ALTR creates handmade bar soaps with local, wildcrafted botanicals. They seek to elevate (put on an altar) the mundane task of washing oneself into a ritual of reconnecting to the land that sustains us. This is achieved by offering 100% natural products that use local plants and organic, vegan ingredients.
Each bar of Soap is hand crafted in Ontario, Canada.
Lavender & Honey -- Honey is incredibly healing, reducing blemishes and scarring over time. Lavender reduces the effects of nervous tension in body and mind, facilitating rest and recovery. This soap has been designed to be healing for people with sensitive or damaged skin.
Pine & Charcoal -- As an astringent, pine hardens proteins on the surface of the skin, preventing excessive oil from accumulating in the pores upon drying. Charcoal’s meso porous structure allows it to absorb several hundred times its own weight in impurities. This is our strongest, most deeply cleansing soap.
Plantago Major -- The allantoin in plantain softly conditions skin by regenerating tissue. The menthol in mint cools the muscles and the essential oil stimulates the mind. This soap has been designed to be gently up lifting.
Red Oak & Black Walnut --Juglone from Black Walnut and the tannins from Red Oak are both very effective antimicrobial agents that leave your skin smooth and clean.
Sage & Sea Salt -- The health of your plants starts with the quality of your soil. Our organic potting blends are made with 100% natural amendments selected with quality in mind to make sure your plants will thrive.
Spruce & Rose -- Spruce is an effective disinfectant that is great for relieving aches and pains in bones and muscles. Rose is a famous anti-inflammatory and analgesic.
Yarrow & Calendula -- Calendula is a wonderful anti-inflammatory agent and muscle relaxant. The achilleine in Yarrow reduces anxiety. This bar has been designed to be psychologically and physiologically soothing.
