Sonia grew up in Brazil and watched her mother make soap. When she came to the USA she began to make soap as a hobby and gave it away to friends and relatives. After getting positive comments from those using the soaps, in the fall of 1999 she and her husband, Glenn, formed the business to sell the soap commercially.
We currently make over 60 varieties of all-natural soap. Soap is made by combining fats with lye (sodium hydroxide). The resulting chemical reaction forms 3 molecules of soap and 1 molecule of glycerin. In commercial soap production, the glycerin is usually extracted from the soap and sold as a byproduct. Our soaps all contain the naturally derived glycerin, with its wonderful moisturizing properties. Historically, soaps were made using animal fats. In fact, most commercially produced soaps are still made with a high proportion of animal fats.
All of our soaps are made from scratch. Instead of animal fats, we use a variety of 100% food-grade vegetable oils, including olive oil, coconut oil, avocado oil, almond oil, castor oil, apricot kernel oil, rice bran oil, cherry kernel oil, soybean oil, safflower oil, Argan oil, shea butter, mango butter, cocoa butter, aloe vera, and many others. We do NOT USE PALM OIL in any of our soaps. We develop our own recipes and have over 30 different ones that we use – each one having unique properties and characteristics. Our recipes are formulated such that during the soap making process the lye is totally consumed, but some of the vegetable oils remain in their natural state in the final bar. Thus, as one bathes, many of these beneficial oils are being naturally absorbed into the skin.
The colors of our soaps are all derived from natural ingredients, including herbs, spices, botanicals, and clays. Before we pour the soap into molds we add pure essential oils, smelling great and containing natural aromatherapy properties. For instances where a specific scent is not available in an essential oil, we incorporate cosmetic-grade fragrance oils. After our soaps are removed from the mold, they are cut and allowed to fully cure for 3 to 6 weeks. This assures that they will be mild, gentle, and long-lasting.
We offer many specialized and unique soaps such as our highly effective Beauty-and-the-Bug™ all-natural bug repellent soap, Olive 100™ - 100% olive oil soap, Dr. Wag’s™ All-Natural Dog Soap which effectively reduces/eliminates dry skin and scratching, Tea Tree soap with many medicinal and cleansing properties, Fisherman’s Fancy that removes the lingering smell of fish, onions, and garlic from hands, Rocks™ soap for extreme exfoliation, and many others.
In addition to our soaps, we also make “That Amazing Stuff” Solid Moisturizing Bars and Whipped Shea Butter. When the Solid Moisturizing Bar comes in contact with your skin, your body temperature softens the bar and the ingredients rehydrate your skin. It is not oily or greasy. These all-natural products normally repair dry or cracked skin in just a couple of days. Many customers get soothing results with our Psoriasis and Eczema Relief formula.PO Box 78
