Nerd Alert: More Detailed Information On Ingredients:
Coconut Oil is the base vegetable oil used for our soap. Using only coconut oil results in a long-lasting, hard bar that is great for cleaning.
Sodium Cocoate: This is the chemical name of saponified (that is, 'made into soap') coconut oil. It's the chemical that grabs onto both dirt and water to do the cleaning.
Glycerin: This substance is chemically a type of alcohol and is naturally created when the oil is converted into soap. Glycerin is known for skin-softening abilities and is an effective solvent, meaning it can dissolve substances such as stains and dirts.
Organic Cocos Nucifera (Coconut) Oil: There is a small amount of coconut oil left in the soap after conversion to sodium cocoate. This is because we use sodium hydroxide, or lye, in the conversion process and leaving excess oil ensures there is no remaining lye in the finished product. Some soapmakers refer to this as 'superfatting' and more oil remaining results in a softer, more moisturizing bar. Our coconut soap bars have only a small amount of excess oil, so they are not the luxurious body bar type and more of a 'get the job done' bar.
Water: Water is used in the soapmaking process as a substance that dissolves lye and then is a medium so the lye can reach all of the oil to react. After being useful in this process, the water is allowed to evaporate from the soap over a period of several weeks, and the resulting dried bar has very little water. There is only about 5% water remaining in the finished bars, thus making them more shelf stable than a liquid soap that would require a preservative due to the high (about 60%) water.

I've only used this stain stick once so far, but it was on a really stubborn grease stain that I've been trying to get out forever, and it WORKED so I'm super happy! It's very easy to use - just get the stained area wet and rub the stick on it a little bit, then throw in the wash. After rubbing it in for a bit you can see the product starting to lather up. There's no scent at all, and the packaging is nice and minimal. I'm actually planning to keep the stick in the box while it's not in use, so that it doesn't accidentally get lost. For only $5 this is so great!
I got a small citrus stain on a natural dye cotton shirt and immediately was worried it'd stain forever. I followed the instructions to rinse the rinse the area and rub the stain stick. After some light scrubbing in the hand wash basin of my washing machine the stain was gone, my clothes as good as new, and ready to be worn again after some air drying.
