Why use handcrafted soaps?
1. INGREDIENTS: The very best reason to use handmade soap is the ingredients. Our handmade soaps are made of all organic vegetable oils that are rich in antioxidants, vitamins and nutrients that are essential to healthy skin as well as other organic ingredients. Handmade soap can not only improved your skin, but can change your lives by relieving you of itchiness, dryness and skin conditions such as eczema, psoriasis and acne. Everyone wants healthy skin and switching to daily use of handmade soap is the best place to start. If you need help finding the right soap for your needs, don’t hesitate to ask your soap-maker questions. We take pride in our ingredients and are excited to share our knowledge with you.
2. IT REALLY IS SOAP: It is commonly called soap, but that mass produced commercial stuff that you get at the grocery store is anything but. You have an array of personal cleansers to choose from that are labeled as deodorant soap, body bars, body washes and my personal nemesis the beauty bar. These are just chemical cocktails made of detergents and downright disturbing synthetic ingredients that dehydrate and age skin, cause allergic reactions and have been linked to various forms of cancer. Handmade soap is the real deal and one of the most appealing aspects is that harmful and unnecessary ingredients are NOT added to make it!
3. NO HARM: When you purchase handmade soap from your local soapmaker, you can be pretty certain that no humans were harmed, impoverished or subjected to sweat shop working conditions in the process. No communities or natural habitats were laid to waste by the run off from a some large chemical factory and we don’t use lab animals to test our products. I think I speak for all handmade soapmakers when I proclaim to you that we have the utmost respect for the earth and all of its creatures. Reverence to a kinder way of living is a big part of why we do what we do.
Can you make organic soap without lye?
No lye, no soap. It's a chemical process that combines the ingredients to form soap and glycerine. Properly made, there is no lye left at the end of the saponification process. However, if you want to make soaps without having to work with lye, you can use a melt-and-pour base or you can re-batch soap.
