FAQ

I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN.  IS HANDMADE SOAP SAFE TO USE?


Absolutely!  Our soaps are ideal for all skin types! Most likely, you will be able to use our soaps because they are incredibly mild and gentle.  Most commercial soaps are detergent based, using lots of synthetic ingredients that can cause skin irritations and reactions. We always test out all of our recipes extensively with willing participants before ever releasing a product to our customers. Our products are NEVER tested on animals. We recommend trying our products out on a small area of your body to test for sensitives to fragrances or all natural oils that we use. Shea Butter is a common allergy if you're allergic to latex or tree nuts. We will always provide a full ingredient list for all of our products.

Our Artisan Bars are sometimes super chunky and big slices. If you find that they are too big to fit in your hand. Feel free to carefully cut in half and use for two different bathrooms/uses if you would like.

If you have allergies to fragrances you can feel free to try our Unscented bars, Natural, or our 100% Olive Oil Castile Soaps. We also create unscented lotions and body butters.

WHAT IS HANDMADE SOAP?


Soap is a combination of distilled water (or other liquid used), lye (sodium hydroxide) and oils.  When the lye solution is mixed with oils, it causes a chemical reaction called "saponification".  The result is 3 parts soap and 1 part glycerin: which is desired for it's ability to moisturize the skin. 

Properly handmade soap contains NO LYE in the end product.  You can't make real soap without lye. 

No Lye = No Soap

WHAT IS "SUPERFATTING"?


Superfatting means that a certain percentage of oils have been left unconverted by the lye.  This is done by discounting the amount of lye in our recipe.  It leaves extra moisturizing oils in the soap for your skin to use along with the naturally occurring glycerin and ensures a safe, milder bar of soap.
