Why Buy Handmade Soap?
Most big-brand soaps contain harsh chemicals that can irritate the skin and alcohol that dries the skin. Sometimes they even contain petroleum products. That's just wrong! Handcrafted soap is made from natural, gentle ingredients that donít leave the skin itchy, dry or irritated. In addition, our products have other natural and skin loving ingredients like various skin softening oils and a high percentage of nourishing glycerin.
All soap is made by combining a fat with an alkali. During the saponification process, the fat turns into soap and moisturizing glycerin. In commercial soaps, the glycerin is removed by adding salt to make the soap and glycerin separate. The glycerin is then used in other, more profitable products, including cosmetics, medicine, printing inks and the production of the explosive nitroglycerin. But in handmade soap, the glycerin remains in the soap, providing deep moisturizing benefits.
