Announcement   Welcome to Soapbirds! Our shop features: $6 "One-Price" Shipping on most orders! {U.S. Only} 50 or more soap favors ship for only $8.95 Flat Rate! {U.S. Only)

Our Bird-bath goals? 1. To create rich, skin soothing, home spa experiences for "birds of every feather" to enjoy. 2. To bring back the "old time" natural bath and body remedies that combat dryness and result in seriously refreshed, "feather-soft" skin and a happy spirit! Every one of our colorful soaps are purposely "stuffed" with earth friendly ingredients that are gentle and kind to most skin types.

What's happening with our soaps in 2017:
All bars still feature our unique, skin calming combinations of coconut or goats milk, moisturizing organic aloe vera and beer! In 2017 we'll be experimenting with other skin soothing ingredients including, carrots, cucumbers, avocados, chocolate, GRITS --- (remember we're in the South) coffee, tea and more! Because we are two birds who easily get bored with "sameness"---we're always keeping things whimsical and adventurous in our nest! "Nature plays the music and we are happy to sing along." Live: Natural, Wild & Free. "Feathers!"

About

A return to our Southern roots. Inspired by simple living and . . . colorful birds.

Our grandparents were all from the South. {Virginia, West Virginia & North Carolina!} My husband and I recently had the opportunity to return to our rich heritage, filled with memories of country breakfasts, cows and simple living. Virginia is such a pretty state to live in. Artists flock to our scenic town of Floyd all the time. This area of the Blue Ridge Mountains is known for its natural beauty, friendly people and rich handicrafts. I too find great inspiration here in watching the birds. In particular, I love their many vibrant, pretty colors! My goal: Handcraft natural, helpful products with all things good, beautiful, wild and free!

Early Inspirations
My mom encouraged me to love handmade things when she taught me to knit when I was about 5. Throughout school I took as many art, handcrafting and cooking classes as I could. After marriage, my husband and I moved across country far from our family and friends. To keep in touch, I made small gifts, that could be easily (and cheaply) mailed, that would convey how much I missed my large family and close friends. Eventually, I taught myself to make soap and ended up loving the process of formulating recipes, designing packaging and seeing the benefits of using (and gifting) natural soaps and bath products.

Why soap?
Soap is real, natural, uplifting, beneficial, usable (of course), gift worthy, easily mailed, generally well received, accepted without offense (thankfully) and can be made in small or large batches. Perfect! For me, soap making is NEVER the same. And being able to use wonderful local and natural ingredients is such a "smellicious" and skin soothing treat. Making handmade products simply relaxes me and helps me to think of and share my results with others. Which is never a bad thing. Right?

Enjoy the gifts of nature. Thanks for visiting our shop! "Feathers!"

Additional policies and FAQs
SOAPBIRDS FAQ's:

1. WHAT ABUNDANTLY "RICH" 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.”
