  • What is Glycerine and why do we use it?
    Glycerin, or glycerol, is derived from plant-based oils. Accidentally discovered in 1779 by a Swedish chemist whilst heating up an olive oil mixture, he identified the final fat as glycerin. Pure glycerin does not contain alcohol, fragrances, or other chemical-based ingredients that could irritate your skin. Glycerin soap is not only vegan-friendly it is also a great option for people with sensitive skin. The bathing process often strips your skins natural oils, whether from hot water or harsh products. Glycerin can help lock in your skin’s natural moisture and prevent over-drying. This may be especially beneficial if you experience drying conditions like: acne dermatitis (eczema) dry skin psoriasis rosacea At the same time, glycerin is non greasy. This means it’s a good choice for anyone with oily or combination skin.

  • Why choose handmade soap?
    The answer is quite simple. The ingredients! Our handcrafted soaps are made with nourishing oils that not only moisturise but also protects your skin. Commercially produced soaps are mass manufactured with tallow (animal fat) and other low cost oils that provide no skin care benefits. Handmade soaps retain all the natural glycerin in the soap unlike mass manufactured bars. Glycerin is a humectant which attracts moisture to the skin. Commercial soaps are often drying because the natural glycerin has been removed during the manufacturing process.
  • I have sensitive skin can I use your soap?
    Yes, most likely you will be able to use all our soaps because they are gentle & contain relatively small amounts of essential oils. All of our soaps are ideal for sensitive skin, but if you do happen to have hypersensitive skin or certain allergies it may be best to test it on a small area of skin first.
  • How long will my soap last?
    This is a good question and depends entirely on how frequently you use it and how you store it between uses. Handmade soap will last anywhere from several weeks to several months. The bar will lasts longer if not set directly in a shower stream or kept a soap dish with the ability to dry between uses.
