1. What is Natural Skin Care and why is it better
Natural Skin Care regimen uses ingredients that are derived from the leaves, roots, seeds and flowers of plants and trees.It does not use harsh chemicals such as parabens, phosphates, phthalates that are known endocrine disruptors and carcinogens. Thus Natural Skin Care works in two ways: Eliminates your chances of exposure to harsh chemicals and provides your skin with the healing and nourishing touch of natural ingredients. Body Tree skin care range is responsibly-made with natural ingredients. Everything is made by hand in small batches, with some of the ingredients used in the products being sourced and grown locally. We strive to deliver the goodness of mother earth without contaminating it with chemicals.
2. Do you test your products on animals?
We are against animal testing and our products are not tested on animals.
3. Tell me more about the shelf life of the product.
The shelf life of Body Tree products is short when compared to standard skin care products available in the market. Standard skin care products are filled with preservatives to ensure a shelf life of 2- 3 years. Our products have a shelf life ranging from 6 months to 1 year. We at Body Tree do not use harmful chemical preservatives in the products to increase its shelf life. In short, we are proud of the shorter shelf life of our products. However preservatives-free products demand care from your side. Please ensurenot to get water inside the container. The products must be stored in a relatively dry and non-humid area to minimize spoilage.
4. Are these products hypoallergenic?
Natural skin care products are usually hypoallergenic. The healing natural ingredients in them work against rashes, redness and breakouts. However we recommend doing a patch test whenever you try a new product if you are prone to allergies and hives.
5. How do Ido a patch test?
It is very simple. Take a small amount of the product and apply it on your wrists,elbows or behind the ears. Wait for 10 minutes and rinse off. If redness or rashes appears immediately or within 24 hours please discontinue usage of the specific product. If not you may go onto use the product.
6. Why are your products packed in heavy glass or steel bottles?
Skin care industry uses plastic packaging material as it makes handling products convenient and products can be displayed attractively on store shelves. Though they may look attractive they are made of cheap plastic resulting in leaching of chemicals into the products. Also these plastic packaging materials are discarded after single usage, thus polluting the soil and water bodies. As a socially responsible and environmentally committed company we strive towards green packaging. It is a conscious decision on our part to use glass and steel bottles as there will be no leaching and these bottles can be reused in your home environment.
7. Why shouldI switch from my store-bought soap?
The soaps which you buy from stores are a concoction of harsh chemicals and detergents. They contain artificial lather boosters, phosphates,phthalates, synthetic colours,and synthetic fragrances. Glycerine is one of the natural by-products of soap making and this moisturizing agent is removed from store-bought soaps. The resulting soap strips the natural oils from the skin, leaving it dull and dry and exposes your skin to a host of unwanted chemicals witheach shower. These soaps are not only detrimental to your health but they also contaminate water bodies in the long run. If you care for your health and the sustainability of the environment switch to Body Tree Soaps.
8. How is Body Tree Soaps different from store-bought soaps?
Body Tree Soaps are made with pure vegetable oils, healing essential oils and nourishing herbs. These rich natural soaps are made in small batches using the cold process method to retain the healing properties of the oils and herbs.They are air-dried and aged for a minimum of four weeks to produce a mild, gentle and long lasting bar that is high in glycerine content. They contain natural colouring agents and exfoliants such as leaves and roots of herbs and plants.The luxurious lather of Body Tree Soaps exfoliates gently and cleanses deeply. Body Tree Soaps are handcrafted with care to leave your skin soft, smooth and glowing. The water resulting from the bath can be used directly to water your household plants.
9. What is cold process method and why is it preferred over melt and pour?
Body Tree Soaps are artisan soaps made using the cold process method. In cold process soap-making the soap is made from scratch using vegetable oils, sodium hydroxide and essential oils. The ingredients are never heated. Cold process soap-making retains the healing and nourishing qualities of the natural ingredients. Melt and pour soap-making uses mass produced bases which are melted to add colour and fragrance. Melt and pour soaps are easy to make but the maker has no control over the base ingredients.
10. What is Sodium Hydroxide and why is it used in a natural soap?
Soap cannot be made without sodium hydroxide. It is a strong alkali. During saponification (the process of soap-making) the alkali reacts with the acids in the vegetable oil creating soap. The soap resulting from saponification does not have alkaline or acidic properties. That means the final product you use does not have any sodium hydroxide in it.
11. How long will my soap last?
We assure 30-40 washes if you do not soak it in a soap tray every time. Place the soap in a dry and raised soap tray with adequate drainage after each use. There is no other magic trick to save the soap.

But if you think it is too oily for your taste just rinse it off with any soap from the Body Tree handmade range.
