1. Glycerin for the Skin
Glycerin isn’t added to a handmade soap recipe – Rather it’s created during the soap making process! Glycerin is an emollient that softens by attracting moisture to your skin. It is so beneficial to your skin that it is extracted from commercial “soap” and sold separately for other pharmaceutical products. Handmade soap retains all of its natural glycerin.
2. All Natural
A typical ingredient list of our soap reads like this:
Water, Olive Oil, Castor Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil and essential oils.
However try to decipher the chemical laden list of ingredients of a commercial soap and you will have trouble identifying even a few natural elements.
3. Superior Ingredients
Our ingredients include olive oil which is gentle and kind to the skin along with shea butter, castor oil and coconut oil to create a creamy soap bar with a lovely lather. The other ingredients too are selected based on their benefits to the skin rather than to improve just the visual characteristics of the soap bar.
4. Pure Essential Oils
The essential oils used in handmade soaps are the ones that are used in aromatherapy as well. Thus the benefits of handmade soaps do not confine themselves to cleansing and moisturizing the skin. Rather the bath itself provides the benefits of inhaling amazing essential oils which help alleviate stress and relax the body.
5. Traditional Process
Making the soap in a traditional way requires heating the oils and butters at low temperature, just enough to melt them and to start the saponification process. Commercial soap making is done at much higher temperature to remove glycerin etc for a separate use. Handmade soap is made keeping the temperatures low so as to retain the beneficial properties of the oils and butters.
6. No Artificial Colors or Synthetic Fragrances
We do not believing in adding chemical colors or synthetic fragrances just to improve the appearance of the soap, rather, we believe in selecting each ingredient based on its benefit to the skin.
7. No Detergent
Imagine putting detergents on your skin!!!
Big soap brands which call themselves “beauty bars or moisturizer bars” don’t use the word soap on the label. This is because they are actually detergents. They simply hide this piece of information with labels like “beauty bars or fairness bars”.
