Why choose handmade?

Did you realize that our skin is actually an organ? Our skin is more than just a fleshy surface of pimples, wrinkles and tattoos. It is a complex system of of pores, glands and nerves working together to protect us from the outside and inside of our body and is made up of 3 layers.

The outer most layer of skin is the epidermis, and it is in charge of making new skin cells, protecting the skin, and skin color. This is the layer of skin that absorbs what you put on it, this includes soap. Yes, every time you wash your hands your skin is right there to absorb it. There is loads of research that connects how chemicals absorbed through the skin into the bloodstream cause long term damage.

This is one of the reasons we choose to provide a better and more accessible alternative to commercial soaps. Knowing exactly what we put into our soaps is a big deal to us. Each of our soap bars is made in small batches to maintain the integrity of the nutrients, oils, and vitamins.

Most commercial soaps are not actual soaps, instead they are detergent bars or "beauty bars". Containing mostly synthetic detergents that they can manufacture cheaply and completely strip the skin of it's moisture, or they chemically alter the product to extract the natural glycerin of the soap to put into higher priced items, such as lotions and creams.

The glycerin and oils in soap is one of the key ingredients that protects your skin from drying out after you dry off. If your soap doesn’t have the natural glycerin or oils, your skin becomes dry and you'll need lotion to moisturize it. See how that works?
