Our handmade soaps are made with natural ingredients. Commercial soaps - with their glycerine removed - contain additives and chemicals which may cause irritation, dry out your skin and cause allergy problems. The solution is to use a natural skin-friendly rich nourishing soap. Handmade soap is usually made from a selection of oils, milk and butters – Olive oil, Palm oil, Coconut oil, Jojoba oil, Avocado oil, Shea butter, Coconut butter, Goats Milk, Buttermilk, Coconut milk to name just a few.
The selected oils and/or butters are carefully blended to create a gentle soap that cleans the skin without drying it out, or causing irritation. In fact handmade natural soap won’t just cleanse your skin it will enrich, moisturise and help heal it. A variety of essential oils/fragrance oils are usually added in the soap-making process for additional moisturising benefits. Typical fragrances added are Rose, Almond, Camomile, Vanilla, Tea tree, Lime, Honey, Coconut and lots more. Essential oils are known to have natural aromatherapy healing properties and are particularly beneficial to those with skin conditions including eczema, psoriasis, and the like. The natural healing possibilities are endless. Keep trying until you find the one that suits your needs.
Often, the finished item will have a botanical added – various examples include, Rose petals, Poppy seeds, Calendula petals, Lavender Petals, Orange segments, Oatmeal etc and apart from making the soap look rustic and original are great as a mild exfoliant. What a lot you get in this little bar of soap! Looks great, smells delicious, gentle on your skin, aromatherapy benefits, exfoliant….the list is almost endless! Once you try handmade you will never look back. And best of all, Handmade Soap is not tested on animals.
