Our soaps and shampoo bars come in boxes and are made using the finest ingredients and all natural.  We do not use any artificial colours, fragrances or additives.  Our soap is 100% biodegradable and is non toxic and is not harmful to the environment.  We make our soap and shampoo in small batches from our home  We use a correct dosage of sodium hydroxide, otherwise know as lye in the making of the soap. It is water soluble is used to cause a reaction called saponification to create soap and is completely safe after it has been combined with the other constituents, such as the oils used, and left to cure for a month or so.  After one month to five weeks of curing, the soap is devoid of the sodium hydroxide as it has been neutralised out of the soap. leaving a gentle and kind cleaning agent for the skin and hair.  

Essential oils are added for fragrance. See each individual bar for details
