ALL THE ADVANTAGES OF NATURAL, HANDMADE SOAP
The Creamy Feel
They are made with natural ingredients like plant oils and butters which create a creamy lather for moisturization. Unlike other soap types, cold process versions help minimize dry itchy skin.
The benefits of the cold process in soap making is that the ingredients like coconut oil, mango butter, olive oil are not impact as they are in the when they go through the heating step in the hot process soap technique; the cold process method ensures these natural ingredients are better preserved.

A combination of chemistry and creativity, cold process soap making requires attention to detail and a much longer timeframe than other soap making techniques to create the best quality soap. Each recipe is stirred by hand, cured for at least six weeks and wrapped on the day of shipment to provide an exceptional customer experience.
Made with top quality natural ingredients, cold process soap offers a sensory experience that just can't be matched by commercially-made alternatives. 100% plant-based ingredients and free from detergents and preservatives, cold process natural soaps are gentle and paper your skin with a luxuriously creamy lather.
Wholesome, natural and/or plant-based ingredients
While commercially available bars have synthetic, chemical detergents that can cause skin dryness and irritation soaps made in small batches with plant-based natural oils and butters can cleanse the skin in a mild way.
Glycerine that moisturizes the skin
In handcrafted soaps glycerin is a natural by-product of soap making which moisturizes the skin. Many manufacturers of soaps remove glycerine for use in other more profitable products which is also the reason why most commercial soaps dry the skin.
They are an art
Soap making is a natural process based on the science of mixing particular ingredients together to obtain soap. However, making handmade soaps is largely an art of carefully combining oils, butters, water as well as colours and fragrances to create a special soap bar recipe that is almost too beautiful to use. Soap makers are largely artists who invest time and effort in every soap bar. Each soap is made with a personal touch.
Homemade soaps contain safe, wholesome ingredients that do not harm the environment when washed down the drain. They are based on high quality, natural ingredients and when wrapped in sustainable packaging which helps to minimize contributing to plastic waste.
What about soap storage?
Proper storage is important
Proper storage is very important for any soap, especially for handmade soap bars. You may have made the mistake of just leaving your soap in the shower, in a dish that does not drain well. The result of this is often soggy, soft bars that disintegrate rather quickly. Not what you want. You need to ensure the soap is stored correctly. This means, you want to store it on a free-draining dish, away from running water; ideally in a well ventilated area.
