2. Vegan Ingredients

As noted above, no animal products or by-products are ever included in our products.  Additionally, we never test our products on animals in any form.

3. Natural Ingredients

Our products are all 99-100% natural by the common standards (since there are no legal standards).  Still, it's important to keep in mind that not all natural ingredients are safe and not all synthetic ingredients are harmful.  We here at Shakespeare's Bathtub make the safety of ingredients our number one priority, and the naturalness our second.   

We love to harness nature for the good of our customer's skin and hair.  Our recipes are specifically built around the idea that safe and natural ingredients are the highest standard.

4. Canadian Ingredients

Buying local is buying well and we like to support our fellow Canadian businesses.  You'll notice that some choice ingredients in our products are 100% Canadian, from seedling to storefront.  

For example, you'll find premium maple syrup in every water-based product from our But Soft! line, tapped from the gorgeous, wild forests of Quebec.  Plus, we only purchase from ingredient, packaging and labeling suppliers who are based in Canada.
