Autumn is my FAVORITE time of year - but for ME, personally? I didn't smell "it" in this soap. It's not fair to knock the seller for my personal taste, because otherwise, the soap is outstanding...!

About

Welcome to Bella Fresca, which means beautifully fresh in Italian!

Here you will find beautifully handcrafted products for the bath and body, including handmade soaps, body butter, lip balms and sugar scrubs. You can delight in the sublime fragrances and scents that infuse our creations. Indulge in sumptuous products that emphasize natural and superb quality ingredients from all over the world. These luxuries will truly pamper and nourish your skin and your senses.

Where did the name Bella Fresca come from? As an art student, Susan studied quite a bit of art history and found that she loved Italian art. That was the beginning of her love for all things Italian, from the exquisite sculpture, painting and architecture to modern day product design, the stunning landscapes and scenery of the country and the fabulous Italian cuisine. Viewing a Michelangelo sculpture in person is awe inspiring, and who can resist a wonderful cappuccino or cup of gelato? Her beloved late husband was Italian too.

Everything is handmade in small batches to ensure the best quality, freshness and attention to detail. A range of the finest sustainably-sourced natural additives, botanicals, exotic oils and butters, aromatic essential oils and phthalate-free fragrances are used.

Handcrafted Process

All of our products are handcrafted in small batches with attention to detail, so everything is beautifully fresh, just like the shop name. I strive for consistency in color and appearance, however, colors may vary from the pictures and have slight variations which are part of the nature and appeal of handcrafted items.

What is the difference between handcrafted and commercially manufactured soaps?

Our handmade soap is far superior to commercially manufactured soap. We use top quality, responsibly-sourced and fair trade natural ingredients. We do not use animal fats or petroleum products such as mineral oil. Most commercially produced soaps are processed in a way that strips them of their glycerin moisturizing properties: the glycerin, which is naturally produced in the saponification process, is extracted and sold separately to make more expensive products. This leaves a bar that is much more drying to the skin.

Taking Care of Your Handmade Products

We recommend that products be used within a year of purchase.

In addition, you can prolong the life of your products by taking good care of them and following these recommendations:
(1) Store all products in a cool, dry place until you are ready to use them.
(2) Keep containers tightly closed and out of direct sunlight.
(3) Keep water out of your products as much as possible, when using in the shower or bath.
(4) Use a well-draining soap dish so the soap does not sit in a puddle of water.

Do you Have Sensitive Skin?

If you have sensitive skin and/or you have allergies, please read the ingredients listed for each product prior to purchasing. Patch test on a small area of your skin first, before using all over. I make no medical claims about these products and will not be held responsible for any allergic reaction, skin sensitivity, and/or irritation.
