a. Yes! All of our products; Hand Wash, Body Wash, Lotion, Bath Salts and Bar soaps are Gluten Free. However, all of our soaps are made in the same plant and between batches, the area is thoroughly cleaned, but we cannot completely guarantee no cross-contamination. We recommend testing a small area of the body.
a. The rich scents of One With Nature soaps come from pure essential oils or other 100% natural sources. We always seek to use distilled essential oils and, in some cases, we use blends of essential oils and natural fragrances to achieve richer and fuller aromas. In no case do we use perfumes or solvent extracted oils. For certain scents, such as coconut and apple, a distilled essential oil does not exist. To produce these scents, we have developed blends of naturally occurring plant scents that mimic the scent we are trying to achieve. Several of our products are fragrance free such as the Dead Sea Mud, Dead Sea Salt, and Olive Oil varieties.
a. The eye-catching colors of One With Nature result from a blend of plant and naturally-occurring mineral pigments. Many of these pigments are sourced locally in the diverse climate zones of Jordan. Examples include iron, magnesium, manganese, and apatite.
a. We use a natural preservative (Tocopherol), so we are not able to control the fading that occurs with natural pigments.
a. We do not use chemical compounds such as parabens, EDTA or BHT. Evidence of this can be seen in the very slight color variations between batches. We continuously innovate and improve our quality by using various blends of oils, anti-oxidants and citrus formulations to act as natural preservatives. One of these preservatives is phenoxyethanol (used in our liquid soap and lotion) can be derived from several different plant sources. Ours is food grade and is derived from sage essential oil.
a. Our products can be used from head-to-toe! We do recommend that you try a small area on your face to double check for any allergies that some people have to natural fragrances.
a. The Salt bar is smooth in texture, whereas the Mud bar with Sea silt, is more exfoliating. All of our products are going to be great for your skin. Whether you buy a soap with a smooth texture or an exfoliating soap is a matter of personal preference. Some customers like the highly exfoliating nature of the mud to make facial masks. All of our bars of soap contain Shea Butter and Argan Oil, but the fragrances differ.

a. We do not test on animals including raw ingredients and/or end products. We are a Leaping Bunny (CCIC) Certified Non Animal Cruelty Company. Thank you for your concern for all the living critters out there…. we share your concern!
a. You are correct that you used to be able to find our product in the Whole Foods Stores. However, as a compliment to our product, it sold so well that Whole Foods has decided that they would like to create their own brand of this unwrapped Dead Sea Mineral bar of soap, and now One With Nature would be competition, so they are not carrying our line of 4oz bulk bars of soap (square and unwrapped).
We are still manufacturing these bars of soap. You can now find them on our website for order. Single orders and in groupings. Additionally, we offer gift baskets and 3 bar groupings for easy gifts!
a. Cocamidopropyl Betaine and Sodium Coco-Sulfate are commonly found in natural skin care products (including One With Nature). Both are derived from coconut. If you have a sensitivity to tree nuts, we suggest that you select a bar soap instead and avoid using any personal care products with coconut derived ingredients. In reference to our Coconut Lime Washes, please also see FAQ above “How do you create your fragrances” — “distilled coconut essential oil does not exist…”.
a. We used to have a bar that was Coconut milk; however, we no longer produce that bar soap. We do offer Coconut-Lime Body Wash and Hand Wash and Lotion. Please be advised to not use this fragrance clearly per the name. ***Please also see FAQ (surfactants) above.
