Handcrafted Bar Soaps and Foaming Soaps
Soap is the product of the chemical process known a saponification. This occurs when an acid in the form of animal or vegetable fat (such as coconut oil) is combined with an alkaline solution made from sodium hydroxide (for bar soaps) or potassium hydroxide (for foaming soaps) and water.
Soap making can be thought of as two separate processes. The first phase breaks down the fat into fatty acids and glycerol, and splits the sodium or potassium hydroxide into sodium or potassium ions and water. The second phase combines the fatty acids and sodium or potassium ions. The end products are soap, glycerin and water. No measurable amount of the sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide is left in the finished product.
The soap cleanses and the glycerin moisturizes. The essential oils and selected herbs we add enhance these two properties of natural soap.
Why Handmade and not Commercial?
Most commercial soaps are synthetic detergents rather than made from natural fats or oils. Some commercial and glycerin bars may include alcohol, artificial fragrances and colors that can be drying or sensitizing to the skin. Sometimes, the naturally-occurring and moisturizing glycerin is removed from milled soaps, making them more drying than handmade.
Our bar soaps are handcrafted in small batches. They are clean feeling, long-lasting and great for sensitive skin. Our foaming soaps are cleanly formulated using only natural organic ingredients because your body deserves it. With the foam pump you'll use less and get more applications per container.
