Most people do not realize that the almost all of the mass produced soaps contain petroleum oil and animal fats as well as a variety of chemicals. Whenever petroleum is used, you really have a detergent and not soap at all. For our soaps, we use only the finest coconut, palm and olive oil and the best fragrance oil. We choose from the finest fragrance and essential oils to scent our soaps. We will not use inferior or cheaper essential or fragrance oils.


Can Natural Soap "go bad" or lose scent?
Of course they can. Remember, we do not use chemicals to make our soaps last for years and years. It is a natural product. That means, USE YOUR SOAP when you buy from us. Don't set it aside because it's pretty and smells good. In each bar of soap we leave it 5% supperfatted so that you get the moisturizing benefits of the coconut,…

Don't set it aside because it's pretty and smells good. In each bar of soap we leave it 5% supperfatted so that you get the moisturizing benefits of the coconut, palm and olive oil. That means, 5% of your soap has NOT been turned into soap and so the oils are what we call "Free Floating" and those can go rancid. But not to worry, we guarantee our soaps not to go rancid or lose their scent for at least a full year (although, rancidity rarely occurs before 2 - 3 years). And USE YOUR SOAP within a year to enjoy the wonderful scents we have put in them. Remember, we add no chemicals to keep that scent locked into the bar forever! Here's a question: Do you buy a fresh baked loaf of bread from your local baker and leave it sitting on the counter (waiting for mold to appear) because it smells and looks so wonderful? or, do you eat it while it's fresh and delicious? USE YOUR SOAP WHILE IT'S FRESH AND WONDERFUL

Yes it is made with lye. But not to worry, made properly, there is no lye left in our soap. You can NOT make soap without sodium hydroxide (lye). Here's the deal; when you add acid (the OILS) and a base (LYE) and combine the two, you get a new product called "SOAP". It's not like Grandma's lye soap because Grandma used to add the fats from bacon, chicken fat, beef fat etc. Then she would dump in the lye. The problem with that method is each individual fat requires a different quantity of lye, so Grandma never really knew how much to add. Today we have the benefit of science which tells us how much lye to add to a certain amount of coconut, palm and olive oil (or whichever oils we are using) so as to make perfect soap.
