Simplí is a Gaelic word for simple and straightforward. I strive to create basic, “good for you” skin products with natural, responsibly cultivated, high-quality ingredients such as organic and essential oils and butters, herbs, spices and clays. I also like to use a variety of liquids in my soaps, such as wine, beer, aloe, ocean water, tea and coconut milk (among a lot of other options).
For many people the comparison between artisan and mass-produced products is a no-brainer: Simple ingredients without parabens, phthalates, synthetic hardeners and chemicals just seems to make sense when it comes to our skin. I make mostly vegan products in small batches; I say mostly because sometimes I include honey, beeswax or organic Greek yogurt. I select only the finest butters and oils available (organic whenever possible) with a variety of skin-loving benefits. Some of my favorites: olive oil, coconut oil, castor oil, almond oil, shea butter, avocado oil, cocoa butter, mango butter, safflower oil, rice bran oil…just to name a few.
I try to stay natural, often using herb, root and spice infusions and clays for color. However I occasionally use mica powder for some colorants; these are finely ground minerals—some with cosmetic-grade colorants and pigments (Federal Food, Drug and Cosmetic Act-approved as safe). Cosmetic-grade fragrance oils are also sometimes used, as some people want a scent with more longevity or request scents that are not found organically/in nature. Every fragrance oil I purchase is phthalate-free.
All of my products are made by me—using my tested recipes—incorporating the best-quality ingredients that feel good and smell good! Bottom line is that we all want our skin to feel amazing…simplí.
The soap—WOW! My skin is so soft. No ashy legs and arms. Thank you SO much!!~ Andrea B.
Simplí + Giving Back
Lyme Bytes Bars
The number of diagnosed Lyme Disease cases is alarmingly on the rise for this incredibly misunderstood and complex disease. I know because I was diagnosed with late-stage Lyme early in 2019 after begging for tests to determine why I felt so crappy for two years. So I decided to create the “Lyme Bytes” soap bars to raise awareness and to raise some funds to help with education and advocacy; Simplí donates 50% of every “Lyme Bytes” bar sold to the Lyme Disease Association, and this is the second batch.

Blue Line Bars
The Simplí Blue Line series is comprised of various batches with different scents, with the same look and recipe. Simplí donates $3 to the Officer Down Memorial Page (ODMP) for every bar of Blue Line soap sold. ODMP is a national nonprofit organization dedicated to raise awareness and pay tribute to the more than 20,000 law enforcement officers who have died in the line of duty. Funds raised by ODMP also go to various programs, including officer safety. Simplí has sent checks to ODMP for 5 batches of soaps thus far. The latest batch just sold out—more coming.
