Body Butters
Our body butter is fabulous and we make no apologies for saying so! In fact, we believe that our butter is so good that you won't want to use any other lotions on your skin. Some of the many ingredients we put into our butter include: coconut oil, palm oil, shea butter, beeswax, pomegranate extract, Noni juice extract, olive fruit extract, green tea extract, to name just a few.

Cedar Soap Dishes For Customers Near Livonia MI
Our cedar soap holders are perfect for keeping your Soap Making dry and ready for each use. Because our soaps retain their glycerin, a natural humectant important for the skin, our soaps must be kept out of watery soap dishes. If you leave your soap in water, it will begin to get mushy because that valuable glycerin absorbs into the water (remember, it's a humectant?). Keep your soaps dry and happy, raised up on our cedar soap holders!

Handmade Soaps Near Livonia MI
Yes, store brand soaps/commercial soaps do, indeed, cost less. But there are a few things to consider right off the bat. The skin is the largest organ in our body. Just as we take oxygen in through our lungs which, in turn, provides oxygen to our blood and organs, the skin "breathes" as well. It takes in oxygen, and whatever else is in the air. Not only that, whatever we put onto our skin is absorbed into the body as well. It's something to think about the next time you slather on some lotion containing parabens and various other proven cancer-causing preservatives.

Commercial Soap Companies
When it comes to soap, commercial companies remove glycerin, naturally made through saponification, or the process whereby soap is created through the mixing of oils and salts. Commercial companies remove this valuable glycerin to use in other products such as lotions, food, etc. Many sell it to other companies; some use it themselves, depending on the range of products their company offers. Handmade soap retains its glycerin - a natural humectant that draws moisture to the skin and helps in the production of natural sebum. Commercial soaps dry the skin and wash off much of the sebum that is needed to keep our skin healthy. Their soaps leave a film behind that doesn't allow skin to breathe properly. It's a vicious cycle and not only leaves our skin looking and feeling bad but, quite honestly, can effect our health.

Our Ingredients
Our Soap Making contain olive oil, water, coconut oil, palm oil, shea butter, acai berry butter, sodium hydroxide, castor oil, essential oils and/or phthalate-free fragrance oils. Our soaps are all vegan except for our Blackberries & Sage Swiss Goat's Milk soap which uses, obviously, goat's milk, for added emollience. Our Thai Lemongrass soap uses coconut milk, also known for its emollient effects.
