All About Handmade Soap Products

My Naples Home Services Celebrates 37 years in 2018

It would not be uncommon after all this time of professional housekeeping to take a bit more interest in soap products that can be used for personal use.
This is just the beginning when introducing natural solutions to hand crafted soaps. Many of us prefer natural cleaning products to clean our homes so why not use wholesome ingredients for skin care as well. 

What are some natural ways to incorporate color and pigment when making handmade soap?

The answer? 

It’s a wonderful thing that more people everywhere are beginning to embrace many items made by hand. Handmade matters, so why not take a moment to provide more natural ingredients. ... It’s a process and rare that any two items will be exactly the same. 
That’s what makes small handmade businesses so special. 

Natural clay and root colorants were used to make the white and gold tones in the soap above providing exfoliation, antioxidants and other benefits. These natural powders would include chamomile and turmeric. The body of the soap was untouched and derived from the liquid of goat milk, honey, olive oil, cocoa butter, shea, and coconut oil. 

FRAGRANCE, is the value that breaks all the rules in soap making. The elements that appeal to so many and send others running in the opposite direction. Though not uncommon to see “fragrance” in the label of handmade soap, it is a duplicated aromatic ingredient accepted for the lack of benefits and simply a desired perfume. I myself love fragrances for what they are and are selective in their usage. 

True Handmade Soap does not use a fragrance though the fruit to our senses, using aromatherapy natural oils extracted from flowers, bark, leaves and other plant extracts which positively affect physical and emotional health. Well... with all of those lovely additives it’s no wonder we can’t walk away from the soap counter.  
Natural root colorants and clay may not provide the true vibrant color in soap that you see when purchasing detergent store brands, but the characteristics of all ingredients is admired and sought out by those that preserve a true interest in the beneficial qualities that heal and protect the skin. It’s beautiful, amazing and special and that’s a “handmade” full of lovely.

Hello, Thank you for your comment. Handcrafted Artisan Soaps are not only wholesome, but they are an art all within themselves. on Monday, September 30, 2019 2:08 AM
I love your products, especially the handmade soaps! It has been years since I stopped using soaps that you buy from the stores. For people with sensitive skin like me handmade soaps are better as they use only natural ingredients. The harsh chemicals in some commercial soaps make me break out. Handmade soaps are a little expensive but it is good for my skin. I don't mind that as long as I avoid break outs. It is much more expensive visiting the dermatologist and purchasing skin treatments.

Thank you for your lovely comment. I too have not used a store bought bar soap in years. Naturally made soap heals the skin in so many ways.

Hello thank you for your question about handmade natural soap. Many types of carrier oils such as sweet almond, olive, apricot, rosehip, primrose and more than several others are used in handmade recipes. These soaps are incredible for the skin, contributing to healing, reducing fine lines, scars, stretch marks, great for dry skin and eczema, psoriasis and loaded with vitamins. I cannot express how beneficial a good, well thought out handmade bar soap is to those that appreciate the process.

Do you like handmade soap products? I've heard it's not hard to make them. Maybe I am wrong.
