Here's why we did that and what's changed: Our logo and product packaging was created during the ancient era known as 2013.

It seems a simple matter to list the ingredients in something as straightforward as a bar of soap, but because there are chemical reactions that take place in the soapmaking process, what you get at the store is not just a mix of the ingredients used to make the soap. Let's think about beer. (Mmmm.)   The ingredients used to make beer are: water, barley, hops, and yeast.
