About Your Soap

All our soaps and skincare products have been assessed by a Chartered Chemist specialising in the Cosmetic Craft Industry. We are registered with the EU Cosmetics Notification System as well as being members of the Guild of Craft Soap & Toiletry Makers.

Caring for your soap

  • Before use, store soap in a dry, dark place.
  • A new soap may have a slight dusty white powder on it, this is perfectly normal and will disappear after its first use.
  • Handmade soaps do not lather like synthetic commercial soaps; it may take a couple of uses before getting the full lather from a soap slice.
  • Allow handmade soap to fully dry between uses to increase its longevity. We supply soap dishes for this purpose.
  • Our soaps are handmade, handcut, and hand wrapped so by their very nature will have some variation between batches.

 

Caring for your salt soap

  • Our wonderful Salt Soaps are more crumbly, wear down slightly quicker and are more brittle than normal soap!
  • Due to their high salt content Salt Soaps may sting if used on damaged skin.
  • If stored incorrectly salt soap attracts water from air humidity causing it to look like sweat... this does not affect the soaps performance.

 

Caring for your liquid soap

  • Liquid Soap is more aqueous than commercial soaps and their clarity can vary alot between batches.
  • Before use, turn the liquid soap upside down and back again (shaking not required)!
  • Nozzle pump dispensers can squirt so care needs to be taken when dispensing - cover the nozzle with your entire hand.
