We live in a day and age where the technological advances are many. Many of these advances are there to make our lives easier. When it comes to skin care, and the ingredients you put on your skin, technology is probably not what you had in mind.
Commercially made soap usually contains detergents, fillers, chemicals, petroleum, high animal fat content, and irritants. Commercially made soap tends to be less eco friendly as well. While commercially manufactured soap usually costs less, the impact on your skin and the environment is less than desireable.
Natural handmade soaps are made with natural oils, have a high glycerin content, are better for the environment with no detergents or phosphates, and are never tested on animals.
Why handmade soap?
More natural. Handmade soaps are made with natural ingredients, not petro-chemicals or cheap additives.For example, we use natural ingredients like olive oil, shea butter, coconut oil, cocoa butter – just to name a few. Handmade soap has a naturally occuring glycerin which is known to be beneficial to the skin. Many soap manufacturers remove this valuable glycerin and repackage it within their more expensive line. We do not do this. As a matter of fact, we are not aware of any handmade soap manufacturers that remove beneficial ingredients. You get this skin loving glycerin in the handmade soap process – Almost like getting a 2 for 1. Why pay twice for something that you should only pay once for?
More quality. We use only top quality ingredients, many of which are food grade. If we can’t eat it, we wont use it*.
Essential oils / Scents. There are a vast variety of choices when it comes to handmade soap. From Lavender handmade soap, Orange Tangerine handmade soap – Lilly of the Valley, Cucumber Melon, Black Rasperry – Just to name a few. There is surely a nice selection to suit your taste.
Luxury. Once you try handmade soap, you may never go back. Handmade soap is very luxurious, has a creamy lather, and smells wonderful! Bath time has never felt so good!
Environmentally friendly: We create a mild soap that is tested on willing human participants, and NEVER on animals. No phosphates or detergents!
Quality control. Handmade soap manufacturers put a lot of care into their products. They take great pride in the handmade soaps that they make. They are thoroughly tested by willing volunteers, feedback is provided, and the product goes to market after all approvals and comments have been taken into consideration.
As you can see, using a natural product makes sense – Many of the ingredients are food grade, the soaps are highly aromatic with a wide variety of scents and essential oils to choose from.
*Handmade soaps are made with NaOH which is not to be eaten. This is the ingredient which combines with the oils to create a mild soap.
