Hand-milled by refugees in Iraq, Sisterhood Soap uses natural, locally sourced ingredients. There are no dyes, scents, or artificial additives.
Made with love in Iraq ♥
Sisterhood soap is made by artisans with the Preemptive Love Coalition. Preemptive Love is a global movement of peacemakers changing the way we engage the world’s most polarizing conflicts by confronting fear with acts of LOVE. They lost everything to ISIS. They are mothers. Wives. Daughters. Refugees. They live in tents and shipping containers. But they are not victims. They are our sisters. They have a gift for making beautiful, natural soap—free of the chemicals and dyes found in most commercial soap. Every bar helps them grow their business, feed their families, and put their children back in school. Not through a handout, but through the work of their own hands. When you empower a refugee, helping her launch a new soapmaking business, you grow the sisterhood. You stop ISIS from having the last word over her life.
Handmade with 100% pure ingredients including saponified olive oil and activated charcoal
