All Soaps Are Not Created Equally

There are a lot of choices for you to make when it comes to purchasing handmade soap. Why choose our soap? I have over 23 years experience handcrafting soap, candles, wax melts and laundry soap.

I got my start in 1995 when we moved from California to Indiana. My skin was not used to the four seasons here and the hard water.  Making soap was my way to deal with the extreme temperatures here.  I went on a 5 year learning curve before I sold a single bar of soap.

There are a great many wonderful soapmakers. What I have that many of them lack is experience in saponification.  I don't cut corners and I don't add food to my soaps. Yes, some people will throw in fruit or pureed vegetables into soap!  What's the guarantee that this will stay free from contamination? I don't make up my own rules. I follow the protocol for how to make soap and follow it precisely.  I don't just use olive, coconut and palm. I am folding in extras like flaxseed, avocado, hemp and african shea butter, because you deserve nothing less than the best quality.
