Love of my family made me to start making cold processed soaps. My son has severe eczema, so I had to find something good for his skin, something does not make him scratch or irritate his skin in red. Then, I found out about natural soaps. What an eye opening moment!! Since then I never go back to commercial body detergent. I love making soaps. I use natural ingredients such as oils, butters, herbs, spices, essential oils, leaves, dried flower petals, honey, beeswax, coconut milk and/or goat milk.
Cold process soaps are made by mixing oils & butters with lye Solution (called saponification). This process requires a 4-6 week curing time. During curing, moisture in soap evaporates and becomes harder and gentler bar. All of my soaps are weighed a week after they were made.
Our skin is the largest organ of our body, which absorbs whatever we put on it. My goal is very simple which is to keep our skin healthy, moisturized, nourished and in the long run good for our health. No more toxic chemical residues in our organs. Natural soaps and body products are the best gift someone can give and get.
