Ylang Lavender SLS-free soap from Me & The Boy
I highly recommend the Ylang Lavender SLS-free soap from Me & The Boy. Clear undyed vegetable glycerin with a pretty baroque design betraying the lovely fact it was hand-poured in a small cottage industry batch. It lathers, it smells lovely to me: that note of old-fashioned, unmasked, work horse soap smell. I can use it on my farm and it won't pollute my stream.
(What's Sodium Lauryl Sulfate? Who Cares?
Sodium Lauryl Sulfate - SLS - is an ingredient in many cleaning products, hygiene products, and toiletries we use daily. Its function is to remove grease and oil…but it does its job so well that it also causes health issues ranging from eczema to canker sores.
People with sensitive skin are particularly susceptible.

Meet the maker of the soap and other products such as candles, bath products, and home decor: Tanya Picano of Toronto. Her story inspires:
“Me and the boy is just that. I am Tanya, and the boy is my son Val. I have been a stay at home mom since his birth, I had no choice as my son had many issues. He's almost 4 now. Having ADHD and him as well, life can be very interesting…like many high needs kids needs alot of 1 on 1.

I bought her maple-scented soy candles for a shoot. Loved them. She's chock full of creative stuff. Hurry over to Me & The Boy and see for yourself!
