At Stubborn Oaks we handcraft completely natural bath, body and home products in small batches with high quality ingredients and essential oils. Our business began in 2013, although we’ve been making soap for over 15 years, and have expanded from soap, lotion bars and lip balms to home products like dish soap and hand soap (both borax and sodium borate free!). All of our products are vegetarian (the soaps are actually vegan), and contain no parabens, preservatives, thickeners, or artificial fragrances. Each product is designed and developed by us from scratch, with our own recipes - no store-bought soap or lotion bases – and is the result of hours of research and experimentation. The results are products we can be proud of, and that our customers can confidently enjoy.
Keep it simple. We create all of our recipes, and they are designed to make the most of the ingredients we use – and to leave the extras out. That means you get only the very best – no fillers, thickeners, or hardeners; in other words, none of those extras that do nothing but take up space.
Keep it real. We only use the good stuff – high quality natural and organic oils, and only essential oils for our scents. No artificial fragrances (ever!), no parabens, phthalates, sulfates or phosphates.
Keep it honest. We like to keep our customers informed about what goes into our products – and what goes on their bodies. That means you know exactly what you’re getting when you use Stubborn Oaks.
