Frequently Asked Questions
Q: Is a natural bar of soap better for my skin than commercial personal care products?
A: Yes! A quality bar of soap is free from sulfates, surfactants, parabens and other preservatives that can damage your skin. Artisan bar soap is crafted in small batches with ethically sourced raw ingredients like olive oil, avocado oil, shea butter and plant based oils. These premium oils and butters are slowly melted to perfection and often combined with foreign clays, silks and other exotic ingredients for your cleansing ritual.
Q: Why buy handcrafted soap?
A: Commercial manufacturers remove the nourishing glycerin by product from soap to add to other products. This is why so many commercial soap products strip your skin of its natural oils and leave it dry. Handcrafted soaps also contains no harsh chemical detergents or lathering agents. Only products created through the saponification process of combining lye, water and oils can be labeled and sold as “Soap”. It is always a good idea to read product labels and ingredient lists.
Q: Why did the bar I receive look different from the product picture?
A: Each bar is unique and many are cut by hand. The images show a representation of what the bars in the finished batch look like, but there may be some variations as no two bars are identical.
Q: Is the soap edible?
A: No, although we strive to make our body bars look like treats good enough to eat, please don’t taste them, they are NOT food.
Q: How much does one bar of soap weigh?
A: 4-9oz depending on the style. Please be advised that our artisan soaps are hand-cut and sizes may vary slightly from bar to bar.
Q: How do I use the soap?
A: On a wet pouf, washcloth or hands. Work into a rich, creamy lather, massage into skin and rinse.
Q: How do I take care of my soap?
A: When storing your soap be sure it is in a cool, dry place out of direct sunlight. After using your handcrafted soap, allow your soap to dry between uses. Do not allow soap to sit in water. Please use a draining soap dish to help prolong the life of your soap bar.
