Why I use tallow in handmade soap, and the rest of my story.

 In many ways, what you surround yourself with becomes you. While taking a ferry in New Zealand, surrounded by pure, natural, and unadulterated beauty, the idea for DERMURE handmade soap was born.  

Handmade and humbly pure, the goodness of my products lies in the simplicity and quality of their ingredients. 

Our grandmothers, their grandmothers, and the great grandfathers too, all used soap made from tallow. The reason they used tallow is because it makes a GREAT bar of soap that is both long lasting and moisturizing, AND because they didn't let anything go to waste. Tallow is a by-product of the beef industry, so for as long as people eat beef, there will always be a renewable supply of tallow and an all natural, skin loving, ultra moisturizing ingredient source for Humbly Pure handmade soap. 

I believe in the words “be the change you want to see in the world,” and this is my go at it.
