Veil & Dagger / Wooly Beast Naturals was formed by Skylar and Trevor Bittinger in 2014 when they began the process of ridding their home of any harmful chemicals in cleaners, candles, soap, etc.
Soy candles was an easy choice as soy wax burns cleaner and longer than paraffin, is eco-friendly, is an excellent fragrance carrier, and is never tested on animals as it is made from soy beans. And when we started, boy did our kitchen smell good!
Soap was next. A lot of conventional 'soap' that is available in stores is made with chemicals that will dry out your skin. So then a lot of people will also use other products to replenish and moisturize skin afterwards. Most conventional soap is made with animal fat and chemicals, and these chemicals strip your skin of its natural oils. Ever get out of the shower after using these products and your skin feels tight and dry? That's why.
Veil & Dagger and Wooly Beast natural soap is vegan, and made with natural products using the cold process method. It is very moisturizing and can even be used to wash your hair.
Veil & Dagger / Wooly Beast Naturals is an independent business. Our products are handmade, and our commitment to quality, eco-friendly materials and process is at the forefront of our business model.
Our Beard Oil is all natural as well, made from the same unique fragrance and essential oil blends in our natural bar soap and soy candles. Great to help moisturize the facial hair and skin and is one of the keys to a healthy and great looking beard.
Veil & Dagger products are handcrafted in small batches in the Pacific NW, vegan, cruelty-free, phthalate-free, no palm oil. Our candles are made with 100% U.S. farm sourced soy wax.
All Veil & Dagger products are handmade, sometimes with the help of a laser and assembled by hand, like with our jewelry collection, but always produced by humans with a loving touch.
