"It all started in 2002 when a girl (that would be me - Heather) couldn’t knit." "When you make soap, you make pounds at a time. So to justify to my husband why I had to make more soap I gave it away to anyone who would take it. As I was formulating recipes and experimenting with ingredients, I was perfecting my products. The people who I once had to beg to take products off my hands started making requests and insisting on paying for them." We make our soaps from scratch the same way grandma did (with the exception of digital scales & refined ingredients) & each ingredient in our bars has a purpose. Our soaps lather well (really because we're lather kinda people) & will clean your skin without leaving you with that dry, tight, alligator skin feeling. Because our soaps are made the old fashioned way, each bar retains the glycerin that is naturally produced in the soap making process.
