In 2019 my partner and I had the opportunity to visit the sweet sanctuary and meet the animals. It was life changing. We immediately fell in love with Pippa, Ellen (in the picture to the left) and all the animals and knew we wanted to support this sanctuary.

We learned that piggies like belly rubs, chickens are soft and, most importantly, that the owners of the sanctuary are the most caring, selfless and compassionate people we’ve ever met. Over the years we’ve seen how their compassion has known no limits.T hey’ve taken in new animals and provided them safe refuge.They’ve done everything they can to improve the lives of the animals in their care – like finding new and better feed for the piggies – like constantly expanding the meadows and pig forests for their animals. 

We are so proud to support The Sweet Sanctuary and every penny of profit we earn will always be raised #fortheanimals

UPDATED DISCOUNT! | saaboon 15% Off!


SAABOON is an all-natural, vegan soap boutique based in Ottawa, Canada. 

Using the traditional cold-process soap-making method, our handcrafted soaps are made from scratch in small batches to ensure consistent quality. We use only the best natural oils and do not use synthetic chemicals or foaming agents, artificial fragrance oils, artificial colourings, or any preservatives. And we are 100% against animal testing!

saaboon will now offer a 15% discount off all their beautiful soaps, balms, face oils, deodorants, bath salts,… to VegOttawa Association members! (This replaces the previous discount of 10%)

Why buy handmade soap vs. commercial soap? The answer is very simple, with handmade soap, you get exactly that – soap. Commercial soap are not always true forms of soap – they are often detergents. Detergents are petroleum-based products, filled with synthetic, harsh chemicals that will leave your skin feeling dry, itchy, and irritated. Most manufacturers also remove a large percentage of the glycerin from their soap because glycerin contains a high resale value. The glycerin is sold to other companies to make lotions and creams. Glycerin is the natural by-product in the soap-making process. It is a humectant (helps moisturize your skin). With handmade soap, all the glycerin is retained. Whereas with commercial soap the ingredients consists of animal fats and other chemicals that will often leave your skin irritated, our handmade soap are made with all-natural vegetable and fruit oils that not only cleanse but leave your skin nourished and moisturized.

We use only the best oils and butters to make our products — these include olive oil, coconut oil, argan oil, rosehip oil, jojoba oil, castor oil, cocoa butter, and avocado Oil.

Your satisfaction is extremely important to us. Our mission is to provide great quality products and excellent service.

Come visit our brick and mortar shop at 595 Gladstone Avenue, Ottawa, Canada.
