Since 2015, Alluvian has done more than refine an old tradition: We’ve started a new one. Guided by the love of natural skincare, the ocean, travel and endurance, Alluvian manufactures small batch aquatic botanical soap and grooming products in Kansas City. Drawing from traditional practices and enhancing with organic and geologic elements, this transformative collection of body products is well suited for modern society. Enjoy!
Like the ocean, you cannot see across and they regulate climate. There was a time, not too long ago, when oceans didn’t contain plastic. It was this unfathomably massive landscape, an endless horizon. Early sailors believed these were the gateways to the end of the world.
Modern containers for personal care and grooming products have serious repercussions to not only oceans, but humanity. We now consume the very chemicals the plastic containers our body-wash, shampoo, deodorant, and other personal care items are derived through bioaccumulation in food chains as well as direct leaching from product packaging. Researchers have discovered that the negative effects of chemicals including Bisphenol A and phthalates are powerful endocrine disruptors and are linked to health problems such as decreased fertility. Micro-plastics can even be found in our commercial sea salt. By 2050 there will be more plastic in the ocean than fish if we continue this global trend.
Alluvian offers premier solutions to a more sustainable and plastic free lifestyle. Our product lines represent not only affordable luxury but a conscious choice to eliminate plastic and try to reduce some environmental ills that grow by the day. Our products and packaging are free of plastic and are recyclable, biodegradable, or a combination of both.
