$6.50

Description

Hand cut bar is typically 2″ wide x 3.25″ tall x 1″ thick, 3.25 oz

Use it as a facial bar, hand soap or in the shower.

Our soaps take on their natural hue due to the real, fresh goats milk and essential oils/fragrance extract. We do not put any whiteners, tints, colorants on dyes in our soaps so you can experience a natural cleansing process.

Ingredients: Goats milk, sustainably sourced palm oil, rice bran oil, soy oil, coconut oil, lye, fragrance

The process
We make our soap using the traditional cold process method. We mix plant oils with goats milk and lye to transform the original ingredients into soap. Each batch of soap yields 5, 11, or 22 bars. We keep our batches small so we can offer a wide variety of scents and ensure you are receiving the highest quality soap. Our soaps cure for 4 weeks after production to harden the bar. This is why special orders have a 6 week lead time.

The scents
Our soaps are scented with essential oils or fragrance blends. We offer fragrance blends for our customers who prefer certain scents such as floral scents.  It’s not possible to offer most floral scents using essential oils- you just can’t squeeze enough oil out of those darn flowers! All of our essential oils and fragrance blends are formulated specifically for topical use in soaps.

The benefits of goats milk
Goats milk offers unique, nourishing fatty acids, such a caproic acid, caprylic acid and capric acid. These fatty acids are named after their source, the goat. The scientific name for the domestic goat is Capra hircus. Goats milk also provides protein, B-vitamins, vitamin A, and choline.

Why lye
Customers often ask me why we use lye in our soap. Lye is the active ingredient that transforms the plant oils into soap. This is a process called “saponification.” Plant oils are made up of triglycerides, which are comprised of three fatty acids attached to a glycerol backbone. During saponification, the lye separates fatty acids from the glycerol. The fatty acids gain a “water loving” head when they are separated from the glycerol.  They still retain their “oil loving” tail. The combination of the “water loving” head and the “oil loving” tail allows the saponified fatty acid to cleanse the skin. An added benefit of cold process saponification is the release of glycerol which is also called glycerine. Glycerine is an effective moisturizer. The lye is neutralized during saponification and is no longer caustic or dangerous.
