Pioneer of Foaming Organic Hand Soap Announces New 'FLAvor' & New Sizes

Vermont Soapworks Launches Lavender Ecstasy Foaming Hand Soap and 16 oz. Refills

Middlebury, Vermont (October 30, 2006) –Vermont Soapworks has followed up on the successful launch of the nation’s first organic foaming hand soap by announcing a fresh new foaming hand soap flavor and new economy-size refill containers. Offered in a convenient 7-ounce dispenser with a hi-tech pump top for a SRP of $7.89, Lavender Ecstasy is the new addition to the line of Vermont Soap Organics Foaming Hand Soaps.

It has never been easier to enjoy luxurious, creamy soap lather. A quick pump of the “foamer” device aerates USDA certified organic castile liquid soap into a frothy handful of foam. The all-natural foaming process, which pumps the soap through a series of tiny screens and mixes it with air, does not use any propellants or chemicals in the process.

The foamer unit itself is designed to be reusable. Vermont Soapworks is also announcing their new “economy-sized” 16-ounce and 1-gallon refill bottles of Vermont Soap Organics Foaming Hand Soap to be added to the pump unit once it is empty. Offered in both the new Lavender Ecstasy and original Lemongrass Zen varieties, the SRP for the 16-ounce Refill is $9.99, and the SRP for the 1-gallon Refill is $49.99.

New Lavender Ecstasy Foaming Hand Soap is made from renewable vegetable and botanical sources including organic coconut and olive oil, pure essential oils, organic aloe and rosemary extract. Lavender Ecstasy has a pleasant and relaxing scent, a remarkably soft vegetable oil soap feel and is extraordinarily mild and hypoallergenic. It is completely natural and free of artificial colors, fragrances, preservatives, and animal by-products. Vermont Soap Organics does not test on animals. As a certified organic product, Lavender Ecstasy Foaming Hand Soap is guaranteed to be free of the synthetic ingredients found in mass-marketed foamers.

Vermont Soapworks is an organic and natural soap innovator. In addition to offering the first certified organic foaming hand soaps, other breakthroughs 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 Soapworks in 1992 after experiencing severe skin problems from the cleaning chemicals 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 other synthetic ingredients. Vermont Soapworks 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. The company also operates a Discount Factory Outlet Store that features an Antique Soap Museum, factory tours and demonstrations. Vermont Soapworks’ manufacturing operation was among the first to be certified as a USDA organic processing facility specializing in topical products.
