WHY DID YOU START MAKING SOAP THE WAY YOU DO?
Due to sensitive skin issues, I had to find soaps that
cleanse without the harsh chemicals. I also suffer
from migraines so it was also important for me to be
able to cont rol the kind of scents and additives that
were used. After many trials and errors, I found a solution for my issues and hope that it will be one for my customers as well.
IS YOUR SOAP ALL NATURAL OR ORGANIC
All ingredients used are natural. We try to use as much
organic ingredients as possible. Unfortunately the two
are usually thought to mean the same thing. Where an
ingredient cannot be found that is legally certified by
the USDA to be organic a natural ingredient is used.
IS LYE IN YOUR SOAPS, AND IS IT SAFE?
Lye is a very alkaline product that can damage your skin if it comes into contact with it All natural soaps are made
with lye. It is necessary for the chemical process called saponification that soap goes through. During
saponification, the reaction between the lye and the oils produces a product that is safe to use on skin. After this
process, no leftover chemicals or harmful substances remains in the finished product. Lye has been used for
thousands of years and is the most traditional and natural way to make soap.
WILL HANDMADE SOAP BE GENTLE TO MY SKIN?
The lack of harsh chemicals in natural handmade soaps allow them to clean your skin well without stripping it of it’s
natural oils or causing irritation.

considerations in mind as well as the environmental and social impact that sourcing the raw materials will have on
