There are a few big differences between our products and most commercially produced products.
The first is that we produce our bars using the cold-process method, which requires a chemical reaction between the oils/fats and sodium hydroxide called saponification to create the soap. Most commercial soaps are manufactured on a large scale and are composed of one or more man-made surfactants (detergents) plus a number of other chemicals, colorants and perfumes.
Another difference is that we avoid all artificial colours and fragrances in our soaps. We rely only on the base oils plus clays, charcoal, spices and some essential oils for the colour and smell of our products.
A third big difference is that solid soaps do not need to be packaged into plastic the way liquid soaps usually are. This allows us to avoid buying unnecessary single-use plastic - most of which ends up in our landfills.
