Collection: Handcrafted Soap

Handcrafted soap made from minimal ingredients to make a soap that is safe for all skin types. Specialty soaps are made with a variety of teas and herbs.

People worry about soap made with lye. All soap is made with lye (sodium hydroxide). Bar soap is made through a chemical process known as saponification (sapo is Latin for soap). A solution of lye and distilled water, which is an alkali, is combined with oils and or fats to cause a chemical reaction. This reaction breaks down the fats or oils into fatty acid chains, and the lye is neutralized in the process and when complete, you have soap. Soap is made with an exact calculation that leaves no lye left. Not like the old days when soap was made with wood ash and animal fat and was not made with the right amounts of each and made a bar of soap that burned and was harsh on the skin. Handmade soap alsohas no harsh chemicals that store bought has. They make it with ingredients to keep the soap solid and dry when sitting in water. You don’t want to use that on your skin as it dries it as well.
