Why choose handmade organic soap?

It’s simple. The ingredients! Always remember
that your skin will absorb what you put on it. We usually say: “If you wouldn’t
eat it, why put it on your skin?”

Today most people have never used handmade soap
before. In fact, most people have never used real soap before. Wait…what?

If you take a look at cleansing products sold
in stores, it’s likely you won’t find the term “soap” on the package. “Soap”
sold in stores is often made with chemical detergents, hardeners and synthetic lathering agents, which means they actually do not meet the definition of soap by the regulations of most national health agencies. 

Another crucial aspect is how compared to
handmade soap; conventional soap often dries out the skin.

This is because of the following two reasons; firstly, many of those
above-mentioned ingredients used in conventional soap lead to products that strip the skin of moisture and oils, creating dry or irritating skin. Secondly,
the glycerin has often been removed during the manufacturing process of
conventional soap, whereas handmade soap retains all the natural glycerin in the soap.  It is the glycerin that helps to attract moisture into the skin and hold it there.

We could list plenty more reasons why you should
choose organic handmade soap instead of conventional soap. So if you yet
haven’t tried handmade natural soap – what are you waiting for?

What do we mean when we say that our soaps are all natural?

After all, soap is a chemical compound made from oils, alkali and water - so what makes them natural compared to other cosmetic products?

When we say that our soaps are natural we refer to the fact that our products are safe and nontoxic, readily biodegradable, and they are free from artificial colors, fragrances, hardeners, latherers, preservatives, detergents and alcohols

Do our soaps contain essential oils or fragrance oils?

We choose only to use natural essential oils in our soaps and no synthetic fragrance oils. Basically, essential oils are
derived from plant parts whereas fragrance oils are blended with synthetic compounds or blended with an essential oil that may have been diluted with a carrier.

As all the scents are natural, they might not be as strong and develop when in use and over time the scent will fade.

NOTE: We advise people with seriously sensitive skin to avoid products containing essential oils (as they naturally contain allergens, you might prefer to stay away from them).

I have sensitive skin and can't use most soaps. Will I be able to use yours?

Yes, most likely you will be able to use all our soaps because they are incredibly gentle and contain relatively small amounts of essential oils. Basically all of our soaps are ideal for sensitive skin, but if you do happen to have hypersensitive skin, certain allergies or prefer to avoid any form of scent

If there are no preservatives, will my soap go bad?

As with the nature of all
natural materials, plant oil will become rancid with time. To prolong shelf life of your soap, you should keep the soap stored away from light, heat and humidity. With proper storage our soaps can be kept for over a year

How should I store my soaps?

Our soaps should be stored
in a cool, dark and dry location until being used. When using the soap, make sure to properly drain it and store it in a way so that it can breathe and get plenty of air flow from all sides in between uses. In this way you can prevent
it from becoming mushy.

Can I use your soaps on my face?

Yes! Our soaps are formulated to work for both face and body. Do note though, that your face generally is more sensitive than your body, so essential oils and butter/oils that may work well on your body, could be irritating on your face.

When using our soap for face cleansing we advise wetting your hands and face first, then wetting the bar, and then rubbing the bar in your hands for about 5-10 seconds before using the lather to gently cleanse.

Do I still need to moisturize my skin after using your soap?

A soap is after all a cleaning product. If you normally moisturize your skin after showering or cleansing your face, we would suggest continuing your ritual as usual after using our soap. For those who don’t moisturize, our soap won’t leave your skin dry and tight and it’s mild enough to be used on the face.

We’ve had several people claiming that our soaps have had such a moisturizing effect on their skin (hands, face and body), that they entirely stopped using lotion!

Help! My soap is turning into mush!

While cold process soap has many skin benefits, one downside is that cold process soap does not last as long in the shower as soap made from surfactants and detergents. To prolong use, do not let your soap drown in water. It is important to properly drain the soap after every use.

Are your soaps vegan?

Yes, they are 100 % vegan!
But we do also carry non-vegan soaps as well, so make sure you read the package

Does your soap contain palm oil? Yes!

Yes! But it’s done right! (PDR) Palm Done Right, we have partnered with this organization to promote a more environmentally conscious way of obtaining our Palm Oil. Here’s a little

Is there lye in your soap?

There is no lye in the finished soap, but you can’t have a bar of soap that didn’t contain lye in the process of making it. Lye reacts with the oils and butters through a chemical process called saponification and the result is soap

How long can one soap last?

Of course it depends how many people use it. We normally say that one soap lasts for one person for one month. Don’t let your soap drown in water, it's important to feed your soap
plenty of fresh air between uses. Store your soap on a well drained soap dish

I think I am allergic to your soap!

Botanicals carry allergens
in their natural state and may not be well tolerated by individuals with certain sensitivities – natural does not mean it’s safe for all. For example, people who are allergic to nuts should avoid products with nut ingredients such as almond oil or shea butter. We list all ingredients in our soaps for your convenience and if discomfort persists, please discontinue use and seek medical attention.

Are our soaps safe to use?

YES! We recommend our soaps
over the commercial branded items that may contain harmful synthetics.
