All mineral pigments we use are laboratory-purified, nature-identical oxides, hydroxides and ultramarines. Legislation now prohibits (thankfully) the use of mined sources of these minerals as they may contain harmful contaminants such as arsenic and toxic heavy metals. The mineral pigments we use have exactly the same chemical formula as the mined version, but are 100% pure, non-irritating and thus totally safe for cosmetic use; EU labelling directives requires that each one be listed according to a specific universally acknowledged code number, the ‘ci number’.
We do NOT use any synthetic colours or pigments such as F&DC lab colours.
Our supplier for mica has assured us that it is not mined using child labour.

Please note: as this is a handmade product there will be variations between individual bars; the product images displayed are only examples of the design although the overall theme will be the same. Generally speaking, no two bars are exactly the same and may have slightly different dimensions owing to their hand-cut nature.
Additionally, some bars may bear a whitish ‘bloom’. This is perfectly harmless soda ash which occurs commonly on soaps with a high percentage of lavender essential oil that need to be poured when the batter is very fluid (as is the case with Bumblebee Lucorum); it will disappear within the first few uses of the bar.
