- How long do your soaps last?
A 4-4.5 oz bar of soap generally lasts approx. 30 days with daily use. A 5-5.5 oz bar will last approx. up to 45 days with single-person general daily use.
**Note: Want your bar to last as long as possible, keep bars dry in between uses. We will be offering soap dishes very soon. Stay tuned!
- Do you sell anywhere else besides online?
- Do you use (natural) essential oils or (synthetic) fragrance oils?
We use both. In our Collections, you'll find that our "Natural Essentials" and "Goat's Milk" soaps are only created with high-quality cosmetic-grade essential oils; while our Monthly Soap Releases are typically made with phthalate*-free synthetic fragrances. Some scents such as vanilla, coconut, berry, chocolate, and florals cannot be created as an essential oil.
*Phthalates are mainly added to plastics to increase their flexibility, transparency, durability, and longevity. They are also known for disrupting your endocrine/reproductive system.
- Are your soaps vegan?
We only use vegetable-based oils and butters. We do not use tallow, lard, or any other rendering of animal fats in our soaps. While some soaps are not vegan, due to the use of honey and/or goat's milk, they are NOT gluten-free as manufacturing/testing practices and guidelines are too strenuous for my single-person operation. Soaps may contain tree nut oils such as almond oil, as well as coconut oil or coconut milk, and/or avocado oil, wheat germ oil, rice bran oil, and in some instances vitamin E oil. Ingredients are listed with each soap on our Products page. Please feel free to reach out to us if you have any questions about the quality or amounts used in the making of our soaps.
- Why do you use Sodium Hydroxide/Lye?
- Do you use any other types of "chemicals" in your soaps?
Sometimes we use soap-and-skin-friendly chemicals, such as Sodium Lactate (which is essentially a liquid salt, and acts as a hardening agent to help with the unmolding process when using silicone molds). We also may from time to time test a recipe using other synthetic ingredients, such as Potassium Cocoate, Optiphen, or Polysorbate 80. These act as sudsy-agents, preservatives or emulsifiers. We try to do our best to list the reasons why these ingredients are used in particular recipes and/or products. If you find a listing on our website that doesn't explain what/why the ingredient was used, please feel free to email us a informative request here.
