Every batch is hand-crafted and aged into bars of pure luxury.
“How” we make our products is as important to us as “what” we make. Our soaps are good for your skin and good for environment.

What's In Your Soap?
Many commercial soaps today are made with detergents, which are petroleum based and contain very small percentage of natural ingredients.
Skin has the remarkable ability to absorb the products you apply to it right into blood stream. (That is why skin patches work).
Do you really want your body absorbing unfriendly chemicals? Many skin problems are result of the chemicals from the soap and skin conditioners that you are using.
Using natural products helps to prevent your skin from ingesting harmful chemicals.

How to care for your soap
Once you get your new soap home, there are some things you can do to help it last as long as possible:
- Don't let it sit in a puddle (any moisture will dissolve soap, even if you are not using it). A draining soap dish or a mesh bag hanging in the shower will help dry your soap between uses.
- The longevity of your soap improves if you use loofah or wash pouf rather than soaping your body and creates even more lather.
- Rinse your soap after use to get excess lather off
- Before use, store your soap in a cool dry place, away from heat and direct sunlight. Under sink is not good because soap can pick up moisture from condensation on the pipes. Some people store it in a linen closet or dresser drawer so the scent can freshen towels or clothing.
- If you want the bar to “roll” in your hands, use a cheese slicer and bevel the edges of the soap. Put the beveled off pieces in a small muslin or organza bag and use as an instant soapy washcloth.
- Soap should be used within 6-12 months of purchase.
Since hand-crafted soap has no chemical preservatives, it deserves a special care to insure longest, happiest relationship possible between you and your soap!
