All Natural Handmade Goatsmilk Soap

The following handmade soaps are made from scratch, 100% natural and scented with only pure essential oils (we have also introduced a line of scented oil soaps) .  Using this soap may be the nicest thing you could do for your skin.  Essential oils are anti-bacterial, anti-fungal and anti-viral and have been used for thousands of years to increase quality of life.  Soaps are made from saponified olive, coconut, palm, castor, hemp seed oil and soybean oils which produce an exceptional product.  Essential oils, goatsmilk, vitamin E, spices, herbs, exfoliants and other emollients such as cocoa butter are added after saponification (a fancy word for turning oils to soap), to retain health benefits and to give superb moisturizing and skin softening capabilities. 

This fine soap is cold processed where temperatures do not exceed 130 degrees, so results are a high quality, rich and creamy product with a wonderfully smooth lather.  It is perfect as a bath or facial bar.  Our goatsmilk soap is a lovely moisturizer and skin balancer.

*A sensible note:  As with any skin care product, if you have allergies or sensative skin, please test first on a small area of skin.  Due to it's natural state, soaps may vary slightly in color, texture or scent. 

*Store in a cool dry place.

*Tested only on willing friends and family members.
