Our most popular products are our soaps. Our soaps are created using the cold process method. Cold process soapmaking is the act of mixing fixed oils (our oils are castor oil, coconut oil, palm oil, and shea butter) with an alkali (Sodium Hydroxide or Lye). The result is a chemical process called saponification, where the composition of the oils change with the help of the lye to create a bar of soap. Once our soap mixture is created, we pour it into 5 - 10lb wooden molds, wait 24-48 hours, then cut it into bars. After cutting, we let our bars cure for 4 to 6 weeks to ensure that all the lye and water has evaporated from the bar, leaving you with a long-lasting, skin-loving soap bar.
Every product you use is handcrafted with great love and care. In fact, we guarantee our products are great because we use them ourselves.
