African Black Soap: Artisan Cold Process Soap


All Natural

Our assortment of Artisan Soaps are made for us by Laureen Alford using Food-Quality natural oils such as Olive Oil, Coconut Oil, Palm Oil, Avocado Oil, Shea Butter and others.

These soaps are perfect for those who have sensitive skin and cannot tolerate commercial "soaps". All of our soap is Phthalate-Free.

Cold process soap cannot be made without lye, but no lye remains in the finished bars. The lye is neutralized and used up during its chemical reaction (saponification) with the oils.

Laureen uses 5% more oils than are needed to neutralize the lye, and those leftover oils moisturize the skin. Glycerin, which also attracts and retains moisture on your skin, is a normal byproduct of saponification. All handcrafted soap is glycerin soap.

The "soap" you buy at major retailers is usually detergent that is made with petroleum chemicals, preservatives, and other synthetic ingredients that are harmful to the skin and the environment.

Commercial soap manufacturers remove the glycerin from their "soaps" and sell it to makers of other products, such as lotions.

There are variations in color and size from one bar to another because the soap is handmade.
