About my soaps

What is soap?


a substance used with water for washing and cleaning, made of a compound of natural oils or fats with sodium hydroxide or another strong alkali, and typically having perfume and colouring added.

In short

It's the secret sauce for a squeaky-clean dance with water! Imagine this: a magical mix of natural oils and a dash of robust alkali – your skin's superhero duo. But that's not all – add a sprinkle of optional perfume and colors, and voilà! Your ticket to a sensory shower experience that not only cleans but also captivates your senses. Because who said washing couldn't be a little luxurious and a lot delightful? Dive into the sudsy world of soap, where every wash is a mini pampering session! 🚿💫

What is not soap?

Let's set the record straight: soap and detergents are two different ball games.

Your current shower gel? Well, it's got a laundry list of sulfates and a bunch of mystery ingredients that sound like they belong in a chemistry lab, ending in -ol, -ium, or -ate.

Those sulfates? Heavy-duty synthetic detergents. And the other synthetic sidekicks? They're either there to keep things stable or to soften the blow on your skin.

But here's the real deal: if you're looking for a cleaner clean, it's time to ditch the detergent drama and suds up with the real thing. Soap – because your skin deserves a little more TLC. 🛁✨

Unveiling the Beauty of Cold Process Soaps

Let's dive into the world of cold process soaps – these little wonders are like nature's gifts, crafted with a meticulous selection of ingredients and a time-honored cold process recipe.

The cold process is no newbie; it's an ancient method that not only creates exceptional soaps but also keeps Mother Earth smiling with its low environmental footprint. It's a win-win!

Once these treasures are molded and cut, they embark on a patient journey of curing for a minimum of 4 to 6 weeks. Yes, it's a wait, but this is the secret sauce that toughens up the soap, ensuring it stands the test of time. Because good things come to those who wait, especially when it comes to a soap that's here to pamper and last. 🌿🚿

What now?

Crafting soap is my form of relaxation and meditation. It begins with selecting a recipe and deciding the tale I want my soap to narrate through its scents, colors, and texture.

As my passion deepened, I found myself producing more soaps than my family could possibly use, even with the frequent handwashing – and trust me, that's saying something!

Soon, friends and family started embracing my soaps, and before I knew it, inquiries poured in from their extended circles. That's when the lightbulb moment happened, and I decided to share my crafted creations officially with the world, one small, loving batch at a time. Welcome to the soap journey – where every bar is a story waiting to be told!
