How we got here:
My name is Christine De La Torre and I am the founder of Sunny Bunny Gardens. Several years ago I started gardening in our very small back yard. Getting “back to nature” and learning how to grow our own food inspired me to also make my own soap. My husband and I decided to move out of the suburbs and find a home with a bit more property so we could have a full size garden and a small orchard. Within weeks of moving into our new home with ¼ acres (just enough!) we had immediately built our raised garden beds and started planting about 30 fruit trees ranging from apples to almonds! While I was getting dirty knees and fingernails with soil, compost and veggie plants, I noticed that our cat Sunny Bunny was always following me around in the garden (supervised of course). He had never been outside until we moved to our larger property. Now, he was having just as much fun as I was! He would be right beside me as I was on my knees planting, pulling weeds or sifting compost. He would chase lizards, leap for butterflies or just roll around in the hay sunning himself - Sunny Bunny quickly became my Garden Buddy, hence the name Sunny Bunny Garden’s.
I first started creating all natural soaps for myself and a few friends who either had chemical sensitivity, extreme dry skin or just a preference for an all natural soap. The reviews were wonderful, enthusiastic and all wanted more soap in many other fragrances. I knew I accomplished something special that I wanted to share with others. It has always been my mission to stand up for an all-natural, cruelty-free life style. Sunny Bunny Gardens is my way of making a contribution to a healthier and more pleasing life, and helping toward keeping animals safe from cruelty. If you are looking to treat yourself or someone you love with a beautiful piece of nature, you should know I built Sunny Bunny Gardens with you in mind.
A Little About My Soaps:
My soaps are composed of 100% all natural ingredients which are completely biodegradable and safe for all skin types. All ingredients are hypoallergenic and vegetable-based, and do not include parabens or SLS. Any fragrance oils used to enhance any of my soaps are skin safe and phthalate-free, and all colorants used are FDA certified safe for cosmetic, bath and skincare use. Of course as with all skincare products, discontinue use if you experience any irritation. Please note that when soap is made by natural methods, you MUST use sodium hydroxide. There just isn't really any other way to make a "soap." Once the bars have been made, sodium hydroxide is no longer found in them, due to the reaction it made with the oils to create "soap."
A Note About Soap Sweat:
My all natural ingredient soaps do not contain chemicals that keep them from sweating, so it is completely normal for soap to sweat or produce “soap crystals.” Sweating depends on the level of moisture (humidity) in the air where you live. Your soap comes sealed to protect it from the elements so that you can keep it on display until you’re ready to use it, though soap crystals can form on the bar within the packaging as the temperature outside fluctuates. The sweat you may experience where you live is natural for all natural soap and does not affect the quality or usability in any way; it is completely normal and safe! You can help reduce sweating by keeping your soap wrapped until use, and then keeping it as dry as possible when it’s not in use.
Starting in 2015, Sunny Bunny Garden's will be donating a portion of all our sales to our favorite animal charity, Best Friends Animal Sanctuary. This wonderful animal sanctuary is very dear to our heart and we are very excited to help out every way we can. In 2016 we met a local horse rescue organization, Toby's Legacy Equine Rescue. After volunteering several times and meeting the owner, Lisa Bone...we new that this was another rescue that we wanted to help. We donate another portion of all our monthly sales to Tobys.
Thank you and enjoy!
Christine D. & Sunny Bunny :)
