ARTISAN SOAP & CLASSES
ABOUT OUR SOAP
Cold process soap making utilizes a process called saponification to render oils & sodium hydroxide (lye) into salt & glycerin. Commonly oils of olive, coconut & palm are used, as well as shea butter for greater moisturizing. The mixture of oils, colours, scents & additives can customize the character of the soap in infinite ways.
Artisan soap is gentle for dry, sensitive skin & by nature a simpler soap than commercial products by eliminating mystery ingredients like petroleum & preservatives.
