Soap For Your Soul
Pure. Natural. Handmade. Soaps.
Luxury Soaps handmade in small batches the old fashioned way.
I've been making soap for over 20 years, creating artisan bars using the cold process method of soapmaking.
I start with a pure vegetable oil recipe and whip it into soaps the way gramma used to do - Thick rich bubbles and clean, fresh skin...
Big beautiful bars are ramped up with delicious scent blends, beautiful colors and designs you have to see to believe!
Your skin is your largest organ. It's made to produce a conditioning oil called sebum. You need that. It's like your body's natural lotion. Think a bit about what are you rubbing, scrubbing, lathering, and massaging into your skin on a daily basis.
Most commercial soaps aren't really soaps at all. They are detergents, fillers, and fragrances with names you have a hard time sounding out, let alone reading and understanding. After doing a bit of research on the subject of skin, what it does, and what we put on it, you'll find that a lot of those ingredients are actually bi-products of the oil industry.
Petroleum products are made from crude oil. The environmental impact of petroleum products is astonishing. The poisonous effect that these chemicals have when using them daily, in several different products, and again to "wash off" those products ALSO cannot be ignored.
Liquid body washes and lotions are full of all kinds of nasty stuff, too. There's the sulfates, parabens, and artificial colors that wreak havoc in your body's world, and to cover the smell of all those chemicals, they add generous amounts of synthetic fragrances that present a whole new concoction into the mix.
We make soap the old fashioned way.
Using oils, butters and waxes from renewable vegetable sources that are known for their skin benefits, we use the cold and hot process of soap making to create a sudsy soap that lathers thick and rich. Using oils like olive and soy which both add to the skin benefits and the bar benefits of Soap for your Soul. Palm oil is a vegan alternative to the traditional tallow or lard, and makes a nice, hard, long-lasting bar of soap. One of the most important oils we use is coconut. It gives our soaps that thick rich lather with beautiful fluffy suds. We only use essential oils or phthalate-free fragrance oils for scent. These are noted in each soap's description, and comprise less than 1% of our recipes.
We make soap that's healthy.
Natural soap gently cleans away dirt and excess oils without stripping your natural layer of sebum. That's it. No curing, healing or fixing...That will happen naturally when you ease into rehab for your skin's chemical addiction. Using natural soap is an easy way to clean your skin, without stripping your skin of it's natural moisturizers and protectants. Even people with oily skin need some of their natural oils left in place, and those with dry or sensitive skin sure don't want petrochemicals washing away all their natural protection from the very things that are irritating them in the first place...
