I loved the facial cream so much, I ordered this combo too - and I love them just as much - face felt so smooth after using, but not dry or tight. Lovely fragrance (my choice) and was packaged and shipped very professionally. Also received a sample of another product - great customer service and great products - always a pleasure making a purchase from Robin!!

My second order of this wonderful facial cream - love it! Not heavy, just the right weight for facial skin, and I ordered with a fragrance, which smells so good. Well packaged, quick shipping and great customer service - highly recommend this A++++ shop for both service and products!

The 'presentation' of this crafter's products is so pretty and rich looking. Color coordinated wrappings and ribbons make it very special. Thanks for your attention to detail!

How it all Began

We are proud to participate in the use of only sustainable palm oil.
I started making soap about 15 years ago. Since then I have learned difficult swirling techniques that are hard to find. I love the Artisan aspect of soap making, it is almost like painting. Designs and swirls are endless and working with all the ingredients I use to make soap at times can be difficult, nonetheless very satisfying. I have broadened what I make by adding lotions, creams, candles, balms, and more. I try to stay as natural as possible. I am into cruelty free, animal free products. I have done all the research on all my ingredients from the companies I buy them from and I assure you they are all cruelty free. I am a proud member of PETA and they also promote my shop too. Also supported by Truth in Labeling.
I love to share my ideas and that is why I have a You Tube channel.
I decided to open a shop since I was selling so much locally. Sales on Etsy is very competitive and at times slow for me. I make extremely large soap bars and tell family and friends "you spend more on a burger or a snack than you would on a wonderful bar of soap that your skin will love you for" lol.
I don't over charge on my shipping; I am not out to make a profit off of the shipping and try to estimate best I can the shipping charge, often times I end up paying extra for the shipping. I hope you will give my products a try, I put a lot of effort and love into making everything in this shop and package beautifully. A package you will be proud to give if it is a gift.
Thank you again for shopping and or visiting Desert Moon Bath & Body.

About Our Soap

Our soap is made using a 200 year ancient traditional cold process method. Each bar is unique and takes about one month to produce, but once cured, the soap is gentle and mild. Our handmade soaps retain the natural glycerin, which is formed during the curing process. Commercial milled soaps remove the natural glycerin before selling. We use only high grade oils and pesticide free botanicals. The fragrance oils in our soaps are high grade and phthalate free.

Our soaps should not be confused with glycerin soap or "melt and pour" soap, which are produced from premade soap bases. Our soaps are made on site using fresh, pure, natural ingredients.

USPS increased postage rates significantly again in February 2016. We use Etsy Shipping Calculator which is VERY accurate. If I find that I can ship your order in an envelope rather than a box (which weighs more), I will do so and refund the difference to you. We will ensure we ship the most economical way possible when possible.
We charge what the postal service carrier charges us; no additional charges are added such as handling or small order fees. Please allow extra time for delivery for some of our products as many are made fresh to order. You can request a pre order postage estimate by sending me your email and what product you want. I can then calculate the shipping and post a reserved listing with the exact amount. We are not out to make a profit off of shipping!
Thank you.

General Desert Moon Bath & Body Questions

How do I care for my Natural Soap?

Our soap is made with no preservatives or chemical hardeners, and in order to keep it fresh and long lasting we have a few words of advice for you.

We recommend using a soap dish that enables all water to drip through the bottom, this way the soap has a chance to become dry between uses. This will help it last longer too.

We highly recommend that you use your soap in the shower so you can truly enjoy the aroma of the essential oils and natural base. But, be sure that it is out of the stream of water while you shower or it will disintegrate prematurely.

Keep in mind that your soap is made entirely of natural materials, and these plant materials and clays will fade with time. It is just the way nature is.

The scent from the essential oils may also fade. However, the good news is that once you use a bar and get under the surface of the soap the scent will be stronger. This is because essential oils are 'volatile.' That simply means that they evaporate, but no worries, the oils trapped in the bar can not get out.

We think it is best to use your soap within a year of purchase so you can fully enjoy it the way it was intended.

Why Natural Soap?

Adults have about 8 pounds of skin. It is our largest organ, and it's like a sponge soaking up all that we spread on it. So, what do you want your skin to absorb?

We think that only all natural ingredients are good enough because that is what best for you.

We begin making every batch from scratch with olive oil, coconut oil, and organic sustainable palm oil. To this we add special moisturizing oils and butters such as avocado oil and Shea butter to make sure that they are luxuriously moisturizing. Most of our soaps are colored naturally with plants and earth materials such as French clay, micas, and they many are scented with pure essential oils. Finally, in order to make soap we add sodium hydroxide (lye).

Without lye there would be no soap. In fact, the definition of soap requires that oils (fats) and lye be combined to cause a chemical reaction called 'saponification.' Don't worry, there's no lye left in the soap after this chemical reaction. Plus, after the saponification occurs the natural by-product is glycerin, a wonderful humectant that helps attract moisture to your skin and keep it soft.

Commercial 'soap' is not actually soap, it is a detergent. It's made with chemicals; if you are feeling brave look at the label of your favorite detergent bar. It is possible that you will not be able to pronounce many of the words. Is that what you want your body to absorb?

Not only is commercial 'soap' made with chemicals, but the natural glycerin that is created is actually removed so that it can be sold separately. We think that's pretty sad because the glycerin is one of the best parts of our soap. It helps make it so luxurious and makes it feel great on your skin.

