LATHER crafts the finest natural products for skin, hair and home by utilizing the world's most therapeutic and effective essential oils.  Though more expensive, we choose to use essential oils because they do not contain the harsh petrochemicals or phthalates, which can be found in the synthetic fragrances of other brands. 

Essential oils (EO) are derived from aromatic essences of plants, trees, fruits, flowers, herbs and spices.  They have many medicinal properties and can be used for inhalation and application to the body, where their small molecular size allows for easy absorption by the skin. Different from vegetable or animal oils, EOs lack fatty acids, but they do contain plant hormones and organic chemical compounds that regenerate and oxygenate new cells.  The quality of EOs varies greatly and is dependent on growing conditions, age of the plants and the skill of those performing distillation.

Essential oils are not perfume oils.  Perfume oils are generally synthetic and have been "created" to smell like a specific plant, fruit or other aroma.  Perfume oils may smell similar to essential oils but  they do not offer medicinal or healing properties. 

Aromatherapy, the use of fragrant essential oils extracted from herbs, flowers and fruits to enhance a feeling of well-being, has been a cornerstone of the LATHER brand from the beginning.
