Handmade, Organic Cold-Pressed Soap

 

'Saponification is the chemical reaction that occurs when fats or oils (fatty acids) come into contact with lye (a base).  Saponification literally means "soap making" from the root word 'sapo', which is latin for soap.  The by-products of the saponification reaction are soap and glycerin.'

 

The Ingredients

I use wonderful raw organic coconut oil and the finest grade organic cocoa butter as the main ingredients for the soap.  Coconut oil is a wonderful emolient, as is the cocoa butter, which is also soothing to the skin.

I don't add any colourings or perfume oils to the soap - I only use essential oils and natural plant additives (eg, dried lavender, dried orange peel, ground almonds).

As there are no animal products in this soap it is suitable for both vegetarians and vegans.

This soap has not been tested on animals.  People with sensitive skins should test a small area of skin prior to first use.

 

Also available in the bath products range are the Fabulous Bath Fizzes, Organic Bath Melts, Natural Bath Salts and Organic Body Scrubs.  New are the Organic towelling Face Cloths and the Cleanser pads.

 

 All these gorgeous products can be purchased at many of the events Handmade Haven attends throughout the year. They are also available in my Etsy Soap Shop.
