At Saucha we are committed to crafting products that are vegan and cruelty free
The term ‘saucha’ originates from a Sanskrit word used in the ancient yoga texts and translates literally as cleanliness. Not only of the body, but encompassing thought, word, and deed, our aim is to provide a product that not only feels and is good for you and the world in general.
Our commitment is to individually made products using only natural and sustainable ingredients. It is also to supporting positive and life affirming charities, one yoga related, and one for women with breast cancer. We have strong personal motivations with both.
Saucha aims to help us appreciate the full expression of clean or purity. We aspire to do our very best in the life we have been given. Trying to do a little bit of good, first by taking care of ourselves, then our loved ones, then from there all people, animals and the planet which itself unconditionally sustains us.
Saucha products are free from the following:
Palm oil: Large areas of forest and other eco-systems with high conservation value have been cleared to make room for vast mono-culture oil palm plantations destroying critical habitat for many endangered species including rhino, elephant, tigers and gorillas.
Artificial fragrance: We use only pure essential oils of botanicals to scent our soaps, no nasty chemical fragrances.
Artificial colours: We use only natural plant based colourants that often contain their own benefits including clays and activated charcoal, this means that sometimes the colour may fade or not be uniform, but we are OK with this.
Parabens: Widely thought to cause skin irritations, allergic reactions as well as possible links to endocrine disruptions and particularly breast cancer.
Sulfates: Found in most rinse off products such as shampoos and skin cleansers sulfates are linked to skin allergies and irritations.
Petrolatum / Mineral Oils: Petrolatum, or petroleum jelly, is a semisolid mixture derived from refining crude oil, there are concerns that they may have carcinogenic side effects.
