LATHER has partnered with Clean the World, a non-profit organization that distributes recycled soap products to impoverished countries worldwide, and to domestic homeless shelters. This organization saves countless lives by providing access to soap and education about proper hygiene to prevent the spread of disease.
For every bar of Olive Oil soap sold, LATHER will donate the equivalent of five bars of soap to Clean the World.
LATHER has partnered with Carbonfund.org to offset the carbon footprint of our corporate office and to donate to worldwide reforestation projects. Carbonfund.org is a non-profit organization leading the fight against climate change, making it easy and affordable for individuals, businesses and organizations to reduce and offset their climate impact. Carbon offsets enable individuals and businesses to reduce carbon dioxide emissions they are responsible for in their everyday lives by supporting third-party validated renewable energy, energy efficiency and reforestation projects.
LATHER was founded by a migraine sufferer who learned at an early age that many of her headaches were triggered by the synthetic fragrances in beauty products; hence, she created LATHER using only pure essential oils instead of perfumes. To help other headache sufferers, LATHER has introduced new Clear Head Balancing Balm, an all-natural salve that draws on therapeutic essential oils to help ease tension and pressure while promoting balance and well-being. To learn more about headache causes and treatments, visit www.headaches.org or call 1-888-NHF-5552.
