Pirate Booty Soap
All-Natural, Organic Soaps Handcrafted with Care by San Diego Homeless Youth
It’s the feeling of having smuggled the secrets of soft skin, buried within a bar of soap!
Pirate Booty isn’t made of silver and gold – it’s the hearty and aromatic fusion of black tea, spiced tobacco, oatmeal, and spirulina handcrafted with soft oils and lush, organic ingredients. This soap’s oils – avocado, meadowfoam seed, coconut, palm, and rice bran – are blended with rich shea butter to nourish and smooth even the toughest pirate’s rugged skin.
Aye, this soap does more than produce soft, treasurable skin: it helps transition teens and young adults off the streets and into a more promising future.
Handcrafted by our Angels using a traditional, small-batch cold process, Pirate Booty uses all-natural and organic ingredients to make one uniquely artisanal soap.
With your purchase of a bar of Pirate Booty soap, you’re helping homeless youth learn valuable skills and gain worthwhile experiences with the goal of obtaining sustainable jobs and stable housing. Equal parts artistry and chemistry go into our all-natural and organic soaps, all made by Angel artisans who learn the trade through our program.
A Sensory Experience
- 8 West’s premium, handcrafted soaps provide deep hydration with long-lasting moisturizing and anti-aging elements
- Our cold process completely preserves the luxurious natural and essential oils, intensifying the fragrance of our carefully-selected natural extracts
- The end result is amazingly silky soap that draws impurities from the skin, softens even the roughest patches, and gently cleanses the face and body
Our soaps are handcrafted using the traditional small-batch, cold-press process that has been passed down through generations to create the highest quality soap for ultimate hydration. Our process doesn’t involve high temperatures in order to cure the bars. It’s a technique known to be one of the best ways to preserve a soap’s natural, premium ingredients, resulting in an extremely soft finish and the ability to allow more artistic effects in each bar’s unique aesthetics.
In 2015, we launched 8 West as a job training program paired with the Urban Street Angels’ supportive housing program. Based on our evidence-based practice, featuring a harm reduction model with trauma-informed care, 8 West provides transitional employment opportunities in our social enterprise startup. Above all else, 8 West provides the critical solutions our community needs to help end youth homelessness with a #HandUp.
