Silk Soap for a silky experience.
Have you ever noticed sometimes the best things happen to you by
About 6 years ago my wife and I were visiting a friend of ours who
was an amateur Natural soap maker. She made all sorts of pretty
soaps and I thought this was sort of silly. The more I talked to her
the more I realized there might be something to all of this. She
noticed my neck looked irritated and red. She thought it looked like
a soap allergy and gave me a bar of her home made soap and asked me
to try it one time.
I had a constantly itchy scalp and bumps
around my hair line and places on my body that I scratched almost
until raw. And I had dealt with this problem for decades and thought
this was just something to be tolerated. Never in a million years
did I realize this was an allergy to store bought soaps. And if it
was then why would another soap help my condition?
course as you might have imagined, her soap helped dramatically. I
spent the next year refining her process, reading everything I could
read and finally arriving at a formula that was considerably better
than that first soap I tried. So much better that we call it the
‘best soap in the world’. Well that was 10’s of thousands of bars of
soap ago. We buy our materials by the 55 gallon drum now and make a
batches of 500 bars at a time. IT SELLS SO FAST, it’s all we can do
to make it fast enough. We always have drying racks filled with
thousands of bars of our Natural soap. It’s not a pretty soap. It
only comes one way. No added smells, no added coloring. But ohhh is
it good! It just melts into your skin. Your skin feels and is so
clean after a shower, some tell us they no longer need to worry
about how they smell all day.
come on, now you’re going to tell me my DOVE soap isn’t good for
The way we make real Natural soap, is a special treat.
Our secret slow process makes each bath a delightful experience. USE
OUR NATURAL SOAP AS A SHAMPOO?
Some do. It’s that gentle and the emollients we use are so good!
What about colored or dyed hair?
Yes we make no claims for pretty. We didn’t care what it looked
like. We figured we’d just give a free bar with the treatment and
get them to use it. NOT to put on display in the bathroom. What we
wanted was an effective soap that could be used between treatments.
That kept your skin clean and soft and smooth and refreshed.
It really doesn’t have an odor. You just smell clean after using our
soap. Sorry you want smell wear a perfume (or cologne). You just
can’t believe the compromises you have to make to have a soap smell.
WOW does it ever! You know how you have to lather up a wash cloth 2
or 3 times with the soap you’re now using to get all your body
clean? One time is usually all you need to wash your whole body with
our soap. It lathers like crazy! And your skin feels wonderful! AND
you know how many people throw out those other bars when they about
a third or a quarter gone, because they don’t lather anymore (mainly
because commercial soap is squeezed so hard almost all of the
natural glycerin deep inside the bar is gone), well not with our
soap. USE IT RIGHT DOWN TO THE LAST BIT. And it still lathers like
DID WE DO IT? BY NOT BEING IN A HURRY.
We found out why those ‘pretty’ soaps didn’t feel so good to use.
There are ways to speed up the process of making Natural soap. These
other guys can make it start to finish in 2 to 3 weeks. We
discovered, through experimentation, with the process and the
ingredients that we could actually slow the process down. This made
an even better soap. Our soap takes a full 2 MONTHS cure!
use this soap?
People with challenged skin, broken out skin and with other skin
problems like Acne, Dermatitis and Eczema are making their skin
worse by using store bought soaps.
What else is wrong with them?
Most are ANTI-BACTERIAL.
I thought ANTI-BACTERIAL was good for me?
For one thing, these chemicals (drugs) really don’t work that well.
(are bacteria disappearing? I DON’T THINK SO!) But what they do well
is build up bacteria’s resistance to these chemicals to the point
that when we really need these chemicals (drugs) to save our life,
they won’t work. NOT GOOD!
These chemicals actually make Acne challenged skin worse.
What about long term use of these detergents & anti-bacterials?
When I was a teen (35 years ago), it seemed that most people outgrew
acne by the time they were an adult. MSNBC recently reported that
45% of adults now suffer from acne and other similar skin problems.
Can this be related? No one knows for sure. But I think so.
What about these so called Low pH soaps? Wouldn’t they be better for
A lot of people don’t really understand pH. pH is
a measurement of a products acidity. Low pH means Acidic. High pH
means Base. 7 is considered neutral. Right now it is a catchword in
advertising to sell low pH soaps and cleansers. But fads are
sometimes just that… fads. Low pH soaps such as what Dove sells
won’t make your skin feel any better than our higher pH Natural
soap. In fact, most people are amazed at how wonderful our soap
makes their skin feel. This is because it truly gets the skin clean.
Low pH soaps don’t properly clean your skin. Leaving embedded dirt
particles, which serve as hiding places for the bacteria that causes
acne and other skin problems. Fighting skin problems is a process
that must include keeping the skin meticulously clean.
OK, so what’s in your soap?
Soap. It’s real saponified soap made from oils like soap used to be
made (Coconut, Olive, Soybean and rice bran oils – no animal
ingredients). But the old fashioned soap was harsh. 75 years ago
when grandma made soap with basically lard and lye, she didn’t know
how to fine tune the ingredients. She just threw in a handful of
this and a handful of that. Our soap’s all vegetable -high quality-
ingredients are tested, high tech and carefully crafted down to
measurements in the +- .002 range. That makes this soap refreshing
to use. Your skin feels soft and clean and wonderful. It’s hard to
explain the difference until you’ve tried it.
How is it made?
We hand mix all the natural ingredients. They are combined at
precise temperatures and then poured into large molds. After a few
days, our soap is then solid enough to be hand cut from these large
blocks into bars. We then air dry our soap for about 2 months. This
extra drying time mellows the soap. As you can see it is very time
and labor consuming. But we feel this very special soap is worth the
What does it look like?
Not too good looking. It is not spit out of a machine. Each bar is
unique and since we don’t use any dyes to color it or high pressure
to mold it, it can be ugly. OK it is ugly. Who cares?
What else is in it?
We use two EXOTIC BUTTERS as skin emollients. natural SHEA BUTTER
(from West Africa) and MANGO BUTTER (from India). We also use
APRICOT KERNAL OIL and CASTOR OIL, which are wonderful emollients.
When we tell you your skin will feel wonderful after using, along
with our finely crafted natural soap, these emollients are part of
the reason why. Most experts agree, these are the best skin
softeners and emollients available today. Way too expensive for most
soap companies, though.
Will this make my skin greasy? All those oils, butters?
No, in fact this will help balance your skins oil production. It’s a
common misconception. Products that strip oils out of your skin,
signals the skin to start producing more oil. Besides, our Natural
soap does not feel oily.
