In the mid nineties I became deeply enamored with essential oils for health and healing. I read every book on aromatherapy and herbalism I could get my hands on. My craving for beautiful natural scent was unquenchable! I made all manner of potions for fun, fragrance and for medicine. With the understanding that essential oils were an excellent avenue for cosmetic and therapeutic use that would not contribute negatively to the hundreds of tiny toxic loads we are exposed to everyday in our skin care and our environment, I was inspired to start my own business centering on health, beauty and smelling great!
Though, I always dreamed of building my own natural skincare line, finding the occasion to begin never came. When the opportunity arose for me to carry on Frontier Angel Soap, a product that I have sold in my own retail shop and a company that I stood behind and admired for years, I could not refuse. Now that I have gotten acquainted with the ins and outs of this sweet business, I am looking forward to upholding it’s righteous mission, to make beautiful and wholesome artisan body care products.
If you are looking for quality body care that is good for your body, smells great AND doesn’t impact the environment negatively, you’ve come to the right place.
It all starts with our preferred ingredients; the best quality non-GMO, organic &/or fairly traded oils and butters. All of our products are scented with our proprietary essential oil blends custom mixed in house. If colorants are used, we use botanical infusions, powdered herbs and the best quality cosmetic grade micas and earth pigments to create an unparalleled range of gorgeous natural colors. Our products are presented in either recycled, recyclable or compostable packaging.
But it's not just our great ingredients, it's also what we don't use that sets us apart:
- No Preservatives (because our products are water free and don't need them)
- No Sulfates (because petrolatum is a non-renewable resource and it doesn't belong on our bodies)
- No Synthetic fragrances (because yuck, right? Also bad for those with allergies and skin sensitivities)
- No Artificial colorants (because herbs + spices are colorful)
- No Plastic (because we can do better than that)
Our studio is located in the rural Sierra foothills of California and it's where we make all of our products from our own formulas using the highest quality ingredients in small, handmade batches. A commitment was made from day one to keep manufacturing local and never outsource overseas or to large faceless manufacturing facilities. Our company is family run company, working towards creating a legacy of doing good on a global scale and moving away from outdated manufacturing practices and questionable ingredients.
Frontier Angel began, in 2002, with a woman who wasn’t happy with her options in commercial body care and a mission to make a product that her customers could trust would be wholesome and natural. It continues as a dependable source for natural, handmade and environmentally conscious alternatives in quality skincare with our primary product being a luscious bar soap in several different styles and perfume blended essential oils.
Doing something good for yourself and for our environment is easy when you use Frontier Angel products.
