Apple Valley Natural Soap {& Super Giveaway}



There is something special about soap that is handmade...

It is healthier for you and the quality in incomparable, the difference you feel on your skin is a matter of night and day! Apple Valley Natural Soap is a family run business that sells these types of soaps. Their homemade soaps are 100% percent natural using the highest quality ingredients of buttermilk, coconut milk, goat milk, rhassoul clay, yogurt, aloe vera, oatmeal, essential oils, organic herbs and spices, vegetable juices, clays and much more.


 I was blessed to be able to try several of their soaps--they smell amazing, lather great and they last wonderfully long. This is because they are cured for six weeks and not the average of four which makes it healthier for you because doing so makes the water evaporate.

Many times specialty soaps are very expensive--if you or a child have a skin condition you know what I'm talking about!  Apple Valley Natural Soaps are very affordable, starting as low as $2.50!


They also sell vanilla sugar body polish, all natural bug repellents, soothing herbal salves, soap trays, organic jojoba hair, and body serum, gift and travel kits and...

     LIP Balms! I *love* the Almond Joy balm---it is the best and glides on SOOOOOO smooth!!! It keeps lips super soft and smells like chocolate--yum!


    A few points of interest:
    1) all of their labels are from recycled materials that are eco-friendly,
    2) all shipping is a flat rate of $6 no matter what size order and
    3) 10% of all profits go to our local, Christ-centered Crisis Pregnancy Center.



    Now for the man in your life--they have the Man 2.O which is a shampoo, body AND shaving bar all in one!
    (Wow!) And for all you camping enthusiasts, did you know they even have Camping Shampoo and Body bar? Just in time for camping season!

    65. The Butter lotion bar looks really good! I play harp, so I can't get most lotions on my hands. If it has alcohol in the first 6 ingredients I can't put it on my hands, with a bar I don't have to get it on my hands to use it! YAY!

      P.S. The reason I can't use lotion on my hands is cause it gets rid of my calluses and I NEED NEED NEED those!

    105. Can't wait to compare Apple Valley products to thewonderful natural soap I just purchased from another company. I'd love it if it lasted longer than my current one. I also look forward to comparing the shampoo bars to a name brand B***'* B***, which didn't work well for me at all. How great it would be to lose all those bottles in the shower :)
      Hope the Camping Bar is still available when I am able to purchase more.

      THIS IS NOT AN ENTRY. I ALREADY ENTERED AS MANY TIMES AS I QUALIFIED FOR PER YOUR INSTRUCTIONS.
