There is freedom waiting for you on the breezes of the sky
and you ask “What if I fall?”
“Oh but my darling, what if you fly?”

Lion’s does not make the usual handcrafted soaps. Lion’s is different. Lion’s focuses on wellness and beauty, inside and out. Only ingredients with properties for health, well-being, and rejuvenating skin to optimum levels are used. Lion’s recognizes the difference natural and organic products can make upon the quality and length of one’s life and are aware that superior ingredients result in products that can effectively and safely encourage the restoration of vital biological processes to function as they should.
Our scents are real and unique. Essential oil combinations such as spicy, floral, green, and oriental fragrance our soaps.
Essential oils are potent and effective. Adding the most common essential oils like lavender, frankincense, lemon, peppermint, and tea tree oil to a bar can help fight cold and flu symptoms, relax sore muscles, help with skin conditions, help alleviate pain, balance hormones and more. Essential oils penetrate the skin barrier, enter the bloodstream and touch every organ before being exhaled through the lungs or kidneys. The essential oils and herbs in our soaps lend themselves to wellness.
High-quality paraben, phthalates free fragrances are sometimes used for notes that cannot be obtained in nature. Notes can reflect seasons, moods or favorite places.

About Our Shampoo Bars for Canines
Excerpts of an article written by The Environmental Working Group entitled, “High Levels of Toxic Industrial Chemicals Contaminate Cats And Dogs” is below.. the link to the complete article is in our Articles section.
“In the first study of its kind, Environmental Working Group found that American pets are polluted with even higher levels of many of the same synthetic industrial chemicals that researchers have recently found in people, including newborns. Dogs have been contaminated with 11carcinogens, 31 chemicals toxic to the reproductive system, and 24 neurotoxins. The carcinogens are of particular concern since dogs have much higher rates of many kinds of cancer than do people including 35 times more skin cancer, 4 times more breast tumors, 8 times more bone cancer, and twice the incidence of leukemia….” the article continues on listing diseases and their causes.
Scientists have directly linked an ever-growing list of pet health problems to the synthetics found in their personal products, because what we put on their skin is absorbed into their bloodstream affecting internal biological systems. People are waking up to these risks and are replacing synthetic laced products with healthy, superior choices.
With a focus on inner and outer wellness, our soap|shampoo bar for canines was created. It not only is a safe and effective alternative to chemical based dog shampoos, it is a performance infusion of 20 oils, butter, herbs, essential oils, and organic milk designed to help skin and coat acheive optimum health. This bar treats existing bodily issues, helping to prevent further issues. Moisturizers and emollients deeply cleanse and moisturize skin and coat replacing lost oils. The end result is soothed skin and a luxurious coat. We believe you and your pet will be pleased.
