Announcement   From our beautiful quinta in Central Portugal, where we try to live as selfsufficiently as possible, I found a passion for the local organic extra virgin olive oil and the bounty of medicinal herbs that often grow wild nearby. I combine olive oil and herbal teas to create cold process soaps that brings us closer to nature and its wonderful healing abilities.

All my soaps are made in small batches and often feature a special herbal remedy. Each batch is unique because soap making is a great hobby for me and I like trying out new techniques, combinations, designs, shapes and cuts;
I try to keep my soaps as natural as possible, using organic essential oils and natural colorants whenever possible.
All nipnoos soaps are vegetarian (sometimes I use goats milk - from my neighbour's happy grass fed goats and often I add heather honey from the same local source).
I never use lard, tallow, synthetic additives or palm oil. No animal testing ... although should I dare to say that my dog's fur greatly improved since I started washing him with unscented 100% olive oil soap?

The soap arrived super fast. It was nicely packaged. I love how it lathers, it's very slight fragrance and the way it feels on my skin. It also looks great in an Elenware soap dish. I will definitely be purchasing more of it.

About

Making Soap with Natural Ingredients

Years ago, after experiencing dry itchy skin, acne and dandruff that kept coming back to me every so often, I started making small changes in the skin care products I used. I experimented with Aloe Vera, Kefir, Bicarbonate of Soda, Lemon Juice, Olive Oil, Aromatic Herbs by gradually incorporating all of the above into face creams, shampoos, body lotions, sun care products and tooth powders. Later, it occurred to me that maybe the store bought products aren't that beneficial as they sound and that I can make many products from scratch, at home in my own kitchen and insure that if any preserving ingredients are added, these are organic, natural and contributing something more to the final product.
I am now confidently making sun cream, deodorant, mosquitoes repellent, shampoo, moisturizers, etc . I'd gladly sell all the above products, but unfortunately I haven't yet found a way to naturally stabilize and preserve them to reach you in their best condition. However, I share my experiments and my recipes on my blog for free.
You can check it out here: http://www.nipnoos.com

Making soap is my favorite hobby and this is the one cosmetic product that I make that gets better with age and can compete with the big brands, despite using only natural ingredients:
The base ingredients for my home made soaps are Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Shea Butter and Fresh Aloe Vera Gel.
I then personalize the soaps by adding other organic ingredients and therapeutic grade essential oils.
