About Soap Making
Why choose handcrafted cold process soap? Cold process soap is better because of the ingredients. Our base recipe is made of oils you know, and what could be better than natural oils on your skin cleaning products? Our soaps are also sulfate and phthalate free. Plus, handcrafted cold process soap, unlike commercial "beauty bars" is real soap!
What is Cold Process Soap? Cold process soap is soap that is made of two main ingredients, fats (oils and butters) and a saponifying agent (sodium hydroxide). When mixing these ingredients together a chemical reaction occurs, the sodium hydroxide saponifies the oils and butters and turns it all into a whole new product, soap.
Why does soap need to cure? Because soap is made with water, in order for the soap to last longer and become a hard bar, it needs to evaporate all the water used. this process is called curing and it can take from 4-6 weeks. In order for us to provide you with a high quality bar, all of our products are completely cure before being put up in our website.
How long will my order take to ship? We send orders out in 2-4 days. Then it takes about 4-6 days for delivery, so long as there are not delays with USPS.
Do you do special orders? (for your business or event) Yes! We do special orders. These include; party favors, wedding favors, business special edition soaps etc. Keep in mind that cold process soap needs 4-6 weeks curing time, so make sure that you order at least 6 weeks in advance. Send us an email through the "Contact Us" page.
Will my soaps always look the same? One of the beautiful things about soapmaking is that it is a unique art. We try to keep the designs for each soap in regards to colors, and tones, but our soaps being handcrafted items, will never be exact replicas. They all are very uniquely pretty!
How do I make my soaps last longer? Make sure you store your soap in a dry place between uses. Also, use a soap saver that drains water.
