The Soap Snob Story
It all started with an itch and an idea. As a long sufferer of eczema and psoriasis, finding the “right” commercial soap was always a daunting task. The expensive soap that worked in the Summer felt like sandpaper in the Winter. Therefore, I decided to use my love for crafting and science to make my own. As a researcher for career choice, I select key ingredients based on proven research along with knowledge of beneficial properties. Only the best ingredients goes into a Soap Snob bar.
Our gentle soaps are safe to use from your face down to your toes. Our handmade artisan soap is made with all natural vegetable oils and luxurious butters. We use natural additives and exfoliates for a unique cleansing experience, and the herbs retain their beneficial properties. Handmade soap is incredible for severe dry skin, sensitive skin as well as eczema, psoriasis & dermatitis. The oils gently cleanse your skin while nourishing, instead of stripping it clean like detergents in commercial soap since they do not contain any harsh surfactants or stripping sodium lauryl sulfates.
The Beauty and Benefit of Handmade
Saponification, or the making of soap, occurs through a chemical reaction between vegetable or animal fats, water, and sodium hydroxide (or lye). Glycerin, a natural byproduct of this process, is a humectant that attracts and retains moisture on your skin like a natural skin lotion. Commercial soaps are manufactured in large factories where glycerin is often removed from the soap and sold to manufacturers of high end cosmetics.
In a bar of handmade soap, the naturally occurring glycerin remains in the soap and provides natural moisturizing properties. Handmade soap makers pride themselves on formulating recipes using the finest quality oils and butters, whereas commercial soap manufacturers generally use the most economical ingredients available. If you have never experienced the beauty and benefit of handmade soap, you and your skin are in for a treat!
