Natural Soaps with Natural Ingredients
It all about the Ingredients, they are chosen not just for cleaning but for their refining properties.
I first started making soaps after I wanted to make a natural soaps for my body, just for my personal use. Having acquired sensitive skin over the years I had to take matters in too my own hands. This transition was a natural progression after taking the same step with the way I ate, preparing most of my own meals from scratch (not a fan of reading labels but needed too). That way I knew exactly what was in my food and now I know what's in my Products. After trying several basic recipes, I finally settled on one that I loved and from there started incorporating some natural additives to aid my skin in its function.
