Announcement   If you haven't tried handmade skincare products yet, especially soap, give it a try! Soap is created when oils and butters are mixed with sodium hydroxide (lye) and go through a chemical process called saponification. The end result is soap and no lye remains. Handmade soap makers carefully select their ingredients by the properties they would like their soap to have...a hard bar, conditioning, creamy, cleansing, bubbly, etc., as each ingredient provides a unique quality. Glycerin is a naturally occurring byproduct of the saponification process. Commercial companies often remove the natural glycerin from soap to sell in different commodities. In true handmade soap, the glycerin is still present, which skin loves! Give handmade soap a try!

About

My soap making adventure

My soap making adventures started when I made a few soaps for family and friends as Christmas gifts. I was hooked! There are so many scents available, different kinds of soap (goat milk, Shea butter, etc) to try, fun designs and techniques...oh the possibilities! I soon had soap everywhere! I realized making soap creations is fun and makes me happy! But I also realized hand made soap is gentler on my skin than what I was buying at the store. I like being able to control what I put on my skin. A lot of people asked if I was going to start selling it. This eventually planted the seed and here I am, with a soap shop!

The name, Sammer Soaps, came from years ago. When my nephew was little he couldn't pronounce my name, Sandra, and called me Sammer. For some reason, I figured this would make a unique name for my shop.

So, here I am sharing my creations with the world. Hopefully you can find a soap that will delight the senses. If you don't see anything here and would like something specific please contact me for a custom order. Thanks for taking a look at my shop and happy soaping!
