BirdProject - Lovebirds Edition

Yes, there’s a bird and a story inside this soap.

This bird-shaped, all natural, and vegan black soap, made from biodiesel glycerin, Fair Trade olive oil, aloe, and other local ingredients, hides a smaller white ceramic bird, made from Louisiana Clay.

The lovebirds edition ceramic birdie wears a red heart at its tail which is created by two fingerprints in red glaze that are handprinted at an angle to form the heart.

As the black soap washes away over time, a clean white bird is set free inside – a “potent symbol of restoration and recovery,” say the artists. It’s meant to remind you of the lasting effects of the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill, and the ongoing need for its environmental restoration.

Handmade by a third generation soap maker in New Orleans, the soaps are shaped to be cradled in your hand, with a light cypress scent – reminiscent of Louisiana bayous.

Matter Inc. donates 10% of all sale proceeds to the Gulf Restoration Network and International Bird Rescue for the environmental cleanup and care of animals affected by the BP Deepwater Horizon oil spill disaster of 2010. $23,000 donated and counting!

This lovely all natural soap is not only fantastic for your skin, but a beautiful keepsake, and a meaningful gift which gives to many.
