Certified B Corporations are a new kind of corporation that uses the power of business to improve environmental and social issues. To quote from the B Corp Declaration, these companies “envision a new sector of the economy which harnesses the power of private enterprise to create public benefit. This sector is comprised of a new type of corporation – the B Corporation – which is purpose-driven, and creates benefit for all stakeholders, not just shareholders.”
B Corps are important because, as change agents, they inspire all businesses to compete not only to be the best in the world, but to be the best for the world.
B Corps are leading a global movement to redefine success in business by voluntarily meeting higher standards of transparency, accountability, and performance.
The B Corp certification is an independent, third party endorsement and a public declaration of the values, mission and systems that underpin our entire business. Our mission is to promote health and well-being while reducing the inflated costs, waste, harmful chemicals and excess consumerism in personal care.
All B corps are certified by the nonprofit B Lab. To become certified, a company must meet B Lab’s comprehensive Performance Requirements, which measure the company’s impact on all stakeholders, including workers, suppliers, community, customers and the environment. Meeting or exceeding these requirements becomes a formal (legal) commitment with B Corp Certification.
Today, there is a growing community of more than 2,100 Certified B Corps from 50 countries and over 130 industries. They include Patagonia, Seventh Generation, Whole Foods and Dr. Bronners to name a few.
We scored high on ingredient and product safety (organic certification for many ingredients, non-toxicity, biodegradability, cruelty-free, responsible sourcing). The assessment also recognized our contribution to waste reduction resulting from our customers using fewer—i.e. a smaller volume of—personal care products, and therefore less packaging too.
We received significant points for our supplier selection. We source shipping boxes from a certified minority-owned packaging company that provides our 100% recycled paperboard boxes; our soap manufacturer is a certified organic facility; as is our toothpaste and skin fuel manufacturer. Our suppliers are independently owned too.
Because we try to integrate our commitment to a positive impact in all our business decisions, our offices are in the Boulder Impact Hub – an international network of co-working spaces dedicated to sustainable businesses and a fellow B Corps.
While we are proud of the positive impact we are achieving already we strive to continually improve our performance.

Minimalist, healthy, all-in-one soap/shampoo/shave lotion bar lasts a long time. Skin and hair oil is soothing, really helps counter the Colorado dryness.
My face is super dry, and my skin is extremely sensitive, so I can't use a lot of products. I use Skin Fuel on my face with no issues! Yay, my skin doesn't hate me now!
The toothpaste did take a little bit to get used to. But now that I am used to it, I love it. My teeth feel so much cleaner and also seem to stay much cleaner during the day. I switched to this toothpaste because I have two teeth with the gums receding a bit and so far this is the only toothpaste that has helped the situation instead of irritating it. I highly recommend this toothpaste. Do their two week challenge to allow yourself to adjust to it and I'm sure you'll really start to like it and appreciate the differences it offers for teeth health compared to traditional, or even some of the other natural toothpastes.
I use this on my infant daughter’s eczema and it works to smooth and heal her lesions. Thank you!
This is skin magic. Even in winter when all the things are dry and cracking, this is liquid wonder.
Love, Love my Akamai 3 in 1 bar. I have used it to shave & to shower but decided my #1 use is to shampoo with it! I have long hair & can't believe that I don't even need conditioner!
I was a little concerned when I saw the size of the bar but it turns out that it lasts forever. I only use it as soap, not a hair product. I combine it with the skin fuel and I do think my skin feels more hydrated and less sensitive. Dry itchy patches are gone!
My daughter referred me to this toothpaste. I have always used natural toothpaste, but I really like this one and can see it is making a difference in my teeth. I will not go back to other brands.
While it took a little getting used to, it was well worth it! Now I can't stand the taste of fake minty toothpaste. My mouth feels SO much cleaner with Akamai Mineral Toothpaste, and my dental hygienist said my mouth looks better than ever! I bought a tube for my son and daughter to try, too. This is GREAT stuff!
I had a small growing cavity that my dentist was watching but on my last cleaning he kept looking for it and even made me get x-rays cause he didn't understand what happened. Two months brushing with Akamai, and it made my cavity disappear. Thank you!
