ABOUT THE MAKER:
In 2016, Kate and José took a much-needed vacation to Europe after José (pictured here) quit his stressful job. Back home after a long day in Paris, they drew a bath and the idea for a natural soap company bubbled up.
Back in New York, they started experimenting in their kitchen with the food-grade oils that the couple had at home, which is also pictured. By the summer of 2017, they were ready to launch TREE*STAR at the Queens Night Market.
TREE*STAR produces cold process soap, which is kind of like wizardry. They turn organic, food-grade, olive and coconut oil into soap using precise combinations of oil (acid), water, and our magic ingredient sodium hydroxide (base). This organic chemical process is called saponification. (not that simple but let's pretend it is).
The whole process takes 6 weeks because our natural soaps don't contain preservatives, surfactants, or detergents.
All of their soaps cure by naturally airing out to form a hard, long-lasting natural soap bar.

Everything I've ordered from this site is of much higher quality than the pedestrian equivalent.
A Very Satisfied Costumer
My last order is not my first order and it will not be the last. This should underscores the fact that I love your products. As your service is topnotch.
We love this soap!
It has a roughness from the kelp but it's easy on the skin. No fragrance is a plus. This is an awesome product.
