A customer requested I do a version of Lush’s “Fresh Farmacy” which is a soap that contains calamine powder for skin soothing. My version has added Shea Butter and NO SLS (detergent)! And Sunny Bungalow is much more affordable two_hearts

About

Handmade soap, each ingredient carefully selected with distinct purpose, nothing extra.

Did you ever notice in the grocery store that very few bars, if any, are labeled "soap?" You will see phrases like "beauty bar," or "family bar," or just the name of the company or scent. That is because most are not actually soap, but a bar of solid detergents.

Household detergent production in North America took off after World War II. By 1953 sales of detergents in the US had surpassed those of soap. Now detergents have all but replaced soap-based products for laundering, dishwashing and household cleaning. Detergents (alone or in combination with soap) are also found in many of the bars and liquids used for personal cleansing.

True soaps are the result of a chemical reaction between vegetable or animal fats, water and lye. When combined they transform into soap and glyercin, with no lye remaining in the soap. This reaction is called “saponification” which literally means “the making of soap”.

My wish is that you think of Sunny Bungalow as your little shelter against all the toxic ingredients out in the marketplace that we are rubbing into our skin.

I have over 30 years’ experience in the medical profession as an RN. Our skin is our largest organ. Most items on the shelves are filled with synthetic ingredients to increase shelf life, texture, and appearance. I started experimenting and researching more economical and handcrafted ways to make the same item. The items that I would make myself I preferred , and I knew they were healthier for my skin.

I pride myself on using only what’s needed to produce a soap or skin care item. If there isn't a distinct purpose and/or benefit, I leave the item out. Most items are scented with only essential oils. Because not all scents can be recreated with essential oils only, some products will contain a fragrance oil. All items will be marked with what scent or essential oil was added.

When you use a bar of handcrafted soap, you know it was made with the personal touch of a local soapmaker.

    I started making skin care items and soaps because I have extremely sensitive aging skin. I wanted to go back to the old fashioned simple remedies. Naked products with only the essential ingredients added.

Additional policies and FAQs
*Please note: I don't use color stabilizers in my soaps. As a result, some soaps may continue to darken as they age. This may be due to loss of moisture from the bar, or the type of fragrance or essential oil used. Soaps with a high vanilla content, or those containing natural raw honey, are likely to darken the most. The soap is perfectly safe to use, and the color change is perfectly normal for real soap! This does not affect its performance.

All soaps are made by hand in small batches with natural ingredients. Please allow for color differences and small imperfections.

**Due to their naturally high moisture content, handcrafted soaps may be softer than the average commercial bar. To prolong the life of your soap we recommend storing it on an open tray with good air circulation and drainage.
