Don’t Eat It! Soap and Skin Care
Don’t Eat It Soap is made using a cold process method where lye (sodium hydroxide) is mixed with liquid and then combined with the oils. It is poured into a mold and sits for approximately 24 to 48 hours. After this it is unmolded and cut into bars. Next it will cure for approximately 6 weeks during which time the bar continues to harden and the Ph will continue to drop. Each batch is skin tested before being available for purchase. The primary oils used in Don’t Eat It! Soap are coconut oil and olive oil. Some also contain tallow, lard, sunflower oil, or castor oil. Other ingredients that make these soaps unique include foods, spices or herbs that come from my kitchen or garden. For instance pumpkin soap contains pumpkin that I have grown, Lavender soap contains dried lavender leaves and flowers that were grown in my garden and coffee soap is made with brewed coffee as the liquid and coffee grounds are added to the soap as well. Soap varieties vary. Unlike most commercially made soaps, the glycerin has not been removed from these soaps.
All soaps are formulated to provide a balance of hardness, cleansing, conditioning, lather and creaminess. I do not add fragrance or colorants. Don’t Eat It! Soaps are great for the whole family.
