Allergies and Chemical Sensitivities
First, keep in mind that we did not create your allergies or sensitivities and we never claim to make products specifically for chemically sensitive or allergic individuals nor do we make claims that our products are hypoallergenic.

Some chemically sensitive people do well with our products while others do not. Every individual is unique when it comes to sensitivities and a person can be sensitive or allergic to virtually anything. All matter is a chemical including water.

If you are allergic or sensitive to certain ingredients, be sure to read the label before purchasing or using a product and always try the sample size first, if available.

If you are sensitive to scents it might be best if you bought from a walk-in store where you can smell the scents before you purchase. The majority of our customers enjoy scents.

Please do not hate us because our packaging smells so good. We make scented products and everyone who walks into our shop comments about how good it smells. The scent permeates everything in our shop included our shipping boxes and packing material. There is not anything we can do about it and we dont want to have to give up making our products with no added scent.

Some individuals with chemical sensitivities mistake cinnamon leaf oil for patchouli so keep this is mind when shopping if you tend to confuse scents or do not care for patchouli. Please keep in mind that many people love the scent of patchouli and we happily make patchouli products for our patchouli loving customers.

We do use nut products such as shea butter and mango butter in some of our natural soaps and other items. We use the same equipment for all products. We list the ingredients of our products on this website. If you have allergies or sensitivities, be sure to read the ingredients before purchasing. The same rules apply if you are sensitive to gluten. The ingredients are listed folks! Please let us know if you have any questions.

pH of Bar Soap
pH balanced soap is a good marketing ploy but deserves much more research. There is a ton of information and opinions about the pH of soap on the web if you care to explore the topic further.

pH is a measurement for liquid solutions. Accurate pH of solids cannot be attained with test strips. It goes without saying that since bar soap is a solid, the pH cannot be readily determined.

How to Care for Your Soap:
Store your handmade soaps in a cool, dark place. Each scent should be stored separately in a plastic container or freezer bag to help retain scent and to keep them from absorbing moisture from the air. Handmade soaps are rich in natural glycerin and glycerin is a humectant which attracts moisture. When in use, soaps should be kept on a soap dish that drains very well and should be allowed to dry between uses. You can find soap dishes under "Bath Accessories" on our site.

Bulk batch soaps are best keep in a plastic container such as a plastic shoe box to protect from moisture and help retain their scent.