We are sure that you'll love our handmade soap. It's an affordable luxury, and you deserve it!

Where does Desert Moon Bath & Body stand on the issue of animal testing?

We don’t use ingredients that are tested on animals, nor do we use supplies, ingredients or support any company or business who tests its products on animals. Stopping all animal testing is something that we truly care about. In true conscience, we believe there is no way to justify testing cosmetics or any of their ingredients on animals. The only way to see if they’re safe for humans is to test them on humans. We believe this to be the only worthwhile position to adopt, and we encourage all bath & body products companies to adopt the same policy.

Why does it sometimes take longer to receive my order?

Our products are handmade in small batches to ensure freshness, and to ensure your purchase is long lasting. For that reason, we occasionally run out of stock. If the item you ordered is currently out of stock, it may take up to 5 business days for your order to be handcrafted for you. We thank you in advance for your patience. If you should have further Shipping questions, please refer to our Shipping Information page.

What do I do if my favorite product is out-of-stock on the website?

We do run out of some products from time to time. All our products are made by hand in small batches, so our products can always stay fresh. Out-of-stock items are usually back in stock within 5 to 7 business days. Please check back periodically to see if the product you want is back in our store. There is only one exception: we will no longer be carrying the handmade soap bars currently on our website as we will be selling our own brand of soap in the very near future; you can look forward to seeing our new soaps once our current stock of soap bars is exhausted.

About Preservatives

Phthalate Facts!
There are many questions and controversy about Phthalates. What are Phthalates? What do they do? Are they dangerous? The Food and Drug Administration (FDA) studied biomonitoring data from The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) in 2001 and found “no reason for consumers to be alarmed at the use of cosmetics containing phthalates.” In addition, a study of participants from a CDC study showed that Phthalate exposure levels used in personal care products were well within the safety levels set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)—levels that already incorporate a number of conservative safety margins. An expert panel—the Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR)—also reviewed the use of phthalates in cosmetics. In 2002, it completed an extensive review of all the literature on DMP, DEP and DBP and reaffirmed its 1985 conclusion that these phthalates are “safe as used in cosmetic products.” CIR found that exposures to phthalates from cosmetics are “low compared to levels that would cause adverse effects in animals.”

Phthalates are among the most thoroughly studied families of compounds in the world and have been reviewed by multiple regulatory bodies in the United States. Using estimates of the average amounts of DBP found in nail polish, if a person were to absorb all the DBP in almost five bottles of nail polish, or all the DEP in two quarts of perfume, every day, the amount of phthalates he or she consumed would still be a level at which no effect is seen in laboratory animals.

Q. Do phthalates cause cancer?
A. Phthalates are not a known carcinogen.

Q. We are exposed to phthalates every day, in many ways. Doesn’t that add up to trouble?
A. We are exposed to many things every day. But phthalates do not build up in the body. Phthalates begin to break down within minutes and are quickly metabolized.

Get the facts & decide for yourself.

Products For Baby

New Born to 12 Months
I have conservative views on what products are safe for babies. Babies are born without a defense system for allergens and develop a resistant as they grow. Product used on babies should have a very low allergy risk, contain the most natural ingredients with no extra perfume or preservatives. Babies don’t need perfume. Although there are a number of products in the marketplace for baby care, many cause problems for babies. Baby products should be as simple and safe and natural as possible.

Baby Cosmetic Rules

Babies are not dirty, they require gentle and soothing products. Babys skin is perfect apart from the first little while when it may be a bit dry and wrinkly. The natural acid barrier of baby skins is essential for their well being and should not be stripped away by harmful detergents. Babies should never be set in water with bubble baths. This is one of the most common irritants and it well documented to increase the risk of urinary tract infections in babies, toddlers and even grownups Soap will strip away the babies natural protective lipids on the skin.

· Babies are delicate. Products which are scented or have strong preservatives can cause eczema and allergies. Babies smell sweet enough without extra perfume.

· Babies do not need to be exposed to ingredients in cosmetics that have fallen under suspicion and are under investigation for possible toxic effects. Products and ingredients which have not been proven safe should not be tested on our children.

· Babies need protection from the sun. Although babies should avoid the sun, they still go for ‘walks’ in the pram and stroller and may lie under the shade of a tree. At those times, when babies are out and about, they need full-spectrum protection from the strength of the sun. Nano particles also known as “micronized zinc” or “micronized titanium” are currently under scrutiny and may possibly be able to pass the skin barrier and collect in the blood stream and lungs. When choosing a sunblock select the non micronized zinc or titanium until we know for sure the others are not harmful. These are the products that show up white on the skin. In the summer buy light UV clothing that covers the baby’s arms and legs and get them a nice wide brimmed hat to protect their face.

· If you feel you must use powder avoid talcum and use Rice, Corn or Tapioca Flour. Talc is chemically similar to asbestos, a known cancer causing substance. It is found in baby and body powders. An American Journal of Epidemiology study found talcum powder to be directly linked to an increased risk of ovarian cancer and general urinary tract disorders. I cannot personally say how well documented this is but why take the chance when there are so many other options available to us.

· Avoid products with Parabens in babies. I mention this group of preservatives because this group of preservatives have been found to be weakly estrogenic. That means that they produce the same effect on the body as estrogen. Although they are inactivated when eaten, they are absorbed into the skin from cosmetics in an active form. They have been linked with changes in the sexual organs and sexual development in rats and salmon. This has raised concern as to the possible effects on humans.
