Aren't all handmade soaps the same? . . .
The answer is NO!

NO! Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve
does not use raw materials that contain
Genetically Modified Organisms (GMOs).
Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve is a USDA Certified Organic company.
We are required to submit documentation that ALL of our ingredients, even our "non-organic ingredients," were produced without the use GMOs.
Since the U.S. National Organics Program forbids the use of genetic modification in products to be certified as organic, purchasing organic is a great way to lower your exposure to GMO’s.
Genetically Modified Organisms refers to any animal, plant or microorganism that has been changed in a lab at the gene level. It is also known as “genetic engineering."
The Short Answer
NO! Adding antibacterial chemicals to soap does not keep your family safe from germs.
I understand why folks (especially those with children) are choosing products labeled “Antibacterial,” hoping to keep their family safe in the war against germs.
"Consumers may think antibacterial washes are more effective at preventing the spread of germs, but we have no scientific evidence that they are any better than plain soap and water," said Janet Woodcock, M.D., director of the FDA’s Center for Drug Evaluation and Research (CDER). “In fact, some data suggests that antibacterial ingredients may do more harm than good over the long-term.”
Simply washing your hands with old-fashioned natural soap and water rids your skin of most fungi, bacteria, and viruses. Soap does not kill germs, it surrounds them and carries them away.
The Long Answer
Please read our blog: Antibacterials: More Harm Than Good!
Chagrin Valley Soaps Are Made Using Natural Ingredients and Are Biodegradable!
What Does Biodegradable Mean?
By definition, biodegradable means capable of being broken down by the action of living things, like natural bacteria, into simple substances that are not harmful to the environment.
If You Are A Camper Or Backpacker, Please Read On...
There are many soap makers out there with good intentions who are claiming that their biodegradable soap or shampoo is safe to use in rivers and streams.
Even biodegradable soap can eventually pollute lakes and streams if it is not used sparingly.
The bacteria that break down soap are present mostly in soil. That means that when you wash, please be sure that your soapy rinse water ends up in the soil away from fresh water sources like lakes, rivers, and streams.
The answer is, YES!
Chagrin Valley Soap & Salve is a USDA Certified Organic company.

- We want our customers to know that when we say "organic," we mean it.

- So we choose to be a certified organic company and abide by the strict standards required for organic certification.
Hey Sam, thank you for the help with the favors. We had tables of 8 people and i bought a small plant and placed all of the colored bags around the plant--it made a wowy colorful centerpiece--got lots of compliments too. I added a lip balm to each and it was great favor. So nice to give out something that was useful and natural too! My sister is on her honeymoon and now I need a vacation. Allison, Colorado
Just wanted to thank you for the soap favor pouches. I made name tags and attached them to bags and used them as name place settings for my daughters bridal shower. We got lots of compliments because they were so unique and smelled so lovely. What a great idea. Stephanie, Texas
