Shave (Option 2): Work up a lather with your hands directly onto the area to be shaved.
Shave tip: If you use a shaving mug please pour any excess water off after shaving. That will help the bar dry out. You can also cut the bar to fit into the mug.
The bars are cured to last. That said, allow to dry between uses and they will last the longest possible.
Cut full-sized bars into smaller pieces to use at more than one location or to keep for later.
Store spare bars in a dry place away from direct sunlight and heaters (avoid airtight containers and plastic bags).
Please avoid eyes.
Do not eat these products.
When travelling wrap bars in a facecloth, never in a plastic bag. The cloth will allow bars to breathe and dry out while protecting your other items from the soap.
Be careful when using the oil in the tub or shower. It may make the floor of the tub or shower slippery.
Hand-cut bar size:Approximately 110 grams. Please note, moisture evaporates from the bars as they cure, so weight varies depending on the age of the bar.
Peppermint may irritate delicate tissue.
Our product-testing promise: We promise that all of our products are tested in-house on ourselves, and by family members and friends. We do not conduct tests on animals, even pet shampoo, which is tested on ourselves before using it on any pet.
Our promise to you is that, with one exception, we will only use 100% natural ingredients in our products. What's the exception? Lye, or sodium hydroxide. Bottom line, without lye there cannot be soap, it's really that simple. It is possible to make a natural lye (e.g., from wood ash), though it is really difficult to get consistent results, which is crucially important for safe end products. Please read on for a more fulsome explanation :-)
We make all of our bars using traditional methods of combining oils and water, which is a wonderful combination of science and art. Now, as you can imagine, oil and water will not combine, no matter how hard you shake them together. Instead, a chemical reaction is required to make oil and water become an entirely new substance, soap! That chemical reaction is caused by adding lye (sodium hydroxide) to the water, then adding that solution to the melted oils.
It is really important to make sure that for every lye solution molecule there is at least one oil molecule, which results in a very well balanced and soothing soap. Every single one of our bars meets or exceeds that criteria. That is our promise to you!
