1. Why Hand Made Soaps?
A: Generally, Hand Made Soaps use fresh, high-quality ingredients like Essential Oils, Shea Butter, Coconut Oil, Olive Oil, Palm Oil, Castor Oil, Hempseed Oil, Jojoba Oil, Oatmeal, Beer and Goat’s Milk, to name a few. Hanna-Made Soaps do not have added synthetic preservatives. Some Essential Oils, such as Tea Tree, can serve as a natural preservative. Commercial soaps add extra preservatives so they can sit on the shelves longer and keep costs down. Irritating surfactants, detergents and dyes round off the not-so-wholesome list. Imagine what this does to your Skin - the largest organ of your body. Hand Made Soaps make your skin feel very moisturized also!
An important point to note - Using Bar soap helps the environment by eliminating the plastic bottles used for liquid soaps
2. How do I keep my Soaps dry?
A: Use a Soap dish that allows the water to drain away from the Soaps. Do not let the Soaps sit in water as they will not last as long. Other ideas if a Soap dish is not available include
- Sitting your soap on top of a folded facecloth
- Sitting your soap on top of a sponge
- Sitting your soap on top of a foot brush or foot scrubber
3. How are your Soaps made?
A: Our Soaps are made using the Cold Process method. Cold process soap is made by combining oils and sodium hydroxide (lye), which causes a chemical reaction called saponification. In the process, you get to choose the oils, scents, colorants, and any other ingredients. We let our soap cure for 4-6 weeks, which creates harder and milder bars that last longer in the shower.
4. Why are some of my soaps not stamped with the Hanna-Made Soaps name?
A: Some of the Soap recipes are too hard to be stamped - ones like the Patchouli Soap and the Salt Soap are Coconut Oil Soaps and they make a very hard bar of Soap.
5. Why is my Soap different than the picture shown?
A: Because each soap bar is made entirely by hand, soap color, shape and size vary slightly from bar to bar. We also experiment with toppings on different batches!
