Why would you pay for handmade bar soap? Well, first off you can read and pronounce every single ingredient on my label. Every ingredient I use is high quality and designed to leave your skin soft and moisturized. Second is due to the fact that most commercial “soap” is actually detergent. Yes, it contains harsh detergent and surfactants that will strip your skin and leave it dry. Next is that often they include parabens, propylene glycol, and mineral oil (petrolatum). The big grocery brands will use all kinds of fancy words so you don’t know that you’re bathing in antifreeze and industrial lubricant. Then there’s the fact that you’re supporting a small business while also putting something you can feel good about using on your body. We only get one, so why not treat it like royalty!
Welcome to your new favorite soap! These handmade bars are fabulous for every day use or gift giving. I formulate my recipes with a very high amount of conditioning oils and butters. That results in a soap with tons of moisture and a rich lather.
I started making soap in 2012 after our newborn son developed severe eczema. After starting to read ingredient labels and do a little research, I found that most commercial “soaps” are actually detergents. They can contain tons of chemicals, most of which I couldn’t pronounce, and lots of synthetics. I decided I wanted to be in control of what we were putting on our bodies, and it shouldn’t result in dry, flaky skin.
These soaps have their ingredients listed individually as they will vary. Designs can change from batch to batch, as can the recipes. Please read the recipe to make sure you don’t have allergies to any of the ingredients. The lard I use is always from our own pigs.
