Welcome to New Day Soap Co., the best little soap shop in East Texas!

You took the time to come to this section to see who I am and what New Day Soap Co. is about (as you should) so I am going to take the time to tell you. First let me say I am not a writer, I am a soapmaker, but I will do the best I can to tell you about me and my company.

Let me start with the name "New Day" and why I chose it. Every day is a new day and with that comes new ideas. I wake up every day thinking of how I can make my soap even better than it already is. This is not just something I do to make money, don't get me wrong I like money, but I love making soap more... it is truly my passion. I do not focus on mass production, I focus on one small batch at a time and put everything I have into each and every batch. I use the cold process method and every batch gets a 6 week cure. At that time I test a bar from every batch to make sure it meets my high standard and if it doesn't make the cut, then it doesn't go out.

For me making soap is more than throwing ingredients together in a pot, pouring in a mold and then slapping it up for sale on the internet. To me it is about the ingredients that go into that pot. It took me years to perfect my base, a base where all the oils worked together and performed the way I wanted them to. I always start with that base and build from it. I love finding different, exotic and luxurious ingredients that makes me feel rich and pampered and I love passing that on to my customers. I never cut corners on ingredients or fragrances and never will. Some ingredients can be costly, but that doesn't stop me from using them. You will see that the price of my bars vary and that is why. I prefer to do it this way so I can offer my customers the same ingredients I love to use.

I don't stop at ingredients though, I also enjoy the creative outlet soap provides, I love working with colors and ingredients that add texture to the bars, they have to be pretty to look at too right? Then I scent with the highest quality, skin safe essential oils and fragrance oils available. I have spent a small fortune leaving no stone unturned to find the best scents out there and a variety so that everyone should be able to find something in my shop that appeals to them. For those that prefer no scent, well I have that too.

You also won't see me making medical claims about my soap as soap is for cleansing not healing, it is a wash off product. However that doesn't mean that for those 15 minutes you are using it that it should be anything less than extraordinary. My soap is formulated to leave your skin feeling clean, but not stripped of the natural oils it needs to stay healthy.

I always try to be as "green" as possible, both in the ingredients I use such as sustainable oils and butters all the way to the packaging whenever possible.

Where is New Day Soap Co. and how long have I been doing this you ask? Well I am in the small historic town of Coldspring, Texas and I have been making soap and other products since 2004. I was going through life every day with itchy skin until one day I got online and started poking around. I stumbled on a site about making your own products that didn't contain detergents and harsh chemicals and the research began. After making and using my first handmade soap my skin very quickly stopped itching and well the rest is history.

So you might ask why I don't make other products, like lotions, scrubs and body butters? Well that is because I say stick to what you love and what you do well. Not to say the other products I do make are not good, they are...I just prefer to focus mainly on soap.

Aside from making great soap, I am also dedicated to great customer service and fast shipping. I expect that when I buy products and you will get the same from me. You can read my feedback and be assured that when I tell you I want you to be happy that I mean it. If you are ever unhappy with a purchase you let me know and I will do what I can to resolve the issue. If you have any questions prior to placing your order do not hesitate to send me a message, I am more than happy to answer any questions you have.

So if you are still reading and your eyes have not glazed over yet, here is a bit more info about soap in general that might interest you.

Why buy cold process soap?
Because you deserve it! Why not take an every day ritual to a new level and pamper yourself while doing so. If you have dry skin you will not believe the difference. Handmade soap is a luxury almost everyone can afford.

How my soap is made:
All bars are handcrafted using a combination of premium oils and butters along with many other luxurious ingredients to create a gentle cleansing bar that will leave your skin feeling clean and soft, not stripped, dry and itchy.

Each batch is scented with skin safe fragrance and or essential oils and colored with clays, oxides, cosmetic quality micas or natural colorants. Then poured into molds and left for 24 hours, hand cut, cured at least 4 to 6 weeks. All bars are unique and can vary in shape and size due to being hand cut and that is the beauty of it all.

The soap will come with a cigar band label listing all the ingredients and then wrapped in cardboard paper to prevent damage during shipping. We try to keep packaging as green as possible here.

Soap is made by a reaction of lye and oils and or butters. When a lye and water solution is mixed with the oils and butters the chemical reaction called *saponification* takes place. The end result is made up of soap and glycerin with no lye being left in the final cured soap. Most commercial soap is not soap at all, the glycerin is removed and detergents are added creating detergent bars that can be drying/irritating to the skin.

What is glycerin?
Glycerin is a rich emollient that is gentle to skin and is retained in handmade cold process soap.

How to care for your soap:
Due to the natural glycerin in handmade soap it must be stored in a well draining soap dish to avoid melting which will prolong the life of the bar.

What you won't find in our soap:
Detergents and harsh chemicals!
