Natural Handmade Soap
To Cleanse and Still Leave you Feeling Soft and Moisturised
Natural Soaps are much kinder to the skin than commercial soaps because the method used to convert the oils into soap leaves in all of the moisturizing properties of the carefully selected ingredients. The natural by-product of soap is a substance called glycerine. Glycerine is a powerful humectant, which draws moisture to your skin. It might surprise you to know that most commercial soaps are actually not soap at all. They are called “beauty bars”. Beauty bars cannot be called soap because the glycerine has been removed to be used in more expensive beauty products. What you are left with is basically a compressed detergent, or “beauty bar” that ends up stripping the moisture from your skin.
We think soap shouldn’t leave you feeling dry and itchy so that you immediately have to slather on chemically-laden lotion. Soap should cleanse and still leave you feeling soft and moisturized. Our soap aims to do just that. We don’t remove the glycerine from our soap and we give it a nice, hefty super-fat. Super-fatting means that we add just enough extra moisturizing oils to leave your skin soft and conditioned.
High Quality, Nourishing Ingredients
Our soap is made using high quality, nourishing ingredients that were designed (by nature) to benefit your skin. Our soaps are simple, safe and effective. We don’t add any cheap fillers or unnecessary ingredients to our recipes. What does that mean for you? Soaps that are kind to your skin, nourishing and moisturising, naturally.
How Only Natural Soaps are made
Our soaps are handcrafted in the true traditional cold process method where no heat is used during production means that all the precious, beneficial qualities of the oils are kept intact. Each soap is made from pure vegetable oils such as extra virgin olive, coconut oil and hemp oil and scented by infusing the oils with flowers and fresh herbs especially chosen for their skin healing & soothing properties.
For those who know more about soap making, the soaps are made using the cold process which ensures that no oil is ever heated over 40C and that helps retain the oil’s natural skin loving properties. Our handmade soaps are rich in glycerine, which forms naturally during the saponification of the oils. Glycerine is usually removed from commercially produced soaps, which would explain why in the past you may have found soap very drying. Only Natural soaps are truly natural real soaps that moisturise without the need for creams.
So not only are our soaps made from natural saponified oils and have their glycerine retained, but they also have added extra moisturising oils, such as hemp and organic aloe vera. The end result is pure natural soap, which not only produces a rich and creamy lather, but moisturises your skin as it cleanses.
Only Natural Soaps have no added colouring; the colour of our soaps comes from the natural colour of the ingredients used in each recipe.
Our soaps are un-fragranced; the scent of the soap comes entirely from ingredients chosen for their skin nourishing, moisturising and healing properties. Our soaps are suitable for all skin types, as a facial soap, bath soap or shaving soap.
