We work closely with local and organic suppliers – both providing fair wages and employment in my community as well as fair prices for supplies. We take great pride in being familiar with the source of our key ingredients and introducing our supplier family to the world. This vision is also reflected in our packaging. All Tierra & Lava products are packaged in glass, aluminum or cardboard. Our soap is wrapped in a combination of brown paper and a label with as little colour as possible while still conveying the vivid culture of Guatemalan handmade textiles. he vapor blends and toners are bottled in glass; the face scrubs and creams in glass jars. And our tags are made of handmade recycled paper. Our packaging is not all locally sourced as yet, as it is prohibitively expensive and requires mass production but we hope to be able to work with local factories in the future and in the meantime our packaging comes from reputable third parties with eco-friendly and repurposable options.
DISCLAIMERS & RECOMMENDATIONS
As our soaps are handmade and hand-cut each batch may have some very slight variations .
To keep your soap bar as firm and long-lasting as possible, you need to keep it out of water when not in use. Try to use a soap dish that drains well.
Please keep in a cool, dark place when not in use to prolong the life of your product.
Now shipping from Florida, USA!
We are more than happy to customise your products for your needs, but please note that this means your product will ship from Guatemala which will be slightly more expensive and may take longer. Send me a message if you are interested and I will be able to give you a more exact estimate.
