Give soap a chance

Give soap a chance

Give soap a chance…  After all these years in business, the most often asked question we hear remains, “Why is natural, handmade soap better?”

Here are 12 reasons why we love our handmade soap...

  1. Natural handmade soap is made with natural ingredients including. unrefined, organic virgin olive oil, butters and clays plus essential oils.
  2. Handmade soap is actually soap, made in a traditional way not commercial "soap" which are nothing more than detergents in disguise.
  3. Soaps which are handmade with essential oils have aromatherapy benefits. Step into the bath or shower and breathe deeply. The benefits of aromatherapy can help with everything from easing stress to invigorating your spirit.
  4. Handmade natural soap is plenty of rich, silky bubbles. Nature’s ingredients like coconut oil and olive oil as well as the retained natural glycerine also help create a rich silky lather. The creamy silky lather from a natural soap is much richer than commercial soap.
  5. They are made with nothing but the ingredients needed... no synthetic added extras, colours or foam boosters.
  6. Handmade soaps retain their glycerine which is a precious and gentle emollient that creates a moisturising protective layer on the skin.
  7. Due to the high level of plant oils and butters, soap is great for the skin
  8. Simple no fuss packaging as well as vegan and cruelty-free.
  9. If you use a liquid body wash the main ingredient is water. You pay for water. A properly cured soap bar has very little water remaining, meaning you are getting exactly what you pay for.
  10. No single-use plastic, no nasty chemicals, and cheaper to ship making less of an impact on the planet.
  11. Handmade soap is a labour of love, it takes time and effort to create. It is the total definition of artisan. 
  12. Your purchase really does make a difference. You are supporting a small independent business.

Think about this... Commercial soap companies remove the moisturising ingredient (the glycerine) which in turn creates a soap that dries your skin and then they use the glycerine they removed to sell you a skin-moisturising lotion. 

Get in a lather about natural soap

From its composition to its benefits for the skin and health to its impact on the environment, natural soap is very different from commercial soap.

The level of care and attention that goes into producing a batch of cold process natural soap is unparalleled in commercial soaps. The goals and mission of our small business are also quite different from those of a large corporation.

Natural soaps are really soap. The recipes use sustainable, environmentally friendly natural and organic ingredients in an age-old process to produce a great lathering mild soap that promotes healthy skin.

Indulge your senses in natural aromatherapy, moisturise your skin, and feel good about what you put on your skin.

Embrace a very simple pleasure of life by using a bar of handmade natural soap. This small change will not only leave your skin beautifully conditioned but will also help make our planet a bit happier.

Your skin will notice the difference and your skin will thank you.
