Ramblings of a soapmaker (forgive the saga, you don't have to read it but I felt the need to chat about this so take it or leave it as you choose)

It was recently brought to my attention that someone was disappointed that hideAWAY is "Not vegan free" . This made me smile, puzzled and perplexed all at the same time.

There's a lot to be gained from rational criticism but in this day and age more and more often it seems to me that people love to jump on the keyboard warrior train and complain or criticise - often out of ignorance or what I'll call "sheep syndrome" finding gratification in joining in if someone else has made a complaint publicly.

I just wanted to put it out that my attitude to soap is much like my attitude to people. I like black and I like white, I like every colour in between. I like large and I like small, I like traditional and I like quirky.

Much as I can be friends with you if you are gay or straight, I can enjoy a goats milk soap just as much as a vegan. 

Here at hideAWAY we try to accommodate everyone's soapy tastes. We do strongly believe in looking after our planet and sustainability.  No creatures (human or non human) have been harmed in the testing or production of our products. If you are Vegan - read the ingredients - you'll find we have soaps to suit you. If you prefer 'Vegan free" - we have soaps for you too. 

Peace to all on this wonderful day! I thought you might like the following quote to finish with

“In order to have faith in his own path, he does not need to prove that someone else's path is wrong.”
