Many years ago I made an amazing discovery…all those lovely bars of soap at the local store were not actually bars of soap…they were bars of detergent! The “soap” companies had actually removed the glycerin, because they could sell that for a higher price, and sold us the leftovers. The most important part of the soap, the part that moisturizes our skin, was missing.
I also found all sorts of nasty chemicals, additives, dyes, perfumes , etc., were added to our “detergent” bars. Since the skin is the largest organ of the body, what we put on our skin finds its way into our bloodstream. I wondered how this was affecting our health. The more I read the more concerned I became. Many of the chemicals used are hormone disrupters! All of these “little things” add up over the years when it comes to our health.
I committed to making pure soap. Pure oils, no color unless it came from herbs, clays or spices. Pure essential oils instead of fragrances (read chemicals)! No preservatives and no chemicals of any kind. These were going on my babies and it had to be pure!
Then I began to study & experiment! I made soaps that lathered, soaps that invigorated, a soap for working outside that had an exfoliant to help get the dirt off when I was done working. I made a soap that moisturized the skin.
I make about 150 bars of artisan soap a month in small batches and create different scents as my inspiration or customer requests leads me.
I encourage you to leave the toxins behind and try my artisan soaps; no toxins, great lather, and moisturizing to your skin!
