Care for your skin the Natural Way, you'll be glad you did.

We are a couple living in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In 1997 we were spending the evening at a hotel and attending a wedding reception at the hotel. We showered and dressed and went down to the banquet room. We spent the next several hours scratching and muttering about how itchy we were.

We are a couple living in Edmonton, Alberta, Canada. In 1997 we were spending the evening at a hotel and attending a wedding reception at the hotel. We showered and dressed and went down to the banquet room. We spent the next several hours scratching and muttering about how itchy we were. Upon returning home we realized that we felt this way after every shower. We had an opportunity to try some handmade soap and the itchiness didn't happen. We finally realized it was commercial soap that was causing the itching. After months of research we started to make our own soap and have not been itchy since.

Our soap is made, cut and wrapped by hand from top quality natural ingredients such as olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter and hempseed oil. All of our cold process bars contain cocoa butter and natural glycerine for extra moisturizing. We use essential oils or top quality fragrance oils for scenting. Ultramarines and iron oxides are used for coloring.

We also use very mild moisturizing glycerine and goats milk soap.
