I am completely converted to these handmade SHAMPOO BARS, from Island Wise Essentials on Haida Gwaii.  They lather beautifully, smell great and are easy on your skin. AND they eventually wash away to nothing. No recycling, no plastic. They last a long time, just waiting in a little pottery dish by the bath...

Our skin care and color is formulated without: Animal testing, animal ingredients, FD&C color, phthalates, parabens, sulfates, propylene glycol, benzene, mineral oil, petroleum, peanut oil, triclosan, and other ingredients you do not want on your skin.


Pacifica uses a natural grain alchohol for our spray and roll-on perfume base. The  soild perfume is made from a coconut and soy based wax. Brook Harvey-Taylor personally develops all of the scents using the highest quality ingredients including essential and natural oils from all over the world to create Pacifica’s proprietary perfume blends. Pacifica does not support the use of naturals that are threatened or where the harvesting of the plant endangers biodiversity or causes other environmental issues. Pacifica adheres to strict IFRA standards, a self-governing organization that sets safety standards for all natural and non-natural aroma compounds.
