calendula tallow soap

Handmade & All Natural Soaps

We have started listing handmade soaps and there are many more to come! Tallow soaps are what we have been working on the most but I am going to shift and focus on shea butter soaps this week. 

Each of these soaps are great for different reasons. Tallow is very nourishing for the skin and we use a lot of tallow for not just soaps but lotions and other items! Tallow is a very hard soap with good lather and cleaning ability. Shea butter is a softer soap with good lather and cleaning ability.

What does this mean for you? The user? Tallow lasts longer than Shea butter soaps because it is a harder soap! Tallow bars are a bit larger than the Shea butter as well. Tallow is more expensive because of the cost of tallow, the process of rendering it and the longer lasting properties.

While both are great for your skin, Tallow is more similar to human skin. Shea butter would be considered "vegan" Tallow is obviously not, so if that is a thing for you I recommend Shea butter over Tallow! And as a side note, cows are not harvested for Tallow, it is a bi-product of processing the animal.

The biggest thing about our soap is, we wanted as close to "old school" as possible. We are so tired of everything having  man made chemicals and scents (aka toxic preservatives) and we wanted to get back to the very basics in soap and skin and hair care.

Our soaps have no dye's, the colors come from natural things like an herb with color or a nut powder, so we are rather limited on stunning colors to offer you. They have no fruity or flowery scents and although I love to pick up a bar of soap and smell it, I don't want to use it on my skin. Dare I say it, in that way our soaps are boring but the reason I started doing this was to do away with the chemicals and toxins in everyday products and that, as well as making effective products is why I do, what I do. I cannot compromise my values for a few seconds of flowery scent. Even if it means I never sell a bar of soap! 

We hope you agree but in the event that you don't, it is ok :) There are probably a half a million people out there making bright colored, scented soaps that will be very grateful for the business!
