Pamper Yourself ... With Gentle, Natural Handmade Soap
Have you ever tried a superior quality bar of handmade soap? You will have a wonderful experience because it leaves your skin clean, refreshed and moisturized.
Most handmade soaps are made by someone who cares about what you put on your body and wash it with, therefore, high-quality, skin-nourishing ingredients are used in the making of a gentle bar of soap, like coconut oil, palm oil, olive oil, cocoa butter and other natural oils... Most handcrafted soaps are made in small batches with down-to-earth simple ingredients to ensure quality and uniqueness. Care is taken to add that special clay, color, herb and fragrance for a unique and exceptional "Spa-like" experience...
What a welcome relief from the harsh detergents and chemicals found in, so called, factory-made bath soaps and body care products today!

If you think all soaps are the same, you haven't experienced real, made-from-scratch handmade soaps! Bathing with them can be a luxurious experience that cleanses, refreshes and delights your senses and your skin.
After using handcrafted soaps, you will most certainly notice how clean your skin feels without the harsh drying film left from commercial soap and you will notice a big difference in the look and feel of your skin...You won't want to go back to the regular store bought stuff. Especially if you've been using these luscious soaps and experience their superior, gentle cleansing and moisturizing nature. You'll be hooked and your body and skin will thank you over and over again.
The process of handcrafting luxurious soaps begins with quality vegetable oils, butters and natural ingedients that are carefully selected for their beneficial and nutrient-rich properties. Next, these oils and butters are gently warmed and blended with lye, creating a pudding or cake batter mixture. To this oil/lye emulsion, essential oils, fragrance oils, clays and botanicals are added giving it texture, color and fragrance. Then the raw, liquid mixture is poured into molds to harden. That's when it turns into soap. The process is called, saponification. That's where the word, soap comes from.
Handcrafted soaps made in small batches to achieve superior quality and individual soap bars carefully cut by hand.....only further emphasize the superior product and gentle quality that can be created by the skilled soapmaker.
Elegantly created - Beautifully packaged with careful attention to every detail...That "is" the charm of handmade soap.
Each soapmaker has their own style and taste which they pass on to you. So, I feel you get a much larger choice in soap when you choose authentic handmade soaps from a craftsperson.
To find soaps made by hand with natural ingredients that are good for you and your skin, look at Bazaars, Farmer's Markets, and Gift Shops. Also, the internet has many websites that feature superb, gourmet-type luxury soaps.
Come back often to see where you can find new natural soaps. I will be adding them below.
