Product Details

All-Natural, Organic Soaps Handcrafted with Care by San Diego Homeless Youth

Sandy Bottom is an exotic blend of Moroccan red clay, Tahitian tiare flower, shea butter, and calendula. Infused with a bouquet of invigorating essential oils and a moisturizing concoction of avocado, rice bran, and meadowfoam seed oils, this soap will gently tone, rebalance, and exfoliate your skin – all for a good cause.
With such a sensual combination of all-natural and organic ingredients, it’s impressive that Sandy Bottom accomplishes much more than renewing your skin: it helps youth transition off the streets and into sustainable jobs and housing.
With your purchase of a bar of Sandy Bottom soap, you’re helping homeless youth learn valuable skills and gain worthwhile experiences to get off the streets and into a brighter future. Equal parts artistry and chemistry go into our all-natural and organic soaps, all made by our Angel artisans who gain experience 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.
Since 2008, the volunteers of Urban Street Angels have been walking the streets, parks, and beaches in our community, providing homeless youth with meals, water, hygiene kits, socks, sleeping bags, backpacks, and referrals to community resources. The goal of Urban Street Angels is to help homeless youth establish a foothold that gets them off the streets. We’ve learned that disrupting the pathway to chronic homelessness with innovative, sustainable solutions is the key.

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.
