Announcement   Welcome to Soapbirds!
Soapbirds creates Southern old time (and modern) soaps filled with "all things loving and good!" We believe in using the best natural ingredients, such as: beer, aloe, shea butter, cocoa butter and goats milk, brings so much to bath time, that commercial soaps can't compare. Our soaps and bath products soften and moisturize delicate skin while also "uplifting the soul! Enjoy our custom gift boxes, bath accessories and unique wedding or shower event favors that are a welcome treat for your special guests.

COMMERCIAL SOAPS
There are so many skin "issues" today. Could the problem simply be the long list of chemicals that are found in commercial soap detergent bars, liquid body washes and shampoo products? Years ago, your grandparents (and mine) washed themselves, bathed their children and took care of their everyday cleaning needs with only a few simple ingredients at best. For most of us, the result was clean, soft, well cared for skin. We need to get back to that.

SOAPBIRDS SOAPS
Natural handmade soaps, that are made correctly, will clean your skin well without stripping or drying it out. Earth friendly, handmade soaps retain their natural "glycerin" which helps to draw moisture to and keep it in your skin. All of Soapbirds soaps are 97- 100% Natural! Each quality ingredient is listed on the products that we create. We believe in "stuffing our bars!" with rich butters, local honey, vegetable purées, herbal infusions, chocolate, coconut milk and goats milk with the goal of softening your skin and refreshing your spirit! "Nature plays the music and we are just happy to sing along." We hope you will too. Live Beautiful. Live Natural, Wild & Free.
"Feathers!"

Additional policies and FAQs
SOAPBIRDS FAQ's:

1. WHAT ABUNDANTLY "FAT" INGREDIENTS ARE USED IN OUR PRODUCTS?
A. SHEA BUTTER:
Shea butter makes a very luxurious soap! It contains some unsaponifables that will not react with the lye in soap---thus Shea butter remains in soap to nourish the skin. Shea provides soap with hardness, conditioning, stable lather, and a silky feel. It has been said that shea butter can help with skin blemishes, dry skin, and wrinkles.

B. COCOA BUTTER:
Cocoa butter helps to produce a harder bar of soap that has rich, creamy lather. Cocoa butter is high in antioxidants and provides soothing moisture to the skin.

C. OLIVE OIL:
Olive oil soaps are exceptionally mild. Soaps made with olive oil are a natural and hypoallergenic way to nourish and moisturize skin. Soap made with olive oil helps the skin's surface retain moisture, which translates to younger looking skin. Regular use helps keep skin looking supple and smooth. Soapbirds uses at least 40% Olive Oil in many of its formulations.

D. GOAT'S MILK:
Goat milk is simply one of the finest moisturizers and it has excellent emollient properties. Soaps made with goat milk are naturally protein rich, which makes it wonderful for delicate complexions. We love using it in many of our soaps! The milk makes the soap richer, creamier, and thus less drying for the skin. It has also proven beneficial for some people with eczema, psoriasis, and acne.

E. BEER:
BEER produces a creamy soap that has great moisturizing properties, even on sensitive skin. It makes a wonderful shampoo and has a great natural scent. Since beer is made with hops, the properties and benefits of hops become a skin blessing when used as the base for soap. Hops are known to be a relaxing herb and this relaxing effect stays with the bar after going through the soap making process. Try soaping up with beer soap after a hectic, stressful day!

Other benefits to Hops: soothes irritated skin; contains polyphenols thought to account for its anti-bacterial and preservative effects (thus beer's long shelf life); and they contain skin-softening amino acids. Beer Soaps make great gifts for men and for those who love beer!

F. ALOE:
Aloe Vera possesses incredible moisturizing properties. Studies show that Aloe Vera improves the skin's ability to hydrate itself, aids in the removal of dead skin cells and has an effective penetrating ability that helps transport healthy substances through the skin. The other health benefits from the use of aloe vera include helping to soothe skin injuries affected by burning, skin irritations, cuts and insect bites, and its bactricidal properties relieve itching and skin swellings.

G. COCONUT OIL
Coconut Oil 101 – Nature’s Perfect Healer! Coconut oil is the most important oil that we use in our soap making! It possesses antimicrobial, antifungal, anti-bacterial, and antioxidant properties. It is deeply nourishing to skin tissue and penetrates easily, thus strengthening skin tissue. AND It produces a true fluffy lather + a HARD bar of soap that we love to make---100% Coconut Oil soap will even lather in salt (sea) water! This oil absorbs easily, and will keep your skin super soft.


2. WHAT DO SOAPBIRDS NATURAL SOAPS NOT CONTAIN?

* PARABENS: PARABENS ARE SOAP PRESERVATIVES TYPICALLY ADDED TO SYNTHETIC SOAPS AND HAVE SOME POSSIBLE HEALTH RISKS.

* SODIUM LAURYL SULFATE: THIS IS A DEGREASING AND FOAMING AGENT (READ YOUR CURRENT SHAMPOO BOTTLE'S “INGREDIENTS” LIST) THAT CAN DRY THE SKIN.

* PHTHALATES: THESE ARE ADDED TO COMMERCIAL SOAPS TO STABILIZE THE FRAGRANCE AND COLOR. IT HAS BEEN FOUND TO HAVE SOME POTENTIAL HEALTH RISKS.

THE ABSENCE OF THESE CHEMICALS IN COMBINATION WITH THE BENEFITS OF ALL NATURAL OILS, BUTTERS & HERBS MAKE SOAPBIRDS PRODUCTS AN APPEALING OPTION FOR MANY CONSUMERS LOOKING TO REDUCE THEIR FAMILIES “CHEMICAL EXPOSURE.”
------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------
CONVO'S: We are "convo friendly" between 8:00 am and 8:00 pm. (Eastern Time) Monday to Friday. This is a family business and weekends are reserved for our families. Weekend Convo's will be answered on the following Monday or as needed. Thanks for understanding.
