I suppose my desire to make soap began when I was a child. One day, when I had the house all to myself, the chemist in me thought how neat it would be to actually make soap. I grabbed an old bar of hotel soap, broke it in pieces, added water, and proceeded to cook it. As you can imagine, all I had was a BIG mess and a little disappointment. Oh well. At least I tried, right?!
Since then, I have learned to make a real batch of soap and it has not only benefited my family, but my customers and their families too. There are no detergents or petroleum residues in my soap, as they can be drying and irritating to your skin. This is especially important to me because some members of my family have sensitive skin.
I use all-natural vegetable oils in my soap. My soaps are scented with natural essential oils and/or skin-safe fragrances. If colorants are used, they are also skin-safe. Some of my soaps also contain goat’s milk or coconut milk. Milk soaps tend to be milder soaps due to the properties of the milk fat content. (For example, the Oatmeal Milk & Honey soap. It’s one of my best sellers.) I also have a Pine Tar soap, which uses pine tar and an essential oil blend. My shaving soaps are formulated to get a rich, creamy lather with a nice amount of “slip” for a great shave.
