FAQ - Soaps

Soap is made by saponification, which is the process of combining lye, and vegetable oils, and water. Saponification is a general term for the overall process of making soap but within that there are various specific processes which are utilised. The cold process method is one where saponification takes 4 – 6 weeks to complete and the glycerine remains in the soap. They are time intensive and handmade. But there is more than one reason why they cost more (they’re not just a pretty face!) and in my mind, the most important thing is that we use cold pressed oils and plant based ingredients. The bulk of the soap manufacturers use what we call a “Synthetic Detergent Bar.” This means that the soap is actually some form of lathering chemical (like SLS or Sodium Lauryl Sulphate) pressed together to form a bar of soap. “ It takes a long time to make soap by old fashioned traditional way! Just a quick rundown of some of the steps in making handcrafted soap: develop a recipe, test the recipe, purchase ingredients, measure ingredients, design soap, line moulds, prep lye water, heat oils to right temperature, make the soap, let soap sit for at least 24 hours (while checking on it a few times to make sure all is well), unmold soap, cut soap, put soap on curing rack for a minimum of 4 weeks, stamp soaps, bevel soaps, take pictures of soap for website, add listing to website, make labels for soap, put shrink wrap on soap, label soap, put on the shelf while it waits for a new home! It is a very time-consuming production process for the production of handmade soap. Finally, when you purchase from the little guy (me!), you’re supporting a better economic way of life. Did you know that little small businesses just like mine contribute more to our local economy because every rupee spent with me stay’s in our community, helping to make our community stronger? Small businesses are the backbone of our economy. Hence you’re not only paying for a better way to do business that makes this community stronger but you’re paying for a better bar of soap that is healthier for your skin, your family and the environment.

Organic soap is simply better for your skin. It contains natural ingredients such as plant-derived base oils, glycerin, and essential oils. By contrast, synthetic, mass-market soap is made of petroleum-based lathering agents, synthetic fragrances, harsh dyes, and dangerous preservatives.
