Our soap is handmade in small batches to ensure freshness. Our soaps contains moisturizing butters and skin loving oils. Some may contain powdered herbs, micas, lakes and other natural colors. Once you receive your soap make sure they dry out between use to help them last longer. It's also a good idea to cut your soap in smaller pieces and use them as needed. I'm sure you will fall in love with natural soaps and you will not want to go back to the store bought soap. Because the soaps are handmade in small batches, the color and texture may be a little different from the actual soap that is pictured.
