OUR SOAP PROCESS

process-pics.jpg

Our handcrafted soaps are 100% all natural, eco friendly, and made from high quality pure plant oils and rich butters. Other rich oils such as honey, lanolin, aloe vera, and agave nectar, are also used to augment the natural moisturizing properties of glycerin found in each bar. Our soaps are also enriched with additional oils suspended in the soap to provide additional moisturization and nourishment. We also use natural herb powders, natural botanicals, purifying/detoxifying clays, sea salt, sugars, and exfoliants such as oats, whole rosemary leaf, and poppy seeds. In many cases we add high quality essential oils and/or if necessary body safe fragrance oils to impart additional fragrance to our soap.

Our handcrafted soaps are made in small batches using the cold process method where the ingredients are mixed at low temperatures to ensure that their natural benefits are retained in each bar. Once the ingredients are mixed, they undergo a process know as saponification. This is a chemical reaction where the fats and oils are converted into fatty acid salt and glycerol; the two components of basic natural soap.

Our soaps are hand poured and hand cut, and are slowly cured over a time of 6 to 10 weeks. As the soaps cure, water slowly evaporates to harden the bar while insuring a milder, harder, longer lasting bar with rich lather.  When using our soaps, the the fragrance becomes more robust as you wash your way to the center of the soap where the fragrance is the strongest.  Also as a tip, when our soaps reach the end of their life span, multiple wet slivers of soap can be placed on top of each other, and the next day they will be fused together creating what we call a 'frakensoap'.

Our head soap maker is a Ph.D. level biochemist with over two decades of good lab practice techniques that ensure the uniformity, consistency, quality, and overall integrity of the soap making process, allowing us to make only the highest quality handcrafted soap possible.
