It's Only Natural

Treat yourself to a deep clean 20,000 years in the making. The essential ingredient in this Mineral Mud bar is Moor mud, which is composed of a unique blend of herbs, plants, grasses and flowers that have wilted into the damp lowlands of Austria, Hungary, and Czechoslovakia. As centuries passed, these botanicals were transformed into a skin-soothing super-blend of vitamins, minerals, and phytonutrients. The Romans prized Moor mud for its ability to soothe aching muscles and reduce swelling in joints. And the Celts believed that a dunk in this miracle worker could even calm an upset stomach.

Today, Moor mud is considered a master exfoliator and hydrator whose essential oils, fats, and lipids are able to penetrate the skin with ease. In Mary Ann Forehand's earthy soap bar, this ancient healer is made even better with the addition of mineral-rich salts sourced straight from the Dead Sea. Handcrafted in North Carolina.

Mineral Mud Bar features:
-Dead Sea Mud
-Dead Sea Salt
-Fresh mint and citrus essential oils
-Moor Mud

Mud Bar Contains: Organic Olive Oil, Organic Palm Oil, Organic Coconut Oil, Palm Kernel Flakes, Distilled Water, Sodium Hydroxide, Organic Castor Oil, Essential Oils, Dead Sea Salts, Organic Avocado Oil, Dead Sea Mud, Moor Mud, Beeswax

Featuring swirls of gold dust, periwinkle, chartreuse, and ivory, Mary Ann Forehand's lovely little bar gains its painterly appearance from an all-natural blend of skin-soothing ingredients. Olive, coconut, and palm oils are blended with shea and cocoa butters for a creamy blend of moisturizing elements that will pamper parched skin. An aromatic mix of lemongrass, lavender, and rose geranium impart the bar with a gentle perfume plucked straight from the garden. Handcrafted in North Carolina.

Sprout Soap features:
-Shea butter
-Cocoa butter
-Lemongrass, lavender and rose geranium essential oils

Mary Ann Forehand

I have a BFA degree in Painting and Drawing from East Carolina University. I believe that creativity is a lifestyle and that I am constantly shaping my artistic aesthetic. After a lifetime of cooking, painting and being a metalsmith I became interested in natural personal care products. I have many skin allergies and needed to find some solution. As I started experimenting with soap making I began giving the things I made to friends and family. Soon I was spending all my time working on my products and Little Birdie was born.

I approach all of my products as art and I think this shows in the originality of the ingredients used as well as the design of the product itself. There is so much exciting work being done with natural skin care products and I really want to convey to our customers how much better their skin will feel and look by changing to these products. Let's not keep putting junk on our poor skin!

                  I am still not sure I will give this as a gift. The presentation is not very attractive. The wrapping is flimsy and the soap looks cheap.

                      This product has not yet been used. It arrived promptly. It is very pretty and nice smelling. However, the jagged shape at the top makes it look like it is broken. I had to check the product page to make sure it was supposed to be that way.
