|- Organic Soap -
made with pure essential oils
Light Stone was created 21 years ago after a long and unproductive
search for pure and natural skin care products. The products that I found
either contained synthetic, harmful ingredients, or they were very poor in
quality. So I began the on-going process of education, trial and error and
long days of study about the process of soap making. Then came the study
of the tremendous effects of essential oils (better known as aromatherapy)
on the body and the mind. I think that we have combined our years of
study, research and experimentation to create truly exceptional products.
We have always used only the highest quality ingredients and we have
always created our products with great consideration for the body, mind,
spirit and the environment. So we hope you enjoy using our products as
much as we enjoy creating them for you!

Ingredients to Avoid
We feel that's important for people to become aware of the harmful ingredients that are
found in the products that they use on a daily basis. We need to educate ourselves and
learn which ingredients are actually harmful and dangerous for our bodies. Some of the
most harmful ingredients are proven carcinogens. Be sure to check ingredients on
glycerin, French milled and "hypoallergenic" soaps. Also check your shampoos, creams,
lotions and perfumes. You will find that most contain cheap oils, animal fats and/or
synthetic petrochemicals. Some ingredients that you definitely check for and avoid are:
Sodium Lauryl / Laureth Sulfate (SLS), Propylene Glycol, petroleum products, parabens,
synthetic colors, fragrances and preservatives.
Also check for fragrance oils, perfume oils and nature identical oils which are
deceptive names for synthetic fragrance oils. Please avoid all of these! They pollute
the air, they are considered toxic and they are some of our biggest causes of cancer.
Some of these chemicals have actually been proven to be neurotoxins (this means that
they may cause long term damage to the brain).
Please read your ingredients carefully and have a safe and healthy life!
