TIN CHICKEN HANDMADE SOAP: On the Fancy Side of Country

Announcement    TIN CHICKEN SOAPS are balanced in terms of cleansing vs oil rich properties. I use several recipes and choose oils accordingly. You may see variations in colors, design, etc. from batch to batch. I love the art side of this and will always try to improve the look and feel of the soap -- so see ingredients lists in the product descriptions every time you reorder (in other words, expand/click on "read more".

(Almost) Everything I use is vegan, with the exception of my “milk soaps” that contain a spot or two of cream and my Banana Oat Bread Soap which contains honey. Vegan Soaps are labeled “Vegan”.

When I use Palm oil in particular batches, I use RSPO certified sustainable palm oil. Most of the recipes won’t have palm at all, so check my ingredients under the product description drop down section, if that matters to you. Priorities that I have when ordering ingredients are GMO free and Organic, as well. I am a woman who invested in 20 hens to assure that we eat free range organic eggs, so whenever possible, I buy organic.

Always read Ingredients and Warnings -- they cover me; and they cover you, especially if you have health issues!

If I think the particular soap will turn out better, it will be different down the road with ingredients lists changed accordingly. That’s the nature of soaping. It really is an art and a science at the same time.

Just a note about the natural embellishments that I use on the top surfaces of my soaps: Lavender buds turn brown after a while so I will be using less of them; the mica sprinkles can stain clothing so rinse off; bioglitter basically turns to sand when wet so rinse off; enviroglitter dissolves in water; salts dissolve; dried flowers & spices wash off easily. So, all wash off easily; and even though they may be safe for use in soap doesn't mean that you want to put them in your eyes, lol. They do look prettier than plain, undecorated soap, though. Sometimes they do need a bit more than a swirl of colored soap on top!

About fragrance: I like both essential oils and fragrance oils (from reputable sources) and take a less is more attitude about them; so,if you want more fragrance in the next batch, please use the contact seller button to let me know.

I appreciate feedback, as long as you use the “Contact Seller” button; and the same goes for special requests. I am willing to take special orders if you want something specific and you order a whole batch (35 bars). I would love to work with folks on event planning needs, should they give my at least 8 weeks notice.

I always have new soaps on the way, as it takes a month or more for them to cure. Please check my site often to see new arrivals. And please remember that your reviewed purchases are a HUGE help here; and please please remember to find and follow this shop on Facebook, Instagram, Pinterest and/or Twitter. Folks who need to purchase wholesale in 35+ bar orders may contact me at tinchickensoap at gmail com for pricing; there are many soap catefories that are not listed here for wholesalers.

“Simpler Living/City Homestead” + “Fancy Tin Chicken” + “Fancy Artsy Clean Freak Lady” = Tin Chicken Handmade Soap “On the Fancier Side of Country”

Welcome!

TIN CHICKEN SOAP is a natural business for me as my husband and I evolve into being more self sustaining with large veggie gardens, chickens and this cottage soap industry. My background is in sales, art and advertising; and I’m a bit of a neat freak, so this process of soaping is a melding of all of those things. I love GREAT soap better than GREAT cars — so it all makes sense.

Lastly, Why the name Tin Chicken?

Well, we have a very large, rather fancy tin chicken who “guards” the chicken coop. She is SO country but she is SO beautiful and really epitomizes what we like about having gardens and chickens and chores! It’s all hard work but life is better for having these.

Some time after I became happily obsessed with soaping, it was time to answer the call from my industrious side. I began designing a Logo and our beautiful tin chicken came to mind.

Every form of Chicken Lady was already taken, of course, so Ifinally went with Tin Chicken Handmade Soap and TinChickenSoap.com, not seeing how I would realistically link the soap with the tin chicken. It felt right for some reason, though; so I went with my gut and worked her into the logo design. (Still needed a way to link the two things but had no worries). I took a photo of the Tin Chicken and began fiddling with the graphics. The Logo was ready; and although, I used the image differently on some of my packaging, the original is my favorite.

Then, one Sunday afternoon, after tending to the chickens, gardening, getting rained on and planting more seeds, I looked down at my muddied (church) dress and realized, “I’m gardening in my CHIFFON sun dress and rubber mud boots”!

At that moment, after trying to think of a slogan for days, I had complete clarity. I blurted it out to my husband, “Tin Chicken Handmade Soap ~ On the Fancy Side of Country!” Sunday afternoon is when I catch up on gardening and cutting grass but I am always thinking about soap; in fact, that's all I talk about.

I used to have a T-shirt that said I can go from mud to makeup in 5 seconds flat — and though I thought it tacky — its kind of what we have here. Nothing TOO fancy, chickens, gardens, lots of produce and cooking, friends to share it with, and family back home to cheer me on in the process of building Tin Chicken Handmade Soap.

I’m all business with the soaps and it’s a CLEAN business (which I like about it), so my studio is organized, CLEAN, and my focus is all about making soap that is beautiful and useful. In a nutshell, it is my way of feeding my creativity while sharing our "tin chicken" lifestyle with you. It’s all pretty cool. That is for sure.

I hope that you love this soap.
Please share this shop on social media if you are so inclined.
Every order is appreciated and will be handled with care.

Frequently asked questions
Sizing details

Prior to using the improved multi bar 1" cutting tool, I used a single bar cutting tool, so the sizes of the bars varied from 3.5-5.5 oz; net weight was listed as “approx. 4 oz on labels. New releases in July 2020 will be 4.25-4.5 oz and labels will read “Net Wt. 4 oz”. Needless to say, I am very happy with my new bar cutter!

Care instructions

Store unused soap in a dark, dry location; then, once used, it is best to set soap on a drying pad so that it will stay firm. Soap that sits in water between uses will become soft. Colors may fade over time.
