WE’RE COMMUNITY NATURALS
Natural Home and Body scents made by the Special Needs Community
WHO WE ARE
We are a community of special needs parents and advocates that make products that fight for others.
We are local. All of our products are sourced from local suppliers and produced in the U.S.A. We are based in Irondale, AL. and get as many supplies as possible from our metro-Birmingham area businesses.
We are natural. All of our candles and soaps use the highest quality ingredients available. Our candles have soy wax, cotton wicks and skin-safe oils that are phthalate free. Our soaps have a buttermilk, oat and honey base with natural oils and no detergents or dyes. Our packaging is plastic free and recyclable or reusable.
We are missional. We are a not-for-profit company. All of our products are made in community with those possessing special needs. All of our profits go back to the special needs community, their parents and their advocates. We use our making process to coach job skills and teach life skills.
WHAT WE DO.
These soaps are made using a simple process that we are able to coach and share with those possessing developmental disabilities. They are also kind to our environment. Our creamy soaps are made from a base mixture including buttermilk, honey, and oats and are handmade. They are scented using natural frangrance and essential oils that are phthalate free. They have no detergents or dyes. Our 4 oz. bars of soap are packaged using natural papers.
NATURAL SOY CANDLES & MELTS
Our natural soy candles and melts are hand-poured. Our candles have natural wicks that are lead free. Both are scented with a combination of natural essential oils that are phthalate free and tinted with minimum dyes so they maintain a creamy and soft texture. We craft our candles and melts to provide as many jobs as possible, so each product represents community and attention that comes from the heart. Our 9 oz. candle in a mason type jar will burn for up to 60 hours. Our wax melts are 1/2 pound and come in a linen bag.
HOW WE DO IT.
We have a simple process for making candles and soaps. We have created this process to allow for as many tasks as possible to be shared with adults that have developmental disabilities. Our products are not fancy. They are just made well. And they are made with love.
Our profits are shared with those that have helped us in making our products. We share community time together as we form and strengthen relationships. We have times when we hand pour candles or hand craft soaps. We prepare our packaging or organize our production process together. We work on putting our products together and get them ready to sell. We also have times when we sell our products together in a pop-up shop or ship them to you.
All of these moments are intentional to provide a sense of belonging, importance and deliver to you the best product possible. We coach life-skills and job skills to empower employment and encourage entrepeneurship.
This process is fueled with love and with kindness.
