About our Soap
Our handmade soap is made from scratch using only quality, all NATURAL INGREDIENTS. Blended vegetable oils and scented with only luxurious pure essential oils or high quality fragrance oils. We have a vast range of variations including goats milk, honey, clays and natural botanicals for exfoliating texture. We add no chemicals, phosphates, sodium lauryl sulphates or parabens.
In our hand crafted soap we use the cold process in which all our ingredients are mixed at a low temperature. This process retains all the natural goodness of the base oils and essential oils. In the saponification process large quantities of natural glycerine is produced which remains in the final bar of soap.
All our soaps are very long lasting, produce an abundant creamy lather and leave skin feeling clean and fresh. Handmade soap does not strip your skin of its natural oils the way commercial products can. Try a bar of natural handmade soap and test for your self. Handmade soap has to be experienced to be appreciated fully.
Our range of soaps are available in (approx. size in mm) – 25g guest 58 x 40 x 10, 50g guest 58 x 40 x 22, 100g bars 58 x 80 x 22, half logs 2.5-2.6kg 550 x 58 x 80, full logs 5-5.5kg 550 x 120 x 90.
