  • RATIONAL CREATURES bar soap is a lovely fresh scent with notes of bergamot, apricot, and currant. The bar depicts a scene of wild ocean currents, strong and willful. These are not calm waters! Mrs. Croft would be right at home.

  • INSPIRATION for RATIONAL CREATURES soap:

  • “But I hate to hear you talking so like a fine gentleman, and as if women were all fine ladies, instead of rational creatures. We none of us expect to be in smooth water all our days.” ~Mrs. Croft, from Jane Austen’s Persuasion, published 1817.

  • “Make women rational creatures, and free citizens, and they will quickly become good wives; – that is, if men do not neglect the duties of husbands and fathers.” ~Mary Wollstonecraft, A Vindication of the Rights of Women  published 1792.

  • Let us all be rational creatures and navigate our path into the current.

  • This soap is inspired by Persuasion.
