangered species) or fragile ecosystems, or areas which are fundamental to meeting basic or traditional cultural needs of local communities (high conservation value areas), can be cleared
.” Additionally there are standards that require fair treatment of workers according to local and international labor rights standards.
All Natural.Vegan Friendly
All products are Vegan friendly, cruelty free, and all natural with the exception of a few that contain an artificial scent oil.
