Middlebury, VT - Vermont Soap is proud to announce that the editors of Quick & Simple, a weekly national magazine published by the Hearst Corporation, have named their new Organic Foaming Hand Soap as one of the best products of 2007. The magazine's editors tested hundreds of brand-new products relating to home, health, fashion and beauty in order to find the most groundbreaking, time-saving products of the year.
These first-ever Quick & Simple Awards recognize the most clever products that help women find speedy and affordable solutions to life's everyday problems. Quick & Simple understands that with the demands of family, work and the home, time is a precious commodity for today’s busy woman.
“Our readers do not have much time to spare, so it is great that we can introduce them to a product that can help simplify their busy lives," says Susan Toepfer, editor-in-chief of Quick & Simple magazine. "The versatile organic foaming hand soap from Vermont Soap is definitely one of the best ‘quick fixes’ for 2007," adds Toepfer.
Vermont Soap's Organic Foaming Hand Soap is ideal for washing hands but can also be used to clean dishes in a pinch and in many other applications. It is great for cleaning up after pets leave their mark on carpets and also great on camping trips and on boats. It cleans people and everything else in sight effectively with minimal water use.
The soap is made from renewable vegetable and botanical sources including organic saponified coconut and Castile olive oil, pure essential oils, aloe and rosemary extract. Offered in Lemongrass Zen and Lavender Ecstasy, it has a pleasant scent, a remarkably soft vegetable oil soap feel and is extraordinarily mild and hypoallergenic. It is completely natural and is free of artificial colors, fragrances, preservatives, and animal by-products and is not tested on animals.
“The soap contains only pure essential oils that provide aromatherapy benefits for the mind and kill germs on the skin,” says Vermont Soap founder and President Larry Plesent. “As an organic castile liquid soap based product, the organic foaming hand soap is guaranteed to be free of the synthetic ingredients found in mass-marketed foamers,” adds Plesent.
Vermont Soap is an organic and natural soap innovator. In addition to offering the first certified organic foaming hand soaps, other breakthroughs achieved include the first USDA Approved, Certified Organic: bath & shower gel; pet wash; spray cleaner; multipurpose concentrated cleaner; and yoga/exercise mat cleaner.
Larry Plesent started Vermont Soap in 1992 after experiencing severe skin problems from detergents used by his window washing company. He began researching healthy alternatives for himself and the many people like him that are sensitive to detergents and synthetic ingredients.
The company has grown from a two person operation in 1992 to the largest manufacturer of handmade organic bar soap in North America, selling products in more than 2,500 stores nationwide. Vermont Soap also operates a Discount Factory Outlet Store that features an AntiqueSoapMuseum, factory tours and demonstrations.
Vermont Soap’s manufacturing operation was among the first to be certified as a USDA organic processing facility specializing in topical products.
