My Philosophy

I'm a firm believer that everyone should have fabulous skin and everyone's skin should feel fabulous. That something as simple as soap and other bodycare products should be well...simple and unadulterated and luxurious all at the

same time.

And I think we should be able to achieve that goal without the use of toxic chemicals, chemicals that not only damage our precious planet but ultimately us too.
With that goal in mind, I've  searched the world over to find the most natural (organic if possible), environmentally conscientious, eco-friendly, sustainable raw materials for use in my products. Most raw materials are sourced right here in the US.
 
And all of my finished products are 100% Made in the USA




My soaps do NOT contain:
  • Artificial Colors
  • Artificial Fragrances
  • Detergents
  • Preservatives
  • Petroleum Products
  • Palm Oil - UNsustainable
  • Parabens
  • Sodium Lauryl Sulfate

I use only...
cruelty free, non animal tested, vegan products.


Basic ingredients:  some of the wonderful oils and butters used in my soaps include...

  • ​Avocado oil -  rich in vitamins A, D, and E, lecithin and amino acids; soothes and softens​

  • ​Sweet almond oil - soothes and nourishes dry skin

  • ​Cocoa butter - softens and moisturizes the skin​

  • Olive Oil - olive oil can help moisturize dry skin

  • Coconut Oil ​- skin softener, anti-aging

  • Mango butter - soothes, moisturizes and protects​

  • Hemp Oilslows down the aging process of skin, fights psoriasis

  • Soybean Oilprotects skin from UV rays, repairs damage

  • Sunflower oil - contains vitamin E,

         moisturizes​

  • Shea Butter - rich in fatty acids and vitamins A and E; heals, soothes and protects skin​​



I no longer use Palm Oil due to the destruction of orangutan habitats, when I did, I only used sustainable palm oil, certified and designated as CSPO.  But even "sustainable" palm oil is causing destruction.

A Helping Hand....

I am a firm believer in a strong community by helping to pay it forward or giving back, whenever and wherever you can. And not just once a year but all the time, everyday, all year.

 

And I believe all life is viable and should be treated with dignity and respect, regardless of it's start, path or species. And I have an especially soft spot in my heart for the furry four-legged ones.

 

Louvieve donates a portion of it's net proceeds to local animal rescues and NO KILL Shelters from the sale of our Sham-Pooch Bars and our All In bars (see S.O.S below). These proceeds, while not a king's ransom, will help to buy much needed supplies, food and medicines, along with helping to support the all important spay neuter programs.

 

Louvieve has also created the Save Our Skin (snipets of soap) program or S.O.S as I like to call it. What are snipets of soap you ask? It's the bits and pieces leftover after making our regular runs of soap. These bits and pieces are combined together and then made into our All In full size bars that are donated to battered woman's shelters. S.O.S is a win-win...nothing goes to waste and the women at these shelters get to pamper their skin with amazing scented good for your skin soaps...what a great way to start each day! A portion of the proceeds from the sale of these bars are also donated to No Kill animal shelters.
