Without a doubt, the ingredients found in our HANDMADE soap are better for your skin than the harsh detergents and toxic chemicals found in the commercial stuff. Our list of ingredients consists of unrefined, nutrient-rich vegetable oils, natural botanicals, purifying earth clays, tropical butters, and aromatherapy grade ESSENTIAL OILS.
Not all handmade soaps are equal in quality. Some are made with less nutritious oils and animal fat. While others contain man-made fragrances. Our ALL-NATURAL, plant-based ingredients are carefully selected to create a better soap, superior to many in cleansing, nurturing and moisturizing your skin.
