Artisan Soap: handmade soap coupled with artistry

Artisan Soap: handmade soap coupled with artistry

I’ll be honest – I had no idea what artisan soap was until I started making it. 

I spent so much time formulating the perfect body cream and lotion to moisturize my skin that I paid little attention to what I was using to cleanse my skin.  It was only natural that making cleansing products would be my next step.  When I set out to make soap, my goal was just to make a bar of soap. 

But . . . I’m a creative at heart, so I stood no chance against the enticing vibrant colors and swirls that embody artisan soap.

As I embarked on my new creative journey, I quickly realized that artisan soap was much more than vibrant colors and breathtaking swirls.  Artisan soap is designed and handcrafted by artists adding great care into each bar they create in small batches. Each batch has its own personality, and no two pieces are exactly the same.  Months of planning go into what every bar will look like; pairing the perfect design with just the right fragrance to tell a story or to make a statement. 

And on the inside of each bar are carefully selected ingredients that create an amazing and long-lasting bar of soap.  Our artisan soap is formulated to create a luxurious cleanser for your skin without stripping it.  Loaded with skin-loving oils like coconut, olive, palm, and shea and cocoa butter to intensely nourish your skin, leaving it looking supple, and feeling refreshed.

The plant-based oils and butters we use are rich in fatty acids, nutrients, and antioxidants, coupled with oatmeal, creamy coconut milk, and aloe vera which bring soothing and calming qualities to our soap. 

In other words, our artisan soap isn’t just pretty, our formula creates a luxuriously creamy foam sensation to treat your skin to the highest quality of cleaning experience.

Let’s look at the advantages and benefits of its highlighted ingredients:
