Yodely Goat NO COCONUT OIL Goat Milk Handcrafted Soaps

Westchester, Illinois | 813 Sales

Announcement    -!See "ON THE CURING RACKS" Below for Upcoming Soaps! - Yodely Goat handcrafted bar soaps DO NOT CONTAIN ANY COCONUT OIL and can be used by most everyone with no drying or irritating effects which some people experience when using soaps and other products containing coconut oil. I'm extremely sensitive to coconut oil myself. I don't own any coconut oil, nor any coconut oil-based additives. Yodely Goat soaps are exceptionally wonderful handcrafted soaps for everyone - not just those with sensitivities.

SHIPPING OVERAGE - Shipping can automatically calculate too high, especially on larger orders, or orders to the west coast. I do and will ALWAYS refund shipping overage in excess of 25 cents. Thank you for your trust!

COVID19 - Neither I nor any of my family have this virus. I'm VERY grateful and pray for the health and well being of everyone. Your prayers for the world and for our leaders, whether you agree or disagree with them, are crucial and always needed. Please know that I will put my shop on vacation and not receive orders if I feel even the slightest bit unwell. Please follow precautions and stay healthy!!

If you're tired of trying one product after another, you're not alone! Yodely Goat COCONUT OIL-FREE bar soaps may very well be the answer for you. Please, check out our shop reviews!

All Yodely Goat handcrafted bar soaps:

* Do not contain ANY coconut oil in any form EVER!
* Are made with only cruelty-free ingredients (no lard, tallow, or products which required animal testing are used in my soaps)
* Are Gluten-Free. Only certified gluten-free oatmeal is used in those soaps containing oatmeal)
* Rinse clean, do not leave a feeling of residue or 'heaviness' on the skin
* Are made with 75% - 85% organic oils
* Are made using goat's milk from a central Illinois farm

Yodely Goat bar soaps contain only the best moisturizing, skin-loving oils such as organic olive oil, organic shea butter, organic babassu oil, avocado, apricot, castor, cocoa butter & many more!

If you have extreme sensitivities, or are simply unsure, the best place to start is with the Yodely Goat 'ScentsLess Goat' NO Coconut Oil 100% Pure & Natural Unscented Fragrance-Free handcrafted goat's milk soap with gluten-free oatmeal.

LYES LYES LYES ...... Every now and then someone asks if my soaps are made with lye.
Yes they are!! Every soap that is TRULY SOAP, and NOT DETERGENT (a man-made synthetic bar), begins with oils, a liquid, and lye as the saponifying agent. In properly crafted soaps no lye will be present after the saponification process. Saponification occurs when the lye has completely chemically reacted with the oils and liquid, thus forming soap. There is NO LYE in a properly produced bar of soap! And there is no such thing as SOAP that is made without using lye! If someone tells you there is, they are simply lying.

CUSTOM ORDERS: Looking for custom colors / fragrances? Please message me if you are looking for a particular soap not listed, have questions, or need something in particular. Creating fully handcrafted goat's milk soaps from scratch isn't a quick process. I'm happy to consider custom orders. Please keep in mind that batches take 6-8 weeks to cure.

We need to think about what we're doing. We shouldn't be dousing ourselves and our children with chemicals. We must STOP cruelty to animals!! We need to stop and THINK and quit being duped by crazy, largely deceitful sales pitches and flashy over-packaging! God gave us everything necessary to meet our needs. Yodely Goat skin care products are thoughtfully and ethically made in an effort to provide an excellent product for you!

FRAGRANCE FREE: See my listing for "The ScentsLess Goat" unscented goat's milk soap with gluten-free oatmeal.

About Yodely Goat Bar Soaps:

~1~ Fresh goat's milk from a Central Illinois farm, organic olive oil, organic shea butter, organic babassu oil, organic cocoa butter, apricot, avocado, castor oil - all are phenomenally skin-loving oils! What is the point of a soap that, no matter how beautiful it looks or great it smells, if it doesn't leave your skin feeling great??

