All soaps are handmade in small batches, hand cut, packaged and labeled with love. Our soaps are cured for 4-6 weeks before being individually wrapped and delivered into your hands.

In order to get the most out of your soap, a soap dish that is elevated or drains water out is highly recommended so your soap has a longer life. Keep in mind your soap is made without any hardening agents, sodium lauryl (or laureth) sulfate (SLS, SLES), parabens or any other chemical.

 

BASE & BUTTERS OILS  - We use a variety of oils and butters but our main oils used consist of:

Sunflower oil – softens, moisturizing and rich in vitamins A, D and E and Oleic acid, which help create a moisturizing, nourishing and conditioning bar with stable lather.

 

Avocado oil – make soaps rich and very moisturizing. It contains vitamins (A, D and E), protein, lecithin and monounsaturated fatty acids, which make it beneficial for people with dry skin or eczema as it soothes and softens skin.
