Ending a day of camping or backpacking covered in sweat, dirt, grease and sunscreen is never fun.

Apple Valley Natural Soap’s Limited Edition Camping Shampoo and Body Bar gives you a quality clean for a low cost!
Why Use A Natural Soap For Camping?
There are a lot of specialty liquid camping soaps on the market that focus on being biodegradable and multi-purpose. We think that’s great, and we also think you deserve a quality body and shampoo soap that not only keeps your hair and skin moisturized, repels bugs with its essential oil blend, and is biodegradable, but is also light-weight, efficient, and long-lasting. This is what our Camping Shampoo and Body Bar has to offer. The rectangular, compact shape of a bar soap fits in your pack and you never have to worry about leaks in your bag! Make sure you use our natural, biodegradable soaps 200 feet from any body of water in order to let the soap properly filter back into the earth.

Sunflower oil is FANTASTIC because it is a 0 on the comedogenic scale, which means it won’t clog pores. This oil can be used to moisturize any skin type…and that isn’t all it will do!
According to an article on Healthline, sunflower oil contains antioxidant vitamin E, so applying it topically to skin will allow your skin to benefit from vitamin E (think anti-aging properties, protection from sun-damage…all that awesome stuff). Sunflower oil also contains linoleic acid, an important component of helping the skin retain moisture as well as acting as an anti-inflammatory aid.
Shea Butter is fantastic for skin, in fact, we think it’s SO AWESOME that we sell USDA CERTIFIED Organic Raw Unrefined African Shea Butter just on its own. Why? WHY?

Unrefined Shea Butter is loaded with natural vitamins A, E, natural antioxidants and fatty acids for maximum natural moisturizing power, it is an amazing body healer. Try it to help treating skin conditions such as dry skin, eczema, rashes, stretch marks, and burns.
