Q: "Do you use your own soap?"
A: Yes, I haven't bought anything other then dish soap in 3 years!
Q: "Is your soap alright for people with allergies or skin sensitivity?"
A: Our soap has not been tested specifically for people with allergies, but I can say that the soap contains very gentle ingredients such as coconut oil, sweet almond oil, olive oil, and palm oil. If you have a skin allergies, we suggest either trying I bar with no scent or trying one that is scented all naturally with essential oils.
Q: "It says on the ingredients your soap contains sodium hydroxide(Lye). How is that safe?"
A: When a lot of people start soaping they ask the question of why you would use lye, and if they can use something else. Without lye the soap wouldn't be able to saponify. Meaning it wouldn't harden up or lather. It would just be a mess of oils mixed together with some milk! Lye is a dangerous ingredient, but I have been making soap for over 3 years and I'm well versed and familiar with how to safely use it in soap. I have a safe and proven recipe I use, in which the amount of lye I use is specific and makes up a very small percentage of the mix. The lye in the soap after it's made also deactivates within several hours of the soap being made, meaning after that it's perfectly safe to bathe with.
Q: "How long does it take to make soap?"
A: The soap itself only takes me 30 minutes to make, but after it's made it has to harden in a mold, and then it has to get cured. Curing takes place on a drying rack and takes 4 weeks.
Q: "Is there anything you do with your goat milk soap that sets it apart?"
A: I've learned a lot in the 3 years I've been making soap, and many things I do with my brand of soap are different bits and pieces I've picked up from other makers. One of my, I'd say most unique, things is that unlike other makers, I actually heat treat my soap after it's been poured in the mold. I don't want to give away to much because this is a trick of the trade that took a while to perfect, but I will say this is a process that I work easily with the soap to do using the soaps own natural heat. The end product makes a much harder bar of soap that my customers and I have noticed lasts much longer than the average homemade soap!
