from giving a gift to a business
We started by making soap for Christmas gifts with a clear vision of what we wanted: Soap with integrity. Luxury, hand crafted soap that was all natural, non-GMO, no chemicals and nothing "nature identical" made in a lab. We also thought we'd be kind to animals by making our soaps vegan. Come to find out, a lot of folks out there are allergic to factory soaps. After many requests for more and comments like, "I can't believe how well it lathers!" and "This is the only soap my
skin-allergy prone kids can use" we decided we might be on to something.
So from the banks of the Rogue River in Michigan we created Flow Bathworks, a company with a conscience. Michigan made in small batches with non-GMO and sustainable oils, scented with no synthetic fragrances–only pure essential oils. Our soaps are free of sulfates, harsh detergents, preservatives and lab created colorants. We use environmentally friendly packaging and keep it to a minimum.
WE'RE STILL GIVING. So far in 2017:
