Our Process:

All of the soap we produce is made with organic and sustainably harvested oils. It is cold-processed in small batches. Cold-processed means that our soap is made the old-fashioned way: sodium hydroxide (lye) is mixed with distilled water and combined with melted butters and oils. The lye saponifies the fats and makes soap! While it's still in liquid form, we pour in fragrance, add colors, make the swirls and patterns and pour into a mold. In twenty-four to forty-eight hours the soap has hardened. We cut the soap and put it away on drying shelves where it cures for four to six weeks (this allows it to harden and the water evaporate so you get a mild, long-lasting soap).
We test each batch of soap made on our own skin before sale (even recipes we have made many times) to make sure you are getting the best quality soap.
Our sugar scrubs are all organic, vegan and made with sustainable oils. To be sure that your product is always fresh, we custom make your sugar scrub when you order. We recommend that these organic products are used within six months from purchase.
