Q: What is the difference between handmade soap and the soap that I buy at the grocery store?
A: Our handmade soap is made in small batches of quality vegetable oils and butters that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins & nutrients that are essential to healthy skin. All of our soap contains it’s natural occuring glycerin. Glycerin is a precious emmolient that softens & moisturizes skin. It is also a natural humectant that draws moisture to your skin making it feel more hydrated. Handmade soap produces a luxurious lather that is unparalleled to any other. The commercial soap that you can purchase at the grocery store is stripped of all its glycerin so that it can be used in more expensive creams and lotions, so it’s very drying to your skin. It also contains harsh detergents that have no benefits.
Q: Do you test your products on animals?
A: No. We do not test any of our products on animals. We only test our products ourselves . Our family and friends are also willing to make the “sacrifice” and help test our new products out. We also ensure that we source our materials from vendors that do not test on animals.
Q: Are your products all natural?
A: We carry many products that are all natural that use ONLY essential oils and no colorants or natural colorants. We DO use fragrance oils as well, but we ensure that they come from sources that thoroughly test them to be safe in bath and body products. The fragrance oils that we use are phthalate free. We only use colorants that are skin safe. Look for the “100% All Natural” tag under products that use no synthetics.
Q: Does your soap contain lye?
A: All true soaps are made with lye. NO LYE = NO SOAP. When lye is used in soap making, it is what is called a reagent. That means it is used in a chemical reaction to create other substances. In soap making, a carefully measured water & lye mixture is blended with natural oils in a process called saponification. Lye is simply an agent used to create soap from oils & water. The finished product contains NO lye. It’s simple. Without lye we wouldn’t have soap.
