WHAT IS COLD-PROCESS SOAP?
The cold-process method is a soap making process that preserves all the beneficial properties of the oils and butters. Each soap bar is cured for at least four to six weeks to ensure chemical stability and that natural glycerine is produced during saponification (soap-making process). Natural glycerine is moisturizing, soothing, and hydrating for the skin and many soap manufacturers remove glycerine during saponification to use in more expensive lotions. Harsh chemicals and synthetic lathering agents are often added to create hard, lasting bars. As a result, many commercial products are actually detergents and cannot legally be classified as “soap”; instead, they are often labeled as “beauty bars” or “body bars.”
ARE YOUR PRODUCTS ALL-NATURAL?
Yes. All our products are handmade using high quality oils/butters and scented with natural essential oils. They are handcrafted in small batches made completely from scratch. All products are made without any parabens, artificial colorants, synthetic fragrances and/or preservatives.
CAN I USE YOUR PRODUCTS IF I HAVE SENSITIVE SKIN?
Yes! Our products are formulated with natural plant-based oils and butters like shea and avocado that should be gentle even for those with sensitive skin. However, we always recommend that you test the products first on a small area (i.e. washing your hands with our soap bars before using in the shower) before using on your face/body.
