FAQ

Is your soap made with lye?

Yes all natural soap is made with lye.  Soap is made by the chemical reation known as soaponification.  Here, oils are mixed with lye in specific proportions where the lye reacts with the oiis converting it to soap.  During this process ALL of the lye is consumed and is not present in the soap.

Does natural soap have a shelf life?

Natural soap has a shelf life of a several years or more. In fact natural soap gets milder and longer lasting with age.

Unlike commercially produced soaps that use synthetic preservatives, we use all natural preservatives; Grapefruit Seed Extract and Rosemary Leaf Extract. It is always best to store natural soap in a cool, dry place until you're ready to use it, and try to keep it dry when you do.

What is the white powdery substance on the tops of some soaps?

This is called 'soda ash' and is a harmless substance that can sometimes form where air meets the top of the soap loaf during saponification. It will rinse off in the first use.

Why do bath bombs fizz?
