Our handmade soaps are specially formulated to deliver the very best in skin care while using only safe, truly natural ingredients. We never use solvent extracted pomace olive oil (even though it's much cheaper), harmful synthetic chemicals, preservatives, petroleum products, artificial dyes, or synthetic fragrance oils.   Why?  Because natural matters!  With so many companies falsely claiming to be "all natural", we're proud to say that our commitment to natural is real.

We handcraft our soap using the slow cold process method, which means no external heat is used so the goodness of the natural ingredients are preserved for you.  Each bar begins with a high percentage of skin-loving cold pressed olive oil to which we add food grade coconut, organic palm and castor oils for a rich creamy lather that nourishes as it moisturizes.  Next we add responsibly wildcrafted and organic botanicals, vegetable butters, and cleansing earth clays for their exceptional skin care benefits.  Finally, we scent our fragrant olive oil soaps with only pure essential oils extracted from plants . . .fresh clean scents, the way mother nature intended.  


So how can you tell fake soap from real soap

real soap

fake soap

Fake synthetic soap stuff is defined as all those mostly synthetic, so called "soaps" that are full of harsh detergents and cancer causing chemicals . . . the ones that fill the shelves of many stores today. This includes those pretty "glycerin" soaps shown above (real handmade soap contains much more natural glycerin than those do), most of the commercial shower gels and liquid soaps on the market, many of the supposedly "natural" soaps found at your local health food store, the highly touted "hypoallergenic" soaps recommended by dermatologists (there's no such thing), and virtually all of those triple milled ooh-la-la French soaps.  Check out the ingredients (if they bother to give you any) and you'll see just how many cheap oils or animal fats (also known as sodium tallowate) and synthetic petro-chemicals their so called "soaps" really contain. Don't buy into it!

I would like to recommend to anyone interested in all-natural soaps. I have been using their soaps for some months now and although I have tried other natural soaps, I haven't found a product I like better. Not only do they have a great selection, but they are well priced and the bars are large and long-lasting so you get a good value for your money. Their website,, is easy to use and very descriptive. I love it!
