Natural Soap - Frequent Questions
Natural ingredients in our soap

What's in your soap?

Our soaps are made using natural, raw materials such as plant essential oils and herbs, with lots of natural moisturizers.

The most common ingredients include olive oil, coconut oil, shea butter, organic sustainable palm oil, sunflower oil and plant essential oils. For more information, check out our Ingredients section.

natural soap is better than commercial soap

Is your soap different than commercial soap?

Yes - very. Our soaps are made through a traditional cold process that retains the rich, natural moisture in soap, which is called glycerin. Glycerin is highly valued in consumer products for its moisturizing qualities.

Many commercial soap makers remove this natural moisturizer from their soaps...then put it into other products (like lotions or balms) to sell an additional product to moisturize. Ironically, the soap had it in the first place. 

Commercial soap, with harsh chemicals and lacking moisturizing qualities, leaves skin susceptible to cracking and flaking. And nobody wants to be a flake.

Cruelty free, no testing on animals

Do you test your product on animals?

No, we love our fellow forest inhabitants and our products are cruelty free. You - and they - can rest easy at night. 

Soap for hair and face

Can I use your soap on my face and hair?

Yes. While not made specifically for this purpose, with our soap's natural cleansers and moisturizers, it is perfectly fine to use on your handsome face as well as your hair.

We don't skimp when we cut the soap into individual bars. While each soap is unique - since they are handcrafted - every bar is a nice full size at approximately 3.25" wide x 2.5" high x 1" thick.

how do you take care of natural soap symbol

How do I take care of natural handcrafted soap?

Our natural soaps do require some (minimal) attention versus commercial soaps.

Handmade soaps have a high glycerin content which attracts water, which makes our soap so great. In between uses, allow the soap to dry. The best way is to use a soap dish that allows drainage, like one that is slotted. Don’t leave your soap standing in water, or flat on a wet surface - it will get messy and break down quickly.

For the same reason, store any unused soaps in a dry and cool place until you use them.

And - since they don't have any preservatives or chemicals - use them within one year for best results.

How long does natural soap last

How long does your soap last?

It all depends on how often - and how long - you tend to use it. Generally, we have found that with typical use of showering once a day, each bar lasts somewhere between two to three weeks. Again, be sure to let it dry between uses - that will help to extend its life.
