Borne out of one mom’s desire to be the best mom ever, So True Naturals started out as a line of handmade Castile soaps. After discovering the not-so-friendly stuff found in most baby products, Mia Lauchengco, boss mom of So True Naturals, decided to whip up some of her own. With a liter of olive oil and a stick blender, Mia made a batch of super mild Castile soaps to make her baby clean and happy. http://www.flickr.com/photos/hypermom/9074350499/
Castile soap is made from 100 percent plant oils, specifically olive oil. Because it is completely biodegradable, it is very friendly to the environment. More importantly, it is gentle and safe to use on a newborn’s sensitive skin. It also works wonders for individuals with skin conditions like eczema and psoriasis.
When Mia introduced her soaps to the market, it wasn’t surprising that they were very well received. After all, there were a lot of other women who also wanted to become the best mom ever! Some of So True Natural’s bestselling soaps include Peppermint Cinnamon, which pairs the refreshing qualities of peppermint with the exfoliating properties of cinnamon; and Lavender Oatmeal; lavender soothes skin while oatmeal smoothens. Other flavors: Ylang-Ylang Peppermint, Rose, Lemongrass-Ginger-Peppermint, Coffee-Peppermint, and Tea Tree-Lemon-Peppermint.
In time, Mia offered other products which naturally answered her own baby’s growing up needs. And because Mia primarily formulated these goodies for her own family, they are made from ingredients that are absolutely safe and beneficial to little kids.
Apart from the Castile soaps, So True Naturals now also offers Bye-bye, Everybuggy! Natural Insect Repellent, Skin Repair Balm, Love-A-Dub Rub Baby Vapor Rub, Sea Salt Scrub, and Room and Linen Sprays.
