About LEAP Organics

LEAP Organics is an organic soap and skincare company that believes in harnessing the purity of the best things in nature, and then giving something back. LEAP’s philosophy is that healthy skin starts with healthy ingredients: all of LEAP’s products are USDA certified organic and/or made with organic, 100% plant-based, biodegradable, and cruelty-free. LEAP also proudly lists every ingredient on its product labels and website. The company has one of the only complete USDA certified organic skincare lines in the country, and LEAP’s organic bodycare line - which includes bar soaps, hand soaps, body washes, body powders, and lip balms – makes both your skin and Mother Nature very happy! 

LEAP’s sustainable business practices start – first and foremost – with the philosophy that being a sustainable company means using sustainable ingredients. For this reason, LEAP uses certified organic ingredients that maintain the integrity of the land and the purity of LEAP’s products. In addition, LEAP also uses recycled/recyclable packaging, sources renewable energy (both directly and indirectly through offsets), and gives back to their local communities. As a member of 1% For The Planet, LEAP donates a minimum of 1% of sales to environmental non-profits, some of which have included Clean Air-Cool Planet, Student Conservation Association, Trees For The Future, and the Appalachian Mountain Club. 

LEAP Organics became a B Corp to formalize its founding commitment to sustainability. LEAP believes the transparency and accountability of the B Corp certification process helps to clearly distinguish companies that are truly committed to a cleaner and healthier world and to provide a framework upon which they can keep improving.
