As a sufferer of hand eczema, I started making my own soap in search of a solution to my skin condition. On my soap making journey, I have discovered that pure 100% olive oil Castile Soaps are the mildest and gentlest soaps. In fact, it is the only soap I can use without dreading fissures on my skin. Today, Mama in the Kitchen, a licensed business, focuses on creating 100% olive oil Castile Soaps for you.
Although most of my soaps look scrumptious, they are inedible. They are, however, delicious on the skin.
While everyone is different, I suggest those with skin sensitivities to please kindly test the soap on a small area and wait at least a day to make sure you do not have a reaction to my soaps.
HANDCRAFTED IN SMALL BATCHES
My soaps are handmade in small batches to ensure quality. They are cured for a couple of months to ensure gentleness.
NATURAL and CLEAN
Simplicity and purity are key: the less ingredients, the better.
No: Preservatives, Parabens, SLS, SLES, Unnatural Colours, Palm Oil.
Non-toxic and gentle on the environment.
If any of my soaps are scented, the smell is mild and not overpowering. I choose to use quality essential oils over fragrance oils when economical. When I do use fragrance oils, they are without parabens. Unlike strong perfume, my soaps do not give me a headache when I smell them.
VEGAN and VEGETARIAN SOAPS
No animal fats used.
HOW TO USE
Most of my Castile Soaps benefit from long cure times and you can wait up to a year before using them. In fact, their lather potential may increase. However, the facial soaps with high percentage of oils will be best used within a year of purchase to prevent them from going rancid as they do not contain preservatives. Please also do unwrap your soaps as soon as you get them to allow them to breathe.
Using a loofah, sponge or poof will increase the lather and bubbles of Castile Soaps, if needed. In fact, Castile Soap lathers the same in both hard and soft water.
Most importantly, please allow handcrafted soaps to drain well so that they last longer. You can rest the soap on a dry towel if you do not have a soap dish with holes.
SIZING and SHAPES
Because the soaps are handcrafted, no two soaps will be exactly alike in appearance and weight.
I would be happy to work with you. Please allow at least 2 months for custom soaps.
Shipping costs will vary. FREE domestic shipping for purchases above $75. Willing to ship worldwide.
Once bought, soaps cannot be returned/exchanged.
Please send me a message. I’ll be glad to help you. And before you go, let me know what soaps you dream about!
Thank you for stopping by!
