ALTR creates hand-made bar soap with local, wildcrafted botanicals. We seek to change popular soap culture (i.e., alter) by offering products that showcase only local southern Ontario plants, and, in this way, elevate (i.e., put on an altar) the seemingly mundane task of washing oneself into a ritual reconnection to the land that sustains us.
All of the main botanical elements are wildcrafted by us from local wild areas and are then brewed into a nourishing infusion that acts as a base for each bar.
Our soap is 100% natural, made with organic ingredients, palm oil free and vegan. We make each product with great care and hope that our soap will inspire people to take care of themselves and reincorporate the natural world back into their daily rituals.
