How are your soaps made?

Our soaps are made by the cold process method. Melted oils are mixed with sodium hydroxide without adding external heat until they reach a chemical reaction. This chemical reaction is called saponification, which means "turning into soap". The soap is poured into a mold where the saponification continues. After 24-48 hours, the soap is removed from the mold and is cut into bars. These bars are left to cure (harden) for 5-6 weeks.

Are your soaps suitable for sensitive skin?

Yes, they are. Our handmade soaps are void of synthetic ingredients. However, just because it is natural does not mean that someone could not be allergic to any of the ingredients. We list all our ingredients in each product and advise you to read them. If you are unsure if a vegetable oil, essential oil or botanical may cause an allergic reaction, we advise trying our Unscented Olive Soap.

How does your soap differ from other brands?

All soap is not created equal, which includes handmade soap. Ingredients are key. Therefore, we keep it all natural, using unrefined vegetable oils and butters, essential oils and botanicals. Most of our soap contains a high percentage of extra virgin olive oil and conditioning oils. Due to this, our soaps are extremely moisturizing and nourishing to the skin.
