Fabulous Customer Reviews

  • A Happy Bug Off Bar Customer...

    "We were at a party last night right on a lake. Someone had a bug bar shaped like a bee. Of course it was adorable! Also, highly effective!!!!! I typically get eaten alive by mosquitos and realized today that I didn’t even get bitten even once. Definitely worth purchasing one!"

  • An Overall Satisfied Massage Soap Bar Customer...

    "I haven’t loved body care items this much in a long time. Everything is of the highest quality and I can’t wait to try more. From the massaging soap bars to the moisturizer in the Christmas shopping will be a breeze this year!"

  • A Pleased Pregnant Mom & toddler...

    "I have tried several products from DC body bar and I am VERY IMPRESSED. I'm currently pregnant, and a little on the "crispy" side (as I like to call it compared to the term "crunchy") and really love the lotion and soap bars. I try to avoid as many chemicals as I can when I'm pregnant and these products are really hydrating. My 2.5 year old daughter also loves her little heart soaps in the bath tub and they don't irritate her skin AT ALL! LOVE LOVE LOVE!!"


What is a lotion bar and how do you use it?

Lotion in a solid form. The lotion bar glides gently over your skin using the heat of your body as a catalyst. Simply hold the bar against your skin for a few seconds to warm it up and apply it to the areas you desire.  Because our lotion bars are designed to be intensely hydrating, a little goes a long way. You may want to rub the lotion in further with your hands depending on the amount you use.  Our lotion bars contain natural butters and oils so it is best to avoid staining clothes by allowing time to absorb into skin before touching fabrics .  Avoid eye contact. For external use only.

What does DC Body Bar mean by the term "ethically crafted"?

We are compliant with California Prop 65, the strictest regulations in the USA for Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement

We use high-quality proprietary blends of 100% pure therapeutic grade essential oils for beneficial properties and scenting our products. We do use a small percentage of fragrance oils in noted bath bombs, lip balms and custom orders items upon request. These fragrance oils are approved by the FDA and follow California Prop 65 guidelines. We are transparent in noting the use of flavor oils and non-toxic colorants in the product descriptions on our web pages in the small percentage of products where we use them.

No animal testing-Cruelty Free

Nut free options available to substitute for products containing Coconut Oil & Shea butter

NO gluten, nanoparticles  or detergents

Colors in our products are the result of natural clay combinations and plant powders.  We do have vibrant non-toxic liquid colorants available for custom order requests and in the Custom Order Collection.

All of our products are vegan with the exception of those containing beeswax, honey or goat's milk.  Plant-based substitutes for beeswax are available upon request along with vegan substitutions for honey and Goat's milk. 

NO PESTICIDES in our Bug Off Bar or any of our products

All products are handmade in small batches

What is the best way to care for DC Body Bar Products?

SOAP: We recommend storing your soap on a DC Body Bar Wooden Drying Ladder. The ladder allows the bottom of your product to thoroughly dry after each use.  We do not recommend leaving soap on a flat surface, or in contact with water, between cleansing as it shortens the life-span of the product.  

LOTION BARS:  We recommend housing your lotion bars in the original tin and storing in a cool dry place. Lotion bars could potentially melt if exposed to temperatures exceeding 80-85 degrees for an extended time.  

Is there an expiration date for DC Body Bar products?

We recommend that lotion bars be used within 3-6 months of purchasing and soap bars be used within a year of purchasing.

Can I go through airport security with DC Body Bar lotion bars and products?

As of today, DC Body Bar products have made it through airport security!  This is one of the reasons we created our products.  We wanted to offer a non-liquid body care alternative for travel; especially for shampoo, conditioner and lotions, as well as portable storage, recyclable and reusable packaging. We would appreciate you contacting us if you do have issues carrying our products through airport security anywhere in the world.  

Will DC Body Bar customize products?

We do receive requests for DC Body Bar product variations on shapes, sizes and scents. Customers desiring specialized versions of our DC Body Bar products, or bulk order inquiries, should click the CONTACT link in the menu bar to request a custom quote.  Creativity inspires us so we will do our best to accommodate your vision at a reasonable rate.
