{peaceful multitasking}

Tuesday, August 10, 2010



Kiss My Face has been a leader in the natural skin care market for several years now. They make several nice products, although my favorite from the line is the one I am currently using: Peace Soap in Grassy Mint.

I adore liquid castile soaps. These cleansers, made primarily of olive oil, are the ultimate in multitasking. You can use them to clean nearly everything from your hair to your dishes and lingerie. Peace Soap by Kiss My Face is like that, too. This product is more than your typical castile soap, though. This is soap for a cause called Seeds of Peace. This organization  "is dedicated to empowering young leaders from regions of conflict with the leadership skills required to advance reconciliation and coexistence," according to the website. 10% of all profits from the Peace line at KMF go directly to Seeds of Peace.


I recently had the chance to try this product and I really like it. It is fresh and invigorating. I love anything mint and this is a great pick me up at 7am in the shower, especially on a hot summer's day.


Kiss My Face says there are 101 ways to clean with this. While I haven't found 101 ways myself, I have taken some of the website's suggestions and tried this soap to do multiple cleaning and gardening tasks over the past few weeks. 


Here is how we've used it:


*Shampoo
*Body Wash
*Hand Soap
*Laundry Detergent
*Dish Soap
*Countertop Cleaner
*Tile Cleaner
*Wall Cleaner (non tile)
*Fruit and Veggie Wash
*In my foot bath pre-pedicure
*Flip Flop Cleaner for the kiddos' flip flops
*Kitchen Floor Cleaner
*Resin Lawn Chairs
*Car Wash
*Insecticide


The last one was a Kiss My Face website idea. We have a Purple Leaf Sand Cherry shrub in the garden and something was harming the leaves a few weeks back.  When I saw that this could be used on plants, I diluted some in distilled water and used a spray bottle to mist it on the leaves every few days. It worked!

I like the fact this this is a biodegradable, environmentally-friendly formula. I feel good about using this to wash the car because I don't worry about harsh chemicals hurting plant life or getting into the water supply. This is also free of sulfates, phthalates, parabens, and synthetic fragrances.


The bottle is large--34 ounces. It sells for $15.99. I have been using it daily for various things and have only gone about half way through the bottle. This is very long lasting!


The ingredients are also quite lovely. The main plus for me is that it is free of palm oil! What is in this? The ingredients are Water, Coconut Oil, Organic Olive Oil, Organic Hemp Oil, Xanthum Gum to thicken, and then essential or natural fragrance oils to scent the soaps. I do wish this also came in a truly fragrance free formula as well, but this is an extremely gentle formula. It leaves my skin soft and free of any irritation.


Special Savings:

If you use coupon code KMFPEACE at checkout on their website, they will also give you a free 17 ounce Peace Soap while supplies last.
