Q: Do your soaps contain parabens or other nasties?
A: We do not use parabens, phthalates, sls in our products.We use organic ingredients and in many cases, for instance our beautiful Calendula flowers, are grown and handpicked right here at the ranch. We use organic cold pressed oils for our soaps and skincare products.
Q: I’ve noticed some other soaps are slightly cheaper. Why buy yours?
A: We use all natural products, and hand make our soaps and skincare in small batches. Other companies may produce soaps and lotions etc using “nature identical” oils that are produced in laboratories. They also may have much larger processing plants or factories.
We are a small family business, committed to producing a quality product that cares for you and the environment. We want you to know that when you use one of our soaps or skincare products, you are choosing a handmade, artisan product, and supporting a business that contributes positively to the world.
Because our soaps are made with such high standards, they are long lasting and therefore a wonderful value- just ensure they are kept dry between uses and store unused soap and skincare products in a cool area. As they are natural, use within 6 to 8 months to ensure best results.
Q:Which charities do you support?
A: We support Smile Train which provides surgery for children with cleft palates, and Project Angel food, which provides meals for those affected with life threatening illnesses. Each handmade wooden gift trays is crafted by, and supports the work of, the Work Training Project, employing adults with disabilities. When we take our soaps from the moulds, there may be some that don’t quite meet our standards for one reason or another. Those soaps we package up and send to women’s shelter, food banks and homeless shelters.
When you buy our soaps and skin care products, you are directly supporting the work of these organizations and helping to make the world a better place.
Q: I have a particular skin type. Which products do you recommend?
A: Each product has different beneficial qualities, we have soaps & creams for each skin type. If you have specific question, please email and we’ll get back to you.
Q: I want to make a gift that I choose myself. How do I do that?
A: We have many beautiful gift baskets on our gift page, however we’re happy to make a custom gift basket, with your choice of products. Just email, if you would like to discuss a custom basket.
Q: Do you make the soaps and skincare products yourself?
A: We make, pour and wrap each and every soap and skincare product ourselves, right here at the ranch. This way we maintain quality control and you get a truly artisan product. Each one is made with love and care, using the finest ingredients. We wouldn’t be happy with anything less.
All natural soap is made when oils and an alkali solution, such as sodium hydroxide(lye) is mixed together causing a chemical reaction called saponification. When using the correct amounts of oils and alkali mixture and the correct temperatures this chemical reaction consumes all the lye and only pure all natural soap remains.
Any variance in shape or color is the natural result of a handcrafted product made in small quantities with love and care. We never use any synthetic fragrances or colors. We do use organic ingredients, natural organic botanicals, often grown right here at our ranch and always pure essential oils, which we like to custom blend for each of our soaps and creams. Many companies will advertise natural ingredients, but often have them in such small quantities, they will not be of any benefit. They may also claim essential oils, when they could be using “nature identical”, fragrance oils, or a combo.
When you purchase a truly all natural soap, your skin will thank you.
To ensure you get the most out of your all natural soap, and because we don’t add chemical hardeners or chemical preservatives.
Don’t let your soap sit in water.
Always let it dry between uses.
It’s best to use your all natural soap within 6 to 8 months of purchase ( the same applies to
our hand made skincare products)
Store unused soap and skincare products in a dark, dry, cool area.
and of course, enjoy!
Although all our soaps and skincare products are all natural and very gentle, always do a skin patch test before using any new product.
