Vitamin Sea Soap
All-Natural, Organic Soaps Handcrafted with Care by San Diego Homeless Youth
Supplement your skin routine with the crisp and delectable combination of apple blossom and spirulina we call Vitamin Sea.
Mixed with our softening blend of essential oils and shea butter, Vitamin Sea includes a dash of fir needles and spearmint to create a fresh and lively soap ideal as a gift for a loved one or a treat for yourself.
Using organic and all-natural ingredients, Vitamin Sea is handcrafted by our artisan Angels who are transitioning off the streets and into brighter futures by creating worthwhile experiences and learning valuable skills. This invigorating and refreshing cornucopia of scents isn’t just a delight for your bath – it’s for a good cause, too.
Vitamin Sea is created using a traditional, cold-pressed process that preserves the quality of ingredients to produce a soap with premium hydration and nourishing effects.
With your purchase of a bar of Vitamin Sea, you’re helping homeless teens and young adults transition off the streets and into sustainable jobs and long-term housing. Made with equal parts artistry and chemistry, these soaps are lovingly made by the 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.
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.
