The Info You're After

Need assistance? Before shooting over an inquiry, check out our answers to some of the most frequently asked questions below. If you can’t find the answer to your question here, get in touch with us.

Soap Care:

Like any bar of soap, all natural handmade bars prefer to dry out in-between uses. Do not leave your bar of soap in standing water; bottom of your shower or sink. To help them last longer, its best to use a draining soap dish to help prolong the life of your bars. You can purchase a soap rack here

About the Soap: 

Every bar made is hand cut and sizes can vary per bar. The images are for reference only. These are handmade items and I try my hardest to duplicate batches - it is not always possible. So please allow for slight variations. 

Soap Weight Notice:

Each bars weight can vary slightly due to them being hand cut and made in small batches. Most bars will weigh approximately 4.5 oz 

Soaps are weighed at the 6 week curing period. They can continue to lose weight as water can still evaporate as time goes by. But keep in mind, that soap is like fine wine, the older the bar is, the harder the bar gets and the longer it will last. 

Regulations:

Regulations set forth by the FDA prohibit bath and body companies from making health-related claims about beauty products. I am not a medical or healthcare professional and do not claim that the use of my products may have a positive effect on pre-existing physical and/or mental health conditions. The information in my listings pertains to the properties of specific ingredients used in the product. 

What is Sodium Hydroxide?

All soaps contain Sodium Hydroxide. Sodium Hydroxide is an essential ingredient of soap making because it is what causes Saponification. When flakes or beads of sodium hydroxide get added to a liquid, it forms a lye solution. Sodium hydroxide is a chemical compound that holds or maintains the pH of skincare products, also known as lye. Llye is needed for the chemical process that soap goes through, but it's NOT present in the final product.

 

What is "Cold-Process"

 

All soap is the result of a chemical reaction called "saponification" that occurs between lye and a fot or oil (such as Olive Oil or Coconut Oil. Cold-processed soap, in particular, allows the lye to be neutralized without any outside sources or heat. ICold-process soap is made by mixing sodium hydroxide (lye) with water, and blending it together with fatty oils, essential oils and colorants; mica powder, titanium dioxide or natural colorants such as turmeric, cocoa powder, and clays. This mix is then poured into molds and takes about 24-48hrs to cure before being cut into individual bars of soap. Although the soap can be used within a few days after curing, I prefer to let my soaps cure for 4-6 weeks. The longer the cure time, the harder the bar gets and the longer it will last. Once the process is complete, you can now use it! Or keep it on display in the guest bathroom! 

 

Which Oils are used in our soap?

 

We use oils that are well known for their nourishing, cleansing and anti-aging qualities; Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter, Cocoa Butter, Lard, Vegetable Oil. *Soaps do not contain all Oils listed above. They contain different combinations. 

 

Whoops!
