This is special because...
A BIPOC-owned micro-business, ALTR creates hand-made bar soap with local, wildcrafted botanicals. Maker/owners Amina and Joe seek to change popular soap culture (i.e., alter) by offering products that showcase local plants, and, in this way, elevate (i.e., put on an altar) the seemingly mundane task of washing oneself into a ritual reconnection to the land that sustains us.
All of the main botanical elements are grown or responsibly wildcrafted by ALTR and then brewed into a nourishing infusion that acts as a base for each bar.
