Frequently Asked Question

Are your soaps vegan?

Yes, they are 100 % vegan!

Why choose handmade organic soap?

It’s simple. The ingredients! Always remember that your skin will absorb what you put on it. We usually say: “If you wouldn’t eat it why to put it on your skin?”
Today most people have never used handmade soap before. In fact, most people have never used real soap before. Wait…what?
If you take a look at cleansing products sold in stores, it’s likely you won’t find the term “soap” on the package. “Soap” sold in stores is often made with chemical detergents, hardeners, and synthetic lathering agents, which means they actually do not meet the definition of soap by the regulations of most national health agencies. Another crucial aspect is how compared to handmade soap; conventional soap often dries out the skin. This is because of the following two reasons; firstly, many of those above-mentioned ingredients used in conventional soap lead to products that strip the skin of moisture and oils, creating dry or irritating skin. Secondly, the glycerin has often been removed during the manufacturing process of conventional soap, whereas handmade soap retains all the natural glycerin in the soap. It is the glycerin that helps to attract moisture into the skin and hold it there. We could list plenty more reasons why you should choose organic handmade soap instead of conventional soap. So if you yet haven’t tried handmade natural soap – what are you waiting for?

What do we mean when we say that our soaps are all natural?

After all, soap is a chemical compound made from oils, alkali, and water – so what makes them natural compared to other cosmetic products?
When we say that our soaps are natural we refer to the fact that our products are safe and non-toxic, readily biodegradable, and they are free from artificial colors, fragrances, hardeners, lathers, preservatives, detergents, and alcohols.

Do our soaps contain essential oils or fragrance oils?

We choose only to use natural essential oils in our soaps and no synthetic fragrance oils. Basically, essential oils are derived from plant parts whereas fragrance oils are blended with synthetic compounds or blended with an essential oil that may have been diluted with a carrier.
As all the scents are natural, they might not be as strong and develop when in use, and over time the scent will fade.

I have sensitive skin and can't use most soaps. Will I be able to use yours?

Yes, most likely you will be able to use all our soaps because they are incredibly gentle and contain relatively small amounts of essential oils. Basically all of our soaps are ideal for sensitive skin, but if you do happen to have hypersensitive skin, certain allergies or prefer to avoid any form of scent, we recommend you try our unscented bar with calming calendula and avocado oil.

If there are no preservatives, will my soap go bad?

No. but you should keep the soap stored away from light, heat, and humidity. With proper storage, your soaps can be kept for over a year.

How should I store my soaps?

Our soaps should be stored in a cool, dark, and dry location until being used. When using the soap, make sure to properly drain it and store it in a way so that it can breathe and get plenty of airflow from all sides in between use. In this way, you can prevent it from becoming mushy.

Can I use your soaps on my face?

Yes! Our soaps are formulated to work for both face and body. Do note though, that your face generally is more sensitive than your body, so essential oils and butter/oils that may work well on your body, could be irritating to your face.
When using our soap for face cleansing we advise wetting your hands and face first, then wetting the bar, and then rubbing the bar in your hands for about 5-10 seconds before using the lather to gently cleanse.

Do I still need to moisturize my skin after using your soap?

A soap is after all a cleaning product. If you normally moisturize your skin after showering or cleansing your face, we would suggest continuing your ritual as usual after using our soap. For those who don’t moisturize, our soap won’t leave your skin dry and tight and it’s mild enough to be used on the face.
We’ve had several people claiming that our soaps have had such a moisturizing effect on their skin (hands, face, and body), that they entirely stopped using lotion! HURRAH!
