Plush Pagoda Soapery Review

Plush Pagoda Soapery is a new business that specializes in natural soaps and other bodycare products.  They take great pride in the fact that their products are all natural and great for your skin.  I was very excited to work with them on a review for their Bamboo and Mangobomb scented bar soaps.

Who is Plush Pagoda??

"Plush Pagoda Soapery was founded in the summer of 2010.  They are a micro-soapery nestled in the hills of Thousand Oaks, CA.   This company creates personal care products using only natural and organic ingredients.  Their products are an indulgance to your body and friendly to the enviornment."

 What they have to say:

Plush Pagoda Values:

"Our Values help define who we are-- our business, our brand, our culture."

Self indulgence isn't necessarily a bad thing if we indulge responsibly.
 Products made from plants make a difference--on our bodies and our enviornment.
 Preservatives should be used only in small amounts and only when necessary.  To date, over 80% of our products  preservative free!
 Packaging is a necessary "evil" and should be kept to a minimum whenever possible.
 Profits are important, but so is being a socially responsible company.
 Products should never be tested on animals.  Humans provide the best feedback.
 The notion of "All Sales are Final"is ludicrous.  If something isn't right, let's fix it.
 We will always do our best to make your experience with PlushPagoda the best it can be! 

What I have to say:

PlushPagoda is a great company!  I was given two 6 oz. bar soaps, one Bamboo and one Mangobomb. 
The Bamboo was made from: Saponified oils of Olive, Palm, Coconut, Grapeseed, Castor, Organic Centella Asiatic, Lemon and Sage pure essential oil, and Alpha-Tocopheryl (Vitamin A)
The Mangobomb was made from: Saponified oils of Olive, Palm, Coconut, Avocado, Castor Oil, Vitamin A, Coloring, and Mango fragrance oil.
So as you can see, these products are very natural and great for your skin!  My fiance, Josh, helped me with this review.  He loves anything natural and I thought these soaps would be right up his alley.  So here are our pros and cons:

Pros: They are natural and preservative free.  They leave a nice light scent on your hands afterwards.  Josh mentioned there are a lot of soaps out now that leave a very heavy fragrance on your hands afterwards, almost overpowering sometimes.  These soaps also wash off very cleanly, leaving no soap scummy film behind, leaving your hands feeling very clean and soft.  It's back to basics with these soaps and that is a good thing.  

Cons: I personally didn't like the scents of either soap, where as Josh did.  They smell very natural, but I found the bamboo scent to be almost peppery in a way.  

Want it? Of course you do!
PlushPagoda will be opening in January of 2010 but when it does open you will be able to purchase your very own 5 oz organic bar soap for only $6.50!  Let me tell you, when it comes to organic and all natural, you can't beat that price!  And of course you get what you pay for..quality.  I highly recommend purchasing some soap from PlushPagoda not just because they have great products but because they are a great company.  They have wonderful customer service and outstanding products..what more could you ask for?!
I will be holding another review in a week or two and I might hold a giveaway then.  We'll see! ;)  But for now check out PlushPagoda's website for more info and be sure to check back in January for their grand opening!
