As with many soapers, I believe people have the right to know what they are using in their homes and on their bodies. Below you will find what I do and do not put in my soaps.
**No Palm or Palm Kernel Oil ever!**
**Fragrance oils are always phthalate free**
**I also soap with essential oils and have scent free soaps**
**All liquid oils are certified organic**
**Which means 30+% to 100% of our base recipes are organic**
**I like to enhance my soaps with botanicals, herbs, clays, infused oils and activated charcoal, which often will lend color to the soap. It may stay true or over time fade but will always add character.**
**I have begun to add, by request, more vibrant colors to my soaps. These colors are from eco-glitters, FD&C liquid colorant (for liquid & melt n pour soaps) and neon pigments that I buy from Nurture Soap who's colorants I trust**
If you'd like to see my organic oils certifications, please email me and I will be happy to share that with you.

Any phthalate free fragrances, essential oils, clay, infused oils, or other additives will be disclosed on that product's page.A note on lye:
As with all handcrafted soap (and melt and pour soaps), the only way to create soap is with a lye solution, which is usually water and lye.
My bar soaps are created with sodium hydroxide, also known as caustic soda.
My liquid soaps are made with potassium hydroxide, also known as caustic potash.
Sometimes the addition of milk, tea, coffee, etc. are used as the liquid portion in part or replaced completely by the water.
Please understand that no lye is left after the saponification process the chemical/magical transformation of acid-based oils and the alkaline/base lye solution comes together to create soap salts and glycerin, i.e. something completely different.
Please also note: I always add extra oils to my recipe, that the lye cannot use, in the soaping world it's known as superfatting.