~2~My handcrafted bar soaps DO NOT CONTAIN COCONUT OIL. Most every bar soap and handcrafted soap contains coconut oil. Coconut oil is inexpensive, accessible, and a widely used soap making oil because it lends hardness and great lather to the soaps. However, despite the currently popularity of coconut oil, many people can't tolerate it. If you've tried many soaps, "beauty bars", "cleansing bars" etc. and find that you just "can't use anything", I hope you will try one of my soaps. The ScentsLess Goat bar is a great place to start, even if you are extremely sensitive. Allergen info: My soaps do contain shea butter, 'Bath by Chocolate' bar soap does contain chocolate. If you need more info, please message me. I do custom orders, if you need something special let me know.

~3~ Only very finely powdered, certified gluten-free oatmeal is used - no large pieces that would be abrasive.

~4~ Yodely Goat bar soaps contain a very high percentage of organic oils - 75% - 85%. The palm oils I use are organic and sustainably (renewably) resourced only.

~5~ All YG products are ANIMAL-FRIENDLY - I never used animal lard or tallow. I gratefully do use some of the amazing things that are produced by animals - goat's milk, beeswax, lanolin.

~6~I NEVER EVER use chemicals to boost the lather or to preserve and lengthen shelf life. These bars are naturally richly lathering, creamy, moisturizing and skin-loving. Only vitamin E and rosemary extract are used as anti-oxidants. Please use & enjoy!

~7~ I make handcrafted bar soaps using either the traditional cold-process method (handcrafted from scratch and cured for at least 8 weeks), or occasionally the "hot-process" method. Hot-process is simply a means by which to greatly decrease the cure time down to about 2 weeks rather than 8. Comes in very handy at times! I use exactly the same ingredients in the same proportions for each process, the hot process soaps just have a somewhat more textured appearance.

~8~Yodely Goat bar soaps are hand-cut and average between 6 - 7 ounces - much larger than the "standard size" for many other soaps on the market which is typically 3 to 4-1/2 ounces. If you would like a smaller bar, it can easily be cut into either two or four pieces. I'd be glad to pre-cut your soap if you like - just let me know.!

Re-purposing & Yodely Goat soaps - I've found that Antique Treadle Sewing Machine drawers are a perfect size for making a batch of soap. I've re-purposed them by lining them and using them for a soap mold that makes 10 bars. Having been raised by seamstresses, and sewing being my first learned skill /craft / hobby, there's a wonderful poetic balance in re-purposing treadle drawers for this purpose! Treadle / antique lovers be advised - No treadle machines were harmed or left without their cabinets!! I only use drawers left behind from long-gone cabinets. I have several treadle machines in beautiful cabinets that I wouldn't dream of altering or re-purposing!

~9~ IF THIS IS A GIFT and you would like a bag / or individual bags included, I will be more than happy to do so - just message me or let me know in the "NOTE TO THE SELLER" section or your order. YOUR CHOICE - Let me know if you'd prefer mini-brown kraft shopping bags, or clear compostable bags tied with color-coordinated raffia!

~10~ When I state that a soap is all-natural I MEAN it is HONESTLY and ENTIRELY all-natural. All-natural soaps are either fragrance-free and colorant-free, or they use ONLY essential oils for fragrance and botanicals as colorants. Some of my bar soaps are ALL-natural and the listing will state that. Other soaps are MOSTLY natural. I LOVE the endless possibilities that high-quality fragrance oils and colorants provide! When I use fragrance and colorants that are not completely natural, I use only those of the highest quality. With experience, over time I've "weeded out" the ones that are not up to my standards. The “mostly-natural” soaps are stated as mostly-natural because they contain fragrance oils and colorants that are not 100% natural - BUT - they DO NOT and WILL NEVER contain sodium laurel sulfates or any chemically lather-enhancing version thereof, phthalates, parabens or any synthetic preservative.
~Peace and Love~
You'll Be In A Real Lather With The Goat In Your Tub!!
With Love, From The Yodely Goat
