All my soaps are genuine soaps made from natural oils and lye.
We do not offer any products made with synthetic detergents.
All genuine soap is the result of a chemical reaction called saponification. During saponification sodium hydroxide or potassium hydroxide (both inorganic substances) react with oil to form soap and glycerin. Because it is the result of a superimposed chemical reaction soap is not organic by strict definition even if it is made with organic ingredients. I do use some organic ingredients in my production but our products do not have organic certification.
How To Care For Your Handcrafted Soap:
Your bar of handcrafted soap is precious. It’s a luxury product made with high quality ingredients and you want the most out of it. By taking proper care of your soap you can add a lot to its lifespan.
A handcrafted bar of soap sitting in a puddle of water will soon become soft and mushy. So, the trick is to keep the soap as dry as possible making sure that it air-dries between uses.
Never let the soap swim in the bathtub or lie in a pool of water in an untrained soap dish. And don’t keep it where the showerhead can spray water directly on it. Use a draining soap dish (a slatted wooden dish is good or stand the soap on a soap save with nobs. You can also pull a rope, ribbon or string through the soap and hang it in a well-ventilated spot between uses. Alternating between a couple of bars letting each one dry completely between uses is ideal.
Unused soap should not be stored in a bathroom but in a cool, dark and dry place, a linen closet or a pantry drawer being perfect options.
