Handmade Soaps

What is Cold Process Soap?

Soap made through the Saponification Process. “Saponification” is the name given to the chemical reaction by which an alkali (usually sodium hydroxide - also called caustic soda or lye) reacts with fatty oils to make soap.     

If CP Soap is made with lye, will it hurt my skin?

When you follow proper soap-making procedures there isn't any lye at all in your finished cured soap. The "fatty oils" I use are natural from seeds and fruits like Coconut oil, Olive oil, or Avocado oil. These are my Base Oils that I fragrant with Essential oils such as Lavender, and Eucalyptus. I also add Exfoliates such as Oatmeal, Sea Salt, and Brown Sugar for promoting soft and healthy skin. Colorants used are oxides and mica powders, no man made dye or liquid coloring which some individuals may be are allergic to.
