- Our packaging is minimal and always printed on 100% recycled paper.
- Many of our products like our Shampoo Moons, our Shaving Cream Soaps, our One Bars, all of our Soap Bars and Solid Lotion Bars are designed to create ZERO WASTE and do not require a bottle that would later need to be recycled.
- Almost all of our other products are packaged in glass containers which, unlike plastic, is truly recyclable or reusable.
- All of our shipping materials are recycled or reused.
- We source our ingredients and supplies as locally as possible.
NONE of our products, nor their ingredients, are ever tested on animals!
The original concept of Emz Blendz began in 1998 in Emily's (Emz) kitchen, where she discovered the art and magic of soap making. As an artist who lives through her senses, she was inspired by her love of nature's scents, her native Oregonian upbringing, her creative spirit and her intuitive sense of comfort.
Soap-crafting, the study and practice of aromatherapy, as well as, natural therapeutic care of the body and spirit, became the conduit for her artistic passion. Emz very first soaps and blendz were lovingly created as gifts and healing remedies for family members and friends; this energy and enthusiasm for creating beautiful healthy gifts is still infused into every product.
Now, nearly twenty years later, Emily continues to carefully hand-craft and oversee each and every batch, ensuring a consistent standard, of high quality, all natural products. Andy, Emily’s husband, manages all aspects of branding, web development, graphic design and photography for the company. Jaden, their daughter, a talented young artist, also works within the company and even sketches many of the pictures for product labels. Nathan, their son, a high school student and gifted athlete, often spends summers helping in The Soap Lab, cutting and wrapping soaps.
Every single product/recipe (including its packaging) that has been or will be created has had hours of forethought, passion and our true love for creating meaningful products. We hope that they bring each individual who uses them, a little bonus bliss; that somehow the joy and delight we feel while creating them, will also be felt by the person who uses them.
You will find Emz Blendz natural bath and body products to be the best you've ever purchased. "My hope is that you find a little bit of joy when you use any of Emz Blendz products and that you...
Live healthy and happy from the skin to within...™"
