NATURAL FIR NEEDLE SOAPS Read here to find out more.
InformationAll soaps are made with natural ingredients and contain our fir needles, fresh and powdered with added essential and fragrance oils.
We use top quality melt and pour soap bases to create our unique soaps made with our custom molds. Each soap is hand poured when ordered so allow a few days for processing.
All soaps are shrink-wrapped with labels. If you would like the soap gift packaged in a small box with clear cover, please note that in the comments box when ordering.
The Olive Oil based soap with Hemp Seed oil is the darker soap. The dark opaque appearance is created when the fir needle powder is mixed in. It is not "black soap".
The Coconut Oil base is the lighter green soap with Shea Butter and Aloe. Both soaps contain Palm Oil, Safflower Oil, Glycerin, Purified Water, Sodium Hydroxide (saponifying agent), Sorbitol (moisturizer), Sorbitan Oleate (emulsifier) and Soybean Protein (conditioner).
All our soaps contain our fresh fir needles and dried powder with fir needle essential and fragrance oils. Every batch is slightly different. The face of the soap is the first pour without the fir needles for appearance, appeal, and to give your soap a smooth side. The second pour is packed with fir needle powder for fragrance, fir needle property benefits, and the loofah side.
Bathing with this fir needle soap is an experience.
If you are not familiar with glycerin soap, keep reading.
Our soaps are made with bases of saponified oils (sodium hydroxide added to oils to create soapiness) Saponified oil soaps are about as close to natural or organic as you can get. All our soaps contain 15-20% vegetable glycerin. Glycerin is a great humectant (moisturizer) because it attracts moisture from the air to your skin rather than absorbing moisture from your skin and drying it out. That being said, it also attracts moisture to your bar of soap if it is sitting in a continuous humid environment. You will notice that your bar of soap will sparkle with dew. It can actually be quite attractive and is harmless. You are going to wet your soap to use it anyway and the "glycerin dew" is moisture drawn from the air not the soap. They sometimes call it sweating but that isn't the same thing as a human body sweating. When your body sweats, the moisture is coming from inside your skin. Glycerin is absorbing moisture from the air. Like rain...it's just water....enjoy it.
