How long will my bar of soap last?
Typically if you follow our suggestions for use and storing, you can expect your bar to last 4-6 weeks with normal daily use.
What can I do to extend the life of my bar of soap?
Allow your bar to completely dry between uses by storing on a soap deck/tray or soap saver pad that allows air to flow around it and water to drain. Keeping your bar out of pooled water or steady stream of water will help in extending the life as well. Using a cloth, sponge, etc and avoid of rubbing bar directly over body will help as well.
Does your soap contain lye?
Yes, I use lye (sodium hydroxide) to make my soap. Without it – no soap. While it’s used for making soap, there is no lye present in the final product – it’s all used up during the saponification process.
Are your soaps safe for those with sensitive skin or for babies?
Our soaps are very gentle on skin, I make very careful consideration of ingredients used to create nourishing and gentle soap. However, I recommend reading through the ingredients which are listed in the product description of all of my products to be certain there is nothing you are sensitive to. We do have unscented bars and skincare products available for those who are sensitive and/or allergic to coconut oil/almond oil or certain butters and essential oils. It’s always a good idea to do a patch test on a small area of skin to test out the soap/product before using if you are uncertain of a possible sensitivity or allergy.
Where do your soaps and skincare products get their fragrance from?
All of our soaps and skincare products get their scents from only pure essential oils. We do not use fragrance oils in any of our handcrafted products as the majority of fragrances are synthetic and contain phthalates. We choose to use essential oils in our soaps more for the aromatherapy and therapeutic benefits, any scent left behind is an added benefit (I have had many tell me that once they get their soap wet the natural scent from the essential oils permeates the steam from your shower). Essential Oils are “delicate” in my opinion and do not leave a “fragrance” on your skin after washing, soap is a wash off product and it is not meant to leave a smell on your skin it is meant to clean your skin. Scents left from conventional soaps on skin are there mostly because of phthalates in the fragrance. Phthalates are a plastic chemical that sit on your skin. Our soaps are nourishing and gentle on the skin without any of that icky stuff, if you prefer to have a scent left behind might I suggest some of our body butters or body oils using essential oils to offer fragrance.
I have a bar of soap saved from 6 months or more from you, is it still safe to use?
Absolutely! As a matter of fact as long as your bar was stored in a cool and dry location it has had even longer time to cure…think of your bar as a bottle of good french wine, the longer its aged the better it is. The same concept goes for soap, a longer curing time allows for a harder bar and one that will generate good luscious lather. The only drawback to it sitting for longer period is that the essential oils may have dissipated somewhat so the scent may not be as strong any longer.
