Our soaps and body
products are all made in our farm kitchen, using
high quality oils, herbs and fragrances. No "melt & Pour" or
stock is used in our products. Everything is made from
just like grandma used to do. The only difference is that we
a stick blender to shorten the stirring time.
We make products to suit a variety of customers. Most of our
products are all natural using herbs to color and essential oils for
fragrance. However some items do have high end fragrance oils
FDA approved colorants. We do make products without fragrance
color for those with sensitive skin.
I have heard some vendors tout that their soaps do not contain lye.
All true soaps are made by combining a lye and water mixture
oils. When thoroughly mixed, called trace, the lye and oils
literally combust....heating up to a gel phase. This is known
saponification. During this process the lye burns away and
residue left behind is soap. What is on the market today may
be soap, but a chemical mixture that can potentially harm the skin.
Our soap products are superfatted by 5% to ensure that all lye is
away. This means that we add 5% more oils than lye so that
remaining soap has a higher concentration of conditioning oils.
There are two processes we use for soap making. Cold process
soaps are stirred to trace (thickened) and then poured into molds,
insulated and allowed to go through the gel phase. This needs
cure 6 weeks before we put this in the inventory. Hot process
soap is cooked at 200 degrees until saponification occurs.
cooling fragrance is added prior to putting the soap in the mold.
This soap can be used immediately since the lye has been
away. Both methods produce an excellent bar of soap. We allow hot
process soaps to cure for 2 weeks to harden the bar.
Lotions and creams are also made with high quality oils. Both
concentrated and last a long time. Our products can be used
