Why do we do what we do?

I started making soap when my twins were babies (I don't know what I was thinking). I did, however, know that I was tired of trying to decipher product ingredient lists, sometimes topping 20 ingredients in one lotion of body wash.

We use a max of 8 ingredients in any of our current products. We do not use palm oil in our bar soaps (due to the deforestation controversy surrounding its farming - we like orangutans and prefer their habitats stay intact), we do not use phthalates, formaldehyde, sulfates... no nasties. As the beard old video states (https://youtu.be/CVIT 7gPkA4), "We're all about simple at Dirty Knees."

Anywho... back to the "how we got started"... my husband tried the first bar of what is now  known as our Minnesota Wood Bar Soap, loved it, and told me I could never stop making it.

The rest is history (get the full, more comedic story here: https://www.dirtykneessoap.com/blogs/blog/46998721-he-kept-his-old-green-soap-why-genius). We've grown very organically from there. Customer feedback, customer requests.
