Our soaps are handcrafted and exceptionally
formulated from scratch in small batches with luxurious, high quality food grade vegetable and
fruit oils. They are made the old-fashioned way which is called
"cold processed" in order to retain the natural essences of the ingredients to provide skin nourishing benefits. The base oils of each of our soap bars
contain a unique ratio of organic oils. We have chosen these oils for specific reasons
to offer your skin the best moisturizing and protective benefits while being
gentle to maintain clear and healthy skin.
- Olive oil is the main oil
of our soap bars. Olive oil is very high
in oleic acid which regenerates skin cells and attracts external moisture to
the skin. It contains vitamin E, omega-3 and omega-6 fatty acids.
Olive oil is gentle enough for sensitive skin to use to help prevent wrinkles,
dry skin, dry hair, and brittle nails.
- Coconut oil has mild
cleansing properties and is very rich in emollient fat which helps protect the
skin from the elements.
- Shea butter helps protect
against drying skin as it is rich in unsaturated fatty acids. It will not
clog your pores and has anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties.
Shea butter contains vitamin A, E, and F and has been known to help certain
skin conditions such as burns, sores, scars, dermatitis, psoriasis, eczema,
dandruff, dry flaking skin and stretch marks.
- Castor oil is very
moisturizing to the skin and has anti-inflammatory, disinfectant and protective
properties. It is used for its soothing, healing and pain relief for
In addition to all of those specific benefits mentioned about our soap bar base, each soap bar has it's own unique properties since we have added that combination with carefully selected therapeutic grade clays, flowers, herbs, salts and essential oils.
More Information About Our Soaps:
It is a slow process when we make our soap bars. We cure our soap bars for 8 weeks to ensure the evaporation of sodium hydroxide (lye) is complete and none is left in the finished product. Each bar weighs approximately 4 to 5 ounces (133 grams). All vary in colour and shape and each bar is slightly different looking than the other since they are all handmade; however all of the ingredients is sustainable and never changes so please do not be alarmed if your soap bar is not exactly as the picture shown. Each bar of soap is cut, trimmed, packaged and labelled by hand. They give off a rich, creamy lather which rinses clean leaving you with no soapy film residue and it will not dry out your skin.
All of our soaps can be used to shave with (for both ladies and gentlemen!) They make a wonderful lubricant between your skin and a razor while leaving your skin moisturized. You can use our soaps to wash your hair with if you choose too, (with the exception of our exfoliating bars) as they are ideal for this purpose and will rinse clean without drying your hair out.
Our non-exfoliant soaps are safe for a baby's tender skin as it is very gentle and mild; but we do not use the synthetic chemical "no-tears" detergent that is added to the commercial soap that provides the "no-tears" effect so please take care to keep it away from their eyes and yours to avoid stinging.
Almost all soap that is bought from manufactured stores is processed by machines formulated with detergents and chemical foaming boosters to create lather and bubbles. They do not contain the natural glycerin that is formed in the soap making process. It is stripped out and then sold as a by-product. Our handmade cold processed soap contains all of the natural glycerin that is formed in the saponification process and is left intact which will help keep your skin soft and healthy. Our soaps are NOT made by buying a melt and pour base and then adding synthetic scents and colours.
We test each batch of our cold processed soap and make sure that the pH level is neutral in between 7 and 8. These soaps are all PALM FREE, SLS FREE and PARABEN FREE. They are NOT tested on animals and contain NO animal ingredients, alcohol, foam boosters, synthetic fragrances, synthetic colourants or harmful preservatives.
