Frequently Asked Questions

Why should I use your handcrafted soap over my regular soap bar?

Mass produced soap like dove aren't actually soap bars. They're detergent bars made from powerful chemicals that are not good for your skin. They also use strong synthetic fragrances that are hormone disrupting. Switch to our handcrafted soap and feel the difference. Your skin will thank you!

How is your soap made?

Soap is made with oils or fat, water, and lye. We use palm and coconut oils in most of our bars due to the great lathering characteristics these oils offer. We use water that is filtered through reverse osmosis to prevent any other chemicals through the water supply. Finally the lye is mixed for a process called saponification. We use a hot process which allows for the soap to be poured into a mold and ready to use in a couple of days.

What are the advantages of handcrafted soap?

Handcrafted soap is better for your skin, better for your health, and better for the environment.

Commercial soap is made with harsh synthetic chemicals that are not good for your skin or your health.

They cause harm to the environment in the manufacturing process as well as the run off into sewers when they are used.

Commercial soap bars contain parabens, phthalates, triclosan, phosphorus, and petrochemicals.

Why is your soap more expensive than the soap at the store?

Our bars are exactly what they say... Handcrafted.

Not only are we using natural ingredients which cost more than synthetic chemicals, we are also making our soap in small batches to ensure quality.

Large store bought soap companies mass produce their bars in a chemical factory, we'll never be able to compete with their pricing.

Nor do we want to! The saying "You get what you pay for" is especially true when it comes to soap.

How long does your soap bar last in the bath or shower?

Our soap bars are approximately 4 ounces which equates to about 1 month of use for one person bathing regularly.
