Announcement    I happy to announce NEW SOLID DISH BARS! Three new bars each with added extras round out my new selections. There is an activated charcoal dish bar scented with spearmint and eucalyptus essential oils, a cedar wood orange dish bar with added coffee grounds, and an organic lemon peel and rosemary dish bar.

Also new to the shop are reusable and eco-friendly face pads. These pads are hand crocheted and pair perfectly with your favorite bar of goats' milk soap.

It's never been easier to reduce plastic use. I'm proud to offer many great alternatives to items normally purchased in plastic containers. Solid dish washing bars are a great alternative to plastic bottles of dish soap, solid shampoo and conditioner bars will keep your showers plastic free and of course, handmade bar soap has always been the choice for a plastic free body wash that's so good for your skin!

About Lora's Beauty

Simple beauty begins with clean, healthy skin and that's what Lora's Beauty is about. I love making cold process soaps with quality oils and butters. The artistic, calming nature of blending natural ingredients together to produce something so basic yet so useful and beautiful is what draws to me to the creative soap making process.

More than a decade ago, I made my first batch of soap and was hooked. Many batches later I began to understand the chemistry involved in creating a bar of soap. From there, I began to branch out and try new ingredients and designs. Today I've been able to turn my side hustle into a full time work of passion!

I take a lot of inspiration from viewing other soap maker's work and am active in the soap maker's community. I truly believe handmade soap is far better for your skin, your health, and the environment than any detergent bar you can pick up at the grocery store.

Living in the Pacific Northwest my whole life I grew up with sustainability in mind. I source all my ingredients from local companies and buy organic. My products do not contain palm oil and my packaging is recyclable or reused. I take great pleasure in offering plastic free products that replace everyday purchases like solid dish soap, shampoo, and conditioner bars.

In order to better explain the science in making soap I wrote a technical post on the chemistry. It's a better read than it sounds and I recommend reading it here:
