Something I hadn’t even really thought about was brought to my attention recently: soap. For some reason, I had totally forgotten that soap is made from animal by-products (tallow)… that kind of bugged me out that something like soap, which can be made almost as easily without any tallow, is concern for vegetarians. Leather is one thing because it’s obvious that it’s from an animal source, but soap?
So today I went out and picked up a couple bars of soap not made from an animal source. One is Kiss My Face brand Olive and Aloe soap (Kiss My Face can be found easily in most stores, as they make a lot of hand and face lotions) and a bar of Clearly Natural Cucumber soap. We’ll see how it works… so long, Irish Spring!
