Wild Lather

Osaka | Smoked Sage + Matcha

$16.00

Inspired by an intimate omotenashi tea cafe in Osaka, Japan, this meditative triangle will fill your bathing space with notes of lemon tea, smoked sage, and matcha. Steam-distilled essential oils of frankincense, lavender, sage, and cypress leaf swirl to provide a grounding bathing experience. An ultra nourishing base of California olive oil, coconut oil, camellia oil, castor oil, and shea butter unite with stone ground matcha and french green clay to tone and stimulate the skin, while organic poppy seeds gently exfoliate.

3oz+

Saponified Organic Shea Butter, Organic Olive Oil, Fair Trade Organic Coconut Oil, Organic Camellia Oil, and Organic Castor Oil; Kaolin Clay; A Unique Blend of Steam-Distilled Essential Oils* 

*Organic or Sustainably Wild Harvested

Lather up + breathe deeply.

Founded in 2018 by partners Liz and Conrad, Wild Lather found its way into being as an ode to their travels. On their last day of an epic trip, they were standing on what felt like the edge of the world, cliffside at Muriwai Beach, New Zealand. Their rental car doors were open, music was playing, and they looked down at the black sand beach, trying to wrap their minds around the journey that was ending. That was their last destination after living out of suitcases for the past eight months - just the two of them - planning as they went along. They had no idea what to expect when they boarded the flight back to Boston the next day. They had both quit our jobs, left their lease, and weren't sure that they'd ever feel that happy again. 

During that flight, Liz thought about the people and places they met. The makers, bathers, and surfers along the way. She also thought about the beautiful landscapes she could barely comprehend, and in contrast, a glacier that had retreated so far back you could now stand on the stone it once covered. Liz thought about how everything she needed could fit into a single suitcase when utilizing simple, multi-use products. That realization made her feel more connected to herself and the environment. Lastly, she thought about her soap making hobby. How relevant this time-honored method of bathing with plants suddenly felt. Somewhere over the Pacific Ocean, everything changed.   

That summer Liz obsessively researched, sourced, and tested the ingredients for a multi-use bar soap that was gentle and nourishing. A bar made from organic plants and free of palm oil and synthetic substances. As she poured myself into it, scent nostalgia crept in and memories from their adventure began to form essential oil blends. By December 2018, Liz and Conrad launched Wild Lather. And that bar turned out to be a triangle. ​

For every batch, they take their nourishing blend of five organic plant oils: California Olive, Shea Butter, Coconut, Camellia, and Castor, saponify them, then combine them with naturally occurring clays and solar-infused botanicals. They then swirl in a house-blend of steam-distilled essential oils and allow them to air-cure for one month. A time-honored process that's so worth the wait. Made in their sunny, southern California studio for full body bathing, shaving, intermittent face cleansing, and sustainable travel. Breathe deeply, friends.
