Artha Handmade Hemp Soaps

Sustainable Products

Updated on February 21, 2020

Since 1993 Artha Hemp Soaps have been made by hand in small batches with the finest whole ingredients. The proprietary recipe evolved from recipes that are hundreds, perhaps thousands, of years old.

The soap is made with food grade coconut oil, California olive oil, California rainwater, and alkali (from sea salt).

I superfat the soap with nourishing hemp seed oil, and then add a unique combination of ingredients: aromatherapy-grade plant oils called essential oils (never synthetic fragrances) whole grain flours, ground nuts, herbs, spices, and plant roots, gums & resins.

These are ingredients which have proven to be safe over the millennia. Glycerin, a natural by-product of soapmaking, is left in the soap. It hydrates the skin by drawing moisture from the air.
